Wholesome swinging: What are the best spots for indoor golf in London?

Let’s be honest, none of us is the next Tiger Woods. In fact, most of us are lucky if we can consistently hit the ball further than the tee. 

But hey, you don’t need to qualify for The Masters at the Augusta National to enjoy this sport! Heck, you don’t even need to be outdoors!

To prove it, our staff spent four weeks exploring the wonderfully weird world of London’s indoor golf, where the drinks are strong, and the scores are even higher! Join us in embracing the glorious absurdity of knocking a tiny white ball around in a giant room.

This is where your typical golf club gets flipped on its head, replaced by a vibrant, nightlife-fuelled atmosphere and a series of wildly imaginative mini-golf courses. 

Pick your poison: Dirk (a basement horror rave), Bozo (a creepy clown circus), Pablo (inspired by a jungle rave), or Gary (a scrapyard challenge). We loved the quirky themes and obstacles that range from salvaged junk to bizarre characters you have to dodge.

Besides the crazy golf itself, they’ve got epic cocktails with their unique flair fueling the fun. You’re never far from a tasty beverage at one of the many bars.  And for those who live for the ‘gram, the whole place is a riot of photo-worthy moments!
