Putting & Kubb
The Green is located along 6th Avenue in the southwest corner of the park. Featuring Putting and Kubb, the Green opened in May 2013 and brings Bryant Park's games tally to over 30. Both games are staffed daily and have free equipment available for public use. Come with a friend, or come alone - we're happy to connect you with partners for a competitive match.
Our five-hole green is open to all - accessible for beginners and kids, and perfect for seasoned players looking to hone their game. Stop by to practice your technique, perfect your distance and speed, or simply putt for fun. The putting green has varying gradients, so approach your putt from different angles for countless challenges. Golf balls and clubs are provided free of charge. You are also welcome to bring your own equipment.
Mini Golf Socials
Lanes and hazards create a challenging and fun mini golf course on the first Tuesday of the month from April through October.
Want to compete for prizes and the pride of calling yourself the champion of Bryant Park's Putting Green? Bryant Park Putting Championships return on Thursdays in August. Participate in one of three weekly lunchtime tournaments for the chance to earn a spot in the Championship Round on August 24.
Experts from Randy Taylor Golf offer workshops to perfect your putting game. Putters will be provided, but bring your own if you prefer. Each workshop date will feature two sessions; register for the session you'd like to attend here. Instruction is not sequential, so please register for one session.
Hailing from Scandinavia, Kubb has found a home in New York at the Green at Bryant Park. Similar to lawn bowling, the object of Kubb is to knock over your opponent's blocks with wooden pins. The first person to accurately hit all five of their opponent’s Kubbs and then take out the King wins the game. Think it sounds easy? Come to the Green, where our games host can teach to play, and partner you up for friendly games. Read more about kubb on the Bryant Park Blog.
Kubb takes over the lawn during our single-elimination, bracket-style tournaments. Pre-register at bryantpark.org/calendar with a group of up to 6 players; registration opens one month before the tournament. On-site registration starts at 5:30pm if space allows.
Select Wednesdays at 6pm; May 25, July 27, September 28.
Host a Party at The Green
For your next corporate outing, take your employees outside for some fresh air and an invigorating game of Kubb or a spin around the Putting Green. Play for fun - we can offer instruction at each area, or play to win. Set up an intra-office Kubb tournament (also known as Viking Chess) or mini golf tournament. Your play at The Green can be as casual or as structured as you'd like. Whatever way you choose to play, a party at The Green is a great way to build team spirit.
If you'd like refreshments, we're happy to connect you to our excellent onsite food kiosks. Afterward, celebrate with drinks and no-wait entry at Manhattan's hottest after-work scenes, Bryant Park Cafe and Southwest Porch.
