Minigolf is the new black for corporate events

Sales pitch and putt: How minigolf can help you network at corporate events

Have you ever dreamed about strolling round a golf course with a potential business partner and striking an important deal as you hole out at the 9th? Would you like to create the same opportunity to socialise and interact with key players in your industry, but without paying massive golf club fees?

With winter now well upon us, corporate events have moved indoors. What better idea for networking than to create a golfing experience at your Christmas office networking party? Corporate minigolf is a smart way to provide an interactive and fun experience at your Christmas company event.

With a variety of obstacles that don’t get any easier as the drinks flow, minigolf provides just the right kind of light-hearted challenge that can break the ice and bring people together. The courses are made of high-quality astro grass tiles that interlock to make setup a breeze and come in bitesize, funsize and supersize. You can hire a one-hole putting green as a sideshow attraction or a full 9-hole course to make minigolf the main attraction at your event. After your first hire you have the option of buying a course that is fully branded with your company logo and name that can be used for future events and marketing efforts. Putterfingers are happy to custom-make a branded course for your company at your request.

Add an extra touch of festive fun with a christmas-themed photo cutout board. Pretty much anybody can grasp the concept of putting their head through the hole and having a mildly embarrassing photo taken. Yet photo cutout boards remain curiously popular for corporate events. They can be hired or purchased and custom-made with any image and branding. Make your festive networking event a memorable one with minigolf and festive photo cutout boards!


Oh I do like to be beside the seaside

While we are busy putting the final touches to a new website we thought it would be good to share some details of our forthcoming launch of  Picture Putt – putt yourself in the frame!

After countless trips to the seaside and having photos taken in saucy seaside photo boards, we thought it was about time to launch them both together as one!  Which brings me to PicturePutt – putt yourself in the frame for a game of golf!

You can now hire seaside photo boards from our website and we have a collection of 9 photo cut out boards ready for hire at your forthcoming events.

Picture Putt - Put yourself in the frame!

Picture Putt is a unique way to bring golf and picture boards together or even just as a stand alone product, these are bound to create a barrel of laughs at any event.  We already have taken several bookings for weddings and other beach themed activities for this Summer as we took them to local wedding fairs.

Whether it is putting your face in the hole of Fat Mabel or being Punch and Judy at showtime, these photo cut out boards will definitely add some sparkle to your event for young and old.  Many grandparents will remember the ‘tongue in cheek’ humour of of the 1960’s and 1970’s of traditional bathing suits, overweight ladies, deckchair grazing and children enjoying donkey rides.

Now it is time for the revival of the 1970’s seaside trip!  Here’s some footage for the boards at a local Church group who used it as a beach themed holiday club with real sand!  What do you think?

Here’s what they had to say:

Wow what can I say?? What a great resource. These big, bright colourful pictures made our ‘indoor beach’ come alive!! The kids loved them, they were safe and easy to use, very portable. The kids loved having their photos taken behind them and the parents loved the results. Thank you so much Putterfingers, a great great idea!!

Now available for hire at parties, weddings, school activities, corporate events and more.

Watch this space for the wedding range……………coming very soon!
