Puttery, a new concept that aims to change the way you think of mini golf, will open a South End location later this year.
Why it matters: Dallas-based golf-entertainment Drive Shack Inc., CEO Hana Khouri explains that Puttery is an adults-only, immersive experience that puts a contemporary spin on putting.
- One of Puttery’s newest financial backers includes Rory McIlroy, a lover of Charlotte who won this year’s Wells Fargo Championship.
- Puttery’s first location in Dallas opened this month. The brand has other locations planned in Houston, Miami and D.C.
What to expect: Each course has a theme and transports players through settings like libraries, ski lifts and rooftops. Courses will use technology like digital scoreboards. “For Charlotte, we’ve created two uniquely themed nine-hole courses, each with a distinctive look and feel.”
- For food and drinks, a curated selection of shareables sits alongside inventive craft cocktails.
When choosing where in Charlotte to plant Puttery, Khouri says that South End fit the target demographic. “With its vibrant nightlife and focus on entertainment, we know Puttery will be complementary to South End’s existing lineup of options, and a choice destination for locals and visitors alike.”
Location: Puttery is at 210 Rampart St.
Timeline: Puttery is slated to open in Q4 of this year.
