The adult-only venue near Aldgate has two nine-hole challenges – The Windmill and Lighthouse courses – flanked by five cocktail bars, a club house with Tanqueray No. 10 gin terrace, food from Pizza Pilgrims, PattyandBun and Le Bab to keep golfers fuelled for their rounds. There’s also a private dining room.
Greenwich brewery Meantime has installed three 1,000 litre beer tanks at the top of the Lighthouse course to help slake visitors’ thirst.
For those of a competitive bent, there is also a leaderboard linked to a Swingers scorecard app so players can keep track of their rivals.
