South Australia’s hottest new indoor golf and entertainment venue has swung into action.

The SANFL officially opened its doors on Friday to SA’s largest X-Golf and Hey Caddy franchise, located above SANFL’s Mosaic Hotel on Turner Drive at West Lakes.

X-Golf West Lakes features six cutting-edge X-Golf simulators – transporting players to some of the world’s best digital courses – an 18-hole Hey Caddy mini-golf course, full-service kitchen offering fan favourites such as pizza and sliders, and a fully licensed bar.

X-Golf West Lakes also offers the signature national X-Golf virtual competition ‘X-Golf League’, lessons from a resident golf pro, kids’ birthdays, school programs, corporate events and parties.

It is the second, and biggest, X-Golf and Hey Caddy venue in South Australia, created in the former ‘Magarey’ function room of Football Park.

SANFL CEO Darren Chandler said SANFL was excited to be opening the doors to X-Golf West Lakes, which will cater for golfers wanting to improve their game or for people just looking to have a good time with friends and family in a relaxed environment.

“X-Golf and Hey Caddy will offer exciting year-round entertainment for players of all ages and abilities, from weekend hackers to scratch golfers, beginners and everyone in between,” he said.

“We believe X-Golf West Lakes and Hey Caddy will also be a big hit for those looking for a casual meal and drink with friends or wanting a unique space for functions, corporate team building days, school holiday entertainment or birthday parties.

“The venue will be owned and managed by SANFL and the purchase of the X-Golf franchise aligns with our strategic goal of identifying ventures that can generate revenue to be re-invested into growing football in SA.

“With school holidays just around the corner we urge people to book early to be among the first to enjoy the X-Golf and Hey Caddy experience.”

X-Golf West Lakes will employ up to 25 full-time and casual staff.

SANFL is Australia’s first sporting organisation to open an X-Golf franchise.
