Ghetto Golf in Digbeth, Birmingham

A sneak peak at the new Ghetto Golf indoor Crazy Golf course at The Custard Factory in Digbeth, Birmingham.


On a recent trip to Birmingham I had a couple of hours to kill before my train back to Stockport so I had a wander to The Custard Factory in Digbeth to see if I could see any sign of the new Ghetto Golf course that is being built there.

Looking around I couldn't see any signs or branding for the course and having had a good walk around the area I guessed it could only be in one location - a hall next to an arch in the railway viaduct - so I made my inquiries there. I was right as the brand new 18-hole indoor Crazy Golf is under construction inside.

It was great to meet Kip and Dan - the brains behind Ghetto Golf - and have a walk around the course. There are a LOT of things I wasn't expecting to see there and plenty of obstacles and holes designs I haven't seen before. Quite an achievement as the course visit was the 780th on my Crazy World of Minigolf Tour since 2006! It was nice to see there's going to be an indoor black light UV section of the layout too.

I can't give too much away, but if you like your minigolf to be quirky and enjoy a drink and a laugh you'll enjoy Ghetto Golf. The team at the course have been posting some teaser photos from the course on their Facebook page so do give it a like to see what's in store (quite literally in terms of the Blockbuster hole they've created!).

Ghetto Golf opens at The Custard Factory in Digbeth, Birmingham on Friday 13th October. Check out the Ghetto Golf website for more information, opening times, prices and booking details.

If you can't wait that long you can visit the original Ghetto Golf course at Cains Brewery in Liverpool. We need to find some time to get over to Liverpool for a round there soon.
