A brand new mini golf experience is set to tee off in the West Midlands this spring, located in the heart of Birmingham’s Bullring and Grand Central. Joining a host of other locations across the UK, the newest Treetop Adventure Golf site is on course to reveal its mighty rainforest on May 31st to coincide with the post-lockdown return of the leisure and hospitality sector.
Situated on the southern side of the Bullring shopping centre, the former Forever 21 unit is undergoing an expansive £2.4 million refurbishment to transform it into an immersive mini golf experience for all. With two indoor 18-hole courses to explore, guests can choose to tackle the Tropical Trail’s Mystic Wood or the ruins of the Ancient Explorer, alongside a Bonus 19th hole that gives players the chance to win a free round should they score a hole in one.
Guests will also be able to refuel during their jungle journey, with an abundance of vibrant food and drink options to choose between; from the Jungle Buzz Café and Pizza Cabana to The Thirsty Toucan bar, there is sure to be something to suit every occasion.
Commenting on the rainforest’s upcoming launch, CEO and co-founder of Treetop Adventure Golf, Elizabeth Stanway says:
“We can’t wait to bring our mini golf experience to life within the depths of the Bullring shopping centre. After a tough year for everyone, we’re counting down the days until we can tee off and open our doors to the public this spring.
“Our jungle will be open seven days a week, for everything from family days out to student hangouts, date nights, work get-togethers and celebrations. Birmingham has always been a landmark location and we’re so excited to be launching in the heart of the city centre and look forward to seeing guests making treasured memories together!”
As well as boosting employment in the city centre with the creation of 25 jobs, the team are set to work with several local suppliers; including Quarter Horse Coffee, The Brutally Honest Bakery and Birmingham Brewing Company – yet more welcome news for Birmingham, after the unprecedented impact of COVID-19 upon local hospitality venues.
Guest and team safety is also a top priority for Treetop. They’ll be reimplementing a number of safety measures and social distancing guidelines across all of its existing sites as well as its new Birmingham-based destination. There will be a one-way route for guests, fewer people for more space, and signs throughout the rainforest to keep guests a safe distance apart at all times. They’ll also be on the ball with extra cleaning and freshly scrubbing clubs and balls for every golfer.
“We’re really looking forward to getting into the swing of things with the launch of our Birmingham site. Now, more than ever, we know people value spending quality time with their loved ones. We think that Treetop Adventure Golf Birmingham will allow us to redefine leisure in the West Midlands and be a venue for everyone to come together to enjoy fun, food, drink and a great atmosphere in 2021 and beyond,” Elizabeth added.
