IT STARTED IN 1993

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. 

BRING YOUR OWN HOLES

These festivities grew in size and ambition

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.

A YEAR AND A HALF LATER...

Urban Putt is born

In May 2014 Urban Putt opened its doors in the Mission District in San Francisco to great success. Urban Putt Denver followed in September 2019. Both were sold to Funlab, an Australian company that operates mini-golf courses and other entertainment venues, in 2023, and rebranded as Holey Moley. Meanwhile, Fox went ahead with his plans for Urban Putt San Jose, which opened on Leap Day, February 29, 2024.
