If you’re over Liverpool way and love minigolf, you could do very much worse than playing a few rounds at Championship Adventure Golf over on the Wirral. The course on Kings Parade, New Brighton, opened in 2014 and immediately won Wirral Attraction of the Year, followed soon after by a 2015 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. In fact there are two courses:
- Famous Golf Holes, which pays homage to the world’s most iconic golf locations. Take on Augusta’s Amen Corner, cross St Andrews’ Swilken Bridge and play near a replica of the famous Turnberry Lighthouse. Also included are holes from Pebble Beach, Abu Dhabi, Doha, Royal Troon, the Belfry, Vale de Lobo, Celtic Manor and The emirates, Dubai.
- Landmarks, where you can play a full 18 holes inspired by the Wirral’s landmarks and attractions past and present. Inspirations include New Brighton Lido, The Beaches, Birkenhead Priory, Smugglers Cove, Mother Redcaps, Fort Perch, Thor’s Rock, New Brighton Dips, Birkenhead Tram, The Mersey Piers and Vale Park.
The outdoor, floodlit, all-weather courses are open all year round. No booking is required, just turn up and play. Discounts are available for groups of 10+ and prices are £6.50 Adult or £10 for both courses, £4.50 Junior or £7.50 for both courses, £20 Family or £32 for both courses. Early Bird discounts are available for play before 11am. Courses are open 10am to 7pm and floodlit when it’s dark for some exciting night play.
Championship Adventure Golf was built with assistance from the Merseyside Special Investment Fund. The company behind it has also built courses around the UK and one at the Quinta do Lago resort in the Algarve. The Wirral has seen a huge renaissance in recent years and golf and minigolf in the area got a boost from the British Open being played at Royal Liverpool Golf Club in Hoylake.
