Puttshack—the world’s first and only upscale, tech-driven mini golf experience—has opened its ninth U.S. venue in Scottsdale, Arizona. Surrounded by the Sonoran Desert, myriad luxury hotels, eclectic shops, and more, Puttshack will offer meeting-goers a high-energy experience like nothing else. Top things off with globally inspired cuisine and hand-crafted cocktails and mocktails, and people of all ages will find something to enjoy at the venue.

Located in the city’s Scottsdale Quarter, a high-end multiuse development, Puttshack will cover 25,000 square feet over two stories and feature four tech-infused, competitive miniature 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. The venue also boasts multiple private event spaces and an outdoor patio.

“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 family and friends,” says Susan Walmesley, chief marketing officer of Puttshack.

In addition to facilitating an exciting and welcoming atmosphere, Puttshack also aims to support the community it calls home. For every purchase of the “Arizona Tailpipe” spring roll appetizer, Scottsdale’s Puttshack will donate $1 to support the Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center, a sanctuary for the rehabilitation of displaced or orphaned wildlife in Scottsdale.

“We are delighted to have Puttshack join us at Scottsdale Quarter,” says 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 is also located in Atlanta, Georgia; Boston, Massachusetts; Chicago, Illinois; Houston, Texas; Miami, Florida; Denver, Colorado; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; St. Louis, Missouri; as well as four locations in the United Kingdom. A growth capital round of $150 million from funds managed by BlackRock, Inc., in late 2022 continues to allow Puttshack to expand.

The venue is open from 11 a.m. to 12 a.m. Sunday through Wednesday, and 11 a.m. through 1 a.m. Thursday through Saturday. Kids are welcome until 8 p.m., after which it becomes 21-plus.
