Mini golf event held inside Historic RailPark and Train Museum

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- Nearly 100 mini golfers gave it their all Thursday night at the Sip and Putt Miniature Golf Challenge inside the Historic RailPark and Train Museum in Bowling Green.

Throughout the museum and inside the train cars, nine putting greens were set up for participants to play on from 24 different teams.

Individual and team awards were given out at the end of the evening.

Jamie Johnson, the museum’s executive director, said the idea for the unique gathering was something one of her board members thought of after hearing about it at a different museum.

“We went over to that other museum and did their Sip and Putt,” said Johnson. “We were there doing work. We were checking out what they were doing and how they were doing it. We decided we could bring this to Bowling Green and we could do it better. We definitely have.”

This was the second time in the last three years the museum hosted the event.

All proceeds from Sip and Putt go right back to the museum.

WNKY evening news anchor, Max Winitz, served as the event’s emcee.
