The team at Ghetto Golf Newcastle has revealed a first glimpse of its hotly anticipated crazier-than crazy golf course in Hoults Yard ahead of its July launch.
Taking bookings now, the multi award-winning adults only leisure attraction promises to bring something totally unique to the Toon with a total of 18 themed golf holes. Over 5,000 golf balls have been ordered, 600 litres of base paint and 600 litres of spray paint used and 45 members of staff welcomed as the official countdown to opening begins.
Founder & Owner Kip Piper said: “We’ve had over 10,000 people visit our Newcastle website in the last few days and as we get even closer to our opening date, we can’t wait to start sharing more of what’s to come; including one of our favourite holes, the life-size teddy picker. Based on the retro arcade game, we’ve collected hundreds of soft toys to create a larger than life experience that we hope will bring back some nostalgic memories with a fun twist.
“As with our venues in Liverpool and Birmingham, we want to offer something that will shock, surprise and entertain all at once, which is why our choice of holes is unexpected and as varied as we could possibly make it. We pull our inspiration from popular culture and we’re not afraid to embrace the more risqué ideas that we guarantee won’t be for the faint-hearted.
“Our daring attitude and creative nature captures everything that Ghetto Golf stands for so it’s important that we get this across in our customer experience and hold nothing back for our Geordie following.”
Other holes are influenced by popular destinations and attractions, all of which have been given a true Ghetto Golf makeover to create the likes of an apocalyptic playground, a skate park and a neon art show. The brand, which is inspired and named after the origins of street art, has used a number of local artists in the project and as its most ambitious course to date, the space boasts the largest spray-painted rooms of all its venues.
Founder & Owner Danny Bolger added: “Ghetto Golf isn’t like any crazy golf you’ve ever seen before and this comes down to our bold attitude and desire to break away from tradition. It took input from the whole team to create the concept for this newest venture and a lot of manpower to make our vision a reality.
“Thanks to the hard work of our contractors and creative team, we are really excited to be able to open earlier than expected and bring bookings forward. It’s time to get ready to welcome in the best venue that Newcastle has ever seen.”
Bookings for Ghetto Golf Newcastle are now live with slots available from July 5, 2019.
