If someone told you to imagine a combination of pinball and golf, plenty of possibilities might pop into your head. If you're pondering how golf balls might fit inside pinball machines, wondering if you can mash buttons with a putter or conjuring up visions of flipper-filled greens, you can stop, however. Someone somewhere might've made all of the above a reality, but Netherworld's Pin Golf session has something else in mind.
Here, hopping between 18 of the venue's tables is just like stepping onto the course — each one has its own challenges, each ball counts as a stroke and emerging victorious under par is the aim. In that same spirit, hitting the mark first try is the event's equivalent of a hole-in-one, and wearing golf attire is so heartily encouraged, it'll be rewarded with a free drink.
That's what's on offer between August 25 and 27, aka a three-day playful pastime mashup. Head on down anytime on Friday, between 9am to 6pm on Saturday or from 8am to 1pm Sunday to tap, tap, tap your way to glory (or smash, smash, smash), and maybe even make the Sunday arvo finals. Tickets cost $30, with $500 cash, a trophy and a year's membership to the Netherworld Club House awarded to the winner.
