My 10-year-old daughter and I visited on a daytrip to Old Forge. Nutty Putty is in good shape, and the attendant was friendly. We really enjoyed this simple throwback fun. It's cash only, FYI. $6 per game at this writing.

Definitely the most unique miniature golf course I've ever played! So creative! All holes are hand created and super fun and different! Not your typical putt putt! You have to check out this unique hidden gem-- so fun!

We took our four-year-old and two-year-old to golf around noon. The course is nicely kept, and the motorized action features definitely kept our children's attention. The man attending the course was friendly. We will definitely go back the next time we are in town.

Had a wonderful time with our grandkids playing golf. Nice course. Very busy in the early evening which is a good thing. Course is well maintained and the cost is competitive. We had a very nice time.
