When Holey Moley set up shop in a former Fortitude Valley church two years back, it was the hangout we didn't know we needed. Who can say no to sinking a few putts while navigating a pop culture-themed mini-golf course and drinking plenty of pints and cocktails, after all? Since 2016, the chain has spread around the country, opening multiple venues in Sydney, and expanding its greens to Melbourne and Adelaide as well. Now it's back where it all started, spreading the love around southeast Queensland.
Since late March, the lower portion of the state is home to not one, not two, but three Holey Moleys, with new bars opening in Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast and Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast. Both feature 18 holes of tap, tap, tap-tastic fun, as well as karaoke setups so that you can belt out a few tunes when you're not on the turf. And, they're each adjacent to Strike Bowling, so you can really ramp up the boozy, sporty shenanigans.
Jaws, dinosaurs, Kanye, Tetris, The Simpsons and The Big Lebowski are just some of themes on offer, if you're wondering why you should abandon the other putt putt courses on both coasts — other than the drinking part of the equation, of course. As always, you'll find Caddyshack bars on the premises, serving up suitably named tipples such as the Espresso Partini (with coffee liqueur, Smirnoff vodka and Little Drippa espresso) and the Fresh As A Birdie (Don Julio Blanco tequila, fresh mint, lime juice and agave topped with ginger beer).
