On The Town – Putt-Putt Golf

On The Town - Putt-Putt Golf

It’s a funky little place, open late, where you can
reclaim the best of childhood.

Putt-Putt Entertainment is an entertainment
center with batting cages, 54 holes of miniature
golf, an arcade and snack bar.
The center is open until 11 p.m. Sunday to
Thursday and until 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday,
giving you plenty of time to meander your way
through the various larger than life statues of
zoo animals.
Although there is no TCU discount, there are
daily discounts.
The most notable of these discounts are Three
Dollar Thursday, when a round of golf costs
only $3, and Monday Madness, when unlimited
golf, a small drink and 40 arcade tokens
costs $8.
Located at 7001 Calmont Ave. near the Ridgemar
Mall, Putt-Putt Entertainment is virtually
impossible to get to without a car or cab, which
gives you a great excuse to ask that cute guy
or girl for a ride.
Once arriving at Putt-Putt Entertainment, patrons
walk past a large arcade. The games and
the potential prizes mostly target the elementary
to late middle school age range.
However, at about a quarter per token with discounts
beginning at the $10 range, the cost of
the arcade is decent.

The snack bar selection is normal for an entertainment
center, but at $2 a hotdog, you may
want to bring your own food.
Outside, the miniature golf course is very cute,
with statues of zoo animals and fun colors.
The 54 holes don’t list a par, so those who
enjoy the challenge of trying to sink their ball
in a lower than average number of shots will
instead have to be content with competing
for the lowest score among their friends. Each
hole is also somewhat shorter than an average
miniature golf course, so if you’re looking
to prolong a date, you may want to play
multiple games.

The cost of golfing per individual is $6.95 for
one game, $8.95 for two and $9.95 for three
games.
The batting cages are Putt-Putt Entertainment’s
best asset.
The cost of batting is about $1 per token and
each token is 18 pitches. Discounts start at $5
and pitch speeds range from 35 to 80 mph.
The cages can be rented 48 hours in advance
for $15 per half hour or $25 per hour, which
may be the best option to avoid competing for
time with Little Leaguers.
