Puttshack, an upscale, tech-infused mini golf experience, has announced today that it has signed a new lease at 1111 Church Street, the site of the Old Gibson Guitar factory in the heart of The Gulch, Nashville’s premier urban neighborhood between Music Row and Downtown. The location is expected to open in the second half of 2023.

Inhabiting this iconic space, Puttshack will be a first choice for any night out by filling over 28,000 square feet with four tech-driven, highly competitive mini golf courses, powered by the leading patented Trackaball technology, matched by an innovative, globally inspired dining menu and full cocktail bar with a seriously cool vibe. The elevated entertainment space will authentically draw from and celebrate the music history and energy of the city of Nashville to create a one-of-a-kind mini golf experience.

“Nashville has an energy unlike anywhere else, and we can’t wait to bring the Puttshack experience to this iconic location and thriving city,” says Joe Vrankin, CEO of Puttshack. “We knew we wanted to be in Nashville, so we’re thrilled to be announcing this lease at this point of our expansion.”

Specifically located at 1117 Church Street in Nashville and planning to open in Q3 of 2023, the new Puttshack venue will be ideally situated within a 5-minute walk to Nashville Yards, a next generation mixed-use urban development. It will be a part of the just announced brand new high-end mixed-use project by development firm Flank that will include luxury apartments and more than 42,000 square feet of retail space.

“We are thrilled to have Puttshack anchor the retail at 1111 Church. Puttshack’s Gulch location will serve to bolster what is already one of the best live-work-entertainment neighborhoods in America,” says Ken Copeland, Partner-CIP at Flank. “We look forward to working with the best management team in golf-entertainment in the country to make our project a reality.”

Puttshack is expecting to open its first U.S. location at The Interlock in Atlanta this spring 2021. It will join the brand’s three booming London locations and will be followed by openings in Chicago and Miami later in the year. Already proven in attracting the younger target demographic, the Puttshack team is continuing its strategic expansion plans, identifying optimal locations in top MSAs across the U.S. Puttshack is represented nationally by Mat Focht and Robert Johnson of Emerging Concepts.
