This is an easy way to quickly convert a Pringles can into a portable golf hole in a matter of minutes. This is intended both for those who like to play minigolf but are on a limited budget and those that live a highly mobile web 2.0 lifestyle.

A special thanks goes out to Fungus Amungus who saw us trying to hit golf balls into a sideways Pringles can and suggested that we turn it upright and cut slits in it. When we just kinda shrugged and resumed what we were doing, he picked it up, cut some slits in it and plopped it back down. Sure enough, it worked great!

Step 1: Go get stuff

You will need one of each of the following:

- Pringles can
- Tape measure
- Marker
- Box cutter

This is actually an interesting idea. Do you know of any <a href="http://www.teeitupmarketing.com/golf-course/" rel="nofollow">golf websites</a>? Thanks.
This is awesome! I'm going to make my own to use at my business when I want to play <a href="http://hardrockcasinoabq.com/amenities/golf.aspx" rel="nofollow">golf in Albuquerque</a>! Should be fun, thanks! :)
Does the ball ever fall down in the cracks between the paper strips? It seems to me that after a while they might start to bend or get wimpy, and make it so the ball doesn't get there. If you put some duct tape on it to make it more of a solid cone it would probably eliminate any failures.
You know what this would be awesome for? Cardboard Mini Golf.
Pringle can what lol it made me lol<br>
Sweet! Any instructable on making the robot head?
Where can I get clubs similar to those? Right now I'm using a lacross stick haha
some of us (read almost all of us) cant go to the tower or the headquarters for that matter.
I must take objection to this step. Pringles may appear to be food, but in reality they are premasticated, pressed sawdust with a large heaping of salt. I recommend removing them all from the can and blowing them up somehow.
But they're so EXTREME!
to the EXTREME!!!!!!!!!!
I think they're made of potatoes
I work as a councillor in an adult group home and I peruse Instructables not only for my own projects but to find stuff for the clients that is fun. This is a great idea for our Memorial Day Barbecue.
You sure you're not a 'counsellor'?
Funny I should find you correcting spelling errors in the comment section. ;)
Surprised, much? (:P)
FYI. The most common variation of the word is spelled councelor. "Counsellor" is considered a variant, except in Great Britain, where it's more common to spell it with 2 l's. I hope my counsel is appreciated. Nice addition none the less. I love irony.
You looked that up!! Nerd. Oh wait... so did I. Never mind.
You know we should start some sort of discussion on being a grammarian. Maybe we could write an instructable on that. Go stick that up your Funk and Wagnall's.
Funkin' ay!
Monster to blind man: Irony Good, Pedants bad!
I live in Australia - we speak the English, just like the English. Glad you like irony. I do too. :) P.S. This is a funny thread!
This is what I like to see! Intelligent people who use their grammar skills for good purposes (correcting grammar nazis), not for hounding everyone on the internet who makes a typo! As far as the project, very interesting. Simple enough for anyone to make and enjoy. I like the comment below about adding another can and strips to decrease the voids.
How about a paper plate????
1. I counsel 2. I am also a member of the council who counsel 3. I like fancy British variants Hope that clears up for you. Now, can we just get along?
Oh and by the way, councillor is a word. It means one appointed to a council. Whos to say that Phoghat isn't one.
whos < who's Mwaaaaa haaaaaaa I got your 6 Pkranger88
Look at the context. Duh. 2 mistakes by you - Bam!
I'd make this if my mom would let me buy a pringles can .
*Gasp* Your mom's evil!<br/>
she is satan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! just kidding
= You haven't experienced the wonders of Pringles!?!<br/>I'm so sorry. =<br/>
very cool-I will make this
Working at instructables looks awesome. What else do you guys do there? What's in a normal day? How many questions will I have?
Has anyone done an instructable on how to make the cool robot head?
Try folding it in two places, one at the bottom and one half way down the side to create an inverted cone inside a cone
You could also use something like newspaper and put it around it to give it that dome look. Looks really cool though. By the way those Buffalo Wing flavored Pringles are the bomb (in step 2)
Im a bbbbiiiiiggggg golf fan! I love this idea. Added to favorites and i give it 5 star rating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oddly enough, I was mowing my lawn and found a Pringles can on the side of the side of the road!! I'm gonna go make this right now.
I'm going to do this... it's so cool
Good work. Simple. Effective. Fun. Cheap, if not free. I think I'll bust this out when I finish my next can. I think it would be interesting to cut the side into a helix and see how that would affect the ball. Obviously you would have to adjust your aim a bit.
How about making it into sort of a cave? using one of the smaller cans? just a hole big enough for the ball in the side of the can?
Great idea!
Doing this next time I buy Pringles. +5/5 stars. (added to favorites)
Cool! Nice Idea!
one thing that u could try is taking another pringles cans, cutting the 2nd one the same way as the first and then put one on top of the other and rotate it so that the folded out strips cover up the empty areas in between the first strips so there is a better chance that the ball won't get stuck in between the slits, and have a better chance at getting up the ramp and in the hole.
what if you cut the strips so they ended only like 1/2 inch from the can instead of the inch there? that way the ball would go in easier
