  • 16. At what age do I need a ticket for my child?

    Child tickets are for players aged 3-12. PLEASE NOTE: Children under 3 are welcome to join a family group/team, free of charge, however the course has not been designed to cater to this age group. Children under 3 will not be assigned their own putter (golf-club) or ball. You may wish to pair your under 3 child with a sibling or friend, in order to share their putter and ball, to play some of the simpler holes but not the entire course. We ask parents/guardians of children under 3 to be mindful of other paying patrons on the course following behind your team, as children under 3 tend to take longer to complete a hole. Please remain aware and considerate in order to avoid holding up play for other patrons on the course.

    Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate guests without a ticket, even if only one member of your party is playing. Anyone who enters the course must have a ticket.
