Puttstars located in The Springs in East Leeds opening in mid-2020 and is an indoor adventure golf course and entertainment complex. With ample free parking, and located amongst a retail park, there are lots to offer.
Puttstars – Golf
Puttstars has 3 courses, each of which are 9 holes long. As you can imagine, as the complex has just opened, the courses are of excellent quality. There are none of those annoying rips in the carpet and as it is all inside, you don’t need to worry about the wind and rain!!
The golf courses are of a decent difficulty for all, but for the smaller kids, they might need some help hitting the ball up some of the slopes. However, the course is modern and you won’t see any of the old fashioned windmills that you might see elsewhere!!
Perhaps the best parts is the fact you don’t have to carry the little pencil and paper to keep score. You’re given a unique code and at the end of each hole, you log onto a tablet and record your score. At first, I thought it was a bit gimmicky, but it really kept Heidi’s enthusiasm going!! However, it also meant that Heidi said that she got holes in one every time!!
It probably takes 30-40 minutes to complete a course, and so it might be an idea to play one round, have a break and then do the other one.
Heidi was 7 when we came and to be honest, that is probably the youngest you can bring a child.
Puttstars – Arcades
Puttstars also has a small section of arcade games to keep young and old entertained. There is a cash machine on site, but because of Covid-19, it was out of action, so come with cash with you for the time being!
Some of the machines can give tickets to win prizes, but because I didn’t have any cash on me, we couldn’t work out if they were good value for money or not.
Puttstars – Food
There is a small menu available of both food and drinks. The prices are correct as at July 2020 and are subject to change.
As a result of Covid-19, the tables are socially distant and the food is brought to you in the seating area. As such, you don’t need to worry so much about infection.
Other bits and bobs
Puttstars is over 2 floors, although there is a lift between the 2. Because of this, and the fact the flooring is flat, it is absolutely fine for prams. However, there is little to entertain younger children, I wouldn’t recommend taking non-playing children, unless they are teeny tiny. However, there is food/drink on both floors!
Parking is free and plentiful, but don’t drive looking for Puttstars. The main car park is next to Next, so aim for there and walk through to Puttstars. I made that mistake and wasted about 10 minutes!!
Pre-booking is advised as the attraction is new and numbers are limited to maintain social distancing. We had to give our details for Track and Trace, but I think we are all getting used to that.
We had a wonderful time and it is on Heidi’s list of places to come back to! I’m sure we will be back, probably with cash to spend on the arcades this time!!
