Golf simulators? Indoor putt-putt course? Laser tag? Whatever you're looking for, Putt & Play Golf Center has it. Located on West Columbus Avenue in downtown Bellefontaine, owners Sam & Eric Watkins are proud to offer a variety of fun indoor activities for community members to enjoy year-round.
What began in 2017 with two golf simulators and a simple putt-putt course quickly grew to include much more. Despite their challenging miniature golf course and golf simulators loaded with over 85 courses from all over the world, their patrons wanted more. "Many customers would ask, 'Do you have anything else to do?'" shared Sam Watkins. In the fall of 2018, two virtual reality stations were added with 40 experiences for customers to enjoy, including virtual escape rooms or flight simulation. They upgraded their putt-putt course and added "glow putt" on select days with the help of glow-in-the-dark paint and black lights.
After all their upgrades, customers were still looking for more to do, so the lower floor was converted into a 1,400 square foot laser tag arena known as WarZone 209 starting in 2019. The newer, more robust layout and laser tag system compares to a real-life Call of Duty-style experience; this new system opened earlier this year.
