Ghetto Golf, Liverpool
Coming very soon is Ghetto Golf at the Cairns Brewery, Baltic Triangle, Liverpool. The new venue is billed as ‘Crazy Golf, Cocktails, DJ’s & Street Food set in a Ghetto Wonderland.’ The brewery has had a creative makeover featuring a blend of graffiti and skate punk humour. We particularly like the industrial silo turned into a rude Minion.
As new minigolf courses go, this one is pretty cool. Abandoned breweries are generous on space, so Ghetto Golf is a full 18-hole course and by all accounts it’s pretty bonkers. There’s going to be a DJ suspended above the minigolfers in a treehouse, a PacMan room dedicated to vintage video games, and every available surface is covered in spray paint graffiti. There are 3 bars, hot dogs, cocktails and a cool vibe.
Ghetto Golf say on their Facebook page: “We’re a few mates who wanted to create an experience and a venue that people wouldn’t forget.
We’ve carried out every aspect of work on the abandoned brewery ourselves. It’s been hard, but we’ve loved every second!!”
Ghetto Golf should be opening in the next two or three weeks or when they run out of spray paint, whichever comes first. For more details check their Facebook page.
Approval for Crazy Golf course in York
Council planners have recommended approval for a new crazy golf course next to York’s Designer Outlet. It has been up before the planners because it will mean the loss of 26 parking spaces at the Designer Outlet, but if given the final green light it should add more to the area than it takes away. We would say that, being minigolf freaks.
Designs for the course’s 12 holes include ones based on York landmarks like the Bar walls, St Mary’s Abbey, Clifford’s Tower and a Viking longboat. Obstacles will include a 1.4 metre high Viking helmet, a set of stocks and a hut resembling one of the buildings on The Shambles.
We’ll keep you posted here on our blog about any more new minigolf courses we hear about!
