PUTT IS IT ART…? is an exciting new project which brings artist-designed mini-golf to the heart of Bournemouth.

Fine Art students from the Arts University Bournemouth return to create and install their own sculptures, in a temporary redesign of the Lower Gardens Miniature Golf Course. This is the fourth time the students have brought their creativity to the golf course, and it has become an annual and beloved fixture in the park’s creative life.

The students will be working alongside internationally renowned artist and crazy golf specialist Doug Fishbone, who has previously presented an art crazy golf course at the Venice Biennale in 2015 featuring some of Britain’s leading artists such as Yinka Shonibare MBE. Fishbone has also designed courses with artists such as Jake and Dinos Chapman and David Shrigley, and worked with students on courses for the past several years.

The Lower Gardens course will be transformed from the 9 December to feature 18 unique site-specific artworks. All are welcome to join us for a round, for a fun and unexpected take on one of Bournemouth’s best-loved attractions.

The students would like to thank the local council for their hospitality and co-operation in allowing this unusual project to unfold.
