Smut Putt Heaven

An outstanding amalgamation of surrealism with a hillbilly twist, or what owner Scott Stevens calls "Smut Putt." A giant cactus garden decorated with crutches, mannequins and doll heads on sticks, sculpture, toys large and small, and lots of cactus. Bottle trees and a giant papershell pecan tree loaded with baby dolls and spinning CDs that produce a beautiful mirror ball effect round out this premiere roadside attraction.
