Playing the new Pirate Island Adventure Golf at Lyons Robin Hood Holiday Camp in Rhyl.
On Saturday 23rd September we visited the Pirate Island Adventure Golf course at Lyons Robin Hood Holiday Camp in Rhyl. What a brilliant minigolf course it is!

At the start of our holiday we'd stayed in Llandudno and while having a walk on the pier we'd spotted a poster advertising the new Pirate Island Adventure Golf course at Lyons Robin Hood Holiday Park. As part of our break would be in Prestatyn we could look forward to adding another course to our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour list.

Over the last eleven years we've visited more than 780 miniature golf courses. While some of these courses look similar they certainly don't all play the same way. Luckily for us the layout at the Robin Hood Caravan Park in Rhyl was a dream to play. It's brilliant that after all the years we've been playing we can still find new and unique courses that are also brilliant FUN to play.

The 18-hole Pirate-themed Adventure Golf course has some eye-catching features - from a great white shark to a huge octopus and a large pirate ship - and plenty of humps, bumps, lumps and obstacles around each hole. Plus there is great pirate music playing as you make your way around the course.

One of the things that made the course really playable was the fact that even though it was technically borderless, the high sides of the greens meant you could play some strong shots and rebounds off obstacles without fear that the ball would run out of play.
In our match-up on the course I won with a score of 33 - hitting 5 holes-in-one. Emily shot a round of 40, with 3 holes-in-one. We asked the man in the hut what the lowest score was and he said we were the first to ask (and tell him what we'd got). That means the course record MUST be my 33! Let me know if you can better it...

Our game was very good value at £5 for an 18-hole round and we'll be back to play it again.
