Pee Wee Golf
Guerneville, CA
Pee Wee Golf was created by Bill Koplin in 1948. His brother, Lee Koplin, managed the business from 1953-1955 and then went on to build the Magic Carpet Golf course in Tucson, AZ. From 1957-1959, he built courses in Florida and Biloxi, MS. During this time, Bill and his son Bill Jr. continued to build Magic Carpet Golf courses in California.

Pee Wee Golf features 36 holes. Due to frequent flooding from the nearby Russian River, the figures are frequently repainted. Some of the figures have been replaced over the years. For more, see this website. [map]

Putt-Putt Fun Center
Modesto, CA
This Putt-Putt Fun Center in Modesto has moved a couple of times. It originally opened in 1960 and then moved to a new location in 1968. In 1989, Funworks opened next door. In 1995, the Putt-Putt moved with Funworks to its current location. There are three courses. I believe this is the only surviving Putt-Putt in California. [map]
