Manchester’s really big golf adventure

12.20am 11th March 2008 - Course Development

A Scottish company which runs what is claimed to be the world’s largest indoor adventure golf facility has signed up as one of the Trafford Centre’s latest tenants.

Glasgow-based Paradise Island Adventure Golf is due to open in the centre in early summer after work preparing the large site is carried out.

The adventure golf centre will feature two 18-hole courses covering 16,000 square feet. The two courses will be able to support 250 to 300 people at any one time, aged between three and 93.

Joshua Dantzic, director of the company, hopes his new venture will successfully complement existing facilities in the area such as the newly opened Chill Factor, the biggest indoor ski centre in the country. He was supported by advisors from Napthens solicitors’ commercial property department who helped to secure the Manchester site for him.

Mr Dantzic said, “We picked Manchester for our next centre because we look for leisure facilities adjacent to retail outlets. There aren’t a huge number of sites in the UK that would be suitable. The Trafford Centre was a great opportunity and is one of the best.

“We are looking forward to opening in the summer and bringing a new experience to the north west of England.”

Work has now started on the centre, and the official opening planned for the end of June or early July.
