Adventure golf comes to Hersham GC

Hersham Golf Club has added the Safari Adventure Golf to its 18-hole golf course in order to diversify its offering and make the destination more family-friendly. Safari Adventure Golf provides a series of putting challenges set against the backdrop of a host of typical safari features that are linked by landscaped pathways and sound effects.

A growling caged gorilla, a scary lion in mid roar, an elephant trumpeting water from its trunk, a giant cannibals’ cauldron, a jeep painted in zebra stripes and a light aircraft that has nose-dived into the ground are just some of the crazy creations that characterise the course.

To add to the atmosphere, participants must take a rope pulley ferry from one hole to another midway through their round whilst an imposing smoking volcano water feature and a towering cave create dramatic centrepieces in the brand new facility.

Mehmet Arkin, CEO of Hersham Golf Club said, “Safari Adventure Golf is a fun and interesting way of introducing kids to the game of golf and gives mums and dads the chance to entertain their kids whilst also doing something physically active. With the summer holidays here, this is an ideal place to come with the children, get them outdoors, and let them learn a new skill in a relaxed and leafy environment. With prices starting at just £7 for children under six for a round that takes an hour to an hour and a half to complete, the facility also offers great value for money.” More at: www.safariadventuregolf.com
