If you did not know by now, there is a temporary miniature golf / art exhibition in on West Burnside. It’s called Smash Putt and it is here for less than a month. It’s a different take on the traditional putt-putt style as there are mazes, buzz saws, golf ball shooting gatling guns and ummm…apparently “roller skating dogs”. Perhaps the best part though, it is adult only and they serve drinks!

As of March 12th, Smash Putt has officially assaulted Portland!Ãƒâ€š An interactive art exhibition that defies the ordinary and has no equal, Smash Putt brings a unique twist on miniature golf to provide hours of vivifying exploration and mildly dangerous mechanized frivolity to the masses.
With ball destruction, centripetal actuators, accelerator pads, ball bouncers, moving walls, roller-skating dogs, and secret passages, no golf ball survives the onslaught of Smash Putt! For four short weeks, this new 13-hole course of deviousness and dastardly delights is open to the public in Portland’s Goose Hollow District.
The holes are comprised of drill presses, catapults, spinning objects, vertical mazes, buzz saws, and high velocity air-powered, golf ball shooting gattling guns. Developed by an all-star assembly of artists sprung from asylums across America, Smash Putt is not to be missed. It is an experience like no other!
Two bars service this all-adult rehabilitation of Miniature Golf. Seriously malicious competition is par for the course. Smash Putt is created by The Department of Culture Collective, an organization containing artists, builders, prop masters, and lighting designers from across the country.
