On Saturday, Nov. 4, Ohio University Libraries is welcoming all dads and students to campus during Dads Weekend 2023 for the 11th annual Alden Open, a mini-golf course spanning the third, fourth and fifth floors of Alden Library. The event runs from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. and is free to students and parents alike — as well as the entire OHIO community. Players will be available to join the activity until the call for the last tee time at 3:30 p.m. 

The event is a wonderful opportunity of showing off the OHIO spirit and a time to experience having fun just being a Bobcat.

With the theme and design of the course changing every year, it’ll definitely be a new and fun-filled experience for all that participate.
