I made friends with an octopus :P
We arrived a little early to find street parking & then headed towards Urban Putt. I loved their logo & we found out that this mini golf place was funded by Kickstarter, how cool! It took a year to build this whole place from an old mortuary. Yup, just a wee bit creepy is all :P

All the holes were so unique & some were quite the intricate little things. The holes took us through SF, virtual worlds, mazes, underwater, Day of the Dead, music, robots & much more! As Vinh suspected, the course had a steampunk influence & basically affirmed by the owner when we chatted with him. My favorite holes were probably the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), underwater & the virtual world :)
Hole #1 - earthquake?
Hole #2 - skeeball anyone?
Hole #3 - don't hit too hard
Hole #4 - virtual golfing
Hole #5 - windmill
Hole #6 - labyrinth
The hole your ball falls in signals how many strokes you took
Monica & Paul got a hole in one
Hole #7 - underwater
My octo friend sans flash
Hole #8 - Lemme drive the submarine?
Inside the submarine
Is that a ghost orb inside my submarine photo? :P
Hole #9 - Dia de los Muertos
Hole #10 - Drums & percussion sounds
Holes #10 & #11
Hole #11 - Golf land
Hole #12 - Quack!
Hole #13 - Robots & music
Hole #14 - Grand finale
I didn't really hit him, I swear :P
After mini golfing, we headed to the bar & ordered up a Mama's Lil Yella Pils(ner). It was quite refreshing, especially after working hard & having fun mini golfing. Too bad you can't bring your drinks onto the course. That'll certainly make things harder, haha :P
Free beers to taste :)
If you haven't been to Urban Putt, this is certainly a mini golf course you just have to try! It's not your run of the mill Golfland. This is a whole 'nother level of mini golf! Thanks Yelp, Urban Putt & KRAVE for a fun afternoon event :)
