Smash Putt: Portland’s Adult Miniature Golf Apocalypse + Win Tickets

If you did not know by now, there is a temporary miniature golf / art exhibition in on West Burnside. It’s called Smash Putt and it is here for less than a month. It’s a different take on the traditional putt-putt style as there are mazes, buzz saws, golf ball shooting gatling guns and ummm…apparently “roller skating dogs”. Perhaps the best part though, it is adult only and they serve drinks!

Miniature Golf Apocalypse

As of March 12th, Smash Putt has officially assaulted Portland!  An interactive art exhibition that defies the ordinary and has no equal, Smash Putt brings a unique twist on miniature golf to provide hours of vivifying exploration and mildly dangerous mechanized frivolity to the masses.

With ball destruction, centripetal actuators, accelerator pads, ball bouncers, moving walls, roller-skating dogs, and secret passages, no golf ball survives the onslaught of Smash Putt! For four short weeks, this new 13-hole course of deviousness and dastardly delights is open to the public in Portland’s Goose Hollow District.

The holes are comprised of drill presses, catapults, spinning objects, vertical mazes, buzz saws, and high velocity air-powered, golf ball shooting gattling guns. Developed by an all-star assembly of artists sprung from asylums across America, Smash Putt is not to be missed. It is an experience like no other!

Two bars service this all-adult rehabilitation of Miniature Golf. Seriously malicious competition is par for the course. Smash Putt is created by The Department of Culture Collective, an organization containing artists, builders, prop masters, and lighting designers from across the country.

    I get confused on how to win tickets for the events you list. I’ve joined the facebook group, and I don’t see any instructions. I know in the past you’ve indicated that you need to get someone to join thru email to win, but I’ve run out of people to steer this way. Sometime I know people leave comments to win. So anyway, I’d love to get a pair of tickets to putt putt if this is the correct way to enter.

    I would love a pair of tickets to this event. Mini-golf was the first date my wife and I went on. Obviously we had a great time and hit it off but we have not been to a mini-golf place since. That was 27 years ago. Now the opportuntiy to revist a mini-golf place, especially one with a adult theme, would be an awesome flashback to the past. Hook us up…….please.

    I would LOVE a pair of tickets for Saturday night, please!

    While not completely sure, I think this sounds like one of the coolest things ever! I do miss miniature golf (east coast transplant) – but these sounds far more destructive. And there’s booze!

    Yay! I love the idea!! I want tickets please!!!

    I’ll join the crowd in saying I’d love a pair of tickets, but wasn’t sure how to get them through the facebook group.

    I’m down for any Friday night at Smashputt!

    I would like to go on Saturday at 6pm if Possible. I tried last week but I failed to mention a time and day. So I was told to try again this week. Thanks,

    I would love to go either night but tonight would be better. So excited to play. We are broke and we really wanted to do this before it was over. Please?
