I was back home at my parents house in Kent for some time over the Easter break. After munching lots of easter eggs my littlest sister Emily and I decided it would be fun to try out the new local crazy golf course.

Sparrows Den

Enchanted Village is situated in Sparrows Den, which is a big outdoor park area with rugby pitches and a cafe. The fields of  Sparrows Den back onto some woods which are great to explore with the family dog Rolo. Sparrows Den is located only a short walk away from my parents house so was super quick and easy for us to get to.

A Spot of Golf

As well as having the newly opened Enchanted Village adventure golf course, Sparrows Den is home to a pitch n putt golf course. I played the pitch n putt course many times as a teenager with my school friends – I dont ever remember being very good though!

Emily and I collected our golf balls and clubs from the cafe’s kiosk and made our way round the course. The weather took a little turn for the worse and it rained lightly for the majority of our game. This didn’t dampen our spirits though or Emily’s skills with her getting a hole in one on the first and second hole! I should have known then I was doomed!

 

There were a few other groups on the course and we enjoyed chatting with a dad and his young son who were deep in a competitive game! It was so cute to watch them!

Winner Takes All

Unfortunately for me, after Emily’s amazing start to the game I couldn’t make a come back and she won! Beaten by my little sister – the cheek of it!

Despite loosing the game I had a good time. The course is fun and I like the enchanted, magical theme, especially all the toadstools. The 18 different holes are engaging and not too challenging. It’s suitable for whole family!

The owners of the golf course and cafe gave us 2 free passes for another game of golf as the weather had been so wet. They told us it would be more fun in the sun than in the rain and hoped we would return. I think this shows good customer service and means we will return again soon for a rematch – so watch out Em!!
