Here’s what the new Puttstars will look like when it opens in York later this month.

As we reported last month, the mini-golf attraction will open in the LNER Community Stadium on Monday, 17 August.

And today the company has launched a competition to find a mini-golf fan who can tee off Puttstars.

There will be three nine-hole courses

Not only will the lucky winner get a sneak peek of the courses before the venue is open to the public, they will also be given a year’s free mini golf pass for them and up to four guests to York’s latest family entertainment venue

You can enter here, by midday on Tuesday, 11 August.

Entertainment hub

Looks challenging

Puttstars includes three interactive and fun-filled nine-hole courses, known as Zig Zag, Slingshot and Pinball.

Centre manager Nathan Barwick said: “We’re really excited to find out who is York’s biggest mini golf fan and give them and a friend the opportunity to be the first people ever to play at our Puttstars centre in York and road test our three new courses. 

“Puttstars is an all-round entertainment hub for the families and young people of our city and we know that newbies and pros alike will love this new interactive mini golf experience.”

Also on offer will be a bar and diner serving pizzas, hotdogs and shakes.

Safety measures

Extensive cleaning and social distancing measures will be in place around the centre to ensure guests can “Have Fun and Play Safe” , including safety shields at all till points, hand sanitising stations at the entrance and  around the venue, and PPE-wearing team members cleaning all putters and balls after each use.

Game booking slots will be appropriately limited to control capacity, and amusement machines as well as bar and dining seating will be spaced out, with signage visible throughout the venue.
