Mr Mulligan's Lost World Adventure Golf in Stevenage

A visit to Mr Mulligan's latest Adventure Golf course.

You can't miss the entrance to the Lost World Golf!

Last year we heard about a new minigolf venue opening in Stevenage and Mr Mulligan's latest course - Lost World Golf - opened at Stevenage Leisure Park earlier this year.

We've been itching to get along for a game and earlier this week we had a round on the two nautical themed courses. We loved it.

The courses became the 685th and 686th visited on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour, and were the 403rd and 404th played.

Our group hit the Jungle Explorers course for round one and followed this with a game on the Ocean Adventurers layout.

There is some excellent theming throughout the indoor Adventure Golf venue - not least the giant wooden submarine that sits in the middle of the two courses!

What an obstacle/hole/feature!

The inside of the submarine contains a very very tough hole to play!

There's a real mix of obstacles and hole types and there's even a section of holes where you are plunged into blacklight - one of my favourite types of minigolf environments to play in.

Another fine minigolf scorecard added to The Crazy Golf Museum archives


It was also nice to have a break between rounds with a drink at the bar. We also had a celebratory/consolation drink at the end of our second round.



Visit Mr Mulligan's website for opening times and prices, as well as details of his courses in Milton Keynes, Sidcup, Castleford, Nottingham and Woking. We've yet to visit the Nottingham course at Ramsdale Park Golf Centre.
