As the scorching heat continues in Scottsdale, Arizona, it’s no surprise we all want to stay indoors. For this month’s event and restaurant, my family and a few friends checked out Puttshack. Located in Scottsdale Quarter, Puttshack is a cutting-edge entertainment destination that seamlessly blends mini-golf, technology, and a lively atmosphere for all ages. The evening provided a cool environment, a little competition, and a very fun winning (for me 😀) memory.
As I walked into Puttshack, I was immediately struck by the lively ambiance. The neon lights, vibrant colors, and futuristic vibe set the stage for an unforgettable experience. The venue boasts four tech-driven mini-golf courses. We played the ruby course which had 9 creatively designed holes including a Plinko themed hole and a Trivia hole that challenged our groups players of all skill levels.
Our entire group was also impressed with the technology used. The golf balls were smart balls equipped with score tracking technology. Our shots and scores were tracked in real- time so there was no need for carrying around the scorecard and calculating everyone's shots. The interactive screens kept the friendly competitions and excitement alive, fueling friendly rivalries. We were able to solely focus on the game and having fun because of this innovative technology. The final score…let me just say, I’m no Tiger Woods but that doesn’t mean I couldn’t win. Yes, I won!
Beyond the fantastic golfing experience, Puttshack excels in its culinary offerings. The venue has a diverse and delectable menu that caters to all tastes. Whether you're a fan of gourmet dishes, finger foods, or crave something sweet, Puttshack's kitchen has you covered. The bar serves up a wide array of refreshing cocktails, craft beers, and non-alcoholic beverages, making it the perfect place to unwind after a round of golf or simply relax with friends and family.
Puttshack in Scottsdale Quarter is a fusion of traditional mini-golf and cutting-edge technology, creating a dynamic and unforgettable entertainment experience. Whether you're an avid golfer or someone seeking a fun-filled day out with friends and family, Puttshack has something special to offer. We will definitely be going back!
