Fort Putt Mini Golf (later Friendly Putt Putt Mini Golf) [gone]
Rome, NY
These photos of the Fort Putt Mini Golf are from around 2001. The course features local themes such as the copper loop-de-loop homage to the local Paul Revere Company, simulated canals (the Erie Canal passes through Rome), and local Native American references. The course later became part of Hot Diggity Dog, a hot dog stand. The hot dog stand was closed by 2013 and the mini golf appeared to be abandoned. In 2015, it reopened as Friendly Putt Putt Mini Golf. By 2021, the course was gone.

North Pole Putt N Play [gone]
Wilmington, NY
The North Pole Putt N Play was a well-maintained oldie. Many of the obstacles were animated. It was still there in 2014 but gone by 2023.

Birch Tree Falls Mini Golf [gone]
Gloversville, NY
Birch Tree Falls Mini Golf had another nice old course with expansive greens and classic obstacles. The tiger statue came from an Esso gas station. These photos are from 2007 and 2010. The course was still there in 2014. By 2015, it was a vacant lot.

Island Green Golf Center [gone]
Selden, NY
Island Green Golf was spotless and it had great landscaping and wonderful obstacles. The figures included tributes to the nearby Long Island Big Duck and the Brooklyn Bridge. The holes also had "pins" (thin metal poles with flags identifying where the hole is just like regular golf). From the pristine condition of the course and its sloped landscape, I suspect it was built more recently. However, the course was classic in spirit and its use of theme figures and its token loop-de-loop. These photos are from around 2001. The course closed in 2011 and was torn down to build condos.

Nutty Putty
Old Forge, NY
Nutty Putty was founded by Meyer and Ira Cohen and opened in 1960. The small, shaded course has lots of nicely maintained obstacles. [map]
