Challenge Putt: a simple way to break the ice at trade shows
Do you exhibit at trade shows? Want to attract more people to your stand and get them talking to you? A good way to hook them is with a Challenge Putt – a small mini golf hole designed to fit into a typical exhibition booth space. It offers a have-a-go putting exercise to get attendees thinking about what you do and how it relates to them. We’ll design the end board to include your logo and a brand message. When people focus on trying to get a putt through the hole, they are focusing on your brand – and they are far more likely to remember it! Meanwhile, you have a good chance of striking up a conversation with them and telling them more about what you do. It’s a simple and effective way to get more footfall through your trade show stand and interact with more people.
You can add incentives like a cash prize or something people would normally have to pay for, like a consultation, a free service or some of your product. The challenge can be to get the ball through one of the holes in the board or into the putting cup. We can suggest ideas that have worked well in the past if you’re not quite sure what to do with your Challenge Putt hole.
Our minigolf putting surface is modular, so it’s possible to make any size of Challenge Putt. For those with enough space, we can make a Challenge Putt that’s 7 or 8 metres long! Add an obstacle or two and make it a par 2 for a trickier challenge.
Businesses who want to make minigolf a regular fixture at their corporate events or have it as a breakout room perk can buy a fully branded course. From three to nine holes can be branded with your company logo, strapline, or other insignia to enhance the corporate image and brand.

We looked at our corporate client list today and thought: Blimey, look at all the big companies who hire our crazy golf courses!
Things have moved on a lot in the last couple of years, with marketing agencies and events organisers from blue chip companies ringing us to book minigolf hire for their corporate events. We’ve hired to BP, ASDA, Nestlé, the BBC, the RAF, Morgan Stanley, Vimto and other blue chip clients, plus lots of smaller businesses as well.
Oooh, get us, little old Putterfingers, hobnobbing around with all these big names!
But before we get stars in our eyes, let’s come back down to why we started crazy golf hire in the first place. We still love the serve the people who have helped us grow and are still the core of our business: private weddings, birthday parties and charity events.
We believe that minigolf is for the people. It’s a grass roots thing. So while it’s thrilling to drive a course down to London for a bash at Facebook HQ, or design a branded course for Zurich Insurance, we get just as much satisfaction from setting up a course at a wedding or a children’s party.
Putterfingers crazy golf courses are portable and modular – the putting surface is made up from square astro grass tiles that interlock to create a smooth surface. So a course can be built in minutes that fits into practically any space, indoors or outdoors. That makes Putterfingers minigolf courses the most flexible option for minigolf hire – and it has been designed to all fit into a standard lift shaft, so that even if the party is on the tenth floor, the course can get up there!
