2019 Putt Putnam County Mini Golf
For (or perhaps “Fore!”) our 4th Annual mini-golf building competition we’re going to continue the tradition started in 2017 and have the hole competition in front of Castlemakers on Franklin Street. We’ll have the mini-golf holes on display during Greencastle’s October 4th First Friday from 6-8 pm, on Franklin Street just east of the square where anyone can play the holes.
The 2019 guidelines will be out shortly, but in the meantime you can refer to the 2018 Guidelines as a reference. This family-oriented event is open to anyone in the community. 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. We ended up with 7 holes built by 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.
