• THE ULTIMATE PUTTATHON

    INDOOR PUTTING COMPETITION ON STEROIDS:

    Last week we had a great opportunity to put on a super cool Golfathon fundraiser for Park United Methodist Church in Valdosta GA. We set up 18 holes of putting, then lit it up with our UV glow blasters. I think it’s one of the best examples of an indoor putting game you can find. We had a blast putting it together and the event went on for two nights.

    INDOOR PUTTING TIPS AND TRICKS

    We’ve learned a lot about putting on puttathons and office golf competitions. The first tip is to create a super creative course. This can be a daytime or night time putting course. It doesn’t matter. The advantage of creating an office golf competition in the evening is that everyone is available so you should get much more participation.

    Practice putting games

    BE CREATIVE: I think the most important part of making an office golf competition cool is making the holes super creative. With our putting track you can make everyone thing from a 45 degree banker to a 360 degree ramp. Just double stack the track and no one will fly the ball off the rails. The more impressive the course the better you will do.

    PLAY FOR MULTIPLE YEAR EVENTS: The cool thing about neon putting track is that people remember the competition. So make sure to take a mountain of pictures the first year so that you have pictures to use for your second year marketing.

    TEAMWORK IS EVERYTHING: So as to make setup and take down a breeze, turn your course set up into ‘course creation competition’. Set up 2-4 person teams to compete in creating the coolest holes. Then photograph them and send them around. The best part about this is that if you get enough set up competitors you can set up 18 holes in no time at all.

    HOW TO MAKE YOUR PUTTATHON AFFORDABLE: The most affordable way to create a puttathon or putting competition is to do it during the day so you don’t need any UV lights. Of course we’d love you to buy our glowgear lighting for your event, but some events may not fit. All you need are the track pieces and 9 holes of putting track will only cost a couple hundred dollars. So then, after the event you can keep the track for next year or auction it off.

    BE COLOR COORDINATED…or NOT: As you can see, our office golf putting track comes in four colors. Some event promoters put events with a different color per hole. This goes with the glow of the lights as well. Other events have mixed things up to give holes a striped vibe. It’s really all about the vibe you want to create. If you are a school, you might want to do the entire course in your school colors of blue and red or yellow and orange.

    CHARITY FUNDRAISING IDEAS: Since you can create a golfathon event, there are several ways to raise money using night golf putting track. You can charge per round or have your students or members raise money per hole. So now a player can get 25 donors who will give them a dollar per hole for 100 holes. This is a great school fundraising idea to try.

    practice putting drills

    HOW TO DESIGN YOUR COURSE: If you are putting on an indoor putting event or fundraiser, don’t just keep it in one room. Use the putting track to travel down hallways and corridors, down stairs or banked around corners. The more people get to travel about and play cool obstacles the better. Remember that you can have putting holes both inside and outside.

    fun putting drills for practicing golf

    TRY THE SIDEWALK: I know it sounds crazy, but it can be fun, especially for serious golfers who are looking for the ultimate putting challenge. Create a hole that might start on carpeting, but then go onto a hard surface like a walkway, sidewalk, tiled floor etc. then go back onto grass or a green. This will make serious golfers have some respect.

    kids games and golf games

    PUTTING COMPETITIONS ON THE PUTTING GREEN: Remember glowgear putting track is not just for office golf or indoor golf competitions. They were originally designed for the practice putting green and competitive fun. So if you are going to put on a night golf event and want some cool games to warm up with, check out our skills competitions as well as setting up a few cosmic putting holes. It’s easy, fast and fun!

  • Office Golf Game Ideas

    Create your own office golf competition

    The cool thing about GlowGear cosmic putting track is that you can create ramps and rails virtually anywhere. Just flip the track and use our nifty bolts to create a half moon rail where the ball won’t jump the track. Then you can put that across the room and now players have a cool lag shot under desks or around corners. The putting track has little nibs on the bottom that allow it to stick to carpet more effectively. (buy Cosmic office golf kit)

    Outside, you just need to use golf tees to adhere to a putting green or any short grass.

