A ‘hole’ lot of fun will be on the score cards this weekend (Saturday, August 20) as Jurassic Golf roars into Harrogate town centre.
This nine-hole pop-up mini crazy golf course – complete with dinosaurs – is taking over the Victoria Shopping Centre Piazza from Saturday, August 20 until Sunday, August 28, and comes courtesy of Harrogate BID (Business Improvement District).
And to complement the golf, the BID team has also created an educational Dino Trail around town, via the LoyalFree app, with the chance of winning a meal for four at 63rd + 1st on Albert Street.
Matthew Chapman, Harrogate BID Manager, said: “With the school summer holidays nearing an end, parents maybe scratching their heads thinking what to do to entertain their children.
“Well, we have the answer – Jurassic Golf! And what could be me more fun than a combination of dinosaurs and crazy golf?
“In addition to coming into town to shop, eat and drink, visitors can now add mini-crazy golf to the list. The crazy golf in the Valley Gardens is incredibly popular, and we are confident our Jurassic Golf will be a roaring success.
“And once you have completed the challenging nine-hole course, there’s a dinosaur-themed themed trail to follow around town. A great way to spend an hour or two before or after visiting Harrogate’s great shops, bars and restaurants.”
The Dino trail is a fun, educational trail where users can reveal the answers to Jurassic-themed questions by scanning a QR code on a poster, displayed in shop windows.
The answer will then appear on their phones! As users complete the trail, they will also be collecting letters that form a simple, themed anagram. Users can then submit the anagram/answer via the LoyalFree app for an additional chance to win in the local prize draw!
Those wanting to play a round of Jurassic Crazy Golf can either simply pitch up, or book online at https://www.jurassicgolf.co.uk/harrogate . The cost is adults £3, children £2.50, family of four (two adults and two children) £10 and one adult and one child £5.
