The Janus Golf and Batting Center opened in mid-June with a refreshed appearance.
Jerry Jamison, development & communications director for Janus Development Services, said the nonprofit has purchased new golf balls and mats for the driving range.
“We have also added one new sand trap on the driving range and have started building two more,” Jamison said.
The Janus Golf and Batting Center, 1740 Willow View Rd., Noblesville, is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.
Jamison said Lowe’s Heroes, a company-wide volunteer program, came out late in the fall of 2019 and added new carpet and landscape bricks to the miniature golf course.
“They even added a wagon-wheel obstacle on one hole,” Jamison said. “They also put a lot of crushed stone around the course to make it look more finished and uniform. All the wood has been repainted, and we bought new cups for all the holes and added a golf pin flag to mark each hole number. There is also a new putting (mat) at each hole to tee off from. We have added little bug and frog yard art around the course to add some whimsy. We have all new putters and golf balls.
‘We have had a lot of volunteers and staff out working tirelessly to get the course back in good shape after the long, hard winter.”
The batting cages have all been stocked with new baseballs and softballs.
“Not all machines will be open each day as we are trying to keep social distancing at the machines,” Jamison said. “A big plus is we have gotten rid of the quarter machines to pay for batting. Now, you pay by the hour to use the machines. That makes it so much easier on the customers and gives them more quality time in the cage.”
Jamison said a new enthusiastic team of associates work at the center.
“We are also looking forward to start having clients assist in the daily operation in the next couple of weeks,” he said.
