Great fun. Virtual golf with real clubs and balls. Reasonably good bar snacks
If this isn't the perfect place for guys to hang out, I don't know what is! The clubs they provide are top notch & the beer is tasty!

Pretty good mini-golf with a more adult drinking theme vibe to it. Would be really excellent with a larger group or for a work drinks event. Drinks prices are standard and have a great array of choice. I went with just two people and the courses are a bit short for what you pay for, taking less than 40 minutes to go round the 9 holes. Some holes are really creative and use the space to excellent effect but it is a shame they aren't all like that. As others have mentioned, if it is hot outside it will be really hot inside, it is not well ventilated or air conditioned. It is also loud and dark inside so depending on your mood may be a love/hate affair. Would recommend checking it out as a fun city activity, but if you are up for a challenging and complex mini-golf course this probably isn't the one.
Tried the Bruce course which was great fun albeit a bit too short for our taste, 8 of us took about 30 mins to finish the 9 hole course. Given its underground it's also a bit warm and stuffy down there, especially in this summer heatwave. They did have 2-3 fans across the course but more airflow is required. All in all nicely constructed but could do with some venting and I would suggest play at least 2 courses on the day if you don't want it to be a short evening.

Hi just had a lesson at DB golf very impressive lots of clear data but kept simple enough for me to understand i have been having lessons at a driving range for a year with no real improvement this is so much better Geoff Bull
Great facility in an excellent location and, most importantly, top quality coaches. Best place in London by far for golf coaching and practice.
