Mini Golf To Go’s portable mini golf brings all the fun, excitement and camaraderie of mini golf to your event. It’s a fully portable mini golf course, delivered and set up at your event.
No matter the event, Mini Golf To Go offers a unique opportunity for guests to visit, mingle, have fun and connect with one another in a way that very few other attractions can offer.
Colleges – it’s a perfect way to forget about cold weather (or hot weather) by hosting the course indoors and out of the elements. It’s also great because it allows students to spend some time being engaged for 20-30 minutes on their schedule.
Car dealerships – it’s a great attraction to bring families into your dealership. It gives families something to do while they’re getting the car serviced and helps clients develop loyalty and habit in coming back to YOUR dealership. Each hole can even be sponsored by a salesman or a department at the dealership.
High School Lock In’s – it’s an attraction that is gender neutral and that does not require physical stamina or skills. It’s equally appealing to the most non-athletic students as it is to the football jocks and both have the same chance at winning.
Corporate events – we can customize the course and provide tools and supplies for teams to create their own obstacles in a team building exercise. They then play the course in competition both in score and in who designs the most creative, competitive and visually interesting hole.
Elementary Schools – Mini Golf To Go is a great way to have families play together at the school carnival or a wonderful treat for kids during field day or other special event.
Country Clubs – Mini Golf To Go a creative way to engage families during a tournament or as a special treat for member events.
Can we set up the portable mini golf course outdoors?
Yes. Of course. The lawn, the patio, the parking lot. The portable mini golf course is just as fun outside as it in inside.
Do we have to provide someone to man the course?
It depends on the package that you negotiate. Events always include at least one person from Mini Golf To Go there to set up the course and to load it up when the day is over. Whether you want us to man the table where guests pick up balls and clubs or you want to have someone there to do it yourself is up to you and is negotiable when we set up your show.
Once set up, the course is self managing unless there are a lot of young children, then they’ll need help putting things away.
If you combine Mini Golf To Go with other events, such as Fun Fotos To Go, Race Cars To Go or any of our other attractions, we’ll usually set it up and check in on it from time to time. But you don’t have to have someone managing it.
What about delivery and set up?
We always deliver and set up the course. We want to make it look great, plus it needs to be set up properly. Sometimes one or two volunteer from your group may be needed to help with set up for about 20 minutes and again when it’s time to tear down.
Are you insured?
Yes, we are fully insured and can add you as a co-insured for no additional cost as long as it’s requested at least 3 weeks before your event. Otherwise there may be a small fee involved to get it rushed.
How far in advance do we need to schedule our event?
The only real answer is… as soon as you know you want to have our portable mini golf course at your event – that’s when to request a contract. We recommend at least 4-6 weeks in advance. That being said, we can often accommodate requests much closer to the event.
How long is a typical event?
We typically schedule an event for 4 hours minimum. We can set up for as long as you’d like. The longer we’re set up, the less it costs per hour.
What age group is Mini Golf To Go designed for?
Our course is designed for literally ALL AGES. It’s fun and easy enough for little kids to play, and challenging enough for even those who take mini golf seriously to find fun and challenging.
How long does it take to set up and tear down the course?
Set up takes about an hour.
Tear down and load out takes about an hour.
We may need one person to assist with setup and teardown unless otherwise contracted for us to provide an additional person (which is usually the case). Pieces to the course are not too heavy (about 40lbs each), but they’re much easier and safer to handle with a second person to assist. The part we’ll need help with is only about 20-30 minutes, the rest can be handled by our staff member alone.
How long does it take to play a round of Mini Golf To Go?
It takes about 20 minutes + or – for a foursome to play a full round.
How many holes are included?
Our course currently has 9 wonderful holes.
We see giant animals on the course in some of the pics and video, are they included?
Obstacles change from time to time as we’re always seeking ways to improve the look and feel of the portable mini golf course and to streamline the set up time. Inflatable animals are no longer used as they proved to be too fragile and couldn’t take the abuse that they get being set up and traveling daily. We’ve replaced them with other obstacles and still give the course a great look and feel.
We'd like to get sponsors to help offset the cost. How do we do this?
It’s pretty simple. Ask them.
Go in with a plan and explaining exactly what you’re doing and what’s in it for them.
Offer to print their company name and contact information on the scorecards, put signage on a specific hole and so on. Remember, they’re interested in helping themselves get business, not just in helping you bring a mini golf course to your event. So tell them what’s in it for them. We can also custom print hole sponsor signs to put on each hole, complete with their logo and contact info. These signs are 6″ tall x 12″ wide and would go on the hole number and name sign at the start of the hole they sponsor. At the end of the event, these signs would be theirs. The cost to print the signs is $20 each and they are license plate size.
We’ll help you with a full list of ideas when you’ve booked your event.
How much is this going to cost us?
That’s the REALLY BIG question isn’t it.
We have a base fee to bring the course to your event, set it up and then load it back up and bring it back to headquarters.
That fee varies on how long you want the course to be there, whether you’ll have volunteers to help with set up and load out and with manning the table during the event.
Fees are plus travel and lodging when appropriate.
For our college buyers, we participate in coop buying through NACA and APCA and can work better deals if we’re already in your area at the same time you want to bring our Mini Golf course to your event.
We offer discounts if you also use our Fun Fotos To Go, Race Cars To Go or Game Shows To Go at your events, even if it’s not on the same date. The more you book through us, the more you’ll save.
Other than that we work off of standard pricing and don’t start off with inflated pricing just to give you a false discount.
We need about 900 square feet (that’s a 30×30 space) and can expand to about 1200 or compact into slightly less area if needed.
We can adapt to hallways, divided areas, trees etc. The course is designed to be flexible and we can adapt to fit your space.
No electricity is required.
Area should be reasonable level.
If the event is indoors and upstairs a (freight) elevator is needed and it needs to be available that holds 3′ x 6′ dollies as our course rolls in on two very large 3′ x 6′ dollies stacked 4′ tall and they’re very heavy. (Note: if checking elevator size, make sure that a 3×6 sheet will navigate through. These dollies don’t maneuver easily – so they should be able to roll straight in).
We also need to make sure we have a 36″ door or double doors with a removable center so our dollies fit through them.
If no freight elevator or double doors are available we will need assistance with loading and unloading from the nearest doors. Its fast and relatively easy work with a team of 4 plus our guys. Maybe 10-15 minutes during load in and load out.
Knowing what to expect helps us plan properly for your event so we can be 100% sure to start on time.
