Akin to the skills needed to be a successful nineties pop star, golf players require sharp moves, a penchant for clubs and the ability to pull off wedges. Spice up your life with today’s Groupon: £10 for two rounds of 18 holes at Paradise Island Adventure Golf
Sitting in pride of place in the cavernous central dome of The Trafford Centre, Paradise Island Adventure Centre has created an exotic alternate reality where brightly coloured tiki huts are surrounded by intriguing stone carvings and wacky model wildlife in every corner. Two floors of golfing adventure house the duo of courses - Tiki Hut Trail and Temple Ruins Adventure. Both provide tricky challenges for golfing greenhorns and professional putters alike, and the imaginative layout provides excuses a plenty for distracted dillydallying and errant shots in equal measure.
Entering the crocodile-guarded stone temple, golfers can immerse themselves in the world of adventure, guiding balls through gawping statues and round totem pole-lined putting greens. Challengers can try their luck at two 18 hole rounds, and play into the evening sunset, with late night openings till 11pm.
Paradise Island Adventure Golf is rated a swinging 3.5/5 stars onYelp. Adventurous golfers said they enjoyed their day there, and felt it suited all ages.
This Adventure Golf only adds to the entertainment factor of the ever-so-delightful Trafford Centre!

It's the sort of place you can kind of go to with anyone, dads would love it, kids love it, it's a good place to go for a date (no really it is!) and we had a right laugh when I went with work!
