  • About Putt-Putt Fun Centers


Thank you for your interest in becoming a Putt-Putt franchisee. As you probably know, children and adults have been playing Putt-Putt miniature golf for over 50 years and the Putt-Putt brand has some of the highest name recognition of any family entertainment business in the world.

Since 1954, the Putt-Putt® name has been synonymous with family fun and has some of the highest name recognition of any entertainment company in the country. As the leading franchisee of miniature golf courses in the world with over 70 locations, Putt-Putt is a great choice for someone wanting to get into the business.

Products & Services

Although Putt-Putt has continued to test and add new attractions at franchise locations over the years, the classic Putt-Putt miniature golf remains the heart of each location. Some locations are still focused solely on miniature golf, while others have added go-karts, batting cages, game rooms, bumper boats, laser tag, climbing walls and more.

With strong brand recognition, a family-oriented reputation and attractive pricing for our guests, Putt-Putt offers franchisees a great business opportunity. Join us as a Putt-Putt Fun Center franchisee and see how the Putt-Putt name and reputation will bring families, groups and organizations to your Fun Center for an affordable good time.

There are three levels of Putt-Putt Fun Center franchise opportunities:
  • A 36-hole golf only location. This may have an outdoor party/group area and a small snack bar or vending area.
  • A 36-hole golf facility, including a building with a game room, snack bar, and indoor party area.
  • A multi-attraction family entertainment center with multiple golf courses, a game room, party/group areas, food service and other attractions, such as go-karts, batting cages, bumper boats, laser tag and climbing walls.

Training & Support

Training before the doors open for business
The owner-manager and shift supervisors need to spend at least two weeks working at an existing Putt-Putt location that has attractions similar to the ones you will have at your facility. During this time, your staff members will go through the employee training for all attractions and actually work shifts at the location. There is no substitute for this hands-on training. You will be responsible for your travel and personal expenses during this period and you will not be paid by the franchisee where you are training.

Grand opening assistance
Your Putt-Putt consultant will be on-site for the first week that you are open to assist in the continued training of your staff. He will actually work at your site alongside your staff to make sure they are doing things correctly and that they understand the culture of Putt-Putt.

On-going training
Putt-Putt will provide you with training materials and procedures for training new staff and retraining existing staff in new roles.

Marketing Support
Putt-Putt provides franchisees with a complete, online marketing manual that outlines what to do from January 1 to December 31. The manual has a detailed calendar for each month that not only explains when to run what promotions, but provides advance notice on when to order materials, tips on how to use them, and other important information. Putt-Putt also has created every ad, poster, banner and other item you will need to implement the marketing program. All you have to do is follow the detailed instructions. You can also contact your Putt-Putt consultant at any time for help, guidance or answers to questions. You will be responsible for production costs, but the designs are already complete and the digital files you need for printing are ready for use.

Putt-Putt, LLC also looks for input from the franchisees on ideas and recommendations for the development of new promotions and the use of the Marketing Fund dollars. The franchisees elect the majority of the members of the Marketing Advisory Board that oversees the use of the Marketing Fund dollars. This board approves the budget, reviews the recommended creative and provides valuable input to the home office on what is needed by the franchisees.

Are You a Good Fit for Putt-Putt Fun Centers?

Putt-Putt is looking for individuals, families and groups with the basic financial and management requirements, as well as a strong desire, to build and sustain a business in the family entertainment industry.

The management of the facility will require the full attention of the owner/manager to be successful. The owner/manager must also have prior retail management experience.
