Fun Facts about Mini Golf to Prepare for PPP

With our Putts & Pints For A Purpose event quickly approaching, here are some fun facts we wanted to share with you!  

There is actually a difference between Putt-Putt and Mini Golf!  

  • Putt-Putt courses are designed for low-scoring games with a lot of holes-in-one with an outcome of prizes or money.  
  • Mini golf courses incorporate wildly creative design features and lots of obstacles, so players are often trying to make the hole in a baseline of two shots. Usually just something fun to have a night out with family and or friends.
