Wales set for Tiger Woods style mini golf attraction where you can play and party at the same time

Matthew Wharton is creating an 18-hole adventure mini golf course at Llangefni, Anglesey

 

 

Wales is set to get its first mini golf course inspired by a Tiger Woods concept which is taking the US by storm. Matthew Wharton, a golf pro, is working hard to open this special 18-hole mini-golf place in Llangefni on Anglesey and hopes it will be finished in two months.

 

But this isn’t your crazy golf with windmills and clown mouths, the idea is to create a upmarket but scaled down version of the original game.

 

The site will also be home to a stylish bar, pizza restaurant, events venue and outdoor seating area to enjoy drinks while watching the sunset. the golf course will also be floodlit so you can play in the dark.

 

The all-round experience concept has taken off in a big way in the US with Tiger Woods PopStroke mini golf venues.

 

PopStroke offers upscale clubhouses, indoor kids playgrounds and premium-turfed 18-hole putting courses. The company’s offer is “Eat, drink, play, party” and craft beers can be app-ordered by players for delivery out on the course. And Matthew has taken direct inspiration from Woods.

 

He said: “We’ll be using high-quality Astroturf for the fairways, with yellow Astroturf for the bunkers and longer synthetic grass for the rough. The fairways will be generously sized – some up to 20 metres long – and each will be banked at the sides up to 2ft high.

 

“That way, there won’t be any of the ugly concrete boundaries you see on crazy golf courses. It will be planted up with flowers between holes and there will be no obstacles, just trickery. Visually, it will be great!”

 

He added: “The mini golf course will be floodlight, enabling us to stay open until late in the summer so that people can continue playing while others sit outside or dine in the bar and grill. In winter we’ll be looking at things like reduced charges for the local community. In the long run, we aim to be the number one attraction on Anglesey.”
