Originally based on a pub crawl, the story of the three little pigs told of friends visiting bars made of straw, sticks, and bricks while avoiding the wrath of the big, bad wolf, otherwise known as the sunrise. Partake in an age-old tradition with today's Groupon: for $25, you get admission for two to the mini-golf-themed Putt N' Crawl bar crawl in Jacksonville Beach (up to a $50 value). The crawl kicks off Saturday, June 11 at 2 p.m. at Lynch's Irish Pub, Freebird Live, and Dick's Wings & Grill.
Mini golfers putt their way through 14 bars and restaurants spread along the beach during the seventh annual Putt N' Crawl. Adorned with a wristband and mug, gleeful swingers and their caddy entourages stroll from bar to bar where they're greeted with challenging mini-golf holes and $2 drink specials. Each bar has one or two custom-built putt-putts and equips traveling golfers with a putter, golf ball, and plaid jumpsuit. Scorecard in hand, participants tally up their strokes while attempting to ace courses in a whirl of beachside establishments such as Fionn MacCool's, Club O, and Jamrock. As participants head to the after party at Bo's Coral Reef at 9 p.m., officials begin to tally up scores, placing the winners' names atop a digital podium hosted online. Before setting out on your golfing journey, please check out all of the event's rules here.
Pairing golf with goodwill, a portion of the proceeds benefit local nonprofits, including the Jacksonville Children's Chorus, the Jacksonville Humane Society, and the American Lung Association in Florida.
