Minigolf magic for corporate fun days

Minigolf for corporate fun days
A recent hire at the offices of Orms Designers & Architects. Being designers and architects, they created their own obstacles!

Experience has shown us that mini golf is always a hit at corporate fun days. It brings people together for networking and team building and can boost morale and productivity. Our mini golf hire courses are modular, which means they can be assembled to fit virtually any space, indoors or outdoors. The equipment is designed to fit into the footprint of a standard lift shaft, so that no matter which floor the event happens on in multi-storey buildings, getting the equipment up and down between floors is as simple as possible.

Minigolf hire is a sure fire success at team building events, annual parties, open days, staff fun days and even training days. It can also be used by management to observe employees in their natural habitat. A Morrisons manager told us:

“We used the mini golf setup with obstacles to set our managers the challenge of finding the shortest solution to get the ball in the hole, thus using the golf as an analogy to overcome obstacles in the workflow processes.”

It has also been shown to help interviewees relax on the recruitment treadmill and show who they really are. As one entrepreneur said:

““Within half an hour of entering the room, interviewees are more relaxed. What they don’t realise is that over a game of mini-golf, they’re giving off who they are as people – we get to know them better than if they were in a stale white room with a desk.” More on that here.

Minigolf can be seen as a microcosm of golf. ‘Big golf’ is famous for being a place where deals are struck and businesspeople have a chance to discover each other’s true characters. With a minigolf hire for a corporate event, you get a similar competitive environment distilled into a smaller area.

Putterfingers mini golf courses can be fully branded for corporate fun days and other business events. Tee-off mats, edge bumpers and scorecards can all carry a firm’s logo and message. This can make employees feel good about their employer as a source of fun, impresses visitors and looks professional.

Some companies chose to hire a minigolf course for a week for their breakout area, just for staff to enjoy. It helps staff to relax and get to know each other better.

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!
