IN Magazine were kindly invited to have a look round The Lost City Adventure Golf, located downstairs in Nottingham’s Cornerhouse.
The first thing we saw when we walked in was Barry the Parrott – The Lost City Adventure Golf mascot. As we continued further in to collect out golf clubs we were instantly hit with this beautifully realistic environment that makes you feel like you’ve been taken to the jungle.
With plants weaving around stone archways, wicker huts and rope walkways hanging mid-air, it’s just an incredible sight.
Catering for a wide variety of events from fun children’s parties, lively stag & hen dos, school groups, team building, corporate events and general group bookings, they’ve got something for everyone!
With their age range starting from budding adventurers of 3, all the way up to 103, The Lost City Adventure Golf is suitable for everyone – they also have wheelchair access, so all adventurers can play.
If you fancy a night out, why not try their Cocktail Masterclasses that are held in their private bar area.
This is a great experience full of making cocktails, competitions and then you’re taken downstairs to play golf. If that doesn’t sound like fun, I don’t know what does!
They have two 18-hole adventure courses to challenge yourself with: Temple Trail and Scared Skull.
Throughout the courses you’ll come across beautiful greenery, talking creatures and crumbling ancient stone walls, you’ll even come across a skull or two – make sure to keep your eyes peeled and your nerves steady.
If you choose the Temple Trail course, like we did, you’ll be embarking on an airy experience with a giant moving snake overhead, which we personally nicknamed Sammi.
Soundtracks of rain and thunder echoing throughout the course, it creates an experience which makes you feel right in the middle of a jungle storm. This course is designed to be the easier one out of the two, so if you’re a golf amateur like us, you might want to start with this one.
We then moved onto the next course which is called the Scared Skull. With this course you’ll experience a completely different atmosphere.
With the ceilings being lower and everything more encased, it’s a quieter and more difficult course designed to make you feel like you’re inside a cave.
This course will confront you with a moving alligator, huge skulls and exciting shots – this is definitely a course to show your boss who’s boss with your golf skills!
After you’ve finished playing golf you can head back upstairs to the Tiki Bar to treat yourself to a cold beer or tropical cocktail.
With 2-4-1 on cocktails every Monday to Thursday 4:30pm to 6:30pm, it’s the perfect way to end your visit at The Lost City Adventure Golf. If you prefer something non-alcoholic they also offer a range of mocktails, soft drinks as well as tea and coffee.
We ended our visit by trying their The Lost City Cocktail which was beautifully presented in a skull glass. This bright blue drink is delightfully sweet with juicy pineapple flavours. As well as this, we tried The Castaway Mocktail with was a beautiful bright sweet and citrusy drink.
Whatever the weather you are sure to have a fun time at The Lost City Adventure Golf. Open all year round, 7 days a week from 10:30am to 11:00pm weekdays, 10:00am to 11:00pm Saturday and 10:00am to 10:00pm Sundays, you are guaranteed an exciting time.
We had a great time out at The Lost City Adventure Golf and we believe it’s a definite must try the next time you’re in Nottingham – Why not take on your family to see who the best adventure golfer is!
As we walked out we were left giggling with laughter as we discovered our Golf Names: Mulligan Grandmaster & Gimme Front-Nine – What’s yours?
