Mini-golf course at Dairy Queen dedicated to Crime Alert Berks County

Course will donate 20% of proceeds to crime stoppers organization

Mini-golf course raises money to fight crime

KENHORST, Pa. - Stopping crime one putt at a time is the goal of a new miniature golf course.

The golf course, located between the Dollar Tree and Sears Hardware stores in the Kenhorst Shopping Center in Kenhorst, has been named the Crime Alert Golf Park, its owner, Hamid Chaudhry, announced Monday.

All of Monday's proceeds and 20 percent of future proceeds at the golf park will go to Crime Alert Berks County, said Chaudhry, who also owns the Dairy Queen in the same shopping center.

"Crime affects everybody, especially in my business," said Chaudhry. "When I see a lot of area businesses, banks, convenience stores, fast food joints being robbed, I think I've been dodging the odds, and thank God, so far, I've been very lucky."

In the past month, Chaudhry has used the course to raise more than $4,000 for several area school and sports programs, but he also designed it to be a safe and fun hangout for kids.

"That's the whole idea of the pricing is $2. Come and play ping-pong. Come and play mini-golf. Come and shoot the pool, soon. Coming soon, a pool table. And all for $2 for 17 and under, just one gate price," said Chaudhry, adding that admission is $4 for adults.

Chaudhry also owns Dairy Queens on Route 422 in Exeter Township and at the Berkshire Mall in Wyomissing. He also has a new restaurant in the works. It will be called the Mustang Grill, featuring a Southwest menu, and will also be located in the Kenhorst Shopping Center, next to the post office.
