We love a bit of crazy golf and have been to Paradise Island Adventure Golf at Soar Intu Braehead Shopping Centre in Glasgow, many many times. We went on a few dates there before we had kids and the boys love it. When we were invited to go along, of course we went. We’d already been over the summer holidays, but the kids love it, so it was a good way to end our summer of memories.
You can book your time slot, but we have never needed to. We’ve always just walked in and played. It can be quite busy depending on the time of day and if it’s the weekend. When you go in you pick your coloured golf ball, it’s best to chose one colour for each player, and decide if you want a score card, hubby is quite competitive so of course we got one, and then head up stairs to get your club. There are different size clubs depending on the height and age of the child. There are the little plastic ones for little ones, so they don’t burst any noses swinging them about, to smaller clubs for little kids to big clubs for us adults.
It is nice to take your time and have some fun, at times it can get a bit busy and you feel a little pressured to hurry along, but no one bothers, they are all there to enjoy themselves. There are some holes that are easier than others, so it takes a little bit longer.
The course looks great and is a lot of fun. It is something you don’t get bored of no matter how many times you go. Like I said we come here often and we always have a great time and come away laughing and giggling, chatting about our games. Usually hubby trailing behind adding up the scores, he’s in it to win it!
Aria, myself and my husband all got a hole in one. The boys did well too. It took just over an hour to get round the course, which is about right I think when you are playing with young kids. You can book to play 2 courses and go round both. This is something we will definitely do when all the kids are a bit older. I think Lucas would love to do this just now.
Paradise Island Golf is a lot of fun and it’s not just for kids. There are a few teenagers and early twenties perhaps on a date or having fun with friends. Even a group of work colleagues together for some team building. Somewhere you can have a laugh and a bit of competition. Like I said my husband and I have been before kids, it’s great fun for all ages. It isn’t great to get a pushchair round, so I’d leave it at the start if you bring one.
