It is no secret we are huge fans of X Golf, have been for years. Adelaide’s premiere golf simulator venue was the perfect spot for a hit of indoor golf whilst enjoying a feed and your fave beverage (cough *pirate life* cough). With the partnership with Hey Caddy a few years back adding everyone’s favourite family activity, mini golf, X Golf has quickly turned into an all round awesome family venue!
When we heard a massive new addition to the club was opening at West Lakes (Just opposite Westfield and above the Mosaic Hotel) we couldn’t wait to check it out…..and boy were we in for a treat!
Firstly, it is enormous. Sporting a full 18 hole mini golf course thanks to Hey Caddy, as mini golf fanciers we can genuinely say this is the best course in the state. Epic holes that are super fun to play, all sporting a theme or location, which are challenging enough for the serious mini golfers but also easy for the whole fam to have a hit. We took our sport loving 2 year old (who loves to grab a little club and have a bash) who was able to easily use the smallest of the clubs and have a ball with the big kids.
Moving on to the golf sim and this is where the bigger kids and mum and dad come into play. Our 2yo had a little hit for fun but its really designed for the 6 and above, with fantastic fun little kid friendly par 3 (short holes for the golf novice) holes and you can adjust the settings to allow more forgiveness for the on screen shots (definitely needed). We played for about an hour on both the mini golf and an hour on the golf sim. This will set back a family of 4 about $78 for the mini golf and $65 for the golf sim hire, but we found this was plenty of time to get our golf on!
The fully licenced bar is a welcome sight and the food is well worth a shot, but what makes this venue so good is the versatility, which can comfortably host everything from kids parties through to school holiday groups and for the adults, the bucks nights and 50th bdays. Name your event and they can cater here with function rooms and plenty of space to have a memorable time.
This is absolutely one of our fave spots and we cannot wait to head back to reclaim our title as mini golf champions over those pesky kids!
