Work on your handicap as you spend a day on the golf course in Greater Yarmouth

Adventure Golf

If golf is your game then look no further than Greater Yarmouth for a golfing holiday with a difference. For an active short break and a sporting challenge with an added dose of fun, get competitive and challenge your friends and family to the Greater Yarmouth adventure golf classic.

With 6 courses to complete, one indoors, two in Hemsby, and three on Great Yarmouth seafront, it'll take you several days to play them all and crown a winner.

 

Lost World Golf

Dinosaurs and druids in Hemsby

Hemsby is a busy village seaside resort with a stunning sandy beach just north of Great Yarmouth, the perfect spot to break yourselves into your golfing challenge. The forgotten land of the dinosuars awaits at Lost World Golf in Hemsby where you can take to the greens and get your eye in over your first 9 holes.

A quick spin round one of the near-by go-kart tracks will get your pulse racing after your game, then it's time for some lunch at The Lacon Arms. Sit out front or in the large beer garden to the back. Lacons is a time-honoured local Yarmouth brewer, if you fancy a lunch-time tipple, there's sure to be some on tap.

After lunch and perhaps a quick look at the beautiful beach or even a paddle, it's time to tackle the 15 hole Stonehenge mini golf course complete with standing stones to be navigated as you drive the ball home. 

After a hard day's play, you'll be forgiven for having a go on the amusements along Beach Road, perhaps treating yourself to a doughnut and having a few rides at the Fun Park, you're on holiday after all. 

 

Pirates Cove

Pirates, seals and star-struck golf

Great Yarmouth's Golden Mile is the venue for today's play - if you're driving, North Drive long stay car park might be your best value parking option with a short walk past Britannia Pier to your first destination.

Pirates Cove is a fantastic adventure themed golf course with 18 tricky holes to play over beautifully landscaped greens, with pirates leering out of their crows nests and palm tree fronds waving in the breeze.

Best get started early so you can have a breather afterwards, perfect timing for a trip out to see Scroby Sands and the seals from Central Beach.

Enjoy an ice cream sundae at Joyland Diner or some lunch in one of the many restaurants on the Golden Mile, then tackle an additional 10 holes at Hollywood Indoor Adventure Golf. 

Unusually housed inside a former theatre, it's the ideal place to ensure rain won't stop play or for a shady break if the sun's beating down on you.

 

Jungle Safari Golf

Gardens, the jungle and Castaway island

Head to the southern end of Great Yarmouth's Golden Mile for your final day's play, with long stay parking at St. Nicholas car park, opposite Pleasure Beach Gardens possibly your best option if you're travelling by car.

The Pleasure Beach Gardens is home to a jungle-safari themed 12 hole course, where Sara's Tearoom overlooks the 8th hole, perfect in case you feel the urge for light refreshments.

Having navigated your penultimate course, you might feel like zipping round the Segway track afterwards, a quick turn round the big wheel with amazing views over Great Yarmouth, or relaxing in next-door Merrivale Model Village's landscaped gardens, before lunch in their tearooms and gathering your wits to take on your final golfing challenge.

The grande finale takes place in Greater Yarmouth's newest 18 hole course at Castaway Island with real palm trees blowing in the breeze and a tall lighthouse to navigate.

Once you're done, tot up your score over the three days and crown your overall champion. Time for a well-deserved celebration.
