The biggest, baddest and best 18 hole, 18+, crazy golf bar

Leicester

Caddyshackers describes itself as the ‘biggest, baddest, best and only 18 hole, 18+, crazy golf bar in the heart of Leicester’. It’s pretty unbelievable that the venue was the former Dunelm store and a storage facility before Concorde BGW turned it into a mind-boggling 18-hole golf course.

Step through its tastefully graffitied entrance into a chilled out and fun alternative night out. Head straight to the golf station to collect your balls and clubs and follow the UV lights to your first challenge. 

All 18 holes were built with unique themes, first and foremost we commemorated the owners of the site, Leicestershire-based pub company Steamin’ Billy with a pub themed course.

Another course pays homage to Leicester City Football Club with goal posts on a green pitch surrounded by manikins dressed in the LCFC kit and some epic graffiti depicting fans cheering on the players, or in this case the crazy golf players. 

Other quirky obstacles use stripped down car bodies, stuffed foxes, skeletons and sandcastles to create their themes. One even uses an actual skip to create a construction themed hole with a clever golf twist. 

Concorde BGW reused and recycled materials such as benches, toilets, stools, desks, tyres, pallets, pipes and trucks. We used reclaimed tables and chairs around each hole creating plenty of space to enjoy beverages in-between putts. The remaining space was turned into an arcade-style games area where you can enjoy other kooky activities. 

Golf this crazy is thirsty work so Concorde BGW built the all-important bar areas serving cocktails, craft beers and hangover free mocktails. Building a bar servery has allowed Caddyshackers to provide a selection of street food and pizza and added a large seating area to the 150-cover site.

The ideal clientele is uncountably groups who want something original to do instead of the same tedious night out. Caddyshackers can be hired privately for up to 200 golfers. It’s a great concept and it’s something new to do in Leicester, which can’t be a bad thing.

Steamin Billy have also planned to open East Street Lanes bowling alley in the same building later this year.
