Hire minigolf for your Summer / Autumn fundraiser!
Sponsored minigolf fundraising events have been a tradition for years in the United States, but are now catching on over here. Fundraisers are discovering how good minigolf can be to raise money for good causes.
Here are a few examples of how minigolf has been used to raise funds and provide a fun day for participants and exposure for local businesses at the same time.
Putterfingers supplied the minigolf at a Summer fundraiser for the St Nicholas Hospice, Bury St Edmunds. Players were sponsored per hole, and passersby in the busy shopping centre (The Arc) could play a few holes too in exchange for a donation, while they waited for their families to finish their shopping or just for a bit of fun.
A beach charity event was held at Cullercoats Harbour to raise funds for the local lifeboat. The RNLI is almost entirely funded by donations – 95% of its income is from the public’s generosity – so fundraising is a constant need. Minigolf was the answer for this event.
It’s also possible to improvise a crazy golf course, as in this example of a library building a course out of books and having customers putt around for a donation. Putterfingers course hires do cost some money up front but are easier – we deliver and collect, and set the course up for you if you are not too far away from us. Our putting surface is high quality for a better feel and performance and can be set up into any shape desired. You also get all the balls, putters, obstacles, holes, hole markers, scorecards and pencils you need.
