Kansas City, MO - A unique 9-hole miniature golf course is coming this summer to the grounds of Kansas City's Nelson-Atkins Museum in Kansas City.

The course has an artistic theme in keeping with its location.

"Artists designed mini golf holes that were inspired by works in our permanent collection," said Casey Claps, Nelson-Atkins spokeswoman.

Designers chose a variety of inspirations. Holes are based on modern art, impressionists, even a 15th century Chinese vase.

"The first thing you'll see when you play is our Wayne Thiebaud Jawbreaker Machine, which is a larger-than-life gumball machine," Claps said. "It takes pop art to that next place where it brings it to life."

The mini golf course opens Memorial Day weekend and will close at the end of summer. Tickets to play are $14 for adults, $9 for kids.
