A lorry load of golf fun will arrive at the Memorial Park this Easter 

A new 36 hole mini-golf course in Coventry’s War Memorial Park will open during the School Easter holidays.

Golden Putter, a portable venue, is being constructed this week, and located next to the tennis courts and tennis pavilion.

It’s being erected this week.

The temporary event structure will be trialled during the Easter holiday period and park managers say it offers visitors yet another reason to enjoy the city’s iconic park – just a mile from the city centre.

Emma Cosgrove, Coombe Abbey Park and Visitor Experience Manager who is responsible for visitor experience said: “The adventure mini golf course arrived on the back of an arctic lorry and is being built over the course of a week – it includes water features and natural planting, and includes an accessible course.

“So, for a temporary event space it will be impressive.”

The cost to try a round of mini-golf ranges from £7.50 depending on ticket class up to £43.50 for a family pass.

Emma added: “We think the price is reasonable when you measure it against other similar attractions in the city for families.

“The fact that it is portable means that it’s something that we will be trying out. I’m sure it will be really popular, and if it is a success, it will remain a feature of the park till after the school holidays.”

The venue will be accessible to wheelchair users.

The City Council are working with contractors Greenspace Leisure, which has set up similar temporary venues in large parks in the Midlands and elsewhere.

While the venue is being set up the electric car charging points will be out of use.
