Five musts to check when choosing a Wedding Mini Golf company

wedding

Wedding Mini Golf is a brilliant, interactive and competitive activity that sparks long-lasting memories for you and your guests.

Mini Golf is also very inclusive – everyone from the grandparents to the bridesmaids to the kids can get involved. And you can be sure who managed the best score will be the talk of the wedding!

But before you book a company for your Wedding Mini Golf, there are a few things you should check to make sure they are the right fit for you. After all, you want it to be the best day of your life!

From suitable venues to the quality of equipment, here are five ‘musts’ you should tick off before you book.

1. Can my Wedding venue accommodate Mini Golf?

It might sound obvious, but the first thing to check is the venue and whether they can accommodate Mini Golf at your wedding.

Not all wedding venues have enough space for Mini Golf. Other locations might only offer indoor or outdoor facilities.

A good quality Wedding Mini Golf company should be able to advise you on whether the venue is suitable – they should have the experience of working with multiple venues in the area.

Portable Putts can provide Wedding Mini Golf across Cornwall and Devon. We even have a list of Approved Wedding Venues which include Elfordleigh Hotel, Boringdon Park Golf Club and St Elizabeth’s House. See the full list here.

2. Is the Mini Golf company hire equipment good enough quality for my wedding?

Make sure you’re giving your wedding the ‘Wow!’ factor by choosing a Mini Golf hire company with high-quality equipment.

Our Portable Putts team knows how important it is that the golf course looks great for your guests and that equipment is safe and easy to use – with plenty of advice on hand for first-timers.

Plus we have lots of extra options to give it the extra fun factor – including our ‘St Putts’ Church, ‘Victoria’ Wedding Cake and Windmill obstacles, and multi-coloured ‘low bounce’ balls.

See everything we offer on our Portable Putts Weddings page here.

3. Does the Mini Golf hire company have a good reputation for weddings?

When choosing a mini golf hire company, look for one with experience of weddings or similar functions and events.

Portable Putts has more than 85 five-star reviews on Google – we’re the South West’s favourite wedding mini golf company. You should make sure the company you choose has similarly fabulous feedback.

Our guests absolutely LOVED mini golf at our wedding. It was the perfect addition to our day. Nathan was very efficient throughout the booking process and set up without us even noticing. Everyone needs Portable Puts at their wedding!

If you're looking for fun wedding entertainment book Portable Putts. Everyone enjoyed it from start to finish. Nathan was great. He was on hand all day taking photos and helping all day, and he was great from the first time we met always very accommodating. I would recommend to anyone. A few of our guests have already asked for his details for their own events.

What an addition to our wedding! Nothing was too much trouble for Nathan on our wedding day. The weather was absolutely not on our side but he made the most of it and got set up inside and the guests absolutely loved it. He was on hand to help coach the young'uns and they wouldn't get off the course - they were hooked. I would thoroughly thoroughly recommend portable putts for any event. The course was amazing and Nathan was so friendly and perfect for our wedding. Thank you again - Mr and Mrs Warner x

As wedding venue owners where the couples choose their own suppliers, we couldn't have been happier when Portable Putts was chosen to come here. The staff are super helpful and accommodating and the guests had a fabulous time. We hope to welcome you back to Harefield Barn soon.

10/10 would recommend to anyone. We had Nathan and the crew at our wedding in October 2022 and it was an absolute hit! Our guests had so much fun (as well as the Groom who was overjoyed!). They were friendly, approachable and I cannot recommend them enough. Nathan was lovely throughout and kept us informed through everything! Thank you so much guys, you helped us have an amazing wedding and I wish you all the very best! 😁

Really great wedding entertainment which was unique and well loved by our guests. They were friendly to everyone and very accommodating throughout the day. They were also very responsive to emails, answering queries quickly. Would definitely recommend them for wedding entertainment!

4. Can the Mini Golf be tailored to meet the needs of my wedding?

Your Wedding Mini Golf company should be flexible – it’s your big day after all so make sure they can work to your timings so you’re dealing with the absolute minimum of admin on the day!

Portable Putts has two exclusive wedding packages – the ‘Birdie’ and the ‘Eagle’ that we believe offer great options depending on your plans.

Our most popular Portable Putts package is the Eagle. This ultimate Crazy Golf Wedding Experience gives you the opportunity to entertain your guests throughout the day with no limits.

You’ll even get a dedicated, friendly Portable Putts host to supervise your event, and one-to-one coaching is available to help even your most timid guests.

If you don’t want the full eight hours, our ‘Birdie’ package offers four hours of fun. There’s also the option to upgrade on either package to our Premium Course.

Visit our Portable Putts Weddings page here and choose the perfect package for your special day.

5. Will the Mini Golf company fully attend with my Wedding Mini Golf course?

You’ve got enough to think about on your special day – and setting up and taking down a Wedding Mini Golf course should NOT be one of them!

Make sure your Mini Golf hire company handles the setup and takedown of the course.

Will the Wedding Mini Golf course be attended or unattended? This will determine the overall experience you and your guests will receive. 

At Portable Putts, we always fully attend weddings with our courses. We like to be on-hand to ensure that your guests are having lots of fun – we even pick up those stray putters and balls! Our team will interact with your guests and facilitate the activity so that you and your guests can relax and enjoy the experience.

We are also on-hand to capture those special memories through photos and videos, meaning that your guests aren’t spending the whole day on their phones trying to capture those moments!

What’s more, we’ll send all the photos and videos to you to enjoy after your wedding, so that you can share them with your guests. We’ll capture the laughter and all the highlights – from unexpected hole-in-ones to duff putts that only travel a few inches!

Portable Putts is devoted to creating memorable experiences

Portable Putts attends with courses so that if it needs to be moved, we are on hand to do so.

Unfortunately, we can not control the British weather. But our overall aim is to ensure that you get value for money and a great experience on your special day.

Some mini golf businesses offer a drop-off-and-go service which might suit your needs and budget. You may be persuaded that longer hire time on an unattended basis will offer you more value for money. After all, weddings are very expensive.

But the truth is, all weddings have periods of time where the course will not be used. Portable Putts gives couples two options for duration of hire. From half-day (up to four hours) to full-day (up to eight hours) – with the aim of giving you the best value for money. 

We are not a drop-off-and-go kind of business. We are a business devoted to experiences, giving each and every couple fond memories that will last a lifetime.

And should your important speeches run on longer than expected, we’ll happily stay on. This will ensure that you and your guests get a chance to play mini golf.

If it starts to rain and we can move the course closer to the evening reception, we absolutely will! After all, children will need something to keep them occupied during the wedding breakfast. From our personal experience, they rarely sit still that long! That’s why we’ll make sure the course will be there for them to enjoy and break up the day. Guests with children are likely to be extremely thankful!

Why choose Portable Putts as your Wedding Mini Golf hire company

You need to ask yourself what kind of experience you want to create at your wedding?

Here at Portable Putts, our prices and packages are usually flexible and the quoted price will include delivery and full attendance with the course.

We’ll be there on time and have your course ready for you and your guests.

Our team will also be on hand to take pictures and videos on the day. We’ll even send over the images and footage to view while you’re waiting for your official photographs.
