Florida Offices Design and Build Mini-Golf Hole for Fundraiser
CH2M HILL South Florida offices sponsored the Miami-Dade Branch of the American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) First Annual Scholarship Mini-Golf Tournament held at Zoo Miami
. The fundraiser helped raise money for scholarships that the Miami-Dade Branch of ASCE awards to University of Miami and Florida International University students every year.
As one of the sponsors, CH2M HILL was asked to design and build a hole for the course. South Florida staff volunteered their time to plan, develop design drawings, and construct the hole over the course of several weeks.
The completed hole was modeled the water cycle. The golfer putts the ball into “outhouse” and subsequently putts the ball into the “water reuse plant.” The ball then exits the “water reuse plant” through a “sprinkler head” onto the green for a shot into the final hole.
The event was judged by local celebrities and proved to be a huge success. The tournament had 18 mini-golf-hole-sponsors and attendance by more than 100 members of the local engineering community and their families. The event raised more than $2,000 for scholarships, and although CH2M HILL didn’t take home the first-place trophy this year, the staff had fun working together for a great cause.
