Minigolf brightens all kinds of events!

What kind of events can include minigolf?

Minigolf is a great addition to any event. It gets people socialising (and competing!) and can be used simply for fun, to promote a brand or message, or to raise funds for charity.

So, what types of events are we talking about? Here’s a selection of happenings where minigolf can be a fantastic ingredient to spice things up and create a memorable day.

Corporate events

Awards ceremonies, product launches, marketing drives, annual dinners … any business bash can have a minigolf course laid out to entertain guests. It’s the ideal activity to do while having a drink and socialising. Everybody can join in and take on the hole-in-one challenge or see who can get round the course in the fewest strokes. One caveat though: things can get competitive! It’s fascinating to people-watch at corporate events with minigolf and see who is the most competitive, who comes out of their shell more than usual, who is a good team player. Management, take note!

Schools and Colleges

Open days, fetes, fresher’s weeks, sports days, end-of-term reward days, proms … they can all be livened up with a minigolf course. We deliver the day before the event and take it away the day after. If the event is on a Saturday, you get the course free for an extra day! We’ll come and whisk it away on the Monday or next working day. We’re happy to work directly with the venue if you wish, so you don’t have to worry about the logistics.

Charity Fundraising

Minigolf is ideal for charity fundraising because of the wide range of people who can participate. Unlike a sponsored run, people don’t need to exert themselves too much, but just give up some of their time for a gentle putt around the course. All ages can participate. We supply a variety of putter lengths for all heights, and the courses are wheelchair-friendly, too. So really there’s no excuse for not joining in and putting for your charity!

You can organise a putt-a-thon (sponsored per hole). Get local businesses involved too – they can each sponsor a hole. We’re happy to help with branding each hole to its sponsor so they get some publicity too. For more on charity fundraising, see our page on it.

Weddings

Ah, the wedding party. How do you keep everyone entertained? Will it be a flop? Not with mini golf! It keeps the kids busy by giving them something to do, and can be laid out indoors or outdoors on any reasonably level surface. We can deal direct with the venue so the bride and groom and their families don’t need to worry about the logistics of delivering, setting up taking down and taking away the minigolf course.

Pubs & Hotels

If you run a pub, hotel or catering establishment, what better way to get more punters in than to give them a fun game to play? You can hire a course for one-off or annual events and promotions, or buy one to use whenever you like. How about organising a minigolf league? It makes a change from darts, pool, skittles and quizzes, and your place could become the talk of your locality.

Putting the Fun into Corporate Fun Days

Back in September we were invited to a Corporate Fun Day for Sealey Tools business in Bury St Edmunds to celebrate the opening of their new £10 million Service Centre.  Sealeys is an established business in our local town and is one of the largest suppliers of garage and workshop equipment in the UK.

Sealey Tools Corporate Fun Day

Their Family Day offered a range of activities from a casino, rodeo bull, bouncy castles, face painting and lots of activities for the strong 360 strong employee base and their families.  The idea of the Family Day was to celebrate the new service centre and for the employees and their families to check out Mum and Dad’s place of work.

Positioned in the warehouse area, we set our 9 holes and brought along a couple of our PicturePutt to get everybody in the party mood.  Along with the entertainment, free food and drinks was provided for all employees. I enjoyed a mean gourmet hot dog and a few non alcoholic beverages….there would definitely have been a few sore heads on the Sunday morning 🙂

We had a number of players of all ages who played the course several times over with lots of positive feedback.

Along with the team at Castle Capers, whose offices are based over the road from our base, meant we had the entertainment for the families covered!

Here is Mike and his team overseeing the Rodeo Bull:

Our youngest participant was just 2 and she had a great time trying her luck at a hole in one!

And apart from a few stray balls amongst the machinery in the warehouse, we had a great time too and was glad to read that the families all had a fun time!
