Ghetto Golf Newcastle has welcomed over 30,000 guests since its July opening.
The over 18s leisure venue has already made its mark in the toon following its first 12 weeks in operation, with bookings already filling up fast for the upcoming festive period.
Following a six-figure sum investment the crazy golf attraction, located in Hoults Yard, is now among the city’s most popular destinations with residents and tourists alike.
Owner of Ghetto Golf Kip Piper said: “We’re delighted to see that Ghetto Golf Newcastle has already gone down a storm since we opened up the doors earlier this summer with around 3,000 people visiting our Hoults Yard location each and every week. In less than three months, our team have poured over 24,000 cocktails and 580,000 holes have been played.
“Newcastle itself has become an incredibly important city to us personally and to the brand. Our active approach as business owners sees us spend a lot of time on location so we’ve been able to see our guests’ reactions first-hand. It’s great to see the diversity of the people that have visited us so far from couples to large parties and even corporates from the city and its surrounding areas who are looking for an alternative to their usual staff night out.”
With existing venues in Liverpool and Birmingham, Ghetto Golf’s Newcastle venue is the largest of the three spaces with capacity for 350 guests across its 18-hole course, bar and seating area.
Owner of Ghetto Golf Danny Bolger added: “We’ve enjoyed a fantastic start in Newcastle and we hope that this will long continue. Having had a particularly busy summer, we’re now looking forward to the return of many of the city’s students before turning our attention to the festive period.
“Before the year is out, we’re expecting to welcome over 90,000 guests with some already coming from as far as America and Asia to name a few. As with all of our Ghetto Golf locations, we are passionate about driving footfall to the area and supporting our local economy and we’re excited to be working so closely with the rest of the residents of Hoults Yard to put this part of Newcastle on the map. Already, the area has seen a 176% increase in footfall since July with 4,700 weekly visitors and we’re excited to see this number continue to grow.”
