MARQUETTE — Presque Isle may not be big enough for a full-sized 18-hole golf course, but the city’s recreation committee thinks it can accommodate 18 little ones.

The city commission is expected tonight to discuss the recreation panel’s recommendation that a miniature golf course be built in the park. The 18-hole course, proposed by Marquette residents Mary and David Allie, would use the old Island Store and be built in the grassy area adjacent to the building.
