Port’s Puttputt ma­nia

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - AN­GELIQUE PAT­TER­SON

PORT Putt Putt has of­fi­cially opened its in­door mini-golf arena just in time for the sum­mer hol­i­day sea­son.

The Leo fam­ily are ex­cited to show off their new busi­ness, es­pe­cially Remy and Piper who have been prac­tis­ing with their fa­ther Sam on the new course.

“The girls are very ex­cited, ev­ery kid they walk past they want to give them a flier and talk to them,” Sam said.

“We are all very ex­cited and happy it’s fi­nally all open, we are just walk­ing around town now with fliers and get­ting things 100 per cent fi­nalised for the Christ­mas weeks.

“It’s ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic the re­sponse we’re get­ting from peo­ple walk­ing around and talk­ing too, it’s a good thing for the town, by the sounds of it.”

The in­door mini-golf course is de­signed for the ages four to 14 and is air-con­di­tioned with a lounge and soft-drink fridge avail­able and the course costs $9 adults, $5 chil­dren, $25 for a fam­ily of four.

“The out­door course is a whole new full process with coun­cil which will take four to six months, the pa­per­work will come in the mid­dle of Jan­uary to start that process,” Sam said.

“The coun­cil was good to work with, their ap­provals all pretty much hit the mark and all the holes have been spon­sored, which was very good sup­port from lo­cal busi­ness.

“The big­gest chal­lenge was the ven­dor’s solic­i­tors, the time in which they took, they didn’t see it as pri­or­ity and took six weeks to do up a sim­ple com­mer­cial lease.”

The com­mer­cial lease will cover the out­door course and with coun­cil co­op­er­a­tion, Port Putt Putt should be fully oper­a­tional by the mid­dle of next year.
