Recently, we went to the Promenade in Sea Point to revisit our childhood, in a game of putt-putt. This little course is still unchanged since we visited it roughly Ten years ago. So with a feeling of nostalgia we briskly paid our R14 per person fee, and set about the course!
We’re ashamed at how lacking our mini golfing skills have become. But the smell of the ocean, the hot sun on our backs, and the laughter from our friends watching us, made the experience just as special as when we were five years old! All we needed was a softserve ice cream and mommy to apply mass amounts of sun screen to our noses!
On a day you feel like doing something different, head down to the “Ice Cold” Putt-Putt course, or any other one near you, and challenge your mates!
Most of the places barely charge R20 (The Putt-Putt on the Promenade even has a R8.50/ person fee for groups of 10 or more!).
