What do you get when you mix a kitsch mini-golf course and an electrifying bar? You get one hell of a mini-golf experience in the form of Holey Moley. If you haven’t heard of Holey Moley, then you must be living under a rock as it’s the latest and greatest putting green taking Melbourne (and many other locations in Oz) by storm!
Upon entry, you’ll be greeted with punny neon signs adorning the walls of an empty swimming pool, slot-machines hole, true winners’ cocktails that are literally trophy-sized, a monopoly-themed hole and much more madness. You can make your way round the 18-hole course or do a quickie and take on the 9-holes.
Now, let’s talk cocktails. Sip to your heart's content on The Duck, Duck, Joose, served with rubber duckies floating in a lil’ bathtub. Or, why not sample The Shark Bite, served in a shark head cup. Yup, they’re a creative bunch, those Holey Moley folks.
Try Holey Moley at the following locations in Melbourne: Crown Metropol or Melbourne CBD. Travelling to other parts of Australia? You’ll find Holey Moley at various locations dotted around NSW, QLD, SA, and WA.
And the best bit?! YHA members can enjoy a game of 9 holes for just $10.
If golf isn’t your thing and you’re more partial to some bowling, then when not hit up Strike Bowling, where YHA members can get one game of bowlin' for $10. Following on from the Holey Moley’s unique vibes, Strike bowling is anything but your average tenpin bowling alley, so head down and experience it for yourself.
Should the heat or rain get too much in Melbourne (hello 4 seasons in one day!) we think this is pretty much the best way to spend a fun-filled day indoors.
