A mini-golf oasis

Welcome to PopStroke, where we've reinvented the classic pastime of mini-golf into an extraordinary experience. Imagine a place where the charm of traditional mini-golf meets innovative technology and custom-designed courses, where playful challenges unfold against the backdrop of beautifully designed landscapes. This is PopStroke — where the pure joy of mini-golf extends beyond family outings and date nights to welcome guests of all skills and ages seeking a unique and memorable experience.

PopStroke brings a new spin to mini-golf where we swapped the windmills and waterfalls with next-generation technology and custom-designed courses. The PopStroke mobile app allows you to order drinks for on-course delivery effortlessly while keeping score electronically. PopStroke locations boast two 18-hole putting courses, jumbotrons, and large TVs all throughout the property, complemented by lively bars and a full-service scratch restaurant. Beyond the greens, PopStroke provides additional amenities, including an ice cream parlor, a playground, and an array of outdoor games like cornhole and foosball.

Our history

The story of PopStroke began long before our first venue opened its doors in 2019. Meet Greg Bartoli, a former Wall Street executive at JP Morgan turned entrepreneur. Greg's vision was to create a dynamic, interactive mini-golf and entertainment experience that brought everyone together regardless of age, background, or skill level. In 2013, he founded JEM Capital, an investment firm specializing in leisure, hospitality, technology, and real estate — the seeds that would grow into the PopStroke experience.

JEM Capital's journey included the establishment of Lighthouse Cove, which Greg founded in 2013 - a mini-golf and sports-themed restaurant gem in Jupiter, Florida. Greg's children were 1, 3, and 5 years old at the time. He wanted to develop a place that could bring the entire family together, across generations, to enjoy not just golf but also a lively atmosphere with music, great food, a sports bar with an abundance of TVs, a playground, and ice cream (of course!). Lighthouse Cove became an instant success, which then led to three Lighthouse Cove venues across the state of Florida. The Lighthouse Cove brand served as the proof of concept for Greg's vision, establishing the groundwork for the evolution of PopStroke. The name itself is a testament to family and the love of the game — the name "PopStroke" pays homage to Greg's Dad, who was a scratch golfer, introduced Greg to the game of golf, and is affectionately known as "PopPop" by his grandchildren. The word PopStroke is also a term used in golf slang to describe a short putting backstroke with a quick follow through - which describes Greg's putting stroke in golf.

Fast forward to March 2019, the first PopStroke venue opened in Port St. Lucie, Florida. With our signature 36 holes of elevated mini-golf, a full-service bar and restaurant, an ice cream parlor, and an enclosed playground, PopStroke instantly became a beloved destination. Over time, we crafted our proprietary mobile app by adding another company Greg founded in 2019, Heard Technology, which allowed guests to keep score electronically, order drinks for course delivery, and place their restaurant orders from anywhere on the property.

Since then, our brand has grown significantly, with Tiger Woods joining as an investor in 2020, and TaylorMade Golf Company as an equipment partner and investor in 2023. Our footprint has expanded, bringing the PopStroke experience to over a dozen new cities, including Las Vegas, Dallas, Nashville, and Austin.
