Welcome to Urban Putt, a new kind of miniature golf
We have a dream: indoor minigolf in San Francisco. Throw in great food and drink, an awesome location, and a unswerving commitment to fun and you’ve got a formula for something unique and wonderful. We’ve leased a space (at 1096 South Van Ness Avenue in the Mission) and assembled a top-notch team of architects, designers, and restaurant pros who are working to bring Urban Putt to the city by late 2013 or early 2014. Keep an eye on this space for details.
In the meantime, here’s the latest edition of The Urban Putter, our weekly newsletter. Sign up to get your own copy by joining our mailing list (see the box at right).
Residents Weigh In
Vol. 1, No. 3 | May 2, 2013
A short missive this week, as we are knee-deep in fund raising, permit prepping (San Francisco loves its paperwork!), and designing minigolf holes.
In the meantime, here are the latest tidbits from the press, including a 60-second video from the MissionLocal blog, showing residents’ reactions to the prospect of having a minigolf joint in the neighborhood. And check out the comments for a sense of public sentiment.
On the airwaves: KCBS radio’s Larry Chiaroni aired two interview segments about Urban Putt. The clips do not appear to be posted online. Still, I keep running into folks who tell me they heard me when the segments aired on April 21. Let’s hear it for old media!
Updated newsletter schedule: Urban Putter will be moving to a biweekly frequency, at least until we get closer to opening day. (Yes, I’m aware that biweekly can mean either “every two weeks” or “twice a week.” I mean the former, with the next issue arriving in your inbox on 5/16.)
Until next time.
Head Greenskeeper, Urban Putt
