    I want to swing into some action. Muha

    I need to humiliate my boyfriend at mini golf, help a sister out. He’s visiting from SF this weekend, and victory will be mine.

  27. Nora January 29, 2014 at 7:53 pm #

    My guy thinks he can beat me at putt putt golf. Ain’t no way I’m goin’ down like that! Help me crush his self esteem so I can build it up again later in the night ;)

  28. jimbobber January 29, 2014 at 8:43 pm #

    I just putter around my house every day, so I might as well do it where it’s more fun!

  29. David January 30, 2014 at 8:06 am #

    So many amazing comments, I don’t think I can top any of them… a simple comment works and that much more suits me to a tee.

    Golf is a lot like taxes – you drive hard to get to the green and end up in the hole..Its a recession and Im poor. I need tickets!!

  50. JenG January 30, 2014 at 4:30 pm #

    I feel the need, the need for smashing small golf balls with a small club.

  51. Rob January 30, 2014 at 4:34 pm #

    I gotta putt

  52. erica January 30, 2014 at 4:39 pm #

  55. Mark January 30, 2014 at 5:44 pm #

    There are so many reasons I’d like to take my sweetie to this. Figures she busts my balls so it’s time for me to get back at her and smash her’s. HEE HEE HEE! I could get my Tiger on while she fiddles with my putter, you know, keeping it straight and all. Add a little alcohol, some friendly competition and who knows, maybe I’ll be able to get a hole in one that night. Thanks for considering us for this

  56. Jim January 30, 2014 at 5:46 pm #

    Sounds awesome!

  57. Greg January 30, 2014 at 5:54 pm #

  63. Brittany January 30, 2014 at 10:04 pm #

    I’m speechless, really. I have to see this.

  64. mary b January 30, 2014 at 10:40 pm #

    My supervisor just told me that she wanted to go… help me impress her with some tix!??!!

  65. Dustin Stevenson January 30, 2014 at 11:43 pm #

    Dudes. I don’t mean to sob-story at you, but my partner, who lives in LA, has been mugged at gunpoint and had her car break down, both in the last week, all while having just started a new job. If that’s not a definition of week from hell, I don’t know what is. She’s flying up to Portland for some rehab right now, and this event would really make the weekend cool. Thanks!

  66. Parag January 31, 2014 at 1:39 am #


  67. Lara January 31, 2014 at 8:37 am #
