Ghetto Golf: New Crazy Golf in Newcastle upon Tyne

Ghetto Golf Newcastle - tunnel of love

Are you looking for an affordable, fun night out in Newcastle upon Tyne that's a bit different from a Friday night down at the pub? I think I've got just what you are looking for. Think crazy golf, food, drink, ridiculous banter, and you've got a vague idea of what you are letting yourself in for...

Ghetto Golf: Crazy Golf for Adults

Ghetto Golf opened its doors last month and I was grateful to be invited down to the launch party to play a round of golf and enjoy some complimentary food and drinks.

I didn't really know what to expect at all. I am a huge lover of crazy golf and thought this might be similar to what I've played before but with a few drinks chucked in. It ended up being completely different to anything I've experienced before, and just the fresh experience that Newcastle needs. I'm telling you, if you visit this place, leave any expectations at the front door because I guarantee it isn't like any other crazy golf you've played before.

I am torn between sharing the huge number of photos on my camera roll, but it's also one of those places where part of the fun is the pure shock and delight of discovering what each hole has to offer!

Ghetto Golf: The Visuals

Every hole has been well thought out with Newcastle references all over the place. It's really hard to pick a favourite but I loved the Jeremy Kyle hole complete with a stage to get your selfies on. The whole place has definitely been well planned for those fellow Instagram addicts, and there are countless places to snap amazing photos of your night!

Other favourites were the hole designed to look like the Crown Posada, one of Newcastle's most traditional and well-known pubs, and a particularly gruesome hole which looked like a men's toilet, complete with graffiti adorning the walls.

I couldn't help but get seriously excited by the hole pictured below, designed to look like a giant grab machine with all the cuddly toys 6-year-old me would've wanted.

I could share photos for days but the lighting was too dim to do justice to all of the creativity that has gone into the venue, so it's best to visit for yourself. I'd love to be a fly on the wall to see people's faces when they discover each hole for the first time.

Ghetto Golf: Food and Drink

You'd be forgiven for expecting any food and drink on offer to be nice, but maybe nothing amazing as the selling point is the golf. If I tell you I'd definitely go back just for the food alone then that gives you an idea of just how good the food from Apocalypse Cow was!

I tried the pulled pork burger (£8) and it was a plate of absolute juicy delicious-ness. Highly recommended. I also pinched a few of the cheese and bacon burger fries (£6.75) which were fantastic as well.

The best way to describe the food is luxury 'junk food', similar to what you might find in an American diner. The quality was exceptional and I am sure that anything on the menu would be fantastic, as I have seen nothing but glowing feedback from other bloggers. It is exactly the kind of food I crave on a Friday night after a long week, so this would be my ideal time to book in.

Throughout the course of the night it's safe to say I tried quite a few of the cocktails on offer (all purely for the blog of course, I'm dedicated!)  Every single cocktail was delicious and of really high quality. 

A special mention goes to the bar staff who offered us extra drinks as we made our way round the course and had great knowledge of the drinks on offer. Fear not, if you run dry there is a bar situated halfway round so you can remain topped up.

Ghetto Golf: Prices and Booking

It is a bargain price of £10 per person for a game of 18-hole crazy golf at Ghetto Golf Newcastle, which is great considering the high quality of the course. Even when you add food and drink to this price, it still remains a great affordable option for a date or night out with friends. 

Ghetto Golf is a strictly 18 plus venue and they have a challenge 25 policy, so remember your ID if you are lucky enough to look that young! With holes like this one, and another themed around Amsterdam's famous red light district, you can see straight away why it is a strictly adults-only venue...

Whilst you can pay on the door, I can tell this is going to be a seriously popular venue so book here to avoid disappointment. I had food before playing golf but I think next time I would switch this order, as the food is just so good and filling. I think it would be nice to head home in a food coma after your meal!

All that is left to say is thank you so much to Ghetto Golf for hosting me at the launch party, and for Stuart from the blog Go Eat Do who made a fantastic crazy golf buddy for the evening. Check out Stuart's blog for lots of travel, food and Newcastle inspiration.
