York’s newest attraction, featuring a 24-lane bowling alley and golf centre, is on course for an April opening.

The Hollywood Bowl Group behind the venture first revealed its plans, which include an American diner and amusements area, just over a year ago.

A spokesman said work at the York Stadium is progressing well and they are on course for an April opening.


Recruiting for 60 jobs at the Monks Cross attraction has now begun.

And further details about Puttstars York have been revealed – before it becomes the second in the country to open its doors.

Three courses

Puttstars mini-golf will have three 9-hole courses, Zig Zag, Slingshot and Pin Ball.

In the game, the winner is the player with the highest points at the end of the game. The fewer putts it takes, the more points you’ll score.

A hole-in-one is worth 1,000 points. But take six or more goes and you only get 100.

Puttstars York will open from 10am-11pm Sunday-Thursday and 10am-midnight on Friday and Saturdays.

It will cost from £4.09 for juniors, £5.09 for adults of £16.49 for a family of four.

Food and jobs

The plans also include an American diner
Food at the diner will include stone-baked pizzas and hot dogs.

There are a variety of jobs now being advertised for the bowling alley and mini-golf, which you can see here.

They include team members, who welcome and interact with customers and run kids’ parties, and kitchen assistants (both £8.21 an hour).

They are also advertising for a deputy manager to help lead and coach the team, deliver on financial targets and be responsible for the centre in the absence of the manager.

It comes with a salary of £25K.
