The Tiger Woods Connection
Golf legend Tiger Woods has once again made a significant impact on the sport, but this time off the professional courses. He’s played a pivotal role in bringing PopStroke to Glendale. Located in the Westgate Entertainment District, this 36-hole mini-golf course offers a blend of traditional golf and modern technology. Woods, along with his golf course design firm TGR Design, has been instrumental in the creation and design of PopStroke. In fact, his influence is evident throughout the facility, from the sale of replicas of his iconic tiger head cover to a prominently displayed quote as golfers begin their game.
What Makes PopStroke Unique
PopStroke stands out from other mini-golf courses in several ways. Firstly, each of its two 18-hole courses offers varying levels of difficulty. The black course is beginner-friendly with a mostly flat layout, while the red course presents a challenge with its numerous obstacles. What’s even more intriguing is that the holes at the Glendale location are designed to mimic the greens of actual golf courses in the area. This means that each visit offers a unique golfing experience, different from PopStroke’s other locations in Florida and Texas.
Dining and Entertainment at PopStroke
Beyond golf, PopStroke offers a comprehensive entertainment experience. There’s a restaurant serving delicious food, an ice cream parlor for those sweet cravings, and an outdoor gaming area. And if you’re in the mood for some drinks, there’s a rooftop bar to enjoy. During their soft opening, the staff recommended trying out the smash burgers or crispy chicken sandwiches. And while there aren’t regular food or drink promotions, they do offer themed nights with discounted golf rates.
The Tech-Savvy Side of PopStroke
In today’s digital age, even mini-golf is getting a tech upgrade. PopStroke has integrated technology into its gameplay. Golfers use a special ball, the iPutt, which keeps score via a smartphone app. As you play, your scores are displayed on a Jumbotron leaderboard. Plus, through the PopStroke loyalty rewards app program, golfers can earn ‘Pop Bucks’.
Expansion Plans in Arizona
While Glendale residents are enjoying the new PopStroke, there’s more good news for Arizonians. PopStroke is expanding, with a second location currently under construction in Scottsdale. This new spot is set to open its doors in the summer, giving more people the chance to experience the unique blend of golf, food, and technology.
