The City of Hendersonville offers the community an 18-hole Mini Golf Course at Edwards Park named after longtime mini golf staff member and community treasure, Laura E. Corn.
The course is ADA-accessible (ADA accessible holes are #1 - #9 and #18).
“It is the happy voices of families large and small celebrating hole-in-ones that makes this beautiful park come alive!!!” - Laura E. Corn
Edwards Park is a 1.47 acre park located on the corner of North Main and Locust streets owned and operated by the City of Hendersonville. The park, which was reimagined and reopened on October 19, 2023, includes the following amenities:
- Laura E. Corn Mini Golf Course: 18 hole, ADA-accessible mini golf course that includes challenging holes, a water fall, and themed features highlighting local historical and tourist attractions in Hendersonville, Henderson County and surrounding communities
- Concession Stand: During Mini Golf operating hours, a concession stand operates to provide players with putters and balls, as well as offering a variety of snacks and drinks for purchase
- Restrooms: Park restroom facilities are available during course operational hours
- Playground: A playground and musical playground features are located at Edwards Park
- Bike Corral: Bike racks, bike repair station and bike pump are available on the North Main side of the park
- The Boy Scouts utilize the cabins located at Edwards Park
The course theme of the Laura E. Corn Mini Golf was patterned after the previous course located at Boyd Park. Seven items from Boyd Park were refurbished and relocated to Edwards Park and nine new features were commissioned or crafted specifically for the reimagined course.
An amazing group of community partners, artists, craftspeople and collaborators worked together to create a truly unique and historically significant Hendersonville mini golf experience.
