CHICAGO (January 17, 2020) – Puttshack, the upscale, tech-infused mini golf experience, signs its second U.S. lease to join Oakbrook Center, a premier shopping and entertainment center in Chicago’s western suburb, Oak Brook, Ill.

Located at 1828 Oakbrook Center, Puttshack will join the shopping center’s expansive mix of retail, dining and entertainment experiences. It will occupy more than 25,000 square feet and will feature four unique nine-hole competitive mini golf courses complemented by best-in-class food and beverage offerings and a private event space for hosting social and corporate events. Puttshack Oak Brook is currently slated to open later in 2021.

“With our global headquarters based here in Chicago, we are especially excited to announce our first location in the Chicago metropolitan area,” said Joe Vrankin, CEO of Puttshack. “Our social entertainment experience is truly unlike any other – we can’t wait to bring it to Chicagoland.”

From the founders of Topgolf, Flight Club and AceBounce, Puttshack is the latest leading concept in the emerging and growing market of competitive socializing. Puttshack combines its patented ground-breaking technology with a first-class, immersive social environment to elevate the game of mini golf into a cutting-edge, high-energy mini golf experience that is unlike anything currently on the market and keeps guest coming back time and again. Since opening its first location in 2018, Puttshack now has three London locations with ambitious global plans for expansion.

This announcement follows the social entertainment brand’s first U.S. lease announcement with The Interlock in Atlanta, Ga. Puttshack is expected to begin opening its first U.S. location in spring 2021.
