Is an epic, indoor mini-golf course, complete with a cocktail bar the one thing that’s been missing from your life? Ours too! And as it turns out, there’s one right in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD.
Melbourne has spoiled us once again with another unique experience. Located in Little Bourke St, Holey Moley is a gem waiting to be discovered – a fun night that’s just as much about the cocktails as it is about the golf!
Starting the night at The Caddyshack Bar, the wonderfully themed cocktails include the Happy Gilmoreo, and our personal favourite, Teeyoncé Holes. They tell us it’s not quite a Cosmo – but whatever it is, we’ll have another. Golf can be thirsty work!
Hole in One
After the bar, you’re primed and ready for some golfing action. The caddies tell us the game relies on luck as much as skill. It’s not just for those who know the difference between a pitching wedge and a sand wedge, and you certainly don’t need to be Greg ‘The Shark’ Norman to enjoy it. (He’s a famous Australian Golfer – we had to google him!). It’s a night of fun, crazy golf and cocktail bar, what more could you want – sink some putts and sink some drinks.
Ideal for a date or a night out with the lads – you might want to book ahead though. Walk-ins are welcome but it fills up fast. And with holes themed around The Wizard of Oz, Pacman, and Tetris, you’ll understand why. There’s even a Luna Park themed hole. Our favourite though is the Game of Thrones hole, complete with a throne made form golf clubs, and worth the admission alone.
There are 27 holes in total, each with their own twists and turns to keep it interesting and golfers can choose a 9, 18 or 27-hole game.
Par for the Course
All that putting can work up a serious appetite, but they’ve got us covered there too. Pizza is the order of the day and there’s a wide selection for us to sink our teeth into.
And at the end of all that, if the mini golf isn’t floating your boat, or if you’re feeling brave after one too many Teeyoncé Holes, there’s always karaoke! They’ve covered all the bases. Holey Moley is our new favourite spot, par none.
