Ghetto Golf in Newcastle | Is it Worth It?
I visited Ghetto Golf in Newcastle, the North East’s newest leisure venue just before it opened to the public, and can confirm that it is worth the trip there. I can also firmly say that Ghetto Golf puts the crazy in crazy golf.
Opened just last month to much anticipation, from what I’ve seen on social media, half of Newcastle has already been!
Hidden away in trendy Hoult’s Yard in the regenerating area of Byker (of Byker Grove fame), Ghetto Golf in Newcastle is an indoor 18-hole mini golf for the 18+. It’s strictly for adults only and you will see why as soon as you walk in.
Bring your sense of humour but leave the kids at home for this one.
Full of sass, quirk and attitude from the very first moment you step inside – add the noise of uncensored, explicit songs playing at full blast to add to the fun – you’ll soon realise it isn’t for those who are easily-offended.
As well as the participation of mini golf itself, part of the fun is the Instagrammable photo opportunities. It’s a smart move, wish other businesses would evolve in the same way. I won’t spoilt it for those who are planning to visit but girls, bring your IG husband (!) with you because every single part of the venue is a photo op 😂
Notable sights (which is actually all of them!) includes the red light district, the teddy bear arcade game, the 70s living room, the cannabis plant shed, a giant swan pedalo, a spooky graveyard, a Jeremy Kyle set and lots of neon graffiti and old-school references that take you back to the 90s. These are all created by local artists.
What are the Ghetto Golf prices?
The cost for one round of the 18-hole course at Ghetto Golf is £10 per person. It’s advisable to book early via the website or by telephone. You’ll have so much fun, trust me. Grab your pals and be prepared for surprises around every corner.
Wait! There’s more?!
Not only is it a crazy golf venue, there’s also a funky bar and delicious food too. The food is BBQ street food served by Apocalypse Cow ranging from £3.50-£8.
On the menu, expect loaded fries, burgers (the kind served in a brioche bun), jumbo wings, fried mac & cheese bites, halloumi fries, and decadent cheesecakes.
I didn’t get to try it when I visited because the kitchen wasn’t open at the time, but I know there’s no beige food in sight.
Book now to reserve your round at Ghetto Golf in Newcastle. Enjoy!
