2017 Putt Putnam County Mini Golf

Our 2nd Annual mini-golf building competition is now started and we’re going to try a new venue for the competition, the November First Friday! We’re planning to line the sidewalks with mini-golf holes on Franklin Street in front of Castlemakers November 3rd from 5:30-7:30 pm.

In 2016 our first annual miniature golf course building competition was a big success. This started as a Castlemakers Kids project last year and we ended up with 7 holes built by groups of 3-5 people per team.  There’s a few pictures below included to give you ideas. This year we’ll still have the youth built mini-golf holes, but anyone can build a mini-golf hole and you don’t need enter the competition to display one.

You can download the mini-golf hole guidelines; we’re suggesting that the basic platform be 3′ by 7′. If resources are a problem in building one, or you need more information, please email chris@castlemakers org. You can also read about the previous competition in this blog post.

Rain/backup date is 11/18 at the Putnam County Public Library from 10-12:30. We’ll post more information as we get closer to the event.
