Go to Putt Putt
Putt-Putt Fun Center is the name of a chain of family amusement centers and miniature golf courses in the United States, Australia, Indonesia, and Lebanon. Although the official name of the company is Putt-Putt Fun Center, since the company's founding in 1954 Putt-Putt has marketed franchises under the names of Putt-Putt Golf, Putt-Putt Golf and Games, and Putt-Putt Fun Centers.
As the world’s first and only copyrighted and branded miniature golf game, all courses were built to exact standards to create a game enjoyed by children and adults alike. We pioneered the use of high quality outdoor carpet and aluminum bump boards and unique obstacles for a consistent roll and bounce. Our skill-based game gave rise to the Professional Putters Association (PPA) that still exists today and has awarded over $8 million in prize money to some of the best putters in the world. All tournaments are played on Putt-Putt copyrighted courses.
Putt-Putt began franchising in the 1950’s and quickly spread across the country and became a brand synonymous with its mission: A safe, clean, affordable entertainment venue for families within their own communities. As the company grew, other attractions were tested and added to expand the original franchise model of two or three Putt-Putt Golf courses into a complete family entertainment center.
