Travel the World with New Mini Golf Experience
Redcliffe locals Dr Anthony Mahler and Olga Mahler are taking miniature golf to the next level as the first franchisees of an exciting new venue.

Golf simulation company X-Golf launched Hey Caddy, an 18-hole indoor putt putt experience, at North Lakes in March.

Dr Mahler, a self-confessed ‘golf tragic’, said he had noticed a significant lack of places to practice his favourite sport within his local region.

“The feedback from guests so far is very much aligned with this feeling, that our community was in serious need of a venue like this, and we’re so happy to finally bring it to life,” Dr Mahler said.

“This is the first ever Hey Caddy franchise in Australia and behind it are the experts at X-Golf, a global powerhouse in golf simulation technology.”

Hey Caddy gives mini-golf enthusiasts the chance to practice their swing at destination-themed locations including Coachella, Bora Bora, Cappadocia, Melbourne’s Hosier Lane, Mars, the Great Wall of China, Nevada’s Area 51, and Mexico’s Day of the Dead.

“The murals have been created by Brisbane artist Lee ‘LINZ’ Harden, which are definitely a showstopper,” Dr Mahler said. “No detail has been left to chance, with cocktails themed to suit each hole and delicious menu items suitable for a whole range of tastes and preferences. My favourite feature about Hey Caddy is that there’s somewhere to put your drink on every hole – design genius.”

Dr Mahler was a skin cancer doctor and general practitioner at Clontarf Bridge Medical Centre until his retirement. He now dedicates his time to Hey Caddy, as well as supporting his wife, Olga with her project Help Us to Shelter Ukraine. The couple have recently spent time in Poland assisting blind refugees with food and accommodation and helping them relocate to nearby safe havens.

Dr Mahler said spending time at unique venues like Hey Caddy was a great way for people to create lasting memories, build confidence, create emotional bonds and improve communication skills. 

“And let’s not forget about the laughter and togetherness that it forms – we’ve never seen a guest leave Hey Caddy without a big smile on their face!” he said.
