Back to list October 04, 2013 Successful First Season for Rich Valley Golf’s Miniature Golf Course CARLISLE, PA (October 4, 2013) – With its 18-hole, Par 71 Championship golf course and its 3-hole beginner’s course, Rich Valley Golf was well on its way to offering a full range of golfing opportunities for people of all ages and skill levels. The addition of their 18 -hole miniature golf course allows them to offer a family-friendly option to complement the courses tailored to more seasoned golfers. The new course, one of the only in the area built with a handicap-accessible portion, is beautifully designed with waterfalls and hardscape to replicate the look and feel of a traditional golf course. Owner Jeff Austin commented that the miniature course has been very successful as it allows families to come spend time together, often introducing golf to a younger generation. The course also has introduced more people to the onsite restaurant, Nolo’s Bar & Restaurant. “We’ve found that after their round of golf, the restaurant offers the perfect stop for dinner or a snack,” said Austin. From the miniature course, golfers can “graduate” to the 3-hole beginners’ course which mimics the full course while allowing those new to the sport to gain experience without feeling rushed. Cumberland Area Economic Development Corporation (CAEDC) was pleased to provide financing utilizing two of our in-house loan programs, the Cumberland Small Business Fund and the Tourism Infrastructure Loan Fund, to facilitate the completion of this project.
