Junkyard Golf Leeds | A Crazy Golf Review

Junkyard Golf in Leeds - A Crazy Golf Review - www.aimsysantics.co.uk

Looking for a fun day / night outing, then why not try the fairly new Junkyard Golf in Leeds? Here is my review from a night of crazy golf.

So, I haven’t written a review post in a while on Aimsy’s Antics, I think my last ones were Prosecco and Gin Festival and Almathea: A Greek Delight. I love checking out old and new places around my hometown of Leeds and last weekend, I was able to visit Junkyard Golf Club in Leeds. This was a part of my friend’s birthday celebrations, and it was a great night.

All views in this post are my own. This is not a sponsored post, I just want to share my experience of Junkyard Golf in Leeds.

Junkyard Golf

What is Junkyard Golf in Leeds I hear you ask! Well, it is basically a venue for crazy golf with a twist. There are three different courses to choose from; Pablo, Bozo and Gary. All have a different theme, with Pablo having a more jungle theme, Bozo being a clown and creepy fairground theme. The Gary course is basically a garage 90’s type of theme. All courses have items that have been reclaimed, salvaged and done up to match each course’s theme.
On a weekend the rules state that there are no under 18’s, with children under this only on Sundays to Thursdays before 6 p.m.

Junkyard Golf is located in The Light in Leeds and is over two-three floors. It opened in late September 2018 and has been a hit ever since. It is the fourth Junkyard Golf to open, with the other three being in London, Oxford and Manchester. A fifth has just opened in Liverpool too.
The London Junkyard Golf has an extra course; ‘Bruce’ which is like a movie mash-up. All the other sites have the same courses as the Leeds site, however, some of the decorations may be slightly different though.

All offer a range of drinks and snacks to enjoy whilst playing your rounds of golf. The cocktails are yummy, but more on them later!

My Time at Junkyard Golf, Leeds:

We booked for 5.30 p.m. completing the course within around one hour. Our course of choice was the ‘Gary’ course. If you have ever watched Only Fools and Horses, then you will get the connection of this with the name and some of the items (well at least I think there is!). We had pre-booked our slot and paid in advance. This is the requirement for visiting Junkyard Golf.

Arriving bang on 5.30p.m we thought we wouldn’t be able to grab a drink before; however, the place was pretty busy. We had to wait a short time to play so made our way to the bar that was on the Gary course. Once handed the items we needed; balls, golf clubs and a scorecard, we were on our way. Each person gets their own ball which is of a set colour so you can keep track of who is where on the course.

The ‘Gary’ Course:

The rules of the course say that you have around 8 shots each; if you go over then you have to move on accordingly. Of course the smaller your group the faster you should (hopefully) get through the course. There was a large group in front of us; so we had a little waiting around at times.

The course has 9 holes for you to go around, all with a scrapyard and motor theme. Some were a bit more difficult than others, with you needing to aim the ball through shoots. I imagine this would be quite difficult after a few cocktails! One hole (I think hole 2 or 3) has a slide for you to go down too, which is quite fun! I landed on my ball and it went into the hole. Result!

As you go around the course the last three holes to play are within a neon flashing lights area. 90’s music plays throughout, but this part really made me think of Top of the Pops. With it being dark and neon lights flashing, it can be quite difficult to see where to aim your ball. All good fun though!
We had a bit of a wait at this part because the three holes were within the one section.

Cocktails:

There are a few bars around the venue, with there being one main bar and smaller ones on each course. Various drinks are on offer with a decent list of cocktails to sample. Cocktails are £7.50 each and come with sweets of some kind as decoration. The only downside was the use of plastic straws!

The first cocktail was the ‘Ribena Turner’. Gin, watermelon, lemon, strawberry Ribena topped with lemonade and crushed ice. A large lollipop and gummy strawberries decorate the cocktail, with a paper umbrella. This was delicious, nice and fruity. Just how I like my cocktails.

The other cocktail I had was on their Easter specials which I think was called ‘Ultra Violet’ or something to that effect. This is another gin-based cocktail with violet liqueur and lemonade. Think palm of violets gin with lemonade and you have something similar to this cocktail. Another paper umbrella and sweets adorn the top of this. Yummy!

My Thoughts on Junkyard Golf:

I thought it was a brilliant start to our night out and would highly recommend a visit. I loved the theme of the course we played, so many photo opportunities too.
It would be fab if you were able to play all as a bundle, as I would love to try them all! You could really make a night of it then.
The staff were super friendly and helpful, explaining how the courses worked.

Just a tip, make sure you go to the toilet before playing the course, as there is no way out of the course once you have started. You don’t want to ruin your game!
There is also a great photo booth where you can make your own Junkyard gif!

  2. I have wanted to try the one in East London for so long but I have heard mixed reviews about them (mainly on the wait) but I have to say I think that it might be worth it…if for nothing else but the cocktails…

    1. I think it can depend on the time, it was quite busy when we were there. I know someone who went on a different day and earlier in the afternoon and they flew through the course. Deffo worth a try!
