Junkyard Golf Club expands into Newcastle


Junkyard Golf Club, TicketCo’s first UK-based client, is opening a new venue in Newcastle fuelling its continued growth.

The activity-based venue business has been sweeping the nation since 2015 by providing an indoor alternative to crazy golf combined with banging music and cocktails. Its latest venue has three nine-hole crazy golf courses, complete with scrapyard slides, wrecked car parts, circus ‘freaks’ and jungle bathtubs.

Multiple venues

Since launching a pop-up in Manchester Junkyard Golf Club has exploded and now has venues in cities including London, Manchester, Oxford, Liverpool and Leeds.

Junkyard Golf Club partnered with TicketCo in 2017 to provide the venues with bespoke time-slot digital booking and payment technology. It helped Junkyard Golf Club manage time slots easier, sell tickets faster and make it easier for customers to buy tickets.

Sophie-Larissa Houghton, PR and Events Manager of Junkyard Golf Club, said: “Newcastle tickets just went on sale, and we are so excited. We are one step closer to opening our doors and welcoming the people of Northeast to party with us for crazy golf, cocktails and epic beats. We have some big surprises in store for our Newcastle launch so make sure you connect with our social media channels to be in with a chance of winning some epic prizes.”

Going to Event Tech Live

Junkyard Golf Club has also partnered with TicketCo to supply a one-off hole at its stand at Event Tech Live. Event Tech Live is a two-day celebration of the latest technology which supports the events industry.

TicketCo will be represented by David Kenny, Vice President of Greenfield Sales, at the event to showcase the power of hybrid technology to event organisers. Every visitor who registers a hole-in-one at Junkyard Golf Club’s pop-up course will be entitled to free admission at any of its venues in the UK.

Continued innovation

David said: “It’s fantastic to see Junkyard Golf Club flying and launching in the Northeast. Junkyard Golf Club was our first UK partnership and it’s been an amazing journey together innovating, expanding and making a big impact on the events industry.”

TicketCo is a cloud-based ticketing company, with offices in multiple territories. The platform’s ticketing solution provides mobile-first cashless technology. Its online broadcasting service, TicketCo Media Services, is available on any device and provides a secure paywall.
