The iconic Observer building, in Cambridge Road, is to become the temporary venue for an indoor golf course.

The nine holes will all be themed around Hasting and its events and festivals including Jack in the Green, Pride, Bonfire and Fat Tuesday.

A team of cutting-edge street artists have been hard at work creating atmospheric backdrops for the attraction.

The idea came from local man Adam Daly who was inspired by the Ghetto Golf craze, which is indoor golf in a street art infused environment.

He said: “Wonder Golf is a Covid-19 compliant pop-up indoor crazy golf installation that will operate from December 4 – January 3 (closed on Mondays).

“Each of the holes are themed around local cultural events and heritage, with the holes being designed and produced with the assistance of local Hastings and St Leonards artists and creatives.

“The holes are themed around pirates, bonfire, America Ground, voodoo, beach huts, Source Park BMX, Pride, Jack in the Green, Fat Tuesday and also includes a surreal dystopian Christmas scene.

“It is a good use for the venue in between work to restore it.”

The venue will also have a bar, which will be run by Old Town pub The Albion.

The project will support Leisure and Learning Hastings, which helps to provide opportunities for local people.
