Fore! With spring in the airâand with every other fun activity from a Normal American ChildhoodTM having been already co-opted for ironic enjoyment then played outâover the next week WW brings you reviews of Portland-area putt-putt courses. We're also pretty excited about Brewvana's putt-putt event on Saturday.
Cost: $7.25 for 18 holes, or $3.00 for 18 holes during the âhappy hourâ special, 5 â 8 pm on Wednesdays.
Clientele: The business as a whole is mostly targeted towards the 13-and-under crowd, but the mini golf course says otherwise. During my visit, out of 15 people on the course, only one person looked to be under 13.
Biggest challenge: Keeping up the pace on this surprisingly busy courseâon a Wednesday night, there were five groups scattered across the course and we all stacked up at the end. The 10th hole sat atop a 2-foot raised square that was also quite difficult for a mini golf amateur like me, taking me eight strokes until I made it.
Pro tips: I would recommend hitting softer than harderâyou donât want to lose your ball in the fountains or streams that weave their way throughout the course.
