Holey Moley

So either you enjoy golf or you’ve got better things to do with your time. We, clearly, fall into the latter category (unless Happy Gilmore is involved). Except of course, when it comes to mini golf and particularly when there’s alcohol involved.

Excitingly, and in non-food related news for once, a boozy mini golf course is coming to the Coast and all your Saturday night activities can now merge into one.

Holey Moley (which is the greatest name ever) opens toward the end of March at the new Strike Bowling in Surfers and it’s going to be a real good time.

The go is this; it’s a mini golf course with a bar – called The Caddyshack – but there’s also a drink caddy that rolls around and cocktails are on offer along with the usual suspects (beer, wine etc.).

Iconic holes include ‘727 Evergreen Terrace’ and ‘The Dude’s Adobe’ which is set up like the Dude’s room from The Big Lebowski. Tee off across a rug, past an occasional table, and aim for the bar with a White Russian and some bowling trophies on top. Gaze at his signature cardigan as you bounce back towards the hole avoiding the bowling pins on the floor. Simple right. 

In case you needed a little bit more convincing, there’s also a karaoke room for when you’re all golfed out but full of cocktails and keen for a little more fun.

There’ll be a few other fun elements including a life-sized Simpsons couch (which is part of one of the holes) so you can live out your ultimate opening sequence (and create some sweet Insta content while you’re at it).

Inside there are two escape rooms which means if you get sick of losing you can “duck off to the bathroom” with your cocktail and never return. Wonder if you can get one of those for general life.

Holey Moley’s signature cocktail is the Sugar Caddy featuring sherbet and fairy floss because there’s nothing quite like getting buzzed on all the sugar and then whacking balls around with a stick.

Sounds like the best thing that’s ever happened.

Oh and you can play 9, 18 or 27 holes.

LOCATION: Strike Bowling, Circle on Cavill South Tower, 3200 Surfers Paradise Blvd, Surfers Paradise
