New mini-golf facility opens in Stevens Point


The Mirror reporter

Ever since Rainbow Falls closed, the Stevens Point area has been lacking family-friendly attractions for tourists and citizens. However, on Oct. 21, Putt-n-Play mini-golf will change all that.

Putt-n-Play owners Will and Aloha Seitz have been working on opening the business ever since the building, located at 701 Second Street North, formerly Bernard’s Country Inn, became available. They wanted to build the indoor mini-golf course to give the community something it did not have before.

Putt-n-Play will be open every Wednesday through Sunday after its grand opening. It will cost anywhere from $5.50 to $6.50, depending on your age. Children under the age of 3 are allowed in free of charge. Discounts may also be offered to police officers, clergymen, fire fighters, and members of the military, although those people must show proof at the door in order to receive a discount.

“The prices don’t seem too bad,” said Stevens Point citizen Tom Woyak. “It seems like it will be a good place to bring my kids.”

Along with mini-golf, Putt-n-Play will also offer an arcade and concession food. They will also have a party room which they will rent out for birthday parties.

Putt-n-Play will also have a 6-week long mini-golf league. Registration will cost $42 per person. The winner of the league will get a pizza party, a free game of mini-golf, and a team picture on the Birchwood Bear Bragging Board, among other prizes.

“I’m very excited to have Putt-n-Play in our town,” stated junior Julio Constante, Jr. “I’m a big mini-golf fan, so having to travel to another city with my family was always just a big hassle.”

Putt-n-Play’s grand opening will take place at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 21. The first 50 adults will receive a free game of golf and kids get to pick out of Chippy Chipmunk’s Coupon Basket.
