Review: Paradise Island Adventure Golf – Cheshire Oaks

During the holidays Olivia and I were invited along to test our adventure golf skills at Paradise Island Adventure Golf in their brand new home in Cheshire Oaks. As the UK’s leading indoor adventure golf provider the Cheshire Oaks attraction is is the latest addition to the chain who can also be found in Glasgow, Manchester, Sheffield and Livingston.

We love a bit of mini golf but very rarely play despite there being a course local to us, and usually only end up playing when away on holiday around the UK. If I am honest I hadn’t actually heard of Paradise Island even though their closest one to me was previously at the Trafford Centre. But Cheshire Oaks is so much closer to us and a welcome addition to the entertainment complex. I can see why they chose the location situated right next to Vue cinema it’s really easy to find. Right in the heart of it all.

So there are two different 18 hole courses, we ended up playing the one pictured above. With it only being open a mere 10 days when we visited it was all still shiny and new and deceivingly spacious. When you go in it doesn’t appear to be that big but they have made clever use of the space incorporating every bit of space available without feeling too closed in. With this in mind though it wasn’t really all that busy when we visited so I can imagine at busier times of the year it will get crowded pretty quickly.

It is worth noting that after the first 2 holes we had abandoned all rules and pretty much just played ‘coz well we really ain’t all that and where’s the fun in the kids getting all stroppy and bitchy because they’re losing! So we just went with it. The scoring went out the window too so I think I probably  didn’t won! As an extra treat when you are leaving there is a 19th hole! If you can manage to get a hole in one here you get a free game! Needless to say none of us managed it!

As I said it wasn’t that busy and it took us about an hour to get round at a leisurely pace and there were 5 of us playing, but I was still shocked at how annoyed people get when they have to wait to take their turn and they take it sooo seriously too, newsflash people, we are allowed 6 goes each hole played per person! You try rushing 3 girls who have absolutely no idea what they are even doing. We mostly let them go first and became the back of the queue so as not to disturb others with our fun!

Anyway back on subject now. The girls loved it and it was a fun way to spend the afternoon although I would recommend going as part of a big group to get get your moneys worth otherwise it will be over quite quickly unless you opt to play both courses. I loved that there are also lockers to put your coats etc in too. I hate visiting things like this and having to cart around coats/bags/shopping etc. Also as the courses are situated upstairs you have the option of getting in some extra exercise trekking up and down or taking the lift up. My only issue was with the staff. I am big on customer service and I felt it was lacking in this department. Maybe they need more time to settle into their roles but I felt it was quite unorganised to say the least and for a new attraction I expected more. I would of liked to have seen more staff involvement, maybe some tips as you are going round and spending that little bit more time at the front desk too as oppose to rushing us through ie mentioning the lockers as we had our hands full with coats etc and hypo kids!

    I love crazy golf! We recently had a mini golf open in Cardiff and we had people huffing and puffing that we were taking too long too! Perfect day out for a family 🙂

    I love mini/crazy golf but only really play it when we go away. It’s very much a British holiday thing to do isn’t it?! There is a similar thing here but I’ve not been myself, although the men of the family went a couple of Christmases ago while the women went shopping.
