Mini Golf Continues to Make Waves

Mini Golf Continues to Make Waves

Mini golf is making serious waves worldwide as popularity continues to grow… but don’t just take our word for it… see for yourself what is happening in this fast-paced market…

Let’s look at PopStroke, for example. PopStroke Entertainment Group was founded by Greg Bartoli, a former Wall Street executive, in 2018 and some may recall that Tiger Woods Ventures joined in 2019 as a partner and investor. With six current US locations and a further three in the developmental pipeline, these outdoor mini golf courses have been wildly popular. So much so that in January of 2023, PopStroke was valued at $650 million… and TaylorMade Golf Company has recently made a material investment.

Major players like Topgolf‘s Puttshack are also reaping the benefits… so much so that their BlackRock investment in 2022 is helping to to fund further expansion in the U.S. market for the next several years. This includes a whopping eight more openings in 2023, in Dallas, Denver, Houston, Nashville, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Scottsdale, as well as a second location in Atlanta.

There are multiple “off-course” competitive socialising golf venues popping up all over the place- such as Gareth Bale’s Elevens Group and Cardiff’s DEPOT brand collaboration – Par 59, which now boasts two thriving locations in the UK. Not to mention growing beasts like BOOM BATTLE BAR, Swingers – the crazy golf club, and Drive Shack Inc.‘s Puttery (to name a few!)

In fact… according to the National Golf Foundation, total off-course consumer engagement (27.9 million) has for the first time eclipsed those who play on the course!

Volcano Falls, Milton Keynes

Choose your adventure…

What happens when you create three different worlds under one roof? The answer? MAGIC!

At Volcano Falls Adventure Golf & Bar there’s plenty of fun to be had – where visitors can choose between each of the innovative courses… or book on to all three!

Volcano Falls is a registered trademark of Funstation – Family Entertainment Centres jam packed with Carnival Games, Laser Tag, Adventure Golf and Bowling. This particular venue in Milton Keynes was looking for a complete revamp and fun ways to encourage competitive socialising alongside a delicious food and beverage offering – so they engaged with Greenspan Projects in order to get the golf “ball” rolling…

The venue is blessed with a fantastic amount of space, so initially the ideas began flowing to see how this could be best utilised.

The answer came in the form of three 12-hole adventure golf courses – all with totally unique themes including:

Coney Island Carnival

It’s all about skill in the world of the carnival… and visitors can “step right up” and test theirs in a whirlwind of colour and excitement! This course includes iconic games  fused with adventure golf including duck shoot, Skeeball, Plinko and a play-through helter-skelter. Think high energy, high excitement… and plenty of colour!

Tropicana Beach Club

Life’s a beach… or it can certainly feel like one when you’ve been transported to the hottest beach party in the UK! Visitors can putt their way through Surfer’s Paradise as they traverse surfboards, flamingos and tropical trees before enjoying a pit stop at the Tiki Bar.

Volcano Valley

When was the last time you had to look out for molten lava rivers and prehistoric predators? Within Volcano Valley, visitors can experience just this as they putt past volcanoes, waterfalls, jungle foliage and bridges in this immersive and historic wonderland!
