How to Organise a Mini Golf Tournament With Friends

Mini golf tournaments are a great way to get together with friends and have a fun time competing against one another. Whether you’re looking for Manchester activities that are low-key or want to go all out with a highly competitive tournament, here’s what you need to know about organising your own mini-golf event:

Pick a date for your tournament in advance

The first step in organising a mini golf tournament is to pick a date. You’re going to want to make sure that everyone’s available on the day you choose, and that the mini golf course will be open as well. The Putters mini golf experience at The Urban Playground is open seven days a week, so you should be able to find a time that works best for your group. You can check this out online or by calling directly and asking about availability on your preferred day of choice.

Choose your tournament format and other rules

You will need to choose the tournament format and other rules. You can choose how many players will be in each round, which player will be the first to tee off and whether or not you allow mulligans (one-time do-overs).

It’s fun to get a little bit creative with the rules of your tournament, just make sure everyone agrees! For example, the winner of the tournament might get free drinks from the group all night, or if you’re feeling really creative you could make a trophy!

Invite all of your friends and give them time to RSVP

You’ve decided to organise a mini golf tournament with your friends. You need to get the word out, and you want people to respond with enthusiasm!

You’ll need to give your guests plenty of time to RSVP if you want them all to be there on time—and therefore, have a good time. Why? Because it’s hard for people to plan their schedules around an event that might not happen if they don’t know when or where it is happening. If they don’t have time off work available, they can’t make plans in advance; and if there’s no particular reason why they should go (such as being invited by their friend), then maybe they won’t bother going at all.

So make sure everyone knows about your party weeks in advance so that everyone has ample opportunity to confirm their availability.

Arrive early to check in and make sure no one is waiting around for the tournament to begin

One of the most important things to do when you arrive at a Manchester mini golf course is to make sure no one is waiting around for the tournament to begin. This can be done by checking in with staff members and seeing if anyone is waiting around or has registered for the event. If there are people at the course before it begins, this might cause problems later on in the day.


Don’t let the planning process for your mini-golf tournament be too stressful. It’s supposed to be fun, after all! Just make sure you get organised in advance, set a date and invite your friends. When it comes time to play the game itself, everyone will enjoy themselves because they’re in good company at a great place.
