    I would LOVE to win these tickets! I am still a newbie to PDX and have yet to check this out. It would make the perfect date night for my man and I! We’ve never been to an indoor putt putt place!

    This sounds like so much fun!

  6. Amy March 24, 2014 at 2:27 pm #

    Oh, I forgot to mention why I’d like to go. My boyfriend and I are new to Portland and I’ve been looking for something fun for us to do for a date night/day. Also, his birthday is on April 1 (seriously, no april fools there) and I’d love to be able to take him to this! What a great birthday present that would be.

      Would love to launch, dodge, and scramble all the while getting my Shot Putt on!! While I might not have the balls, I could certainly guide it into the holes!!

  12. Steve March 25, 2014 at 1:00 pm #

    I really need to punish something…SMASH BALLS….I need some relief from teenage boys home all week for Spring Break!! I need this more than I can express….In fact if I don’t win, I may end up turning the inside of my house to my own course!

  13. Joshua Jabbour March 25, 2014 at 5:51 pm #

    Oh man do I know how to smash it! Lemme in, I’ll show them!

    our annual long weekend in Portland (from Seattle) is the most fun one of the year! after drinking copious amounts of craft brews and stuffing our faces at food trucks, this counts as exercise, right? …right?

  20. Cody Lee March 26, 2014 at 12:33 pm #

    I need to work on my putt game, this sounds like the perfect chance to work on it!

  21. Michael Buchino March 26, 2014 at 1:14 pm #

    Smasha smasha smasha!!!

  22. Lynn March 26, 2014 at 5:14 pm #

    Okay, this is right up my alley, I feel my inner Happy Gilmore rising. I am the chosen one. That is all.

  23. Megan March 26, 2014 at 7:12 pm #

    This looks awesome.

  24. Andy March 26, 2014 at 10:13 pm #

  25. sara March 27, 2014 at 11:41 am #

    I want to attack zombies with golf balls!

  26. Ryan G. March 27, 2014 at 2:10 pm #

    Because mini-golf is fun and crazy mini-golf is even better. :)

  27. Sam McCree March 27, 2014 at 2:11 pm #

    I would love to go to smash putt, because i’m a short dude so playing miniature gold makes me feel like tiger woods ;)

  28. Liz March 27, 2014 at 2:15 pm #

    Pick me! Pick me! Pick me! I wanna smash and putt.

  29. Hannah March 27, 2014 at 2:16 pm #

    I want to win because Smash Putt is clearly the best way to put my numerous doomsday/post-apocalyptic/surviving downtown Portland on a Friday night skills to the test. Lets see if I’ve got what it takes to be a Smash Putter! Or is it Smashed Putter…ah well.

  30. Tahni March 27, 2014 at 2:16 pm #

    My friends would love this!

  31. Eric March 27, 2014 at 2:18 pm #

    oh yea!

  32. Jenn March 27, 2014 at 2:19 pm #

    Jenn smash!

  33. Melanie March 27, 2014 at 2:20 pm #

    My friend has had to spend a week chaperoning super bro-y high school boys, and I can’t think of a better way for him to unwind than sleeping all day Saturday and playing some smash putt on Sunday. Please!

  34. Roxy March 27, 2014 at 2:22 pm #

    I’ll tell you one thing: My boyfriend and I are good at two things: Putt-putt and drinking. Is that too many colons for one entry? But really, how many colons is too many, nowadays?

  35. Tammy March 27, 2014 at 2:22 pm #

    Yes, this would be great fun!! ;-)

  36. Elly Cohen March 27, 2014 at 2:24 pm #

    I have had such a stressful week–smash putt sounds like a great way to relieve some tension!

  37. Paul Laak March 27, 2014 at 2:26 pm #

    Because I love to play around with my putter!

  38. Dom March 27, 2014 at 2:30 pm #

    I’d love to go! Glad it got extended!! :D

  39. J.Daly March 27, 2014 at 2:31 pm #

    “He’s got quite a challenge ahead,” Niles.

