Monster Mini Golf Coming To Nanuet

Jerry Streim’s interest in Monster Mini Golf started about two and a half years ago after his son attended a birthday party at the Paramus location. He came back raving about the great time he had and insisted his father take him back. That visit hooked Streim, an avid golfer, who inquired about opening a franchise site of the glow in the dark 18-hole course.  

After signing up with Monster Mini Golf in December 2010, Streim began looking at properties in Westchester and Long Island before finding location at 33 Route 304 in Nanuet.

He said golf will be just part of the experience. All of Monster Mini Golf’s 30 plus locations have “unbelievable art work” which Streim said is hand painted.  

“Each is individually geared toward the town’s history,” he explained on Tuesday. “There will be something with the Hudson River in there.”  

Construction started on the 12,500 square foot location, Streim hopes to have a grand opening date set sometime next week.  

“I would be excited if we would open up by the end of June,” said the Woodcliff Lake, NJ resident.  

Streim expects to hire between 15 and 20 employees and said he is looking for people with great personalities and friendly who get Monster’s concept. The course will be fun for all ages, challenging enough for adults and easy to navigate for kids. Its playlist of about 1500 songs includes classic titles from the 1950s through 1990s that are geared to parents.  

“I need great people who understand this is a show,” he said.  

Monster’s web site describes the courses as scary with “monster cool décor” with animated and custom designed props at each turn in the course. The Nanuet location includes 5,000 square feet for the golf course and 6,500 for two private party rooms for children’s birthday parties and other events in addition to a gaming area.  

“This business is all about fun,” he said. “I sell fun.”  

When it opens, Monster Mini Golf’s summer hours will be Tuesday through Thursday from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. and closed on Mondays. Winter hours will be different.

Admission costs vary. Children below a certain height will get in for free while "Little Monsters" who are smaller than Monster’s Stella character will pay $8 and "Big Monsters" who are taller will pay $9.

He expects to hand out lots of prizes to kids while they are playing and afterwards when they redeem the tickets they have won for gifts but he is not overlooking the adults. Streim, who has worked on Wall Street and in sports marketing, anticipates older players will visit the course in the evenings and plans to partner with local businesses to offer gift certificates and discounts.   

"It’s all about the kids,” he said. “But at nighttime it’s all about the adults having a good time.”
