NY Mag says:

Trash-blown Grand Street is an epic golf-cart ride away from the eighteen holes your grandfather plays, but Bushwick Country Club actually does have a putt-putt course to its credit. (In true hipster fashion, the inevitable windmill is constructed from—what else?—PBR cans.) The rest of this ambitious, off-kilter dive is all pinup art and red-velour airplane seats. A slushie machine marries childhood nostalgia to adult alcoholism with Jim Beam-and-Coke slurpees and frozen sweet tea vodka that in turn have led to more than one regretted 3am make-out in the photo booth. Beyond the gimmickry (or perhaps the greatest gimmick of all), this is an actual country club. Applicants need two willing sponsors; the dues-free membership promises drink discounts and access to the aforementioned links. Non-members also welcome.

Time Out say

John Roberts, owner of Bushwick Country Club, believes that “miniature golf and drinking go great together,” so he added a nine-hole course out back. Find your inner John Daly by putting through a Pabst Blue Ribbon windmill or drilling a ball into a robot’s belly. There’s never a wait to play, and non-country club members can afford the greens fee: Everything but the beer is free.

Comments

  1. The happy hour is 2 for 1 tap beer, wine & well cocktails, not pitchers. They have free cheetos & slim jims for sale, so in a way they do have “food”.

    This place was great when we first moved here. Almost. 8 or so years ago. We even remember meeting the owner who was working beyond to make this work and it was great to see pioneering on grand st. Have gone off over the years, but was there earlier this year and experienced a very negative , unforgettable evening. Not sure if the bartenders felt there had a specific racial demographic since they seemed quite ignorant and rude. Based off the owner Again who we meet this would not seem be plausible, but his employees I beg to differ. We have not been there since,and really taken back how the employees perception and quick assumption was resulting in racial profiling that night. in case you were wondering I am Hispanic and my spouse is Irish/ Filipino and our friends .Go figure
