Auctioneer sells putt-putt course assets
If you ever wanted to take something home from a putt-putt course, now’s your chance.
Putter’s Family Fun Center in Portage said on its Facebook page this spring that it is "in the process of selling."
“The difficult decision has been made not to open Putter's this season. . . . Thank you to all of our loyal friends out there. Have a safe and fun spring-summer season,” the post says.
Putter’s is now hosting a 226-item online auction through Orbitbid.com tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Preview day is today from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Putter’s Family Fun Center, at 7206 S. Westnedge Ave.
“So many people have been to Putter’s with friends and family over the years, and now they get an opportunity to pick up something from their memories and actually own it,” said Jon Kuiper, VP, Orbitbid.com.
The auction will feature a wide range of items: Putter’s large decorative, composite animals, such as giraffes, a flamingo, a lion, a frog and a hippopotamus fountain; other putt-course and batting cage items; and many arcade and ticket redemption items, such as “Ms. Pac-Man,” “Ice Ball” and Sega’s “The Lost World: Jurassic Park.”
