Victoria Park Golf – Putt Putt (Activity)

On a sunny Saturday in Brisbane, recovering from being sick for the last few days, what better way is there to spend your time than with friends?  What better way?  How about using basic putters to push little round balls into holes on a course of 18 wild, wacky and weird layout holes?

Tiger Woods, eat your heart out

Arriving at about 2pm in the afternoon, we were lucky enough to miss the lunch rush and smart enough to catch an Uber – parking is at a premium at the Victoria Park golf complex and if you are not lucky enough to snag one of the nearby parks outside the driving range/putt-putt, you are up for a 200-300m walk from the bulk parking on the grassy knoll.  Pricing (in my opinion) was very good – we paid $14 per person as a family of 6 (with a couple of multinational family additions being allowed to be included) which, for a few hours of hilarity and possible bragging rights, is well worth it.

More bum

My son learnt pretty early in the day that mini golf/putt-putt is more fun when you are being an idiot.  Admittedly, I taught him this wee tidbit of information through the use of my own brand of humour.  Bending at the waist and poking my butt backward as far as possible while implying that this technique is required for a successful putt, I was able to sink a hole in one on quite a difficult hole (it had a bridge and everyone that tried before me kept hitting the ball off the green (incurring the obligatory 1-stroke penalty),  From then onwards, my son would constantly remind the family member about to attempt their putt that they needed “more bum!!”.

More green than a Compton weed dealer

With a solid 18 holes of varying shapes, sizes and difficulty, there is something here for everyone.  Whether it be avoiding a bridge to take the easy layup, or trying to putt softly to avoid placing your precious ball ever so gently into an annoyingly damp fountain (much to the chagrin of bathing birds) or even avoiding a swinging log – there is enough here to keep the laughs flowing (even more so if someone from your group is constantly visiting the bar for liquid skill enablers) and the banter at it’s highest.  18 holes are laid out quite nicely in an amazingly compact area, as just as you think that you have completed all of the 9 holes, a bridge leading over the walkway to the Victoria Park Complex cafe takes to you to another area allowing additional golfing frivolity and hijinks.

With a driving range next door and a full golf course at your disposal, there is plenty to do at Victoria Park Golf Complex, the kids (little and big) definitely enjoyed the putt-putt though, and I am sure we will be back.
