Third Holey Moley golf attraction opens in inner Sydney
Out-of-home entertainment innovator Funlab has opened its third Holey Moley Golf Club in the former Sandringham Hotel premises in the inner Sydney suburb of Newtown.
The former live music venue is now home to a new style of entertainment attraction that combines two themed mini-golf courses, a DJ and a cocktail bar.
Following on from Funlab’s successful Strike Bowling concept and the opening of other Holey Moley venues in Brisbane and Melbourne, the themed mini-golf courses sees players tee off from The Simpsons lounge room or Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory and play through a heritage inspired course.
Commenting on the news venue, Funlab Chief Executive Michael Schreiber told media “we wanted to create a fun experience, a lot of laughs, smiles, screams and a lot of photo opportunities.
“We wanted to play tribute to the Newtown Social Club so we have a stage dive hole and a recording studio and we will have a resident local DJ playing.
“Holey Moley is where you come to kick off your night, to pre game before you head out - it is not a late night venue.”
Responding to negative community sentiment following the closure of the music venue, Schreiber stated that the Holey Moley Golf Club wasn’t trying to replace the former venue.
Schreiber stated that the closure “was a commercial decision”, adding that “now it is a fun alternative venue.”
Cognisant of the history of the site, music remains a feature of the venue which will include weekend gigs, DJ sets, championing up-and-coming acts and potentially even featuring ‘battle of the bands’ style competitions.
A fourth Holey Moley attraction is set to open in Adelaide.
