Extraordinary Golf Future

Sun Jan 31, 2016 4:44 pm

Extraordinary Golf has been on the park for years and it feels a bit unloved. What do we think should happen to it?

I personally hope they revamp it soon. Its a good little activity to do and can be fun, but i feel they need to do something with it. They either need to add another course with the more recent additions like Galactica and Smiler or revamp some of the existing holes.

I believe it's received/receiving some attention this closed season.

I would love to see this get some attention. I would also hope if it does that it starts opening later. I always felt it was a bit of a shame that you couldn't enjoy a day on park and then finish with a round.

Unfortunately, attention may not mean bringing it up to date, a few new holes or tethering of current holes that have become outdated wouldn't unwelcomed. However I can appreciate that at currently this will not be the resorts top priority and that's understandable, but certainly something for them to bear in mind for the future if they want to progress with the resort concept.

Great to see it being refurbed! Hopefully Galactica will be added!

Can honestly say I've never used it and never seen the point to it. But it must be popular to be looked after.

Has anyone else noticed that it gets smaller on the map with every year?
And what would happen when the creature appeared?

Thanks for those photos! Anymore improvements? Did this course for the first time at the start of June and it was outdated. I don't think it's parts of it I think the whole thing needs ripping out and replaced!
