Back in 2016, my daughter and I visited Putterz in Ypsilanti for an afternoon of Miniature Golf after school. They are open each year from spring through fall. They are open for 2023 – but undergoing some changes.
About Putterz Ann Arbor
Putterz offers 3 miniature golf courses (18 holes each), an arcade, and batting cages. The three miniature golf courses are differentiated by color – blue, yellow, and red. We played all three courses and found them to be of comparable difficulty.
The batting cages offer a variety of baseball pitching speeds as well as a softball option. Check out our profile of the Batting Cages.
The address for Putterz is 2675 Washtenaw Ave in Ypsilanti.
Review of Putterz – Miniature Golf in Ann Arbor
When we selected Putterz, we hadn’t realized that Tuesday was an All You Can Play Day. We decided to take advantage of the Play Day option. This give us a chance to check out all 3 mini golf courses.
The courses were relatively uncrowded on a school day, and were able to play all 3 courses in about 75 minutes. It will take longer when the courses are crowded or you have a larger group. You will have to wait at each hole.
Putterz Mini Golf Ann Arbor Courses Review
We found the Putterz golf course to be well-maintained on visits over the years. The moving obstacles were all operating and the greens were in good condition. Holes on the course feature a combination of contours, blocks, and other obstacles. Obstacles include a windmill, alligator, fairy house, etc.
My daughter’s favorite course was probably the yellow course. It is the one closest to Washtenaw Ave. She made a hole in one three times on this course and only lost to me by one stroke.
She struggled more on the other courses. The first course we played was warm up. It also let her re-learn mini-golf since it had been a year since she last went golfing.
By the third course, we were rushing to finish. I think she was wearing out after two courses and a whole day at school.
The biggest surprise that I had on the course was how much wind could affect your putting. There were a few big gusts that came up while my ball was rolling and altered its course. I definitely recommend waiting to visit Putterz when it isn’t too windy (or wet or too hot).
We visited the Putterz Arcade in our 2016 visit. I have heard from several people that it has been removed in 2023. The area is currently under construction. We will update on what is added in this space.
