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.

Happy days for 2 new crazy golf courses

Ghetto Golf is number one attraction in Liverpool

Ghetto Golf Liverpool minigolf course

Ghetto Golf, the new themed crazy golf extravaganza in Liverpool, has been listed by a local paper as the number one new thing to do in the city.

The Liverpool Echo has published a list of 15 things you can do in Liverpool that you couldn’t do a year ago, and Ghetto Golf comes in at number one, above gin tours, new stores, the British Music Experience Exhibition, Nerf guns, new restaurants and new nightclubs. It seems crazy golf is ‘bigger than Jesus’ in Liverpool, to quote John Lennon.

We blogged about it back in November just before it opened and it’s great that it is a success. The 18-hole crazy golf wonderland has a cocktail bar and street food stand and can be found in the old Cairns Brewery, Upper Parliament Street. The brainchild of locals Danny Bolger and Kip Piper, Ghetto Golf makes full use of the large indoor space the old brewery provides. Players putt through a full-size house, a hippy caravan and an old sailing boat, to the music of a DJ perched in a treehouse. It’s a surreal and anarchic crazy golf experience that Liverpudlians love.

UK’s most Northerly minigolf course contributes to Orkney tourism

 

Burray Orkney Minigolf Course

Here’s another new minigolf course we blogged about last year that is doing well. It’s the most Northerly course in the UK, at Burray on Orkney.

Orkney has seen a boom in tourism during 2016. VisitScotland Island manager Barbara Foulkes said, ‘ … Orkney has enjoyed one of the best years for tourism in recent memory, with accommodation providers, attractions and other businesses all reporting increases in business in 2016.’

She partly attributed some of this success to the Burray minigolf course. ‘A culmination of a year-long effort by the local community, the 12-hole course made headlines across the country when it opened in April and Britain’s most northerly crazy golf course went on to become a big hit with locals and visitors alike.’

We’re chuffed to bits that these new, permanent minigolf attractions are doing well. With minigolf so popular and such good fun for guests, why not have your own minigolf course? We provide the UK’s leading portable modular minigolf courses that can be set up anywhere in minutes. We provide everything you need including putting surface, putters, balls, obstacles, hole markers and scorecards. If you are planning an event, wedding or party in 2017, give us a call to find out more on 08450 570 321 or email office@connectedshopping.com.
