Who We Are & What We Do
Located in the heart of Denver's LoDo district, Urban Putt is the city's first and only indoor miniature golf course. Urban Putt offers guests a fun, only-in-Denver experience with top-notch food and drinks, and a fantastical, high-tech 18-hole mini-golf course. Steve Fox–along with a dream team of industrial designers, robotics engineers, welders and artists–has created a technically sophisticated playground for people of all ages, where imagination has free reign and all of the senses are engaged. A vibrant and unique venue, Urban Putt is an equally perfect destination for a sporting round of mini-golf, family outing, sit-down dinner, company party, special event, or drinks with friends..

The idea for Urban Putt was born out of a series of mini-golf-themed house parties that Steve Fox and his wife Leslie Crawford hosted at their San Francisco home starting in 1993. These biennial festivities, with party goers encouraged to “Bring Your Own Holes,” grew in size and ambition, as the golf holes evolved from simple affairs to complex, often conceptual pieces of playable art. Eventually, the events outgrew their house; the last “Crawfox Mini-Golf” party took place in 2009. But when Fox wearied of his 35-year career in publishing, miniature golf—this time as a commercial enterprise, complete with restaurant, bar, and party space—beckoned.
In 2012, Fox quit his job as Editorial Director of PC World and began writing the business plan for Urban Putt. Later that year, he found a space; hired an architect, a general manager and a chef; Urban Putt San Francisco was born.
After 5 years of success Fox started to look for another vibrant city that would be a great fit for Urban Putt. He required a couple of things... a fabulous city center, a historical building that could be renovated and put back into use, and a WHOLE BUNCH of space.
Soon Fox set his sights on Denver. The city has an electric downtown, with young professionals, families, and a great vibe. Now he just needed the building. Almost as if by fate, The Cable Building on the corner of Lawrence and 18th became available. The beautiful historical building provided enough space, charm, and history to fit the bill! Construction began in early May 2019 and we opened the doors in September of 2019.
