An indoor adventure golf complex with the capacity to hold up to 300 players at a time is teeing up to swing into Derby this spring.
The UK’s leading indoor adventure golf company, Paradise Island Adventure Golf, will open the doors to its next miniature golf leisure destination at intu Derby shopping centre this April, bringing a new experience to Derbyshire.
The 14,000 sq ft adventure facility will offer the ultimate mini-golf challenge with players able to choose from two bespoke 18-hole golf courses, each set amidst a tropical island paradise. The courses will be full of twists and turns, designed to send the ball and player on a rollercoaster ride, whilst putting even the most confident mini golfers to the test with a maze of obstacles and uneven terrain.
On the Shark Bay course, explorers will be treated to an adventurous game when they tee-off on an abandoned shipwreck and navigate through sea caves, filled with seaweed and giant octopus to the sound of waves crashing and wind blowing. Next they will arrive at the beach with pebbles and shells, before reaching castaway camp with turtles and shark fishing. Finally voyagers will trek along the jungle path with bamboo, palms and ferns, tropical plants and distant mountains before completing the journey in the tribal village and cannibal camp.
On the Mermaid Rock course, adventurers will start at the docks and travel through the monkey temple, full of vines and lush tropical plants. Monkey calls and sounds of jungle creatures will add an extra challenge for putting experts not used to hitting a ball in the middle of a rainforest. The expedition will continue through the lost lagoon and will finish in a mystical bazaar spice market full of fragrant fruits, carpets and lanterns, against a backdrop of rich sounds and smell.
Craig Nichol, Marketing Manager at Paradise Island Adventure Golf, said: “We’re really looking forward to introducing our indoor adventure golf concept to Derby this year. Adventure golf is fast becoming one of the most popular attractions on the UK leisure scene and there is currently nothing like this available in the area, so to be able to bring a new leisure experience is really exciting.
“This is crazy golf as you’ve never seen it before and offers an exciting and affordable day or night out for families, friends, couples and groups. It’s also a great place to host birthday parties for all ages and original corporate events.”
Paradise Island Adventure Golf is the UK’s leading indoor adventure golf operator, with the opening of Derby marking the company’s sixth location, following sites in Manchester, Sheffield, Cheshire, Glasgow and Livingston.
The Derby development will provide up to 10 new jobs and will be housed in a custom built unit at intu Derby in conjunction with other leisure activities coming to the centre.
The official opening date will be announced in March 2017. To keep up to date and to receive exclusive offers, sign-up to the Golf Club at www.paradiseislandgolf.com or visitwww.facebook.com/PIAGDerby or www.twitter.com/PIAGDerby.
