Dinos arrive in North Yorkshire for golf adventure

Dinosaurs have arrived in North Yorkshire as part of a new £300,000 adventure golf course next to Lightwater Valley theme park.

The 18-hole challenge took five months to build and is the only one of its kind in Yorkshire.

Jurassic Adventure Golf features giant animatronic T-Rex, Triceratops and Diplodocus, along with a large Brachiosaurus creating an interactive experience suitable for all ages.

Mark Bainbridge, general manager, Lightwater Valley said:

“This family attraction is a real boost to our offer and it’s suitable for experienced golfers and for people who’ve never picked up a putter before.

“Golfers will have to avoid the dinosaurs’ swishing tails as they negotiate their way round the course.

“With the Lightwater country shopping village and granary café also nearby, visitors can enjoy a round or two of golf followed by a bit of retail therapy and a bite to eat.”

The Jurassic Adventure Golf course is open all year round and tickets cost £7.50 per adult, £21 for a family of three or £25 for a family of four. Under 3s are free of charge.

It’s a separate attraction to the theme park and more information can be found by visiting lightwatervalley.co.uk or by visiting Facebook.com/LWVTP. You can also follow on Twitter @LightwaterV
