Hitch and Putt: a perfect minigolf wedding

Minigolf wedding
The Saunbys chose minigolf and our garden games for their wedding entertainment

With the kind permission of the bride and groom, we’d like to share the minigolf wedding of Dawn and James Saunby, which took place on the 4th of August at Newton House Barns in South Derbyshire. The Saunbys chose to entertain their guests with a full entertainment package from Putterfingers which included a Supersize minigolf course complemented by a set of Garden Games.

If you’re wondering what the garden games are, you can find out by following the link above. The Saunbys went for Space Hoppers, Four in a Row, Croquet and Skittles. At their Derbyshire minigolf wedding these games were positioned around the minigolf course for guests to have a go at, either while waiting to play minigolf or just for the pleasure of knocking over skittles, bouncing around on a space hopper, puzzling over the next move in four in a row, or pegging out at croquet. It all made for a genteel wedding party – except perhaps for the space hoppers which are huge fun but require leaving your dignity behind before you get on!

It really was a charming wedding and we thoroughly enjoyed setting up the Supersize course and chatting to the lovely guests. We wish Dawn and James a very happy future together!

The Newmarket Wedding Show on the 3rd of September 2017 at stand G20

Come and meet us if you’re going to be around!

Putterfingers in GoHen’s Top 50 Wedding Entertainers!

Wedding minigolf, wedding entertainers

For over ten years Putterfingers have been diligently supplying crazy golf to wedding parties to make sure the guests have a fun time. We beaver away behind the scenes delivering and setting up the courses, dealing directly with the venue or with the bride and groom and their family. We supply the best crazy golf equipment for hire and we’re nice people, so it’s lovely to get a bit of recognition from time to time. This week hen party planning website GoHen have included us in the Top 50 UK Wedding Entertainers Guide. Here’s what GoHen said about us:

Top 50 wedding entertainers 2017

We’ve always known that minigolf is just as entertaining as magicians, casinos, singers, bands, karaoke, fairground rides and dancers. So it’s good to see our crazy golf hire service listed alongside all those other favourite wedding party entertainers.

As GoHen say, ‘Sometimes weddings can a little bit boring. There, we said it! But while the bride and groom are off posing for the perfect wedding photo, guests can sometimes get a little bit lost.’

We’ve always done our best to make wedding parties more fun by giving guests a challenging but enjoyable game that can be played by all ages. What better way to bring wedding guests together than letting each one grab a putter and get on the minigolf course? Everyone from Grumpy Gramps to Tiny Tim can have a go, and that’s when the smiles start spreading around the wedding party. Crazy golf isn’t terribly noisy, so that guests can actually hear each other speak, and that helps them to socialise. They can take the game as seriously or light-heartedly as they please. Uncle Fred might want to place a bet on a game, whereas Auntie Mabel might just wat to have a friendly game with the kids. Either way, it works and is absorbing fun for everyone.

8 reasons to hire portable minigolf from Putterfingers

1. It’s portable

A complete Putterfingers crazy golf course fits into the back of an average family car, so you can drive it wherever you want to set up. No power supply is required, so in theory you could set it up on top of Ben Nevis, although obviously that would be mad. Still, it’s not called crazy golf for nothing.

Our courses are best suited to any reasonably level indoor or outdoor surface, anywhere you choose.

2. Easy Assembly

No bulky wooden or metal frames to lay down. Our interlocking 1m x 1m astro grass tiles form the playing surface. Transform your garden, indoor room, office or event venue into a crazy golf course in 30 minutes!

3. Tricky Obstacles

Think our obstacles look innocent? Heh heh. It takes a steady hand to tackle the curves of the Volcano and just the right amount of speed on the ball to negotiate the twists of the Acapulco. They can challenge all ages and experience levels of minigolfer.

4. Hire a Course by Post

You don’t have to be beside the seaside to enjoy our crazy golf!  Our portable crazy golf hire transports easily via courier to your chosen venue so that you can enjoy for as long as you like -a one day event, a weekend hire or long term if you require.

5. Any Weather (even all round British weather!)

Not just for outside, the portable crazy golf course is rubber backed and won’t mark floors indoors.  Have you an unused space – unutilised sports court, school assembly hall, hotel atrium, roof top terrace, empty office? For outdoors, rain doesn’t stop play because the tiles drain through the holes in the bottom!

7. Modular Flexibility

Play Tetris with minigolf tiles! The modular nature of our courses means you can build each hole the way you want, to suit the venue and floor space available. Whether it’s 4 holes or 9 holes, the flexibility means they can fit almost any space!

Wedding mini golf prize winner photos!

Every now and then we feel like running a competition to spread the minigolf love. In November’s Newmarket Wedding Show we offered the chance to win a free wedding mini golf course. The challenge? Take a photo of yourselves in the special wedding face in hole board from Photocutouts and share it on social media. The winners, chosen at random out of a hat by our lovely Shelley, were Kat and Chris Price, whose wedding took place at Bedford Lodge, Newmarket on Easter Monday. Here’s Shelley at our offices pulling the winning photo out of a hat.

Kat and Chris have kindly sent us some photos of the wedding mini golf course. It was a beautiful day, but even if the weather hadn’t been quite so friendly, the Putterfingers course would have stayed useable because of the quick-drain astro grass matting that makes up the putting surface, which ensures that water does not gather and leaves the surface dry to putt on after a shower.

As you can see, the course works just as well outdoors as indoors. Any reasonably flat surface can be used to lay it out on.

The competition combined Putterfingers crazy golf with our sister company Photo Cutouts, who make face in hole boards for every occasion including weddings.

Such a beautiful location, and the minigolf went down a treat with the guests.

A wedding mini golf course keeps young ones amused and can challenge grown-ups as well. It’s not as easy as it looks to get a hole in one. Warning: minigolf is very addictive!
