8th Annual Putt N’ Crawl | Community Spirit
JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. -- It’s miniature golf, BUZZ style! The 8th Annual Putt N’ Crawl will be held Saturday, June 9th in Jacksonville Beach. This year the Putt N’ Crawl has expanded to an 18 hole miniature golf course, set up inside restaurants at Jacksonville Beach. 12 of your favorite restaurants and bars are opening their doors to all participants who dare take on the challenge on each charity-built putting green.
Each year, Jacksonville charities build unique putting greens and compete for cash prizes. Last year JT Townsend won first place by designing a miniature replica of the 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass. The Sulzbacher Center came in second place with a putting green that started on the top of the parking deck, went through a bunch of tubes, and ended up outside of Dick's Wings. This year the charities promise to top those designs.
Tickets are currently available online at PuttNCrawl.com for only $25. With promotional codes you can support your local charities by purchasing tickets through them. Tickets will also be available the day of the event at each participating venue. This year the event will help raise money and awareness for many local charities including Metro Kids Connection, Endangered Primate Foundation, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, JT Townsend Foundation, Friday Night Musicale, The Mission House, Guardian Catholic Schools, Ability Housing, Best Buddies, The Child Guidance Center and more.
For the day of the event, participants can purchase tickets and sign in at any of the hole locations. Sign in will begin at 2:00 p.m. and end at 6:00 p.m. at all hole locations. The actual event lasts from 2:00 pm until 9:00 pm with the after party and awards immediately afterwards at Freebird Live with the $5k Putt Challenge and the Band Something Distant as the headliner.
"This year we have partnered with Jacksonville Wealth Builders to give two people and one charity representative the chance to putt to win $5000." said Mike White, Publisher of the Jacksonville BUZZ Magazine. "Each year we try to enhance our tournament by adding new features, locations, sponsors and contests. We wanted to reward people who get hole-in-ones with the chance to be selected as one of the people to putt for the $5000.”
Make sure to dress in your best golf attire because this is one event where style is rewarded, so pull on those argyle socks, plaid shorts, top it off with your sun visor, and come out to the beach for the Putt N’ Crawl. There will be drink specials available to all paying Putt N’ Crawlers with official wristbands. Last year over 2,500 people gathered at Jacksonville Beach to putt the ball and make the crawl; this year will be even better with more advanced and challenging holes. Participating holes are Blue Water Island Grill, Bo's Club, Pier Cantina Sandbar, Sakana Contemporary Pan-Asian, Blue Bar, Mangos, Snappers, The Beach, Lynch's Irish Pub, Campeche Bay Cantina, Freebird Live, and Da Big Kahuna.
