Located at 15059 N Scottsdale Road, Puttshack will cover 25,000 square feet over two stories, and feature four unique, tech-driven, competitive mini-golf courses. Each course is integrated with Puttshack’s patented Trackaball™ technology, which powers the entire gameplay experience and provides seamless automated scoring, bonus point opportunities, interactive games at each hole, and more. Paired with Puttshack’s lively gameplay is an inventive, globally-inspired dining menu and full cocktail bar, as well as world-class hospitality and a vibrant, upscale nightlife atmosphere. Puttshack will also incorporate multiple private event spaces for exclusive parties that can be held both inside and outside on expansive patio areas.
“Puttshack’s truly unique, spirited energy matches the atmosphere at Scottsdale Quarter perfectly and will provide Scottsdale residents and visitors with a fantastic new destination to spend time with friends and family,” said Susan Walmesley, CMO of Puttshack. “We can’t wait to officially open our doors in Scottsdale and welcome our first guests in Arizona to experience the unrivaled Puttshack game, food, and drink.”
“We are delighted to have Puttshack join us at Scottsdale Quarter,” said Richard Hunt, General Manager of Scottsdale Quarter. “This one-of-a-kind destination will bring an unparalleled entertainment experience to our community, expanding the center’s already dynamic array of shopping, dining, and entertainment options.”
Puttshack takes great pride in supporting the local communities it calls home and is happy to support the Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center (SWCC). SWCC is dedicated to rescuing, providing sanctuary, and rehabilitating wildlife that has been displaced or orphaned until they are ready to be returned to their natural homes in the wild. In benefit of SWCC, Puttshack will donate $1.00 for every purchase of the “Arizona Tailpipe,” a unique and sharable spring roll appetizer filled with chimichanga chicken, chihuahua cheese, sauteed veggies, and refried beans, served with poblano cheese and a red enchilada dipping sauce on the side. Guests will also be able to indulge in additional menu options with a Scottsdale spin including the Sonoran Flatbread, featuring bacon-wrapped sausage and San Marzano sauce topped with mozzarella, drunken beans, onion, and jalapenos, served with avocado salsa.
Puttshack’s U.S. footprint will stand at nine locations once Scottsdale opens its doors (preceded by locations in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Miami, Denver, Pittsburgh, and St. Louis, along with four locations in the United Kingdom). The company’s ambitious growth plans will continue with additional venues set to be announced this year.
A growth capital round of $150 million from funds managed by BlackRock, Inc. in late 2022 continues to allow Puttshack to secure unique and desirable real estate opportunities as it expands into more top markets across the U.S., as well as invest in new technologies to enhance overall guest experience. The recent growth capital follows a $60 million funding round from Promethean Investments in 2021.
Puttshack will be open to the public Sunday through Wednesday, 11am to 12am, and Thursday through Saturday, 11am to 1am. Kids are welcome into the venue until 8pm, after which it becomes 21+.
