Recently we were lucky enough to be invited to visit Gravitee Golf with some friends. I hadn’t heard of it before but the kids enjoyed playing crazy golf on holiday so we thought it was worth a look.
Gravitee Golf has 2 courses for you to try out. Galactic Explorers is the easier one of the two so we chose this one. The second one called Space Odyssey has some very cool special lighting effects!
We split our group of 12 into 3 smaller groups and collected our clubs and balls from the desk. We were given scorecards to keep track of everyone’s scores. Try not to cheat!
The first area of the course is set up like you’ve landed on Mars. Each hole had its own unique features and they were all good fun as well as challenging. We loved the aliens and moon buggy which all added to the atmosphere. You could easily see and talk to the others which meant we were all able to enjoy each others company despite being split in 3 separate groups.
The second area of the course is designed to look like your spacecraft has crash landed in an ancient jungle land. Again there were some quirky features and the decor was fun. We loved being able to explore the spacecraft. 3 of the holes are actually inside the spacecraft. It’s very cleverly designed.
There are toilets situated part way round the course which are easily accessible at any time. There is also a bar serving drinks and snacks as well as pizza. You can have more fun with the pool table too.
Our group consisted of children as young as 5 up to adults who are….. well it would be rude to share Granddad’s age publicly. Let’s say senior citizen! Everyone really enjoyed themselves and its great fun for all the family. It took us about 45 minutes to all complete the course, without any rushing.
In terms of value for money I think the normal pricing is high for the size of the course and time you spend playing it. Having said that, if you look around you can sometimes find half price vouchers which makes it much better value for money. It’s a fun activity for a rainy day and something a bit different. It’s also a fab idea for a teenagers birthday party too!
