You'll struggle to find fancier mini golf than that on the rooftop of the Walker Art Center this summer.

The popular Minneapolis museum has announced the return of its Skyline Mini Golf, its one-of-a-kind course featuring 10 artist-designed holes.

This year there are two new holes at the course, designed by Twin Cities-based aficionados Tom Loftus and Robin Schwartzman.

Hole 1 will be the "Color Wheel," which will allow up to four players to putt together at the same time to see who can get the ball in the hole first.

The second new hole, Hole 10, is called "Piece of Cake" as players hit their balls up a ramp that's designed like – you guessed it – a piece of cake.

Of course, there will be the return of old favorites including the Warhol-themed Brillo Pad hole.

Even if you're not into mini golf, the rooftop provides a heck of a view across downtown Minneapolis, and there will be a selection of snacks, beer and soda to buy.

Skyline Mini Golf re-opens on Thursday, May 16 and will run till Sunday, Sept. 29.

Tickets cost $10 – $8 for Walker members and kids aged 7-18 – and is free for kids under the age of 6.

Each golfing ticket can also be redeemed for a $5 admission to the gallery.
