Puttshack, the world’s first and only upscale, tech-infused mini golf experience with global food and drink, has announced today that it has signed a new lease at The Shops at Houston Center, which is located in the heart of Houston’s vibrant downtown. Recently, Brookfield Properties completed renovations to transform the adjacent Houston Center into a dynamic mixed-use office campus. The Houston Puttshack location, expected to open late 2022, joins Puttshack’s growing list of upcoming locations, including Oak Brook (Chicago), Miami, Boston and Nashville. Puttshack successfully opened its first U.S. location in Atlanta in April 2021.
Puttshack will attract Houstonians looking for a great night out by filling its more than 26,000 square feet with four custom-made, tech-driven, highly competitive mini golf courses, powered by the brand’s leading patented Trackaball technology that keeps score for you as you play. The game play is matched by an innovative, globally inspired dining menu and full cocktail bar, as well as world-class hospitality and a high-energy, upscale nightclub vibe.
“Houston is a booming, top priority market for us, and we are very excited to be an anchor tenant in The Shops at Houston Center,” says Joe Vrankin, CEO of Puttshack. “We can’t wait to bring the Puttshack experience to Texas and continue to expand our presence in dynamic, energetic communities across the entire U.S.”
Located on McKinney Street, Puttshack is ideally situated within walking distance of vibrant dining, retail and entertainment, including Discovery Green, the George R. Brown Convention Center, sports venues, hotels, residential living and more.
“Puttshack is a great new concept, and as we continue to reimagine our iconic Houston Center we are pleased to plan for this tech-infused entertainment experience,” states Travis Overall, Executive Vice President and Head of the Texas Region for Brookfield Properties.
Puttshack successfully opened its first U.S. location at Atlanta’s The Interlock in April, which continues to outperform all success metrics, joining the brand’s three hugely popular London locations. Puttshack plans to open Oak Brook, Ill., in Fall 2021, and Miami and Boston soon after, as well as a Nashville location in 2023. The team is preparing to announce multiple new U.S. locations soon that plan to open in 2022.
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.
