HOUSTON – (Realty News Report) – A Tiger Woods-designed putting and dining entertainment facility is under development in the Katy Grand destination located at Interstate 10 and the Grand Parkway/Texas 99 on the west side of Houston.
The 3.2-acre PopStroke golf entertainment facility will include two, elaborate 18-hole courses designed by Woods and an8,000-SF restaurant.
Woods, who has won numerous golf championships, said PopStroke entertainment facilities will be opening across the nation.
“I am very excited about our expansion plans,” Woods said in a press release. “Putting is a universal part of golf that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and skill levels. It has been rewarding to see the broad and diverse group of guests enjoying their experience at PopStroke, and I look forward to seeing players make those long putts in locations throughout the South and Southwest. Each new location will have a different course design and layout giving players unique putting challenges as they travel across the country.”
PopStroke is poised to dominate the minigolf industry. Its experiential, family-driven concept features two 18-hole courses created by Tiger Woods’ TGR Design team, offering competitive challenges for experienced golfers and the less-skilled set alike. In addition to teeing up, the experience includes a full-service restaurant, bar with signature cocktails and craft beers, premium ice cream parlor, outdoor games and playground.
PopStroke has properties in Port Saint Lucie and Fort Myers, Fla., and recently announced
locations coming to Sarasota, Orlando, Tampa and Delray Beach plus Glendale and Scottsdale, Ariz. Representing the elite brand in the Katy Grand transaction were its master brokers Tom Godino and Noah Jones of Atlantic Realty in Jupiter, Fla.
In a landmark deal for west Houston, Florida-based PopStroke Entertainment Group will open a Tiger Woods-designed golf entertainment facility – the first in Texas – in NewQuest Properties’ Katy Grand.
“PopStroke is the most innovative family-oriented golf concept in today’s entertainment category. Choosing Katy Grand for its flagship location in Texas is an incredible honor,” says Jeff Hayes, managing partner of NewQuest’s land and tenant advisory services.
The technologically-advanced golf-entertainment concept uses a customizable mobile app for delivering orders to any spot on the course, showcasing scores on a digital scoreboard and enrolling in a rewards program. Part of the experience includes a commemorative e6 golf ball from Bridgestone Golf, Woods’ preferred manufacturer for two decades.
“This is a high-profile win for Katy, West Houston and NewQuest’s project,” says Heather Nguyen, development partner in the Houston-based brokerage firm. “PopStroke puts Katy Grand on the map and speaks to the strength of the location.”
Within two miles of the project, the population has spiked 47% in recent years. The average household income is $123,000 per year in the five-mile trade area.
“Interest in Katy Grand is surpassing pre-pandemic levels. With all tenants quickly rebounding, our restaurants are hitting record numbers,” Nguyen says. She and Rebecca Le, a NewQuest vice president, lease Katy Grand development.
“PopStroke’s facility will add another dimension to Katy Grand. It’s rewarding for NewQuest to have created a five-star dining and entertainment destination that has drawn so many new brands to Texas,” Nguyen says.
