“Hey Google, where can I play mini golf for free in Atlanta next week?
Answer: The Atlanta Beltline.
Google is opening two full pop-up mini golf courses in the city from Thursday, July 26 to Sunday, July 29. The four-day, public event is the last stop on a summer tour that included New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles.
The course will include voice-activated elements, asking players to use Google Home’s voice assistant as they navigate the course and obstacles, a press release said. The interactive advertisement is designed to show people ways they can use the device to do everyday things, such as turn on a TV show, play music or turn on the lights.
Everyone who plays a full course gets a pair of golf socks, and a chance to win a Google Home Mini or Max. Those who don’t want to play a full game can do the “Fast Pass” hole for a photo opportunity and a chance to win a Mini.
The course will be located at Common Ground, a redevelopment by Third & Urban of the former Western Electric Building, which is already home to New Realm Brewing Company. It’s located at 550 Somerset Terrace NE and will open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
