Fancy doing something new and fun, without having to face the cold weather outside? If the answer is yes, then Junkyard Golf Club is just the thing for you. Secretly tucked in the corner of Brick Lane, once you know it is there, you will never be able to walk past it again.
Junkyard Golf club is is a new indoor crazy golf club with a twist. It is full of adventurous and creative golf courses, or to put it another way, as the website itself boasts, it is the: ‘Home of crazy golf, bad puns and booze.’ What more could you wish for?
As soon as you enter, there is an upbeat party vibe that echoes throughout, and which instantly seeps into your bones, warming you up. There are four different courses to choose from, each with nine ingeniously designed holes. On offer are: BOZO- a dark and dodgy fairground; PABLO- full of mystery and the unknown, you have to hit your way through a polluted paradise; GARY- designed to mirror a scrapyard, and last but not least: BRUCE- all holes are based on legendary movies and are a real favourite amongst players. Amusing and wacky props adorn each set and the wackiness extends from course to course- all of whose names are derived from puns! So not only is the club a physical test for players’ sporting ability, but also their mental ability as layers must unpick each pun…
Each hole is designed to offer a completely different game to players who have to hit their ball amid a maze of slides, pipes and bits of everyday junk obstructing their path (think Happy Gilmore). Each player receives their own brightly coloured golf ball (I must confess I had to stop myself taking mine home!) which makes it easier not to confuse your ball with somebody else’s. The course takes around an hour to complete, with a bar and restaurant on site to visit after- food and drink vouchers can be purchased for groups beforehand.
The course does get busy at times but you are amused right till the end of your session. Overall, with a lively atmosphere and music playing overhead, it is a manic yet utterly fun experience!
