The entire year six class from Austhorpe Primary School in East Leeds was treated to a leavers’ celebration event this week courtesy of The Springs, Leeds, and its popular mini golf and entertainment  attraction, Puttstars.

Thirty students and their teachers enjoyed a fun day putting against each other in teams to compete for the mini golf winners’ title and the illusive ‘hole in one’ challenge, as they took over the Puttstars venue free of charge.

Steven Wroot, Centre Manager for Puttstars Leeds, said:

“Community engagement is very important to us at Puttstars as a highly accessible, local entertainment centre.  We have a passion for bringing family and friends together for affordable fun and healthy competition, giving everyone who visits that feel good factor.

“We were delighted to welcome the children from Austhorpe Primary School for an un-fore-gettable experience as they prepare themselves for high school and hope that they will return over the summer break.”

John Ware, Year Six Class Teacher at Austhorpe Primary School, said,

“Puttstars is an excellent, value-for-money venue in the locality to take your class to if you want to reward them. With different course challenges, along with the chance to buy snacks and refreshments afterwards, it was an brilliant way to finish our school year at Austhorpe.”

Puttstars Leeds is currently running a special ‘Cool School’ promotion at just £3 per student for a game or £5.50 per student to include a game with food and drink provided. Schools can book by visiting the website – Puttstars | The New Home Of Mini Golf in Leeds or send an email to
