Free golf lessons, face painting, a bouncy castle, goody bags and more will be on offer at the Abbey Hill Golf Centre’s swashbuckling, pirate-themed family open day on Saturday, July 15 from 10am to 5pm.

Although walking the plank and counting pieces of eight are not on the agenda, the public pay-and-play golf centre will be transformed in to a desert island getaway as the doors are thrown open for young scallywags and old sea-dogs to come and enjoy the centre’s excellent facilities, including the 18-hole Pirate Island Adventure Golf course.

The short nine-hole Par-3 Course, with holes ranging from 92 to 145-yards will be open for children under-16 to play for free with a paying adult, plus club hire for the 21-bay driving range will also be complimentary.

Captain Jack Sparrow will be on hand to welcome visitors to Abbey Hill – part of BGL Golf, the UK’s leading golf course owner and operator – who will be able to take on the fun Pirate Island Adventure Golf mini-course, which features a huge pirate ship, waterfalls, lakes, streams and islands, with rafts, treasure chests, cannons, swords and decorative crocodiles – all adding to the pirate-themed Open Day.

Gordon Forster, Abbey Hill Golf Centre General Manager, said: “The Family Open Day is a fantastic opportunity for everybody to come and experience golf in a fun and informal way.

“There will be a barbeque and refreshments on offer from the Abbey Hill café bar plus a wide variety of family-friendly activities to entertain golfers and non-golfers of all ages and abilities.”
