Alien planetary landing sites, black holes and space ships have all appeared next to the Kassam stadium as adventure golf goes interstellar.
There is now a pair of new space-themed 18-hole golf courses on the first floor of the Ozone Leisure Complex in Blackbird Leys.
Competitors have to negotiate their way around five zones, putting balls on a space dock, inside a spaceship, in outer space, on a Mars landing site and in an unknown, mysterious forest planet.
It was one of the first space-themed adventure golf courses in the whole of the UK when it opened in February 17th, says Alistair Burnett founder of the company Gravitee Golf.
He said: “People have done jungle, dinosaur and underwater themes but this is the first time anyone has tackled a 36-hole space adventure.
“It involves am amazing UV room, plus crashed space ships, aliens, rockets, a black hole and a Red Planet scape for the space adventurers…
“It’s looking absolutely brilliant.”
Mr Burnett said adventure golf is rising in popularity amongst people who want something different from the more-established leisure activities such as going to the pub, cinema or bowling alley.
“If you are looking for something fun to do there’s not always a whole lot of choice. We wanted to offer something that’s a bit different to the norm, whatever your age.“We welcome families with small children and grandparents or groups of friends for a stag-do, or as part of a team-building exercise with work colleagues.
We have party rooms and meeting spaces so people can come and play and then hang out afterwards.”
Mr Burnett said ‘adventure golf’ differs from its seaside sibling ‘mini golf’ because it is themed and has a storyline, which adventurors can follow as they work their way around.
He added: “It really takes things to next level with so much more going on, it is really exciting.”
