Lincoln Cornhill Cove pop-up crazy golf and bar now open

Summer fun on the High Street

Cornhill Cove’s pop-up experience is now open in Lincoln, offering free crazy golf, a bar, and fun photo cutout boards.

The area officially opened at 11am on Friday, August 14 and from Saturday there will also be an ice cream vender and Lincoln Street Food Collective will rotate their various stalls at the site throughout the month.

Cornhill Cove will be open Sundays to Wednesday between 11am-7pm, and Thursdays to Saturday from 11am-11pm, until September 13.

Groups of six, with a maximum of four at a time, can use the larger than planned six-hole crazy golf course, and you can just turn up as there is no need to book.

The course was built bespoke and provided by Lincoln BIG and it includes a classic crazy golf windmill hole.

The bar will sell beers, ciders, spirits and mixers, as well as cocktails.

In addition, there are picnic benches to sit at and there is a giant deckchair to enjoy and photo opportunities with fun cardboard cutouts.

Co-organiser Ben Webb said: “We really believe we’ve created a safe fun environment for all ages to enjoy.

“Our daytimes will be family friendly and we are open late on the weekend for people to come sit back and enjoy a cocktail under the stars.”

Richard Baxter, Business Relationship Manager at Lincoln BIG, said: “We had the beach for several years and with COVID-19 we wanted something different, so instead of travelling to the coast to play crazy golf people can now come to Lincoln.

“It looks fantastic and people can create their own Instagram moments with our fun photo boards and enjoy a drink.”

Richard added that after the month-long experience finishes, and once the Cornhill kiosk is removed, the site will become an extra events space in the city.

He said that one of the events that will be returning later this year is the popular Thor’s Tipi Bar in November.
