Cocktails and Intricate Courses Make New Mini-Golf an Illinois Hot Spot
When I was a kid miniature golf was played at Putt-Putt where the courses weren't creative, you chose from a red, blue, yellow, green, or orange colored golf ball, and the most exciting part of the round was the 18th hole.
On the 18th if you got a hole-in-one, it means you win a free round, and your ball disappeared forever.
Getting to the Galaga and Donkey Kong machine at the arcade inside of the Putt Putt was more exciting than the actual playing of the mini-golf.
But that will not be the case at this insane new miniature golf course that doesn't just have you putting around a giant clown head on a course of green felt and ponds filled with dirty water and leaves.
This recently opened mini-golf course called Puttery was "designed to be a visceral, intricately detailed experience that transports guests to a wholly unexpected location,' according to their website.
Located in the Fulton Market District on W. Randolph Street in the West Loop, Puttery Chicago doesn't just serve refreshments, they have "curated culinary options and inventive craft cocktails" and have many beautiful bars and lounges to relax and listen to some music after playing a round.
According to their website, a round at Puttery is $21 per person with reservations made online up to 10 days in advance. A round takes 30 to 45 minutes depending on group size.
Puttery in Chicago just opened on November 4 and prime play times book up fast, especially on Friday and Saturday night so CLICK HERE to find out more about reserving a tee-time or if you want to set up a group event.
