Puttshack, the world’s first upscale tech-infused mini golf experience, announced its expansion in the Midwest with the signing of a new lease at Southdale Center in Edina, a suburb of Minneapolis. The new Puttshack outpost will be the first location to open in the Twin Cities, in spring 2024.

Puttshack Edina will be the first choice for residents and visitors of the Twin Cities looking for a fun and unique experience with family, friends, and colleagues. The more than 25,000-square-foot space will feature four highly competitive, tech-driven nine-hole minigolf courses powered by the brand’s leading patented Trackaball technology, which elevates the game play by keeping track of your score. Spanning across two floors, the space will have two full-service bars and an expansive outdoor patio with seating for up to 100 guests. For those looking to host exclusive events for friends and coworkers, a private event space with a capacity of 80 will be available as well.

“We’re excited to see continued growth and expansion of our tech-infused minigolf concept, especially to Minneapolis and St. Paul, two thriving cities in the heart of the Midwest,” says Dave Diamond, president of Puttshack. “Puttshack Edina will serve as the ideal destination for family outings, dates, and nights out with friends and colleagues.”

From the cofounders of Topgolf, Flight Club, and AceBounce, Puttshack is the latest leading concept in the emerging and growing market of competitive socializing. Puttshack combines its patented groundbreaking technology with a first-class, immersive social environment to elevate the game of minigolf into a cutting-edge experience.

Puttshack’s Trackaball technology is integrated through the entire game experience, including automated scoring, bonus points opportunities, interactive games at each hole, and more. A few of the most popular holes include life-size beer pong, air hockey, roulette, connect four, and a true/false hole, all of which allow guests to enjoy the game of minigolf and compete in some of their favorite nostalgic games. The game play is matched by an innovative, globally inspired dining menu, handcrafted cocktails, and upscale hospitality.

Known as the nation’s first indoor regional shopping mall, Southdale Center is conveniently located off 66th Street and France Avenue, and serves the nearby communities of Edina, Richfield, Bloomington, Eden Prairie, Minneapolis, St. Louis Park, and St. Paul. With a wide array of retail boutiques and dining options, the mall will welcome the new Puttshack and the one-of-a-kind experience it offers.

“Upscale, experiential brands like Puttshack are exactly the type of stand-out offerings we’re committed to bringing to this community as we forge forward with the progressive transformation of Southdale Center,” says Southdale General Manager Judy Tullius.

The upcoming venue in Edina will be Puttshack’s second location in Minnesota, as the company previously announced its venue opening in Minneapolis in 2024.
