Mini-golf is coming to Downtown Abacoa.
The premier putt at the 18-hole course should be in the summer, said Downtown Abacoa owner Josh Simon.
“There will be a food shack that will have rotating items from different restaurants in Abacoa,” said Simon of the course being built on a vacant lot at the northeast corner of Main Street and Chancellor Drive.
The 36-hole Lighthouse Cove miniature golf course, which recently expanded, opened in 2013. The $1 million expansion, including renovations to the mini-golf course, includes a playground and aquarium.
