A CITY crazy golf course is set to celebrate its first birthday at the weekend - and Pirate Chip will be the star attraction at the party.

The nautical mascot will be the captain of a team of marauding mascots when Abbey Hill Golf Centre’s crazy golf course reaches its first anniversary at 11am on Sunday, October 21.

Chip will be accompanied by MK Dons mascot Mooie, the Xscape Ape, The Hungry Horse, Pucky from MK Lightning and MKFM’s Samantha the Panther.

School children from across MK will also be in attendance to join in the fun and try their hand at the wacky course.

The golf centre in Monks Way, Two Mile Ash opened the family friendly crazy golf attraction last year - and it has proved a huge hit.

The 18 hole course is open every day from 9am to 10pm, with last entry at 8.45pm. It has proved popular among kids and adults, with obstacles such as a huge pirate ship, lakes, waterfalls, rafts, cannons and even a resident crocodile testing even the craziest golfers.

General manager Gordon Forster said: “It has been such an exciting first year.

“We expected many people to come and play, but not so many older people. The whole family really love it.”
