Ten years after opening, Urban Putt’s Mission District location closes to make room for Holey Moley’s San Francisco debut

Don’t put your putters away just yet; Urban Putt in the Mission District is closing after ten years of fun and games.

Urban Putt's Mission District Location Closes After 10 Years, Makes

According to SFist, the popular mini-golf destination noted for its Instagram-worthy settings and lively concoctions finally shuttered its doors on December 30. However, an Australian business called Funlab plans to open Holey Moley, a brand-new festive putting concept, in the same location, with the goal of making its debut there in early 2024.

Urban Putt’s creator, Steve Fox, a former editor at CNet and PC World, shared his feelings about the ending.

“I was present the night before we closed. My heart was a little melancholy as I strolled around the course and observed things, Fox said to Mission Local. “It’s heart-breaking.” Fans of his miniature golf invention won’t have to wait long, though, as Fox is bringing his putter to San Jose, where a new Urban Putt establishment is scheduled to debut in late January 2024.

The enormously successful Holey Moley brand will assume the baton in the Mission District location, choosing to embrace a torch-passing approach as opposed to a torching of the bridges.

Holey Moley, renowned for elevating the standard putt-putt experience to a multisensory adventure, is getting ready to offer a novel spin on the game.

The Urban Putt team thanked their staff and devoted followers in a Facebook post for helping to realize their ambition since 2014.

Even though the new Holey Moley outfit’s specifics are still unknown, the brand shook things up when it announced in May 2023 that it would be taking over the Urban Putt outlets in Denver and San Francisco.

Continuity for the customer experience is crucial because current employees are expected to stay on board.

An existing website for the San Francisco Holey Moley, featuring an email list signup, awaits enthusiastic mini-golf enthusiasts interested in this emerging attraction.

And don’t worry if you’re worried about a mini-golf drought in the city. Urbanites looking for a little whimsy wrapped up in a pleasant activity will continue to find San Francisco’s Stagecoach Greens and Subpar Miniature Golf at Ghirardelli Square to have greens that are still flowing.
