     History
    In the beginning this was a Putt Putt miniature golf course. Then it closed down. Then it became something like Putters Golf. Then, it closed down too. Then there was another owner take over or attempt too reopen it but in the end it was the Fun Station Golf and Games. Its closed now too.

    Even having a Pizza Inn franchise and hosting some national video game LAN tournaments couldnt keep the doors open. Home video game consoles pretty much spelled the end for token and quarter sucking video arcades like this.

    The worn out putters are still lined up in their racks frozen in time. The grass has grown up around the tacky animal sculptures that always seemed a little out of place. Some of the course still looks playable though.

    At the time I visited it appeared it was being cleaned out or remodeled inside.

    UPDATE: In or around 2011-2012 this place was purchased or leased by a crooked body shop in Garland Texas. I wont even speculate on what they planned to do with this location.


    UPDATE JUNE 2018: GONE satellite views indicate its been demolished
