I knew the new Mighty Claws adventure golf had opened last year in Bournemouth, but we hadn’t got around to visiting as a family. Abby went earlier in the year with a friend, so when we were invited as a family to visit and try out their tea time special, we jumped at the chance.
About Mighty Claws Adventure Golf Bournemouth
Mighty Claws Bournemouth has been open since Summer 2017, it’s 18 hole course is located at Playgolf Bournemouth on Riverside Avenue, just behind the large Tesco.
You can’t miss the Mighty Claws site when you drive into the car park, you’ll spot the dinosaurs a mile off. The car park can get quite busy during peak times, but as the site is open until 9.30pm, it’s a nice idea to go in the evening when it’s a bit quieter.
Crazy Golf Course
You can expect to spend around an hour to an hour and a half on the 18 hole course, depending on how busy it is. We visited around 4pm and finished our golf just after 6pm, but it was a lovely sunny day and there were a lot of people playing.
Each hole is different, some easier than others. We did have a chuckle at the balls dropping into the water on some parts of the course. It’s a good job there are nets dotted around to help you retrieve your balls.
All of us were a little competitive in a fun way. We didn’t manage a hole in one, but there were a few scored of two and three which was good.
I thought the flow of the course worked really well, and the theming was great. Life size dinosaurs that were very active even in the heat, saying hello to us as we passed them. They let us know when we got too close though!
Time For Tea
When you’ve finished your date with the dinosaurs on the golf course, the Kitchen Club restaurant is right next door ready and waiting to feed those hungry golfers.
The restaurant serves a good selection of food and drink including their new thick and creamy ice cream milkshakes and pizza buffet.
We started our feast with a new milkshake, each choosing a different flavour, just for research purposes you understand! I chose the Oreo milkshake, Abby had a chocoholic and Hubby opted for the Strawberry. We each tasted all of them, and the winner was the Oreo milkshake. It was my choice though so I got to enjoy it. You can currently enjoy 20% off milkshakes with your Mighty Claws ticket.
A mix of vanilla ice cream, cream cheese, whipped cream and crushed Oreos topped with more Oreos. It was amazing, and I was sad when it was all gone.
The Kitchen Club has a feature pizza oven at the front of their kitchen and we watched our choices of pizza go into the oven before arriving at our table a short while later. There are some great topping choices on the menu from Hawaiian, Vegetarian, to Bolognese and Meat Feasts.
We all opted for a different topping for our pizzas, each of which were really tasty and very filling. They are presented on a lovely circular wooden board with a pizza cutter to the side which I thought was a great touch.
Find Your Fortune Gem Mining
New for the Summer is Find Your Fortune Gem Mining. You can collect your gemstone pack from reception and take it outside to see which gems you can find. Each pack is guaranteed to contain gemstones.
We had a nice selection in our pack, but the anticipation of cleaning your gems and identifying them from the chart is definitely the most fun. Each pack of gemstones costs £3.50 or £3 with your Mighty Claws ticket.
If you’re looking for something fun to do then I can recommend a visit to Mighty Claws Adventure Golf in Bournemouth. Ticket prices are £6.50 for children, under 4’s are £3 and £9.50 for adults.
