What types of golf can I play in London?

If you’re pressed for time or just don’t fancy an 18-hole game, there are other forms of the great game that can be enjoyed with family and friends. These are just three of them, but there are plenty more.

  • Bingo, Bango, Bongo! - Score points at every possible turn, instead of waiting for the end of every hole. The first player to get onto the green gets a point, the player whose ball is closest to the pin when all the balls are on the green gets a point, and then the player who holes first earns a point.
  • ChaChaCha – A variant of fourball. The best ball counts on the first hole, the two on the second and three on the third. Keep it going!
  • Gruesomes – A twist on pairs matchplay that sees both players tee off. The opposing team gets to decide which ball is played next, and play alternates from there.

If you want some fresh air to swing your club through, there are Putt in the Park locations at Acton, Battersea or Wandsworth. It’s pitching for a classier golfing experience, with clubhouse cafes and well-kept greens to feast your eyes on.

On the other end of the spectrum, Junkyard Golf is a little reminiscent of 90s Laserquest. Grungy and covered in UV paint, the first iteration of this now nationwide phenomena was built out of actual junk. It’s set up in a brewery near Brick Lane, which means that you’ll also get a fair choice of drinks when you’re done putting.
