Meet Puttshack: the newest and craziest way to play mini golf. The high-tech-infused course, plus a creative and delicious menu of food and drinks, make this the perfect late-night adult outing.
At Puttshack, long gone are the days when you kept score with pen and paper. They have “Trackball Technology,” which records your gameplay and intense fairways that can help you win or lose points depending on how you play.
Each game has 9 holes and takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes, depending on how large your group is and how busy the establishment is. And the point system will keep the competition fierce. Shoot your shot for a hole-in-one, which could garner 50 points, and look for ways to score bonus points in every game.
Another bonus is the events and weekend-only live DJs that keep Puttshack golfers jammin’ all night long. You can keep your drinks on the course and groove amongst the vibrant lights and venue-curated playlists. There is a hole in this course that might take you back to your college days or last weekend. At the Beer Pong hole, attempt to score through the Freshman cup, which may or may not guarantee a hole-in-one.
This next hole might be the best place to show off your skills. Try to make a shot off the ramp and through the Ring of Fire, or play it safe and hit your ball around the side ramp.
Remember, the way you play helps you gain or lose points. Look out for hazards, Supertubes, ramps, and ways to make bonus points if you want to take home the victory.
The well thought out menu is reasonably priced and consists of perfect bites for this excursion. The full-fledged food menu has a variety of appetizers like Chorizo & Cheese Empanadas and Korean Bao Buns and entrees like The Sonoran flatbread, Atlanta Hot Sandwich, and Fried Chicken Cobb salad.
The signature cocktail menu features perfectly named, boozy drinks like the Very Berry Mule, Hennessey Island Cocktail, and Spiced Pineapple Mezcal Margarita.
It is highly recommended that you pre-book online for nights and weekends. However, you can walk in, but a game is not guaranteed.
This mini golf space is perfect for family outings, competition between friends or dates, and parties. While kids are allowed, Puttshack turns to a 21+ only facility at 8 p.m. Large groups are welcome, but groups of 13 or more must submit an inquiry online.
