2020 Putt Putnam County Mini Golf
For (or perhaps “Fore!”) our 5th Annual mini-golf building competition we’re going to have the hole competition in front of Castlemakers on Franklin Street. We’ll have the mini-golf holes on display during Greencastle’s October 2nd First Friday from 6-8 pm, on Franklin Street just east of the square where anyone can play the holes.
This family-oriented event is open to anyone in the community. It’s a great opportunity for your family, a group of friends or organizations in Putnam County to work together making a mini-golf hole. 2020 guidelines will be out soon, but in the meantime look at the 2019 guidelines. You can also read about the previous competitions in a 2018 blog post, 2017 and 2016. Also be sure to check out our PuttCode competition, programming Lego robots to drop a golf ball into one of the mini-golf holes.
The event started in 2016 as a miniature golf course building competition for youth, which we held at the Putnam County Public Library. The original 7 holes were built in groups of 3-5 people per team, along with a mentor to help the younger groups. In 2017 it was open to everyone and we had the putt-offs on Franklin Street.
