Milltown Mini Golf
Congratulations to Milltown Mini Golf on 33 years of success on Lansdowne Street.
Owners Barry and Lynda Cross recently announced that their landlord has sold the property to a developer and, thus, this summer is your last chance to play this fun course. Barry and Lynda have not only entertained thousands of people for those 33 years, but have also helped local charities raised tens of thousands of dollars as well.
So give Milltown one more visit this summer — and a tip of the hat to Lynda and Barry Cross. For more information, visit www.milltownminigolf.com.
