Hollywood Bowl Group, one of the UK’s leading leisure operators, has today announced its plans to open its fifth indoor mini-golf centre as part of the major redevelopment of Peterborough’s Queensgate Shopping Centre.

Teeing-off on 11th November, Puttstars is a £2.6 million entertainment centre which is set to offer mini-golf fans exciting fun inside Queensgate’s highly anticipated £60 million extension.

Located on the second and third floor of Queensgate shopping centre’s new leisure extension, the new Puttstars family entertainment centre will bring affordable fun and a quality experience to Peterborough when it opens its doors for the first time on Friday 11th November, and will also create 30 new jobs in a variety of different front of house and hospitality team roles.


“This announcement is a major milestone for the Puttstars brand, as we look forward to opening our fifth indoor mini-golf and entertainment centre in the UK, here in Peterborough.

‘Following the successful opening of Puttstars Harrow earlier this year, we’re thrilled to be expanding our Puttstars brand further by bringing our unique mini-golf experience for families and groups of friends to enjoy in Peterborough, and we can’t wait to welcome customers to the venue.”

Steve Burns, CEO of Hollywood Bowl Group, said:


It will be a hole-in-one experience for guests, as the centre will offer the ultimate mini-golf experience with a unique and modern twist, thanks to three fun filled nine-hole courses, The Rookie, The Enthusiast and The Master, each with a different level of difficulty. For the competitive out there, scoring is cleverly done online through your mobile, with bragging rights for those who make the coveted leaderboard.

On top of indoor mini-golf fun, guests who visit the centre will also get to enjoy its stylish bar and diner serving up delicious food and drink options, including tasty pizzas, sizzling hotdogs, thick shakes and signature cocktails.

Puttstars will also have an awesome amusement area filled with family favourite games and leading arcade machines to keep the competition going, as well as air hockey and racing games.



“We are delighted to welcome Puttstars to Peterborough’s Queensgate Shopping Centre. This indoor mini-golf centre will be a fantastic addition to our leisure complex, giving people another great way to spend quality time with friends and family. Puttstars offers a premium experience, and we are very pleased to welcome them here in Peterborough, especially as part of our new extension which has been so highly anticipated.”

Mark Broadhead, Centre Director at Queensgate Shopping Centre
