San Francisco’s Market Street could be home to a Rory McIlroy-backed “adult mini-golf facility," following a request filed with the city’s planning department in late July.
Drive Shack Inc. is seeking approval to expand its presence into San Francisco by establishing an outpost at 945 Market St. Drive Shack owns and operates other locations of its concept, called The Puttery, which combines mini-golf with food and drink, elsewhere in the U.S.
The Puttery describes itself as a “social entertainment and mini-golf experience with curated cuisine and crafted cocktails,” according to the San Francisco Business Times.
The planning department filing calls for the venue to occupy 20K SF. Of this, almost 7K SF will be dedicated to the mini-golf course, with over 4K SF dedicated to dining and the rest allocated for a kitchen and bar space.

The project is slated to contain 289 residential units including a mix of studios and one- and two-bedroom units.

The company also promoted two longtime employees, Jessica Rosati and Brianna McHenry, to vice president of engagement.
