The Putters and Gutters location on U.S. 281 in Marble Falls is one step closer to teeing up a variety of family activities for the community. The week of April 5, water infrastructure work, including the installation of two fire hydrants required by the city, was completed, owner Roy Cockrell said.
For Cockrell, this signals the true beginning of the building process.
“(Installing water lines) was a big feat and took a lot of time,” he said. “We’re glad it’s out of the way now so we can really get started.”
Cockrell is hoping for a mid-July or early August opening.
Since construction began four months ago, impressive progress has been made at the site. By April 13, the miniature golf green was completed, the slab for the bowling alley was laid, and building construction was underway. Cockrell noted the construction site will look completely different with each week that passes.
The planned Putters and Gutters center will be bigger than the existing Lampasas location and feature a 20-lane bowling alley, a 14,150-square-foot outdoor concert venue, and a skating rink. Cockrell is especially excited to provide the community with a high-quality music venue. The Marble Falls location is near the Pedernales Electric Cooperative office on the north side of town.
“This is going to be fun for the whole family,” he said.
