Tee at the Cathedral: House of Worship Adds Mini-golf Course

Tuesday, 30 July 2019 10:38 AM

LONDON (AP) — Putts are joining prayers at Britain's Rochester Cathedral, where a mini-golf course has been installed inside the medieval house of worship.

The course runs along the central nave and features a bridge-themed design. It's intended to teach young people about engineering, and also has spiritual overtones.

The cathedral's Rev. Rachel Phillips says it's hoped "visitors will reflect on the bridges that need to be built in their own lives and in our world today."

The course is open throughout August, though not at times when services are held.

Not everyone is thrilled with the addition to the cathedral 30 miles (50 kilometers) southeast of London, parts of which are almost 1,000 years old.

In Tuesday's Daily Telegraph, religious commentator Tim Stanley called the golf course "an act of desecration."
