Whether you’re 4 or 40, get ready to enter an ancient world, filled with cascading waterfalls, a stone fortress, ancient weapons and lots of unfriendly, sharp toothed dinosaurs!
That’s the idea behind the new adventure golf course, Mighty Claws Adventure, which opened in Colchester in April.
With 18 action-packed holes, the course features lifelike animatronic dinosaurs, a special movie soundtrack and lighting, as well as information boards with educational details about the dinosaurs.
The £1m complex was created by Allan Saud, a member of the family who owns the Playgolf centres. The original inspiration for the course came from a children’s book that Allan created, called The Mighty Claws Storm a Fortress.
This is the second Mighty Claws course to open in the UK. The first was successfully launched in Bournemouth in 2017.
Who can play at Might Claws Adventure Golf?
Mighty Claws Colchester is geared towards adults and children from around the age of 4 years. However, the venue also welcomes younger kids who don’t want to miss out on the fun.
Note: If you’re planning on visiting with little ones, you’ll need to keep a close eye on them as the course has several potential safety hazards such as rocks and water features.
Where is Mighty Claws located?
Mighty Claws can be found on Bakers Lane, Colchester, Essex, CO3 4AU.
