The Quirky Coal Mining Themed Attraction You’ll Only Find In West Virginia

The next time you find yourself traveling north on I-79, take a short break at exit 137, the East Park Avenue exit near Fairmont. It’s here that you’ll find the most unusual tribute to the history of coal mining in the Mountain State: a quirky themed putt putt course that not only features coal mining, but also uses old equipment from a mining operation as permanent features of each new hole. It’s appropriately named, Coal Country Miniature Golf.

Coal Country Miniature Golf is located approximately a mile from exit 137 on Interstate 79. The address is 22 Coal Country Ln., Fairmont, WV 26554. It’s open seven days a week with hours that vary widely. Peak summer hours are 11:00 a.m to 11:00 p.m. If you’d like to call ahead to make sure they’re open, then the number is (304)336-9300.
