2020 Putt Putnam County Mini Golf
Unfortunately caught Covid-19 like many other Putnam County events. With the event being held the last 2 years at First Friday in downtown Greencastle (which has been canceled for the rest of 2020) and indoor restrictions we’ve postponed the event for this year. There’s a chance we’ll have a few of last year’s holes on display at a Saturday Farmer’s Market in October.
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. Here’s 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.
