Millets Farmyard Golf is a brand new 18-hole adventure golf course at Millets Farm in Frilford. Earlier this week we were invited along (#AD) to try it out for the first time and we absolutely loved it!
Millets Farmyard Golf is positioned right next to Sprouts Playbarn and therefore has plenty of free parking directly outside. On arrival at the admissions kiosk we chose a coloured golf ball each and were sized up for our golf clubs. They have plenty of different sized clubs suitable from tots to grown ups. We were also given a scorecard and pencil, then headed outside to the course.
Each hole around the Millets Farmyard Golf course is themed around farming and Millets history. The first hole is a pig sty theme which was really fun. Look carefully and on some of the holes you’ll spot a sneaky way of getting a hole in one. For example on the first hole aim to get the ball into the pig food troughs to send it straight down to a hole in one. Sadly we all failed miserably and missed!
The theming around the course is brilliant. We came across chickens, sheep, bee hives, a cow with spilled milk (one of my favourites!), allotment vegetable patch and more.
Another highlight was the pull-along rope bridge. This is something I’ve never seen at a golf course before and it was so much fun! The lake and water fountain look so pretty. The sound of the water from the fountain is actually really therapeutic, although it didn’t stop the tantrums when 20 shots still didn’t see the ball land in the hole! There is a shallow lake and water features throughout the course at Millets Farmyard Golf so you will need to keep a close eye on little ones.
The course is suitable for all ages. I had children aged 3, 9 and 12 years old with me. I also saw people there with elderly Grandparents and plan to take my own Grandparents there to have a go too! There aren’t any benches to sit down around the course so just be aware of that if you have limited mobility. We saw a family carrying a fold-up camping chair around with them for an elderly relative which I thought was a good idea. A couple of benches along the way might be a good addition for Millets to consider.
We absolutely loved Millets Farmyard Golf and will definitely be going back again to have another go. It costs £8.50 per person (£7.50pp for over 65s). The amount of time you take depends on your group size. As a group of 4 we spent 1.5 hours there. It was really busy the day we went so we had to keep moving at a reasonable pace as there were people waiting behind us, but this just goes to show how popular it is.
There are some Ball, Beer and Burger evenings for adults and children over 12 years on selected dates April-September. Personally I think that sounds like a great night out! Tickets cost £17 (£15 for a soft drink instead of alcoholic drink). This includes a round of golf, choice of Millets burger, cheeseburger, veggie burger or hot dog, plus a beer or glass of wine.
