Reopening Crafton site may be par for the course
Crafton’s miniature golf course may be back in business.
Councilwoman Debbie Sappie said the borough’s recreation board has approached the Little Cougars football organization to see if it would have any interest in reopening the course at West Steuben Street and Linden Avenue.
She said Little Cougars would be open to the idea of running it full-time.
“Since the Little Cougars are down there throughout the summer with their practice, we thought we would talk with them to see if they would be interested in running the Putt-Putt,” Sappie said.
The recreation board suggested Crafton Public Library personnel run the course during the weekend of Crafton Celebrates in July.
The borough owns the golf course property.
Members of Carlynton High School’s student government cleaned up the site in time for Halloween in October — dubbing it “Grim’s Ghostly Mini Golf” — after it sat dormant for more than 10 years.
Crafton officials said Little Cougars should get permission from the school district to use the property before signing any lease agreement with the borough.
When Carlynton students took over the course at Halloween, council members approved a one-month, $1 lease between the borough and the school district for students to use the facility.
