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. The food is delicious, a great mix of pizzas and share plates.

If you’re looking for an absolute BARGAIN, book into the Mosaic Hotel on Monday nights for Kids Eat Free AND a free 9 holes of Mini Golf!

Purchase 1 adult main meal to receive up to 2 free kids meals (Under 12) includes a soft drink and ice-cream + a 9 holes of Hey Caddy

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!

  • Fancy your next family friendly meal with a side of gangsta rap? We certainly don’t mind a cheeky burger or two, so when we heard the news that Milky Lane was coming to Adelaide our ears pricked up immediately and like many we waited eagerly for the doors to open. If you’ve been living under a rock and for some unknown reason are unfamiliar with Milky Lane (like seriously, where have you been?) then here’s all you need to know. Nestled in the vibrant heart of Rundle Street, Milky Lane is not just a burger joint; it's a celebration of hip hop and R&B culture serving stacked-to-the-max, grandiose burgers, and a dash of delicious over-the-top food. When you walk in the door, a two-level open space awaits with what can only be described as a star-studded wall adorned with murals of hip-hop royalty including Jay Z, 50 Cent, Biggie Smalls, Rihanna, and Kanye West. The ambiance is borderline edgy, with an aesthetic that's actually as cool as the carefully curated playlists, regular DJs, and live music that help to elevate the experience and really shape the Milky Lane brand identity.  Kids are well catered for with a colouring-in sheet and…

  • Ahhh mini golf, miniature golf, putt-putt, mini putt, 'the place where dad gets angry and over-competitive'. Known by many names and enjoyed by all (except parents of 6 year olds who think they are playing hockey and belts balls at a million miles an hour all over the place), this shrunken down version of golf is renowned the world over as the ideal place for families to set aside their differences and to come together in joyful and friendly competition for an hour or so. That is obviously a total lie, with this in fact being the area in which the competitive beasts within most kids is awoken, with the slightest 'bending' of the rules usually being loudly called out, resulting in threats of 'behave or there will be no mcflurry on the way home'. All that friendly family banter aside, we love us some mini golf. From the whacky course designs to fact all ages can have a go, there is so much to love about this as an ideal family friendly activity. You just need to curb that one person in your family who becomes a little bit too aggressive and competitive with club and ball in their…
