This might not look like a putt putt hole (and it is quite hard as well), but you if you take a close look there is a pink ball in the upper left corner. What's on the floor? That would gun casings.

    Smash Putt looks like the most amazing thing to come through Portland since the Urban Iditarod! I would be losing my Keep Portland Weird cred if I didn’t go to this. If you could please help me support KEEPING PORTLAND WEIRD by giving me tickets, I would be most eternally grateful!

    I’d like to go on Sunday, please.

      please please please can I go on Friday night. I love power tools and art and hate golf.

    I want to attend Smash Putt! this Friday, so I can get more bad ass mistresses than that chump Tiger Woods.

  3. Brett Feldman March 30, 2010 at 1:54 pm #

    I thought Smashputt was finished last weekend and was distraught when I thought I couldnt go! Please keep me in mind for tickets for Saturday :-)

    I’d like to attend Smash Putt any night this weekend because it is my duty to show the world what a complete badass I am with a putter and a bottle of Jack.

    As the one time reigning Ten Tiny Tee’s put-put golf Champion (yes, capital C), I have been a legend amongst my peers and follows as one of the top put-put golfers to come out of neighborhood in the last 3 months. Due to my love of this game, my ongoing search for unique and kick ass courses and a hatred for all things “windmill”, I would love to have the opportunity to test my somewhat fading skills against what can only be called the X-games (Extreme, Extreme, Extreme) course of the mini golf world.

    Ok, enough hype. I love put-put. My wife loves put-put. We would love to come play some put put on Friday night. We also like adult beverages. And we don’t smell. Please…and thank you.

    Sweet! I’ve always wanted to play Putt Putt in a crack House. This Sunday night to be exact.

  7. Shelley March 30, 2010 at 2:55 pm #

    I suck ass at golf and it always ends up making me hulk-like angry. So this is a place where I’ll be accepted instead of escorted out. Saturday would be Rad, but I’d go anytime!

  8. McMc March 30, 2010 at 3:25 pm #

    I would really love tickets to this weekend’s Smash Putt because I was born on a mini-golf course, my sister was conceived on a mini-golf course, and now I want to take a first date to a mini-golf course. But not just ANY mini-golf course. Its got to be bad-ass enough for them to call me afterward. Portland, what do you have for me?

  9. Rachael March 30, 2010 at 3:25 pm #

    I’d like to attend sunday 4/4 because my birthday is two days later and I’m almost 40!!! I have some aggression to release!

  10. Kent Moffat March 30, 2010 at 3:42 pm #

    I’d love to go Saturday night. I’m a mini and macro golfer from way back and and even bigger fan of keeping PDX weird and helping make it weirder. :)

  11. Roddy Jasa March 30, 2010 at 4:57 pm #

    I would love tix for next Friday. As of last summer I have been banned from 3 courses here and a dozen in Nebraska!

  12. Jen Lane March 30, 2010 at 5:55 pm #

    I grew up in a miniature golf family. I’m hoping a night of SmashPutt will block out those memories. I’d like to go late on Friday, April 2nd, please.

  13. Joel March 30, 2010 at 6:12 pm #

    I’d like to take the sweetest girl ever on a date. With a lack of disposable income, my options are running out. If I can offer up something as cools as Smash Putt for our date, I’ll finally allow my balls to drop, and ask her out.

    I’d be thrilled with tickets to any night, but the earlier the better, as I’m going to treat this one like the lady she is.

  14. Molly March 31, 2010 at 2:46 pm #

    I would love a pair because I myself have never gone, and I have a friend visiting from the east coast this weekend, so it’d be fun shenanigans all around. It was also be a hilarious Easter activity since we’re both Atheists. I would prefer tickets for Saturday or Sunday night.

  15. Daniel March 31, 2010 at 2:58 pm #

    I would like to go because I want to see this for myself. I’ve got a friend who went last weekend and said it was a blast.

    May I please have tickets for this Sunday evening?

  16. AnDrew March 31, 2010 at 4:17 pm #

    I would love to go to this because it sounds effing awesome! I would consider it to be a source of creative inspiration, which I need since I’m broke and depressed.

    I’m available on all of the days listed. If you need one specific day, Saturday April 17, 6pm – 1:30am is as good as any.

    Thank you for doing this!

  17. Mary April 1, 2010 at 2:25 pm #

    I am going on a triple-date to Smash Putt on Saturday night and I’m super excited, but sad that the poor pagan orphans will not be able to go on a quadruple date with us because they are heathens and god hath smoted them to a life of porridge and no fun on the weekends. Please provide us with an extra set of tickets so that the poor pagan children can enjoy a small slice of heaven before they die soul-less, fun-less and without Smash Putt.

    Thank you.

    Saturday night – 11:30pm, danke schoen.

    • Mama Gaea April 1, 2010 at 2:47 pm #

      Hey, it’s us Pagans who will be doing magickal workings to prevent you smoters from stealing our loot! We may be poor, but we make our own fun!

  18. Berenice April 1, 2010 at 2:49 pm #

    I need to play some smash putt this Friday in order to sharpen my mini-golf skills and then transfer them to my techniques for playing Monkey Ball on the wii. No joke. I’m awful at that game.

  19. Lindsey April 1, 2010 at 4:20 pm #

    I would take a pair of tickets to either Friday or Saturday.

  20. Erika April 1, 2010 at 4:43 pm #

    I would like a pair of tickets because last weekends trip to Smash Putt wasn’t enough! I need to go back and blast that baby in the head with more golf balls!

