By Leslie Zemsky  
January 16, 2018

Calling all creative makers…We are looking to commission a few  new holes ( 2-3) for 2018 play at Larkin Links, a “nano”- sized golf course in Larkinville.

Larkin Links opened in 2015.  Each year we retire a couple of holes to make way for some new ones. Every hole is unique and small does not  mean easy to play!

The course is located next to Larkin Square at 763 Seneca Street in Larkinville.  We set out putters and balls each day for free play on the course. The course will be set back up in late May and remain open through October.

Winning submissions will receive a $1000 stipend to design and fabricate the hole. The hole will be delivered to Larkin Square the week of May 21st, 2018 ready for play!

Click here for an application and more information. Proposals are due back February 28th, 2018.
