For a new and exciting twist to the week we added a sport to our usual repertoire of eating and drinking. Ok, saying sport is pushing it a little bit, but when we hit up Adelaide’s hottest new venue Holey Moley, we had to balance putters and golf balls with our pizza and drinks.
Featuring 18 themed putt putt golf holes, a bar and DJ spinning your favourite tunes, Holey Moley is a fantastic night out. Each hole has a different theme; the Simpsons Couch and Game of Thrones iron “putter” throne were crowd favourites. Each hole has its own challenges such as a warped floor, tunnels or obstacles in your path.
Scoring is super easy; just download the Holey Moley app and add your scores as you go. Then with one touch you can upload your results to Facebook to gloat about your win!
Obviously you need a drink in hand to party and putt the night away- there is a fantastic cocktail list including Espresso Martini, Grapefruit Mimosa, Cucumber Collins and a Kaffir Lime Margarita. Our favourite drink of the night was the Sugar Caddy, a delightful mix of Vodka, Cointreau, raspberries, cranberry and fresh lemon juice topped with lemonade. Garnished with a ‘candy kebab’ it was tangy, sweet and delicious.
Wherever we go there must be food and Holey Moley took care of this with a range of pizzas. The pizzas are wood fired so they have a crispy base and with loads of stringy melted mozzarella cheese they hit the spot to perfection. Toppings include Hawaiian, Pepperoni and Tomato, olive and basil pesto, there’s something for everyone.
To be honest, our scores were shameful and in the end we hit up the bar to do what we do best. We had a great night, full of laughs at our terrible putting skills and are determined to go back and better our scores.
It adds so much to a night out to have something to do alongside the essential drinking and dancing, so Holey Moley is the perfect place to gather with family or friends. Keep this one in mind for birthdays, hens/bucks or corporate event. Kids are welcome but have to be out by 5pm. We strongly suggest making bookings as it is turning out to be super popular, especially on weekends.