  21. Jessica April 1, 2010 at 4:44 pm #

    I just learned about Smash Putt last week and after searching for more info about it online I was introduced to “PDX Pipeline”. From here I learned you guys give away free tickets! Winning free tickets to Smash Putt as a result of learning about this bad-ass online event forum would be the icing on the cake. PDX Pipeline is rad either way, but man am I stoked about the prospect of winning free s*it and learning about cool stuff happening in Portland. Plus, I would f-in ace that hole in the picture above because I’m a dead-eye. Just sayin’. I plan to go Friday night and experience the awesomeness for myself.

  22. Sean April 1, 2010 at 4:52 pm #

    I’m trying to impress a girl on our first date and can think of no better way than to take her to Smash Putt and show off my crazy skills. She’s commented on mini-golf already so this would show her I’m attentive. Friday would be ideal but Sat would work too.

  23. Sarah Peterson April 1, 2010 at 5:04 pm #

    i want to see dogs on skates!

    • Sarah Peterson April 1, 2010 at 5:05 pm #

      on friday!

  24. Myla Crowell April 1, 2010 at 5:26 pm #

    I’ve already bought tickets for Sunday 6-8 but would LOVE to win a couple of pairs to bring a more friends with me!!!!!

    Sunday 6-8

  25. Tiffahni April 1, 2010 at 5:32 pm #

    I friggin love putt putt!! Why can’t this be permanent!! I haven’t been yet but I’m sure its amazing! Saturday would be superb!!

  26. Daniella April 1, 2010 at 5:32 pm #

    I haven’t played mini-golf since by 7th birthday, but Saturday’s my night.

  27. Benjamin April 1, 2010 at 5:41 pm #

    This is how putt putt should be played: with some spice and anger!!!!! I always thought it was too boring, and that is why I always got kicked out of the parks for trying to see which cars I could hit in the parking lot. I can go Sunday. Thanks.

  28. Matthew April 1, 2010 at 5:42 pm #

    Nothing to do Saturday. Very unique set up here and would like to see how they put it together.

  29. Tony April 1, 2010 at 5:44 pm #

    I would love tickets for Sunday. This sounds like it could be a fun time while being exposed to some very cool art.

  30. Callie April 1, 2010 at 6:14 pm #

    i want to go to smash putt cause im pretty much the greatest mini golfer in history?

  31. Jeffree April 1, 2010 at 7:17 pm #

    I want to go on Sunday! I love mini golf but find all courses in the region to be LAME. This sounds like a BLAST! ;)

  32. Jason Barton April 1, 2010 at 7:18 pm #

    I would like tickets for Saturday night at 6:30 please. i’ve been at this for the past 3weeks and got nowhere. I heard it was really great!!!

  33. Daniette April 1, 2010 at 8:00 pm #

    I really feel a need to have a date this Sat. Night (around 8:30), and would be sooo appreciative of the evening out!!

    After throwing a major skateboard competition and getting married two weeks ago, I selflessly tossed my much needed.. and prepaid… Mexican honeymoon aside in leu of helping my overly anxious newbee husband off the plane in a full fledged panic attack.

    It has been DAYS since we have left the house, and I figure what better way to subside crazy tension and anxiety than wack a small ball thru a hard to find hole?? –Thanks for the possibility of a great wedding present!

  34. james April 1, 2010 at 8:06 pm #

    My friend and I walked past Smash putt a couple weeks ago and it looked awesome. They let us walk around for free because we only had a few minutes, but I’d LOVE to go back and play. If only there were a way I could win free tickets…………….

  35. gabe April 1, 2010 at 9:27 pm #

    who the hell put a golf course in my apartment?
    well at least I get free tickets for friday right…

  36. David Pizzuti April 1, 2010 at 9:56 pm #

    i can honestly say that i do not know EXACTLY what the smash putt is all about BUT i have rarely been so excited about something. it sounds like a portland-like performance art event, combined with random fun and miniature golf. my girlfriend and i would LOVE to go………on sunday, april 4th!!!! mini golf IS apocalyptic and i am glad someone is finally treating it with its due respect!!!

  37. Nikki McFerren April 2, 2010 at 7:59 am #

  38. John April 2, 2010 at 8:29 am #

    This looks awesome. I’m recently divorced and dating again. My ex-wife took all my money, so free ticket would very much be appreciated!!! I’d like to go Sunday evening (the 4th)


  39. James April 2, 2010 at 9:18 am #

    Safety goggles? Check. Helmet? Check. Putter? Check. Tickets?? Oh no…!

    I’ve been training for this day for years (and I didn’t even know it). Help me make my smashputt dreams a reality!

    Friday night, 7pm, please…!

  40. Meghan April 2, 2010 at 10:24 am #

    I NEED these tickets to style out my Friday night. It’s First Friday and I can think of nothing better then some putt putt, some fancy things to look at and some serious drinks. Bring it.

  41. Charissa April 2, 2010 at 11:08 am #

    For Saturday night, because it’s my birfday bitches! Celebrating with alcohol and golfing debauchery sounds pretty apt.

  42. Justin Kistner April 2, 2010 at 3:01 pm #

    I want some tickets!! :)

  43. Kate April 2, 2010 at 4:50 pm #

    I would like to attend Smash Putt tonight because my best friend and I have been fighting and want to do something tonight that we can bond over, that doesn’t cost any money. We really need this.

    • Julian Chadwick April 2, 2010 at 4:54 pm #


      We ended the drawing at 3PM today. We’ll have more good stuff all month.

  44. shawn April 2, 2010 at 7:54 pm #
