Abbey Hill GC’s £775k ‘pirate island’ opens

A mini-golf ‘Pirate Island Adventure Golf’ activity centre has been opened at Abbey Hill Golf Centre in Milton Keynes.

The facility boasts an array of features, including a huge signature ship, waterfalls, lakes, streams and islands, with rafts, treasure chests, cannons and decorative crocodiles and swords adding to the pirate-themed landscape. It is also wheelchair-friendly.

The attraction has been developed at a cost of £775,000 and players  require only a putter to navigate their ball around an 18-hole course.

Gordon Forster, general manager of Abbey Hill Golf Centre, commented: “We want to introduce more young people to golf.”

Colin Mayes, chief executive of Burhill Golf & Leisure, which owns Abbey Hill, added: “Pirate Island Adventure Golf will provide guests, including families, with an ideal introduction to the sport, and the local community with a healthy and fun way of enjoying golf. This new leisure facility has also created five extra jobs.”
