In 2015 HUB BUB AiR, Robin Schwartzman, decided the final product of her residency would be a 9-hole mini golf course in the heart of downtown Spartanburg. With generous donations from local Spartanburg businesses, this was made a reality and the Sparkle City Mini-Putt, a free-to-play course stands between Main and Broad Streets just north of Church Street.
In an innovative format HUB BUB partnered with local businesses to make playing the course simple and free. Those looking to play simply visit one of the five downtown businesses that hold putters, balls, and scorecards and leave a picture ID to rent the items. Players are also welcome to bring their own putters and balls to the course.
The five businesses that rent materials to play are:
Hub City Scoops
The Local Hiker
Little River Coffee Bar
