Putt-Putt Celebrates its 50th Anniversary

Putt-Putt is now a half-century old. With 100 locations in 26 states, Putt-Putt is the oldest and largest family entertainment franchise in the country. However, the new franchised Putt-Putt Fun Centers™ are a far cry from the original stand-alone miniature golf courses. Today's Putt-Putt Fun Centers™ include, in addition to miniature golf, go-karts, laser tag, kiddie rides, batting cages, rock climbing, game rooms, party rooms, make-your-own stuffed animals and much more.
