Crazy golf cock­tail bar all set to swing into ac­tion


Coventry Telegraph - - NEWS - By ELIS SAND­FORD News Re­porter elis.sand­ford@reach­

THE open­ing date for Coven­try’s new­est at­trac­tion has been set - and it’s sooner than you might think.

Teez­ers, a brand new crazy golf and cock­tails venue in the city cen­tre will be open­ing its doors to keen golfers be­fore Christ­mas, with Novem­ber 30 an­nounced as the open­ing date.

And it has been re­vealed that a stag­ger­ing 3,500 pre-reg­is­tered on the Teez­ers web­site and they will be given the op­por­tu­nity to book their place at the Croft Road venue.

Bosses at the new ven­ture, lo­cated in the for­mer Club M night­club build­ing, have re­vealed that the am­bi­tious 18hole course is near­ing com­ple­tion.

Rob Hall, the mar­ket­ing man­ager at Teez­ers, said: “We looked up and down the coun­try at sim­i­lar golf venues to see what they of­fered. We looked at Ghetto Golf in Birm­ing­ham and the new course in Le­ices­ter.

“Our venue is very retro themed. Think late 80s and 90s.

“Ev­ery hole of­fers some­thing dif­fer­ent.

“We’ve been work­ing 24/7 to get it ready, and I’d say we’re about 90% com­pleted, which is well ahead of sched­ule.

“Our open­ing date is at the per­fect time, with Christ­mas par­ties and big groups com­ing.”

Many of the holes at the course are be­ing kept a se­cret for now but it has been con­firmed that a num­ber of pop cul­ture ref­er­ences will be mak­ing an ap­pear­ance.

One hole is themed around the set of leg­endary sit­com Friends, while an­other will be heav­ily in­spired by 1993 hit film Cool Run­nings. An­other will be cen­tred on the game show Bulls­eye, with the set be­ing re­con­structed, com­plete with an ap­pear­ance from Bully. It is ex­pected that the first few weeks will be ex­cep­tion­ally busy, and while cus­tomers are ad­vised to book in ad­vance there will be space for some walk-ins. How­ever, the own­ers have stressed that it is an 18-plus venue, with ID re­quired upon en­try. Rob said: “We’ve been heav­ily in­volved with the city cen­tre BID. “The city has been damp­ened in re­cent times, so we’re try­ing to put a bit of fun back into city cen­tre nightlife.” With the golf un­de­ni­ably a high­light, the cock­tails that are set to be on of­fer cer­tainly come a close sec­ond. Rob said: “We ac­tu­ally fi­nalised the drinks menu to­day. “You won’t get your se­ri­ous cock­tails like you might find in Samoan Joes, ours will be fun and filled with retro sweets, served in red cups.” The food on of­fer will come from street food spe­cial­ists Han­gry Moose.
