Holey. Moley. Those might be the first two words that pass through your gob smacked mind the first time you lay your little peepers on the Gold Coast’s new mini golf bar.
That’s right, Gold Coasters, we hope you have your inner child at the ready, because Holey Moley has officially opened its doors in Surfers Paradise’s Circle on Cavill, and we suggest you gather your crew, STAT!
The space is a Willy Wonka-style fun house that includes, not only an 18-hole novelty golf course where beverages are welcomed (no encouraged) to be sipped on course, there’s also a fully-equipped bar serving beer towers, cocktails and bar snacks; tenpin bowling, karaoke, a pool table, DJ spinning tunes and a mind-bending escape room. Yep, all your kidult dreams rolled into one colourfully noisy night out.
Half the fun is just exploring the course. There’s a 3D Pac-Man maze, The Simpsons’ own lounge room (an excellent selfie spot), a life-sized donkey with the puckered face of Donald Trump for an asshole, plus new four holes that are unique to the Gold Coast. Take for instance the royal throne and the impossible-to-hole-in-one Fresh Putts of Bel Air, or the demented clown head dubbed Crappy Gilmore. It’s bonkers, people. Bonkers.
Food-wise, you’ve got the basic food groups covered: peperoni pizza and hot chips. The casual menu makes for perfect boozin’ and putting snacks, from cheese Kransky hotdogs to loaded waffle fries and cheeky cocktails going by names such as Fresh as a Birdie, Sugar Caddy and Espresso Partini. That’s right, you can order an espresso martini with a side of golf! Yes, guys, they’re one of us.
Now if all that isn’t enough to have the crew on speed dial—behold the puns. From that ass with Trump’s face on his, well, ahem, ass, these guys are bringing the LOLs to Surfers Paradise’s after dark scene. One thing we will say is remember to look up, because the punny goodness is well and truly all around.
As mentioned, the fun doesn’t end at boozy-fuelled putt putt golf. Don some snazzy bowling shoes for tenpin (with a separated section of four lanes that can be privately hired for groups), an escape room that messes with your head while you solve riddles and puzzles (not for the folk with fear of confinement) and a karaoke room for busting out those Brittany impersonations.
Yep, Holey Moley looks set to become a Gold Coast late night staple. Remember, people, it’s all in the hips.
