Port’s Puttputt mania
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.
