THEY SAY: A crazy golf style game in Hull. Our course is full of fun surprises with 9 challenging holes for all the family to enjoy.
WE SAY: Fab friendly venue, great fun, with golf and footgolf, plus a driving range.
MY son and I had an excellent morning together at Pirate Adventure Golf in Hull.
It was the week before he started “big school”, so I wanted a fun afternoon out for just Oliver and myself as a little treat before he is in the classroom five days a week.
Oliver loves mini-golf but his two-year-old sister Jasmine usually gets in his way, so on our Mummy and son day out, she had a play-date with Nanna and off we went to Pirate Adventure Golf.
Located within One Stop Golf in National Avenue, it’s the only crazy golf-style game currently open in Hull.
On arrival, Lee provided us with putters and balls, plus a scorecard and a pencil, and we got to work on the first hole – Captain’s Hook.
The nine-hole course is a lot of fun. It’s brightly coloured and imaginative for kids, including cannons, sharks, barrels, treasure and of course, pirates.
The course usually takes about 15 to 25 minutes to complete the nine holes, but you can opt to play a second round.
TIP: The venue recommends children should be at least five years old to play mini golf
It took us a little longer, as Oliver is only four and wanted to go around the course twice and also wanted to stop to look at everything.
He also hit his ball into the water a couple of times – I’m sure he did it so he could watch me fish it out!
We went in the morning when it was very quiet, but you can sail the pirate ship day or night, thanks to the floodlit facility.
You don’t have to book either, so if the weather is fine, you can decide to go the same day.
There’s no need to go home straight away either, as there’s plenty to do at One Stop Golf.
There’s a target golf range, a 19-bay floodlit range and a short-game area.
Whether you’re a serious golfer looking to improve your game or a bunch of friends looking for an exciting game there is, we have something for everyone.
TIP: If you’ve had a good game, hand your scorecard in for the chance to get on the leaderboard!
There’s also a function room, so it’s the perfect place to host a party.
Oliver noticed the nine-hole Foot Golf course as soon as we arrived, so we also had a go at that, which was also great fun.
He also enjoyed watching people on the driving range on the way out.
The facility offers the very best teaching professionals, facilities, equipment and a wealth of experience.
It caters for every level of golfer, from the junior novice to the elite player.
I can see us going back and, as Oliver gets older, I can see him really enjoying the target golf and driving range.
After our visit we then went to Pizza Hut on St Andrew’s Quay for lunch, followed by doughnuts at Krispy Kreme in St Stephen’s Shopping Centre and a quick visit to Treat Box sweet shop in Carr Lane, Hull city centre = perfect day out! #spoilt
