Mini golf and restaurant concept Puttshack is to launch a £5m site at the intu Watford shopping centre in 2020.

It will be followed by an opening at 1 Poultry, in London’s Bank, later in the year.

Puttshack, which offers mini golf alongside a menu of pizza, burgers, desserts and plant-based options, says it plans to launch a new site every 12 weeks from 2020.

The group will also open at intu Lakeside next month, joining Market Halls​ ​and Chiktopia at the scheme.

Puttshack raised £27m funding in June, led by Promethean Investment, towards national and international expansion.

CEO Joe Vrankin says the mini golf concept is aiming to offer an "enhanced leisure experience" suitable for daytime family outings and as a late-night "party venue with DJs".

Puttshack was launched at Westfield London White City in July 2018 by Steve and Dave Joliffe, founders of Topgolf, and Adam Breeden who is behind ‘competitive socialising’ concepts Flight Club, Bounce and All Star Lanes.

Breeden told BigHospitality's​ sister site MCA​ last year that he was aiming for 75 sites across Bounce, Flight Cub USA and Puttshack by 2023.
