Try Portable Crazy Golf for your Summer Event

It has been perfect weather for our portable crazy golf hire for fetes, fundraising activities and corporate fun days. We have been enjoying the sunshine – have you?

Our portable crazy golf course have been used at a manner of school events and fun activities over recent weeks as a great way to bring the family together.  Also who doesn’t love crazy golf?

With the fundraising season in full swing (excuse the pun!) we have been busy co-ordinating with local businesses for portable mini golf in both their workplaces and for their social activities.

We supported St Nicholas Hospice at the Bury St Edmunds Hidden Gardens on Father’s Day with a small 4 hole course in the garden of Ounce House, a charming Bed and Breakfast in the town.  Although a blustery day, the number of visitors to the annual event were at an all time high at 2,500 as 37 gardens were opened to the public.

One of the organisers had a few kind words to say about our portable crazy golf course:

“Again thanks so much for taking part, pitching up on a Sunday and being so kind and helpful. Your support for the hospice is very much appreciated!”

We also had a great time recently at a school fete with our Seaside PicturePutt face in the hole photo boards.  They were used as an alternative to a photo booth and the children got to go away with a momento seaside postcard of their shots – a great idea don’t you think?

With lots more good weather to come (so I am told?), do keep us in mind if you are running an event and you think portable crazy golf or our face in the hole boards may complement your seaside theme.

We hold several courses in stock so availability is not usually a problem.

Happy event planning!

 

Sheffield Hallam Mini Golf for Get Active Week 2014

We may have been a bit quiet on the blog in the last week but we thought we would share some mini golf pictures of a recent activity at Sheffield Hallam University.

We were contacted back in 2013 by Josh Saydraouten who is the Sports Officer at Hallam Union.  Josh is fortunate enough to be in Sochi at the Winter Olympics doing some reporting – lucky fella!

Hallam Union planned a Get Active Week during 17th-23rd February 2014 to encourage students to try something new, have fun and take a step towards a more active lifestyle, whatever level of fitness.  And yes Mini Golf is understood to improve your fitness levels, even if just a gentle 9 hole round!

A range of fun, free activities were provided each day – all the students had to do was turn up and play.  These activities ranged from ice skating, table tennis, wall climbing, glow in the dark badminton, and of course mini golf.

Here are some of the best mini golf pictures from the two days:

Mini Golf at Hallam Union - is that a pub in the background?!

The life of a student!  The pub is the background would have come in handy for another type of round!  Nonetheless the feedback has been great and complemented the activities put on during the week.

Get Active Week and Healthy Week are common events in Universities.  As annual events the aim is to deliver the wellbeing support services on offer by the University staff.  It is also an opportunity to raise wellbeing awareness  to support healthy lifestyles for students.

If you have a sport focussed event coming up where mini golf could become part of your event activities, please do get in touch.

School Summer fetes are perfect for 9 holes of golf

We have had a busy spell of school fetes and fayres and what  fabulous weather we have been able to enjoy in the last few weeks – perfect weather for 9 holes of golf!

We used a classroom at a busy summer fete at a school in Cambridgeshire to build our 9 holes of golf and in 35 m2 space it was a transformation!  The children of Year 5 couldn’t believe what we had achieved in a compact space, and crazy golf proved a popular event during the afternoon.

Here are the before and after shots of the classroom:

Here are a few kind words from Catherine Berry, FOES Fete Organiser:

“We hired 9 hole of golf for our school summer fete, which provided something very different for us and was something we had not done before and was suitable for all ages across the school (Ages 4-11).
A huge thank you to Shelley! With inclement weather prior to setting up, the mini golf course had to go into one of the classrooms instead of being out on the playground.  Due to her “can do” attitude she made all 9 holes fit perfectly and the course was thoroughly enjoyed by the children.
It was so popular the Headteacher has already been in touch to book a mini golf course for the children’s special Golden Time Day at the end of the term.”
Here are a few shots of  the gunking of the Headteacher at the end of the fete! Well done Mr Quigley for being such a good sport!

We look forward to helping Mr Quigley and the team in the last week of school.
If you have a charity event we can offer mini golf hire with – do let us know!
