Dino Putt

Game Rules

Player must hit a golf ball, past the dinosaur target, into the hole. The player gets three attempts to get a hole in one.

Game Description

This game is made up to two pieces, a front and a back. Both the front and back are built with a base of 48″ x 18″ plywood (3/4″).

The front piece contains the dino target, and has a 2.5″ board on the two sides. The front of the game is edged with a piece of aluminum 3/4″ x 3/4″ angle that is 18″ in length.

The dino target is 17.5″ wide and 9″ high. It is pictured below. The hole on the dino target is 5″ wide. the dino target is attached to the game board with two 4″ piano hinges.

The back piece of the game contains the hole that the player attempts to land the golf ball. Again, this piece has a base of 48″ x 18″ plywood (3/4″) and two different size boards on either side of the piece. The sides have a 2.5″ board (24″) and a 3.5″ board (24″). You can see this in the picture below. The end of the back piece is 6.5″.

The back piece contains the hole, which is 3.5″ in diameter, and placed 5″ from the end of the game.

The picture below shows how this piece is built, with a piece of raised (2.5″) plywood that is 12″ wide x 16″ long. This plywood is 3/4″.

The game is then painted any color you choose, and the target as well.

The pieces are attached with two latches on the inside of the game.

We find that the blue grass carpet seems to look better than the green. This is applied to the bases with carpet tape.

Testimonial

Hey Jack, Thanks so much.

My 7 year old daughter just climbed on my lap and we watched some of your videos together.

There are some games I know I could do in time for my son's birthday.

Love it!
