Mr Mulligan’s Lost World Golf #SoGlosTeamReview

After eagerly-awaiting the opening of Cheltenham’s brand new adventure golf course, the SoGlos team pitched up to putt their way around Mr Mulligan’s Lost World Golf in the latest #SoGlosTeamReview.

In a nutshell

Promising plenty of light-hearted fun and some surprises along the way, Mr Mulligan’s Lost World Golf offers a brand-new destination to tee off, enjoy a tipple or two, and keep the kiddies happy too.


The review

The concept

Mr Mulligan’s Lost World Golf

With a host of budding adventure golfers in our team, we ventured inside Mr Mulligan’s Lost World Golf not knowing entirely what to expect from the much-hyped attraction.

What we found was a whole new world of adventure golf, complete with underwater sound effects, UV jungle scenes, and even some skeletal remains!

The latest in a hugely successful chain of leisure attractions, the trendy destination boasts appeal for both adults and children, thanks to its exciting scenery, tasty treats, and for older visitors, the boozy beverages.

Offering a strong selection of soft drinks, cocktails, beers and wines that can be taken around the courses, Mr Mulligan’s Lost World Golf caters for all ages and is open until late for older visitors, making it the perfect place to begin a night out.


The course

Mr Mulligan’s Lost World Golf
A feast for the eyes, every wall, surface and space is designed to submerge visitors into Mr Mulligan’s Lost World, with endless artefacts and props setting the scene – with all the décor collected from local charity shops for a lovely touch.

While it’s perhaps a little tame for pro-putters, the colourful course is sure to delight little ones thanks to the vibrant trees, bright creatures and unique touches… we only wished there was somewhere to store our bags and coats while we played.

With 36 holes split into two courses, the SoGlos team split into two groups; one taking on Canopy Creek and the other venturing into Neptune’ Mist. And with a drink in one hand and club in the other, we were raring to go.

Taking on Neptune’s Mist, the girls’ team faced a smoking volcano, dangling jellyfish, octopus tentacles, and bumps, lumps and obstacles galore, which we’ll blame for the lack of hole-in-ones!

Over in the other team, the Canopy Creek featured dinosaurs, monkeys, Aztec-inspired scenery, and even a moving bridge to boot, while the UV jungle room evoked the sights and sounds of the exotic.

Again catering to different ages and abilities, the holes varied in difficulty, some sporting tricky obstacles (the slopes were a particular Achilles heel), and some merely bumps in the road, with each hole providing a handy place to pop your drink.


Drinking and dining

A great place to treat the kiddies to an ice-cream, or enjoy a tasty tipple with friends, the dining and bar area offers a vast and stylish space to relax, serving up funky-themed cocktails, seriously sweet shakes and tasty burgers.

Heading to the bar after the game, our eyes were drawn to the industrial-chic décor which included filament light bulbs, large hanging lamps, and more artefacts from local treasure hunts.


SoGlos loves

Sure to please punters, Mr Mulligan’s Lost World Golf is set to launch an on-course service; guests will be able to able to order drinks whilst they’re playing and a member of the team will bring it to you – so there’s no need to interrupt the game!


Top tip

Carrying bags and coats with you around the course can get in the way of your game; take as little with you as possible and opt for a cross-body bag or handy rucksack.
