Puttshack was founded by Steve Jolliffe and Dave Jolliffe, the original founders of Topgolf and World Golf Systems, as well as Adam Breeden, co-founder of All Star Lanes.

Puttshack opened its first location in 2018. It now has three venues in London and plans to expand across the globe, beginning with the launch in Atlanta.

This will be followed by openings in Chicago and Miami later in 2021. Puttshack has also signed a new lease in Nashville, with the attraction set to debut in the second half of 2023.

The first US attraction covers 25,000 square feet and houses four mini-golf courses, powered by patented Trackaball technology. In addition, Puttshack includes a dining menu, cocktail bar and entertainment space with rooftop patio.

“We are thrilled to be opening Puttshack’s first US location in Atlanta,” said Joe Vrankin, CEO of Puttshack. “This city has an amazing energy, and we can’t wait to bring the Puttshack experience to the community in just a few short weeks.”

Puttshack Atlanta will be located at The Interlock, a $450m mixed-use development offering new accommodation, residences, dining and shopping in West Midtown.

In addition, Puttshack Atlanta will support the local community through a partnership with Giving Kitchen. Puttshack is pledging $1 for every purchase of the Georgia Tailpipe.

Puttshack’s general contractor is ARCO/Murray, a national entertainment-specialized design-builder also behind the construction of over 50 Topgolf locations in the U.S.

The trend for indoor golf is rapidly growing, as indoor shooting ranges replace outdoor courses. Topgolf is also opening its first venue in the state of New York.

X-Golf, the indoor golf simulator franchise, recently announced expansion plans for North America through 2021. The company said its footprint will double by the middle of 2021.
