Swinging London: Office minigolf

Office minigolf is one of the hottest office party hires in London. One of our recent customers, communications agency Hive Health Group, have been kind enough to send us some photos of their Putterfingers minigolf course in place at their offices in Piccadilly, London.

‘Our event went really well and everyone had a great time playing mini golf in the office,’ said Prateek Shah, Finance Manager. He didn’t mention who was responsible for putting a cow on the course though, but we think it’s an imaginative addition!

Office minigolf hire London

Minigolf is the perfect entertainment to hire for an office party because it brings people together who might not normally interact, and colleages learn something about each other as it soon becomes clear who is the most competitive – if it wasn’t already!

Staff can improvise by adding extra items like pot plants to the courses – or raising a corner of a hole, as seen in the photo above, to make it even more challenging. Office minigolf allows staff to relax and socialise whilst remaining competitive.

Harking back to 2015 and an office minigolf hire to Next15, another communications agency, these were some comments we received from them:

‘Putterfingers have been a great company to do business with, everything was very quick and simple all the communication was very clear and if I had any questions I knew I would get a quick response back.

This is the 2nd time we have used Putterfingers and it won’t be the last. The mini golf idea is fantastic and it really creates a wonderful atmosphere around the office.’

Putterfingers have also supplied mingolf courses to Facebook, Criteo and other leading firms.

Zurich Offices get golfing for the Open

Zurich have sponsored the Open for over 10 years now and we were delighted to be asked to produce some bespoke mini golf putting greens for their offices across the country.

The aim of this was to get all involved in golf to join in with their internal Mini Golf Open.

With the brand colour schemes of deep blues, we offered blue and white low bounce balls to the putting greens and customised our obstacle pieces to match their brand colours.

The branding of the tile incorporates the company logo using a unique water jet cutting method, inlaying the brand’s logo and colours into the astro grass.

The portable nature of the putting green gives the team the opportunity to continue using the course in this format at future internal events, exhibition and marketing events.

Each putting green is 3m in length, and will fit comfortably into the back of most domestic vehicles making it very transportable and very flexible in its usage.

With exhibition season closely upon us – how about adding a portable putting green to your stand?

Big Putt Modular Putting Greens get Stimped!

Our new Big Putt Modular Putting Greens are launching soon!

Our friends at the local golf club, recently helped us measure our stimp meter reading and we are happy to  say that we have been stimped at a speed of 13.5.  How’s that for a realistic, true, clean putt?

So what exactly is a stimp meter reading?

The stimp meter was designed by golfer, Edward Stimpson in 1935 and redesigned in aluminium in 1976 by Frank Thomas.  The stimp meter is commonly used by greenkeepers and is a device used to measure the speed of a golf course putting green by applying a known force to a golf ball and measuring the distance traveled in feet.  The distance travelled by the ball in feet is the ‘speed’ of the putting green.  The stimp meter can also be called a green speed reader.

One of our local Pro Golfers Lawrence Dodd , kindly made a stimp meter for us and set about the challenge of finding out our stimp meter reading.

So at 13.5 how do we measure up?

On our 6m Big Putt green the ball reached 13.5ft using the stimp meter device.

An average putting green is around 10 on the stimp meter – so this is a fast green by comparison.  In fact we dug out this article on How to putt on super fast greens like the Pros
