Jack-Putt was started as a way for an avid mini golfer, Mister Mini Golf, to pursue his dream of owning a mini golf course. Without the necessary capital to own a course, Mister Mini Golf had to think of another way to achieve his dream. Through a lifetime of research by playing at courses all around the country, the idea of a pop-up mini golf skilled putting contest was fleshed out and Jack-Putt was born. This allowed Mister Mini Golf to use his creative designs to make an exciting customizable attraction for events in his community of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Jack-Putt is a pay-to-play mini golf putting challenge that players putt the ball to test their putting skill in hopes to sink a putt to win the “Jack-Putt”, a progressive jackpot cash prize of $50 – $500. While a for-profit business, Jack-Putt understands that community is everything. Therefore Jack-Putt makes donations to charities and organizations from a percentage of the revenue earned at each event.
The name Jack-Putt has 3 significant elements:
1. Play on the words for Jackpot
2. Jack Nicklaus is Mister Mini Golf’s favorite player
3. In honor of Mister Mini Golf’s neighborhood friend Jack Schwartz
