Miniature versions often present significant advantages—take the TV version of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, the running time of which perfectly matches the average time between sour-gummy-worm cravings. Shrink your golf game down to size with today's Groupon: for $16, you get two 18-hole rounds of putt-putt, two hot dogs, two soft drinks, and 50 arcade tokens at Putt-Putt Golf & Games (a $38 value). Groupon grabbers can split this deal between two people or buy multiples; this offer is valid at the Fort Worth, South Arlington, and Hurst locations.
For centuries, putt-putt was reserved for traditionalists entrenched in a culture of driving luxury cars for show and thwarting windmill villains with expertly putted golf balls. Now available to the public, putt-putt brings together players of all ages and skill levels. After an afternoon of reality-based competition, double-bogeyed losers can bounce back with a game of well-executed joystickery in the arcade or opt to settle bragging rights over hot dogs by seeing who can get the most mustard stains on their eyebrows.
Each Putt-Putt Golf & Games features multiple mini-golf courses and a bounty of arcade games that test the limits of concentration, confidence, and non-Euclidean geometry. Share such skills with a young niece or go head to head with an experienced adversary and use the final scores to evaluate whether your competitor makes a proper life partner or an obvious sworn enemy.

- A great place to have a birthday party or to take the kids on a hot summer afternoon to play video games and stay cool. The prices are great and throughout the summer they have great specials. – Debra D., Insider Pages
Putt-Putt Fun Center
