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.

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!

Now is the time to talk to us about hiring a mini golf course for YOUR Spring or Summer wedding! Call Shelley for a chat on 08450 570321 or email office@connectedshopping.com.

New games packages for event and wedding hire!

A fresh new year brings a fresh new range of products from Putterfingers! We’ve put our heads together over the Christmas break and thought of ways to boost the fun factor even further at events, parties and weddings with a range of traditional garden games, face in hole boards, ping pong and our new popup face in hole art gallery. Our aim is to leave no guest un-entertained.

Giant wooden garden games

garden games, giant wooden games, jenga, four in a row, skittles, noughts and crosses, croquet

 

Set these games up at various spots around your event and let guests amuse themselves. Giant Jenga, Dominoes, Skittles, Noughts & Crosses, Four in a Row and Croquet are all good fun, and because there is a variety, guests can move from one to the other for a quick game or hang around their favourite and get competitive – it’s their choice. Hire the games in addition to a minigolf course for extra fun for everyone.

Face in the hole boards

face in hole boards, aunt sally boards, peep boards, seaside boards, games

We have a big selection of these traditional funny boards. There’s a set specially for weddings, another with a seaside theme, Christmas boards, and seasonal Easter and Halloween boards. We can also make you a bespoke face in the hole board to your specifications if you give us a bit of notice. The boards are best used for taking photos. Guaranteed laughs and some memorable snaps!

Face-in-the-hole portrait gallery

This is an absolute scream. Classic portraits with the faces cut out so guests can pose in them. This picture shows just some of the results you can get. The gallery consists of five boards that can be arranged in a ‘U’ shape. Guests walk round the back and put their faces in the holes. Another great photo opportunity, and a really good laugh.

Here’s the gallery when all the boards are put together:

It can be set up indoors or outdoors.

Ping pong

We supply full-size tables and everything you need: bats, balls and nets. Give your guests a chance to be competitive and have fun practicing their slice shots and smashes. The tables can be set up indoors or outdoors. You can leave the table for free play or organise a tournament. Tables, bats and balls are tournament quality and in top condition so duff shots are the player’s fault, not our equipment’s!
