Miniature Golf Course To Be Installed Here: Within the next week or two an 18-hole miniature golf course, to be known as the “Patsy Putter Course,” will be installed on the vacant lot just north of the Gulf Ice and Cold Storage Co. plant. The course will be owned and operated by the Arcade Theatre. Robert D. Conner Jr. of Birmingham has been here for several days this week working out the plans for the course. Work will begin immediately toward installing same.
Mr. Conner states that the course will be lighted and will be one of the beauty spots of Evergreen. It will be open all day and until 11 o’clock at night. Courses similar to the one to be installed here are being placed in all leading cities throughout Alabama, he says.
