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!

Latest Project

Foxy’s Adventure Golf

Penrith Golf Hub is now home to Cumbria’s newest mini golf attraction Foxy’s Adventure Golf!  

The venue was looking to enrich its current site with an Adventure golf Course inspired by the stunning, local location within the Lake District. By incorporating natural colours and locally sourced materials with bespoke theming and a standout water feature, we have transformed this space into an unforgettable journey of challenging obstacles and whimsical surprises! 

A moment for the design… 

We took design inspiration from local details such as the stone dry walls and the undulating landscape, including the local landmark of Penrith Castle at the top of the course. We then populated each hole with some of the animals you would find in the Lake district. – Peter Lishman, Creative Designer. 

Penrith Golf Hub is the perfect venue for everyone, with its wide range of golf-based activities from a 14-bay driving range fitted with Toptracer technology to Foot Golf and a 9-hole Golf Course perfect for all abilities! 

Since opening on the 26th of May this incredible adventure golf course has attracted tons of visitors, but don’t just take our word for it… Let’s have a look at what they have had to say via Trustpilot: 

We had the best time!! Our party was aged 17 -75 years old , my mam can’t walk far and is a bit unsteady on her feet, but with a little guidance she absolutely loved it, to the point I’ve never heard her cheer so much and be so competitive 😂 It was really good, a beautiful course, a lot of time and effort has gone into this, very well planned out, awesome sculptures .. would highly recommend for all age groups 👏🏼🌟 we loved it!! – Unknown
