Looking for ideas to fill your time this week? Events aren’t the only form of entertainment on weekends – creativity can take the form of getting crafty or trying unusual pursuits.
Here are five activities to solve your dilemma on what to do this weekend. From pottery sessions to themed mini golf, check out THG’s selection:
1. Mini Golf
Unique times call for unique forms of entertainment, as we look for ways to sate our wanderlust brought on by the lack of travel. Why not redirect your energy to a game of mini golf? Holey Moley Golf Club offers 9, 18 and 27 hole options for you to try your hand, for a quirky afternoon that’s sure to be one for the memories.
Located at Clarke Quay, each game is set against themed backdrops – perfect for photobugs looking for more opportunities for the ‘gram. Cool off over post-game drinks and snacks at their indoor bar.
