Alden Open Mini Golf Course Brings in a Huge Crowd for Dads Weekend

During Dads Weekend, Alden Library is always filled with OHIO students, faculty, staff and their families looking to take home the title of Alden Open champion. On Nov. 2, at the seventh annual Alden Open held on the third, fourth and fifth floors of the Library, the scene was no different.

Mini golf participants had the choice to either play nine holes for $5 or 18 holes for $10, with all of the proceeds going to the Student Research and Creative Activity Expo, which will take place on April 9, 2020. 

Check out some of the photos below. Look for more images coming from the Alden Open on the Libraries’ Flickr page.
