The SANFL (South Australian National Football League) has partnered with Australia’s indoor golf entertainment brand X-Golf to open the franchise’s second – and biggest – SA venue located at West Lakes.
The obstacles of the Hey Caddy course will test the putters of families, friends and workmates as they vie for bragging rights in a fun-filled environment. X-Golf West Lakes will also offer the signature national X-Golf virtual competition ‘X-Golf League’, lessons from a resident golf pro, kids’ birthdays, school programs, corporate events and parties.
SANFL CEO Darren Chandler expects the X-Golf West Lakes will be a big hit with the golf-loving public, people just starting the game, or those looking for a unique venue to throw a party or hold a corporate function or team-building activity. “We are excited about welcoming the South Australian community to X-Golf West Lakes when it opens its doors in June,” Mr Chandler said.
Mr Chandler said the purchase of an X-Golf franchise aligned with SANFL’s strategic goal of identifying new business ventures that can generate revenue to be invested in football and help grow the game. He said SANFL already had very strong capabilities in hospitality and functions through the Mosaic Hotel, so extending this offering at the West Lakes precinct made sense.
“As a not-for-profit organisation, SANFL will re-invest revenue from X-Golf West Lakes into all levels of football, from talent pathways to SANFL Juniors and community football, inclusive, indigenous and multicultural programs,” he said. X-Golf West Lakes will employ up to 25 full-time and casual staff.
