Southport man proposes to girlfriend at their favourite mini golf course
A heartwarming story reached Putterfingers Towers this week. Louisa Henry and Allan Connell are regular players at The Masters Mini Golf Course in Southport. One day after two years of playing together as a couple, Allan suddenly got down on one knee after the 18th hole and produced a small round golden item from his pocket. Louisa responded in the traditional fashion by going bright red, fanning her face and giggling uncontrollably. Luckily for Allan she then said ‘Yes!’ The happy couple were applauded by onlookers and given two free games. Here’s a photo of the moment of romance captured by the Champion Newspaper!
Minigolf is traditionally a great place to go out for a date. From the 1920s onwards, it has been a fun and friendly activity for couples getting to know each other. It brings out the kid in everyone, breaks the ice and there’s the opportunity for a bit of one-to-one swing guidance if things go well. It doesn’t matter how rubbish you are at it. In fact, it’s best to be as rubbish as possible and have a good laugh as your ball bounces off walls and onto the next hole. Even bad minigolf beats sitting rigidly in a restaurant or staring silently at a movie together!
Minigolf dating is pretty straightforward. Visit your local crazy golf course or hire a garden course from Putterfingers!
If one thing leads to another and the Big Question gets popped, as it did with Louisa and Allan, then you’ll need a theme for the wedding. Now what could that possibly be?
Minigolf-themed weddings are great fun for guests and the happy couple alike, for the same reasons it’s good for dating: it breaks the ice and helps people get to know each other and have a good time. Plus it makes for some good wedding photos!
Putterfingers have provided minigolf at hundreds of weddings up and down the country. Give Shelley a call and find out how to book it at your wedding!
