Quest For Golf
It all went a bit crazy at the Westfield Shopping Centre in Merry Hill last Friday and the men in white coats had to be called in. Actually they were 10 children from St James’s C.E. Primary School who won a competition to be the official testers of the new Quest For Golf adventure golf course, designed conjointly by UrbanCrazy and Paragon Creative. Chris Harding, 2 times World Crazy Golf champion, also came along to put the course through its paces and offer some hints and tips to the school children.
This new and exciting course sits alongside Quest For Adventure (Sky Tykes high ropes for under 7’s), Quest For Adventure Extreme (high ropes for the brave), Nerf Blaster Target Range (target shooting game) and the Nerf Blaster Arena (combat shooting game) all inside the mall itself.
The new urban-themed miniature golfing game, with its blue carpet, orange borders and graffiti / urban art backdrop, is a real treat for the senses. Some of the holes have curious features such as a mirrored wall, a pin-ball style drop, ramps, slopes and Banksy sorry I mean banks. Even the former World Crazy Golf champion struggled on the fiendish 6th hole, and on the final hole was unsuccessful in landing his ball on the target – no prizes for him this time!
Chris said of his experience “The course has a brilliant design which is sure to appeal to all ages. The bright colours really stood out. I especially liked the features on hole 4 and hole 9. Both are totally unique and a great addition. The whole course really shows what can be achieved in quite a small area”. Mark Knox, course manager added “The Quest Adventure Golf Course and Sky Tykes ropes are perfect for parents looking to do something a little different with kids”.
The course is now open to the public 7 days a week: Monday to Friday 10am to 8pm, Saturday 10am to 7pm, Sunday 11am to 5pm. Be sure to check it out!
