Dive into the retro charm of Old Florida at Putter Pub, Carolina Beach’s first 18-hole mini-golf resort with a full bar.

When coming up with the idea for a mini-golf course on Pleasure Island, Ryan and Laura O’Rourke envisioned a place where everyone could gather and indulge in a timeless game of mini-golf while sipping on their favorite beverage. The O’Rourke’s also own the Dive Food and Spirits and were inspired to create another restaurant with this vibrant and funky joint after going to a similar spot while vacationing in Florida.

As guests journey through Putter Pub, they will find themselves transported into an Old Florida atmosphere complete with bright, funky colors and eye-catching neon lights. The building itself is a testament to this aesthetic, with a bold pink exterior and a vibrant green trim. The 4,000 square feet of land is covered with big live oak trees, perfect for shade during the summertime.

The Putter Pub wants to be the hub for community activity, with plans for events, fundraisers, tournaments, leagues, themed nights and birthday parties. There will always be something exciting happening at this neon-colored oasis. It provides both tourists and locals with a refreshing option for entertainment and relaxation, rain or shine.

“It will give tourists and locals something to do outside of going to the beach,” Ryan O’Rourke says. “Something fun to do outside with the kids.”

The mini-golf course is approved by the U.S. Pro Mini Golf Federation and World Mini Golf Federation, ensuring a top-notch experience for all ages and skill levels and eligibility to host competitive leagues and tournaments. Nine holes are successfully ADA accessible; due to space constraints, 18 holes were not doable. Nevertheless, Putter Pub remains a welcoming destination for everyone.

“Anyone from a 3-year-old to a 100-year-old can come here, and they don’t have to be good at mini golf, ” Ryan says. “Everyone can be involved.”

Backed by reputable mini-golf federations and a commitment to accessibility, Putter Pub ensures that everyone can partake in the joy of the game. Additionally, with its pet-friendly policy, family-friendly amenities and diverse entertainment options, Putter Pub promises a memorable experience for every visitor.
