Puttshack, high-tech minigolf comes to Addison

Sports began to receive Black mirror recent treatment. New concepts and experiences related to throwing, catching or hitting the ball are filled with a lot of technology.

There are all sorts of virtual reality hubs in North Texas, including ImaginationsVR in Allen, Zero Latency in Addison, and Sandbox VR in Dallas and Fort Worth, which allow players to experience a variety of games and challenges.

Puttshack is a new game of minigolf where ball tracking sensors and a computerized score counter appear on the playing fields that offer many technological surprises. And one place is coming our way.

Putshack opens new golf, food and drink facility at Village in the Parkway in Addison. According to him, the opening is scheduled for next summer. company statement.

If mini golf sounds like a date your grandparents might go on, don’t worry. This is not it. Firstly, alcoholic drinks can be bought from real bartenders, but food cannot be bought from a vending machine. The 28,000-square-foot facility will feature a full menu for lunch and dinner, as well as cocktails, with a full bar that spans two floors.

This mini golf course lets you do more than putt greens, with occasional hills, aluminum barriers, or a concrete dinosaur blocking your path. Puttshack greens are more innovative, responsive and challenging than those found on a regular mini golf course.

The entire game is electronically automated from the moment you pick up the ball to your last shot. A series of screens guides players through the game. Players take their sticks and balls from an automatic dispenser that cleans the balls (uh-huh) and assigns a tracer to them so the computer can track your score. Putschak calls it “Trackball”.

Addison will have four fields where each player’s ball is tracked and the scores are recorded on a computer system that follows the players to each hole. Scoring is also a bit more complicated than just punches and pars. Each shot earns players a set number of points, ranging from 50 points per hole to 15 points for any hole that takes nine or more shots.

Some holes also have small Easter eggs called “Super Tubes” that are hidden throughout the course and can earn players extra points or even a “hole in one” no matter how many shots they hit. There are also several “hazard traps” built into some parts of the field that will deduct points if players get the ball stuck in them.

The holes themselves are quite difficult if you decide to play the game on the traditional route. Some of the obstacles on the Puttshack tracks include a giant “Beer Pong” hole into which players launch their ball from a ramp into a series of giant red Solo cups, an air hockey table with movable paddles to block your shots, and a giant pinball machine . with bumpers and secret passages. There’s even a spinning wheel opening that can give out prizes like free games or drinks.

“The Puttshack Dallas facility will be a unique, high-energy space with multiple floors and will include brand new features for our high-tech mini golf,” said Logan Power, Puttshack Global Chief Executive and UK President. published statement. “This will be the premier location for everyone in the Dallas area.”
