If you’re looking for some good value family fun then go check out Newbury Adventure Golf. I’ve got 3 boys aged 5, 9 and 11 and it was great to find something that all three could enjoy, even if they got a little competitive!
We had a warm welcome and it was quick and easy to get everyone set up. They have 3 different lengths of golf clubs which means my youngest could easily join in too, a big bucket of brightly coloured golf balls to choose from and a team scoring sheet.
The crazy golf has a rustic wildlife theme which each hole being different and with varying levels of challenge. Concentration and determination were consistent throughout all 18 holes as my boys were fully engaged.
Can you make your way through the windmills or through the tubes that lead in and out of the train?
I think the loop the loop was our favourite. Tensions did rise at times as the competitive spirit increased but these are important skills as you grow up and the jubilation of a whole in one is a great feeling.
Overall, I think it’s a really great value family attraction. I noticed they have offers for groups of 10 or more and this would be ideal for a Cub Scout activity or just grouping up with another family.
The 18 hole mini golf course is set in Newbury town centre at the wonderful Victoria Park. It’s right next to tennis courts and opposite the great play park with it’s super slides, toddler area and splash park.
The Practical Bits
Set in Victoria Park in central Newbury, there’s no parking at the crazy golf itself. However, there’s lots of low cost parking nearby. The Parkway Shopping Centre and it’s park is opposite and then only a couple of minutes walk.
There’s a small takeout cafe right by the adventure golf so you can pick up hot drinks and ice creams and I hear a new cafe is coming in the summer.
There aren’t any toilets in Victoria Park (as far as I could work out) but a short 5 min walk over the little bridge and there are public toilets. You’ll need a 20p coin to get in.
