The Mount Pleasant Golf & Country Club

 

MPGCC 2

 

The Mount Pleasant Golf & Country Club, 2000-2001, was an engagement art project consisting of a 18-hole miniature golf course on 3 sites in central Vancouver accompanied by an ad campaign, contests and workshops. This participatory artwork included the local community through an exhaustive consultative process to develop and then play a popular family-oriented activity and to move through the inner-city neighbourhood of Mt. Pleasant with putter and ball in hand. The glossy corporate-style brochure included a map of the sites with a scorecard that doubled as a quiz testing one’s knowledge about golf and Mt. Pleasant. Lifetime memberships, green fees, and putter rentals were free. The project was inaugurated with a Tournament that attracted over 600 players.
