Marble Falls (Burnet County)–A 42,062-square-foot complex featuring a miniature golf course, a 20-lane bowling alley and other forms of family-friendly recreation is planned for construction north of downtown Marble Falls.
Putters and Gutters Fun Center, based in Lampasas, announced earlier this year it plans to build a second location at 4300 U.S. Highway 281.
In addition to miniature golf and bowling, Putters and Gutters will include a 14,150-square-foot outdoor music performance space, a 7,700-square-foot roller skating rink, 3,500 square feet of arcade and gaming space, and a 1,500-square-foot kitchen area. The center will have more than 200 surface parking spaces.
Lampasas-based Roy Cockrell Enterprises, which developed the original Putters and Gutters, will oversee development of the Marble Falls location.
City Council on April 7 approved an economic development agreement between the city, Marble Falls Economic Development Corp. and the developer.
The $4 million project will create 85 jobs. According to the agreement, the city will pay Roy Cockrell Enterprises a $250,000 in incentives over five years.

In addition, the Marble Falls EDC will pay the developer $80,000 in incentives over five years, and a one-time payment of $75,000 upon receipt of the project, but after the developer obtains a certificate of occupancy.
Oklahoma City-based Cornerstone Architecture is the project designer. While the developer has not yet announced a construction delivery method, representatives for the developer indicated they hope to finish construction before the end of this year. VBX members may track this project using ID number: 2020-2DA6.
