For nights out with mates or dates - time to putt your best foot forward!

Who’d have thought that some of your best nights out would involve getting frustrated by your efforts to knock a small ball into a hole?! But, that’s the joy of crazy / mini golf, and Manchester has some crackin’ venues offering immersive, brilliantly fun mini golf experiences. Plus, crazy golf as an adult now comes with booze and quality food, making some of these places perfect for your dates, nights with mates or work blow outs. Here are the best indoor mini-golf venues in Manchester …

Junkyard Golf

There’s a reason that Junkyard Golf is a household name. With several successful venues all around the country, it’s clearly a winning formula, and there’s nowhere that reflects it better than their Manchester venue.

Junkyard Golf has three amazing courses, each with their own unique Junkyard twist. Pablo guides you through cage fighting bears, pirate speedboats and crashed narco planes, all housed in a polluted paradise. Gary, on the other hand, transports you back to the magic of the 90’s, with amazing tunes, a scrapyard slide and a UV garage room! If horror is more your thing, the Bozo course is here to impress – the creepiest show on earth is back on earth, with nine holes for you to face your fears, whether it be clowns, circus freaks or fairground creeps. They also serve incredible cocktails and tasty pizzas.
