Jack Banning's Putt-Pins, "the popular new indoor Golf-Bowling game," combines two popular sports of the 1950s. Players set up the small wooden bowling pins on a felt putting mat using the pin setting rack and knock down the pins using their own putter and golf ball. A scorekeeping pad with rules is provided with the game.
