Located in the Scottsdale Promenade shopping center at Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard and Scottsdale Road, just a mile from Troon’s Corporate Headquarters, Putting World is a 25,000 square-foot golf entertainment and event venue.

“As a PGA Professional, I am excited about the opportunity Putting World provides to introduce new golfers to the game, appeal to the existing player, and allows golfers who may not be able to play a full game of golf, to stay engaged with the game," said Steve Leonard, COO of Putting World and President of the Southwest PGA.

In addition to the putting course, Putting World also features Bar19, a bar and restaurant offering a delicious chef-driven menu with locally sourced food and specialty cocktails in an upscale setting; private event spaces perfect for corporate outings, fundraisers, parties and more; a golf shop selling clothing, putters and covers; a build shop to customize putters; performance studios for putting lessons and fittings; all surrounded by 55 86-inch televisions providing an excellent setting for watching sports.

“As a PGA member, I am grateful for what Troon has done for the game of golf and we are all excited to see the impact our partnership has on the growth of Putting World heading into our second year,” said Tim Suzor, CEO and founder of Putting World. 

Putting World is open to the public for daily play but also offers a variety of memberships, including corporate memberships, available for unique, exclusive experiences as part of the innovative future of golf. Members enjoy unlimited rounds, privileged access to Putting World’s state-of-the-art performance studios, professional instruction benefits and member clinics, special member events and more. 

“We are thrilled to partner with Putting World Scottsdale and their team,” said Troon Vice President of Sales and Marketing Dolf May.  “This unique putting experience is located in the heart of Scottsdale golf and is generating a lot of buzz in the industry.
