Holey Mackerel, a mini-golf course with batting cages and arcade games (and more coming in the next year), opened in August at 5401 W. Layton Ave. in Greenfield, Wis., a nearby suburb of Milwaukee.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the name was repurposed from an idea one of the co-owners, Tripper Duval, had for a bar. He and a partner already operate the Lost Whale bar in Milwaukee and wanted to open a second bar with the common northern Wisconsin phrase “Holy Mackerel.” They added the “e” to make it golf themed.
The bar part of Holey Mackerel is coming soon; construction of that was ongoing as the facility first opened. Visit www.holeymackerelmke.com for more info.
