In 1966, Putt Putt Golf Courses released an album called “Putt Putt Golf Courses of America presents Gee Gee Shinn and his Band.” The album contains sixteen songs. The album cover has two photographs showing the eight member band in the middle of a Putt Putt Golf course. In one photo, the band is joined by twelve young women with the hair stylings and clothes of the period.

    “In operation since 1924, this 18-hole course is claimed to be the oldest
    operating miniature golf course in the US. There is a link to an old post card
    on this page (http://www.agilitynut.com/minigolf/oh.html) which shows the course from many
    years ago. The inclined hole seen in the current picture next to the Allison
    Family sign can be seen in the vintage post card. The course is landscaped and
    offers a break from the traffic on the street.”