    HOW TO PLAY OFFICE GOLF with “office golf in a box” kitputting track for the office

     Office golf and office putting has been around for a long time and it can be played in a million ways.  Now we’ve come up with a whole new kind of putting track to make creating office golf holes super  easy. All you need is a putter, golf ball, designated ‘tee box’ and hole. Your course can run through  your office, home or even outside on an astroturf playing field or rubberized track. With putting  tracks its easy to set up a course nearly anywhere you can chip or putt a golf ball.

     In the past folks would buy green strips of turf or panels you put together. Our thought was why do  any of that if you already have carpeting? If you use our ‘office golf in a box’ kit, all you do is design  your hole and then snap the individual neon pieces together like Lego pieces and you can create  some of the coolest office golf courses known to man.

     The coolest part of our office golf kit is our 45 degree and 90 degree bankers turns that allow you to  create ramps and turns around your office, cubical, cubby or into your boss’s office. the 45 degree  curves make 2ft circles with 4 pieces and the 90’s create 4ft circles with 8 pieces. Creating office golf holes Now you can turn  a simple dog leg par 4 into a potential eagle  opportunity by hitting the banker just right. Now even a lousy putter can make a half  decent score with just a little english off the bankings. Sure, it’s kind of cheating, but it’s  not real golf, after all. It’s just a golf game and a pretty good one at that.

     To be honest Office golf in a box is the perfect ‘golfy’ holiday present for any boss,  superior, pretentious golf snob or serious scratch golfer on your list. With one, two or  three par 4 golf kits you can create multiple holes and challenges. Now your fellow  workers can act like a kid again making numerous course configurations from room to  room that sure beat a simple strip of green astroturf and a hole at the end. All you need  is carpeting and your office kit serves as the course.

      WAYS TO PLAY OFFICE GOLF: We designed our office putting course to appeal to Office golf par 4 holeeveryone from the skateboard adolescent to the want-to-be beginner to the serious golfer who is actually trying to improve their putting game, but you slog long hours at the office.

    OFFICE GOLF FOR KIDS can be full of ramps, banks and curves so you can try for a hole in one while going from room to room. If you are a hipster who wants to simply impress your fellow office mates you can augment your golf course with jumps and banks that everyone will try again and again. But if you are the hardcore golf purist who simply doesn’t want to cheat, you can create cool par 3 – 4 and 5 holes where you have to lag your putts to the perfect location to make your dog legs and if you hit the side, you’ve gone OB, out of bounds and you get a penalty stroke.

    OTHER OFFICE GOLF GAMES: Office bocce.  As we developed our putting track it became clear that a really cool game is to create a long track with two round ends. Players have 4 balls just like bocce. The object of office golf bocce is to try and get closest to the hole. Each player putts and tries to knock the other player out of position. How cool is that? Check out the official bocce rules and just apply them to putting. Now you can take a break during work and have a quick putt off with your office mates. Pretty cool.

    OFFICE PUTTING COMPETITIONS are what our putting tracks were designed for. Now workers can waste hour after hour not only competing against one another over meaningless putting competitions but also spend even more time drawing up, designing and perfecting office golf courses your boss will loath. So stop reading this blog during work hours, and go out and get a 3 hole office putting kit and get back to work. Then when it gets to you, please design your coolest holes and then submit them to our website for weekly and monthly prizes. We will then love you and your boss will love you because if you win, at least someone in your office is making some money.

    NOW LETS GO OFFICE NIGHT GOLF CRAZY: With just a few UV black light Glow blasters, you can now turn your office golf competition into a cosmic night golf extravaganza!!! Our putting tracks are coming in 4 neon fluorescent colors so that you can create a different color hole every putting hole. Pretty cool stuff. Then you just place our blaster stands around your office and you have an awesome cosmic black light putting challenge. Give us a call because if you are having a competition we can rent you the blasters for just a weekend.

    REMEMBER TO DRESS UP TO CREATE A NEON VIBE: When everyone comes to the event in the evening, have them dress up in their best glow clothing.
