On a chilly fall Friday, I gathered 10 of my friends for a no-real-occasion outing. We just wanted to get together and hang since we don’t do that often enough with our busy schedules comprised of work, kids, etc. We had an absolute ball!
The manager, Clayton, was a gracious and handsome host as he showed us to our bay. Even the newbie golfers enjoyed shooting for the targets to get points and some of the guys got quite competitive. This was the perfect spot for a nice date (for a special occasion; it can be pricey during prime time), girls’ or guys’ night out or birthday party. Even a corporate social would be well suited for this venue.
The food is good and the drinks are great! We showed up at 7 and experienced the shift in atmosphere as the more professional happy hour feel gave way to an excellent DJ with more of a party atmosphere. My girls and I couldn’t keep our seats and got up to show off our moves! Did I mention the excellent drinks? I recommend the Tipsy Palmer, made with fresh brewed tea, Sweet Tea vodka, Citron vodka and lemon. I had a couple and they were potent, not too expensive and tasty. What’s more… my golfing skills actually improved as the night went on. Ha!
Serious golfers who brought their own clubs mixed with the many amateurs who were there just to have fun. We sat in one of the comfy bays with sofas that were perfect for lounging. Despite the chill in the air, the heaters kept us quite comfortable and we were even able to shed our jackets. My food recommendations include the cheese fries and pickle fries, a skinny fried pickle with ranch dipping sauce that tastes so yummy. The wings were solid (try the Mango Habanero and the Asian Sesame) and we LOVED the injectable donut holes for dessert. The Bavarian cream filling was the best! They even offer a brunch menu and y’all know how much I love brunch. I was even able to watch my beloved Florida State Seminoles play on the big screens in the upscale sports bar-like atmosphere.
My friend Jaqueline said she loved the concept and being there with a group, as opposed to mini-golf that is better for couples. “It’s sort of like bowling. You can suck or not play at all and still have a great time,” she said. Going with a group also helps defray the cost a bit. The midtown location is the second one in the Atlanta area and is very convenient to South Fulton. Y’all can get there in about 20 minutes or stop in on your way home from work to unwind. Please let them know South Fulton Lifestyle sent you! I can’t wait to go back!
