Mr Mulligans Space Golf
I’m a big fan of crazy golf and a visit to Mr Mulligans Space Golf has been on my to-do list for months.
Back in February avid readers will remember in my romancing the socks off Valentine’s Day post I put together a list of 12 dates I wanted to do with Steve between this year and next.
At number 12 was an “out there” experience at the brand new space golf in Newcastle, namely Mr Mulligans.
We spent a busy summer basking in the sunny rays of the heatwave exploring the North East so when my friend said she was coming to visit us in October I knew this was my chance to visit Mr Mulligans Space Golf.
As I mentioned in playing tour guide in my home town post after the disappointment on Saturday I pre-booked our tickets online that night for the Sunday to make sure we didn’t miss out.
I booked two games for the four of us (Laura is a recent student so used her discount for her ticket) and it came to £34.50 in total.
When we walked through the entrance it was like we were stepping into a spacecraft and I couldn’t resist some snaps in the golf cart.
There are lockers in the entrance which are so handy – especially as it had been bucketing down – so our wet coats and bags could be securely stored away until we were ready to leave.
Make sure you have a pound coin handy which you do get back when you’ve finished with the locker.
We were ticked off the pre-booked list, given a score card and our bright golf balls and made our way to the course.
The course is kitted out with stars, moon rocks, aliens and a bit of anything and everything space-related.
It’s quite dark inside but thankfully the golf balls glow in the dark and the holes are numbered so you know where you need to go next.
The space theme is magnified with special sound effects too which make give a more immersed experience.
We had a really good laugh on the two courses with Steve narrowly beating me on the last game.
I did manage a hole in one at the very last hole which I was pretty proud of!
Although we weren’t hungry (due to a big lunch of fish and chips at George’s Great British Kitchen) you can have food and drinks in the large bar area at Mr Mulligans which has an alcohol licence too.
Once we’d finished with our two games of crazy golf we handed our clubs back in, retrieved our now dry coats and bags from the lockers and made our way home.
Ironically this was when the sun finally decided to shine so the walk back to the car was nice.
I’d definitely recommend Mr Mulligans Space Golf and booking online to make sure you don’t miss out.
There were families with young children enjoying the crazy golf too so it’s a great afternoon out for all ages.
They also provide family tickets too as well as student discount. For booking and other information visit the website.
