A huge amount of money was invested into the old Kent Town Hotel in Adelaide around 2001 to produce a pub with a great front bar, restaurant and indoor driving range. The Tuesday reggae night at the old Kent Town couldn’t be further away.
The front bar has highlights galore for the golfing enthusiast. All beer taps have been replaced with old persimmon driver heads and carvings from each hole at Augusta National are set into the bar. Large imposing statues of famous golfers (Greg Norman, Annika Sorenstam and others) also take their place at different points on the bar and there are plenty of pictures on the walls of famous golf courses. The pokies (if you really want to go near them) are set in a gophers hole out the back
The rooftop putting green and indoor driving range is what sets this place apart. The driving range has automatic tees that place the ball up ready for your next shot and there is no better way to spend an afternoon than to hit a bucket of balls and then grab a schooner or two in the pub.
Overall, for the golfing enthusiast the pub is a real gem. Pop in for a beer if you’re in Adelaide and need to work on the slice or elbow strength.
