Minigolf breaks the ice during Freshers’ Week

Universities and colleges pull out all the stops in September/October to make Freshers’ Week as fun as possible for their new intake of students. Societies scramble to recruit members, industrial amounts of beer are drunk and everybody gets to know their classmates for the coming year. A big part of the ‘ents’ budget goes on concerts and shows, but the students’ union needs to be a fun place in between these events as well.

We have found over the years that minigolf fits the bill nicely as an icebreaker during Freshers’ Week. It’s fun, colourful and as competitive as you want to make it. Students love to mingle over a round of minigolf, and it can even raise funds for charity at the same time if the students’ union organises a sponsored putt or mini-golfathon. Here are a few snaps from just two of the many Freshers’ Weeks Putterfingers have supplied.

We can supply various sizes of course from 4 holes to 9 holes, and the putting surface will not damage floors thanks to its rubberised backing. It can be used outdoors too, anywhere with a reasonably flat surface such as a lawn, plaza or campus path. We supply everything needed: putting surface, side bumpers, putters, balls, score cards and pencils, putting cups, obstacles and hole cones. A complete portable minigolf course can fit into a standard lift shaft, so whichever floor of the students’ union it need to get to, that shouldn’t be a problem.

The putting surface tiles are square and made from astro grass on a rubberised backing. They interlock together to create a variety of different hole shapes, and this means a course can be built around existing objects and furniture – there’s no need to clear a large space to set it up.
