Ever wondered what would happen if you combined golf with booze and risqué sex toys? The answer is Ghetto Golf!
Following the success of their Newcastle, Liverpool and Birmingham sites, Ghetto Golf is expanding to Yorkshire. The new site will open in Kirkstall and despite recent protests from soon-to-be neighbours the Redeemed Christian Church of God, the council has officially granted the business their license to serve alcohol from 10am-1am. The church has said their objections are due to the amount of under 16s that visit their premises just next door.
Speaking of the backlash, a representative for Ghetto Golf has said:
“There is tongue in cheek adult humour – it was described to me as Benny Hill for the 2020s. There are also holes based on things like horror films and (1996 film) Trainspotting – it is intentionally to have an edge and to be funny.
“We don’t damage any children – we are a commercial company that operate properly.
“With the greatest of respect, if I am told that is what is happening I would object – but it couldn’t be further from the truth.”
The golfing chain is set to re-open the doors and inject some life into a disused warehouse on Walter Street in Kirkstall and will feature a bar, roof terrace and 18-hole crazy golf course.
The course is described as “seriously twisted”, and takes crazy golf to the extremes – with holes featuring obstacles such as dildos, mannequins in gimp masks and much, much more! Other branches have a variety of holes, from funny, to scary, to political – so you can expect a bit of a mixed bag!
For a little more context on the theme, Ghetto Golf describe their concept as “crazy golf, theatre, cocktails and DJ’s in an art infused environment that showcases the very best street art and their writers”. The bar is adult only, so unfortunately if you’re under 18 – you’re outta luck this time.
Rounds of golf cost just £10 per person and the new Leeds bar is expected to open October 2020, creating around 60 jobs for the local community.
