Golf – But Not As You Know It!
I’m not a golfer and if you ask my friends about me and golf, they’d probably have a little snigger. I might have had a strop on a golf course once, because I couldn’t get my ball to go where I wanted it to… But that was a long time ago.
Anyway, golf these days isn’t just about hitting a ball around a green. There’s lots of ways to enjoy golf-related activities if you don’t have the patience of a saint.
This is one of my favourite days out in London. It’s a series of indoor crazy golf course made out of junk. It’s really good fun and the idea behind it is pretty wacky. You can have a full read of my review of junkyard golf.
This is pitched as the crazy golf club. They have two venues, one in the City and one in the West End. I’ve not been to either, but I love their website, so if that’s anything to go by, it would be fab. The City venue describes its self as a 1920s golf-club, where as the West End alternative says it’s has a more retro feel of seaside crazy golf. They both sound fab!
Outside of London, in Horley, Surrey, is the Let’s Golf simulator. Technically there’s actually three of them. You can book an experience and there will be a resident PGA golf pro on hand to talk you through it. I’ve had a go on the sister F1 racing simulator experience, Let’s Race, which is in the same building, and it was brilliant.
So I can’t complete this piece without giving a mention to the brilliant Congo Rapids crazy golf course in Woodbridge, Suffolk. It was by far one of the best crazy golf courses I’ve played on. They have paid a lot of attention to making it a nice experience for both kids and bigger kids (aka adults).
Now if you are going to take up serious golf, you may need some serious gear. I would check out the range from Mizuno golf. If you prefer a lighter touch on the golf side, my suggestions above should provide you with some ideas for a fun days out. Where else would you recommend?
