Earlier this week, I stopped by the museum to watch Kral and Elizabeth Hallock and David Wishner of E+D Architecture and Design install their contributions to the course. Hallock and Wishner's construction, called "Bridging the Bay," features a 10-foot 8-inch model of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge that spans small-scale representations of Pinellas and Manatee counties. (Golfers must putt their ball over the bridge into a hole on the other side.) They collaborated with Austin Fox of Fox Builders and Hot Shot Welding to create the piece.
Kral's installation promises a hole-in-one to anyone who plays. He built a wooden platform out of recycled materials with a wide, downward-sloping pipe leading directly from the tee into the hole. Painted fire engine red and adorned with encouraging signs, the piece is designed to bring success within reach of even the least experienced golfer.
"I'm a golfer, and it's frustrating, so I want people to have a chance," Kral says.
Visitors can obtain putters and balls at the museum's information desk; a $3 donation is suggested to play. The course will remain installed until Feb. 17.
