About the event

In it's 15th year, the Putt-A-Round is a miniature golf tournament held in the Great Hall of the River Center.  Over 20 area businesses and organization custom design and build fantastic holes for participants to test their skills, have fun, win prizes and raise dollars for one-to-one mentoring in the Quad Cities.  

Putt-A-Round is held over four days in late January/early February each year.  The tournament offers a number of "tee times" over the lunch hour, happy hour, and evening for groups of co-workers, family and friends to come out and have some fun.  Each shift includes food prepared by area restaurants, a cash bar, DJ, and numerous contests and drawings for cash and donated gift items.  

Over 1,200 people attend Putt-A-Round annually and is considered by many a "must do" winter activity!

Is this a tournament?  Yes and no.  Each foursome has the option of keeping a scorecard that can be turned in at the completion of play.  We list all the companies/organization and team participating each shift and list each teams final score.  We have contests for hole in ones, highest and lowest scores and also a number of different challenges (between teams, departments, businesses, industry, etc).  Long standing challenges include:  Fire/Police, Financial, Media, School, Service Club, and Manufacturing.  If you have an idea for a challenge, we're happy to work with you to make that happen!!
