From what I can see from the historical aerial photos, this place opened by 1999. It was closed in 2015 and demolished sometime after that. A car lot sits on the property as of 2023. The place had a decent miniature golf course and a batting cage. There was also an indoor arcade.
MLive Article on Closing March 2015:
PORTAGE, MI -- Putters Family Fun Center in Portage has decided to close its doors.
A post on the business' Facebook and a sign hanging on the business' front door, at 7206 S. Westnedge Ave., both say:
"Dear Putter's Friends, The difficult decision has been made not to open Putter's this season. We are in the process of selling.Thank you to all of our loyal friends out there.Have a safe and fun spring/summer season!"
The Facebook post went up on Wednesday. The second to the last post said that it closed for the 2014 season in October. The phone for the business is disconnected. The Kalamazoo Gazette has been unable to contact the owners of the business.
The announcement that they were closing came on the same day that Formula K Family Fun Park in Mattawan announced that it also would be closing, after 40 years in business. Formula K was another family amusement center that offered an arcade and go-karts.
