A new dinosaur-themed adventure golf course will reopen in Wokingham this summer

A renovated adventure golf course is set to reopen in Berkshire this summer. Wokingham Family Golf has applied for permission to redesign its dinosaur-themed course, adding six new holes to the existing 12.

Plans approved by Wokingham Borough Council, proposed using the footprint of the existing course and extending it north towards the current clubhouse, to incorporate the additional holes. The proposal for the new thematic route includes the repurposing of existing dinosaur sculptures, which will be relocated to accommodate the new design.

There are 15 such “dino” props on the site, with the largest reaching a height of almost six meters. Managing Director and Chief Professional Chris Arding said: “Development is starting now and we expect it to be complete by July 2022, ready for summer vacation.”

The new course will still be dinosaur-themed and will contain an educational story, where players must navigate their way through the historical timeline. Mr Arding added: “[It will start] with the Triassic period then until the Jurassic then ending with the Cretaceous.

“There will be educational information panels at the entrance to each period with additional dinosaur information panels.” The course will also feature a waterfall – where players will have to play a hole-through – a pull-along raft to cross the waterfall, a smoldering volcano, a hole-thru crashed jeep and animatronic dinosaurs – the largest reaching a height of nearly six meters.

“The course is a significant investment for us which will fit perfectly with the huge investment we have made in recent years in the driving range – with Toptracer (a digital shot tracker) – the footgolf course and the brand new Legends Cafe and Sports Bar,” said Mr Arding. Wokingham Family Golf, which opened in 2015 in Finchampstead Road, is also home to a floodlit driving range, nine-hole pitch and putt golf course, footgolf course and golf course. with large holes, as well as a clubhouse which includes the Legends bar and cafe

The owners hope that providing an outdoor experience will serve as a gateway for more young people to get into golf. The council approved the plans on March 25.
