Swingers Golf… it’s not what you think!

Theres a new craze hitting London! One word – GOLF  

Well ‘putting’ to be precise, or crazy golf as they like to refer to in the UK.

Anyway, after the launch of Junk Yard Golf in Shoreditch, who would have thought that hitting a ball around some fake grass in the middle of the city, would become so popular. 

Well it happened. 

Thanks to the lovely guys at Venue Search London, I was lucky enough to check out this place only a week after opening and im pretty sure the word was already spreading thick and fast, that you need to get yourself down here for a few after work swings.  

Also joining me was fellow Blogger Mina from Kings Road Rocks who was a virgin to crazy golf and well up for giving it a crack.

The venue itself is of a decent size and is tastefully decked out. It features two bespoke 9 hole courses – just to mix things up a little. Two levels, which includes an area to hire out for parties or events, a gin and fairway bar to keep the drinks flowing and impressively, some well known eateries such as those delicious burgers from Patty and bun, Pizza Pilgrams and kick ass kebabs from the guys at Le Bab. Par-fect.

Once we had taken a sneaky peak around the place, we had the opportunity  to tuck in and try out some attention grabbing pizzas as well as sipping on champagne cocktails – cant say no to that one!

Being a huge fan of music, I was equally impressed with funky house tracks being played by the DJ. In fact, I almost felt like I was in a club which really lifted the atmosphere as the night drifted on…..

After stuffing our faces, it was time was things to get a little more serious.. meaning taking part in a little competition around one of the courses called Lighthouse. I may have to mention that I used to play golf as a young pup and putting was, what I like to call, my speciality…. but hey who cares, its all for a bit of a laugh isn’t it! 

Depending on the time of day, you may find yourself in a small queue to start off but that just means that you get to fit in more quality drinking time; while you wait. I likey like.

You’ll then be handed a putter, golf ball and a score card to keep track of who is winning and who is loosing.

Only kidding ya. Im all about fair play here 🙂

If you’ve never attempted anything like this before, it does take a bit of getting used to, in particular the certain angles and how much power you need to put into your swing. Its all about precision here folks.

Oh and did I mention that they have dedicated waiters coming around on Ipad looking devices to take your drinks orders? Just in case you get thirsty after all that concentration. Brilliant idea and how caring!

So I guess you are wondering who won in the end? Well I don’t want to brag here… but yes it was me and seriously, so much fun I could have done it all over again 🙂

I really want to thank Ria Thomas from Venue Search London for giving me the opportunity to try Swingers out. I would most certainly come back here again and perhaps next time with a bunch of friends over the weekend for a right giggle. It is a perfect spot for after work drinkies or a special birthday shindig and in fact, if you are looking to book a group of you for work or even for yourself you can contact Ria who would be more than happy to help you out.
