"Puttshack is a new, innovative entertainment option for downtown Houston, which makes it a perfect fit for the reimagined Houston Center campus. Whether it is a team-building activity for the office or a fun night of competition, Brookfield is pleased to offer this tech-infused entertainment experience at The Highlight for all tenants and visitors," said Travis Overall, Executive Vice President and Head of the Texas Region for Brookfield Properties. 

Mini-golfing is elevated at Puttshack with its Trackaball technology which is integrated throughout the game for guests to have a cutting-edge, high-energy experience. The courses are also interactive to provide obstacles at every hole and have automated scoring, bonus point opportunities, and more.

Puttshack also gives back to the local community by supporting Houston Food Bank. As part of its give back program, Puttshack Houston is pledging $1 to the organization for every purchase of "Texas Tailpipe," a locally inspired sharable spring roll dish packed with green-chile pork, bacon fat tamale, fresco chile & Chihuahua cheese, and served with avocado salsa and poblano cheese dipping sauce.
