A NEW adventure golf course is set to open in Hampshire.

Firm Mighty Adventures will be opening a new course in Hedge End on Saturday, May 18.

The course has been described as a mythical land of sea monsters and shipwrecks and will include three water features and moving, life-sized dinosaurs.

Creating seven new jobs in the area as part of a £1million investment into the facility the new course can be found in Hedge End Golf Centre.

Taking several months to construct the course is located at Upper Northam Road, Hedge End.

Called Viking Valley it covers an area of 2,700 square meters and offers 18 holes of adventure golf.

It has been adapted from the children’s story “The Mighty Claws Follow a Monster”, written by Nat Luurtsema.

Many of the features in the park are based on characters from Nat’s books and its design is reportedly very similar to two of the company’s existing sites in Bournemouth and Colchester.

Allan Saud, executive director of Mighty Adventures, said: “We’re really looking forward to welcoming everyone to the new Viking Valley at the golf centre.

“The team have done a fantastic job of creating an exciting adventure for everyone to take part in, and we’re sure that this course will appeal to all ages.”

On the day of the opening, the course will be open for the public from 1pm and visitors will receive a 50% discount.

The investment into Hedge End Golf Centre also includes extending the car park to create 40 additional spaces and improve the café with a new menu and updated facilities.

According to Mighty Adventures, they are on a mighty mission to get everyone laughing, sharing and learning through play.

Their “fantastical adventures bring joy and roarsomeness” to kids, grown-ups and “never grew-ups” alike, says the firm.

The company says all of its courses are packed with wonder, joy and non-stop fun.

It adds that each one is completely unique and adapted from their fantastically funny children’s book series, Mighty Claws Adventures.

Author, Nat Luurtsema is a BAFTA-nominated screenwriter, stand-up comic and bookworm. She was inspired to write her books because she has loved dinosaurs since she was old enough to know what they are.