    “That’s right,” Ian. “He’s consumed quite a bit of cocktail, and obstacles aside, double vision and hiccups may hinder his ability at a smooth go at the hole. Not to mention, his caddie seems to withdrawn her support and is alseep in the corner.”

    “Indeed, this is where true drunkards shine. Let’s see how he plays it.”

  40. Tiger Woods March 27, 2014 at 2:36 pm #


    Hey, Tiger Woods here, professional golfer/ladies man. Sure I could afford to pay the entrance fee, and yes, I may offend every female on site, but I believe that I’m the perfect candidate for these tickets because..because of…did I already tell you I was Tiger Woods?

  41. Megan March 27, 2014 at 2:42 pm #

    Tee Time

  42. Christopher March 27, 2014 at 2:51 pm #

    I would love to win b/c I’m coming back to Portland my home after two months away and I CANNOT WAIT TO GET BACK AND HAVE FUN IN THE CITY!!!! Aaaahhhhhh!!!

  43. Dick March 27, 2014 at 3:11 pm #

    Because the double entendre’s get soooo much better with a guy named Dick in the room!

  44. Tina March 27, 2014 at 3:14 pm #

    My friends are all going and I can’t make it! Would be a good consolation prize to get to go another day :)

  45. Ashley March 27, 2014 at 3:20 pm #

    Mini golf is awesome! I want to win!

  46. Justin March 27, 2014 at 3:23 pm #

    I Just turned 21 and I haven’t gotten to experience a lot of Portland’s 21 and over events and this sounds like something I need to do before it’s gone so pleeease pick me!!!

  51. Trevor Schofield March 27, 2014 at 4:05 pm #

    Coming down from Vancouver, BC for the weekend and would love to putt!

  52. Nicole March 27, 2014 at 4:18 pm #

    Because I’ve got no balls of my own to stroke.

  53. Nadine March 27, 2014 at 4:34 pm #

    Ever since moving to Portland in 2011, my hub has been wanting me to go mini-golfing. It’s never happened. This would be the ULTIMATE surprise – for ME to present HIM with tickets for not only mini-golf, but MEGA MINIATURE GOLF – SMASH PUTT! He would so love this (and me) for taking his request to the ultimate experience. Please pick me!

  54. Kate March 27, 2014 at 4:58 pm #

    I would love to win & take my boyfriend. Think it would be a sweet date and be in the rose city! Plus to see his face when I kick his ass! Priceless.

  55. jim March 27, 2014 at 5:44 pm #

    I want to smash my putt putt

  56. Stuart Kemp March 27, 2014 at 6:15 pm #

  60. Bryan March 27, 2014 at 9:50 pm #

    My wife and I have been looking to do something really cool for a while for a date night. It’s hard to break away from the norm though and do something that isn’t dinner and a movie. This is the kind of thing that will help us shatter the typical married couple mold and do something really fun and memorable.

  61. Lynn Sargent March 28, 2014 at 12:08 am #

    I’ve never been to Smash Putt and it looks like fun. I do like miniature golf and haven’t played in a long while.

  62. peter mclean March 28, 2014 at 9:00 am #

    My sister makes $500 a week playing SMASH PUTT. Let me get in on this.

  63. Aaron March 28, 2014 at 9:22 am #

    drunken balls!

  64. Mort March 28, 2014 at 9:41 am #

    I missed it last time it was in town–I’d love to go!

  65. kelly March 28, 2014 at 10:42 am #

    Too much on my mind.. Need to hit some balls to let out agression

  66. Julie March 28, 2014 at 10:44 am #

    I love mini golf!! Would like to check this place out…..

  67. Karon Lewis March 28, 2014 at 11:44 am #

    I heard a lot of good things about smash putt. I wanna go. Let’s see what needs to be smashed. Golf and breaking stuff is not ideal together, but who doesn’t like breaking a rule or two from time to time. Pick me to go.

  68. Adam March 28, 2014 at 12:29 pm #

    Man I wanna see smashputt in action, lemme win!

  69. Christine March 28, 2014 at 12:52 pm #
