Pirate Themed Crazy Golf, Morpeth (Review)

This post is based on a visit in March 2021. Please check the Crazy Putt website and social media for up to date information.

I love Crazy Golf and it's a nice activity to enjoy for all ages. One of my children who shall remain nameless is not a fan though and has multiple meltdowns whenever we play / spends the whole time accusing others of cheating or not following the rules properly which can be stressful for us if we play together as a family. I guess it's one of those activities you either love or hate! 

Pirate Themed Crazy Golf, Morpeth (Review)

I still persist and book these things though and recently we tried Crazy Putt Adventure Golf at Morpeth Family Golf Centre. Despite one child pretty much crying the whole way around because the rest of us were 'cheating' 😳 the rest of us really enjoyed this course and declared it the best outdoor crazy golf course we have tried. 

The course is 18 holes so more substantial than some of the other adventure golf courses we have tried and feels like excellent value for money (we paid £20 for a family of 4). The course is flood lit and open in the evenings too so perfect for a summer evening after work / school.

They are currently open from 10am-10pm midweek and 9am-8pm on weekends. 

As you progress around the course, some of the obstacles do increase in difficulty - eg try and hit your call through a cannon. The course is surrounded by shallow water so keep an eye on younger children. We needed to retrieve our ball (using our golf clubs) on a number of occasions too which all adds to the fun. 

The Crazy Putt website mentions that the course is suitable for wheelchair users/pushchairs however users will need to be accompanied for some parts - there are a couple of wooden plank bridges over water which are a little wobbly to be aware of too. 

The course was spotlessly clean with lots of rubbish bins en-route which was good to see. 

We found tadpoles! 

COVID Protocols 

We visited at the end of March 2021 so please keep in mind that protocols may change over time as restrictions ease. 

I found the protocols in place to be excellent. We booked online, entered the building (bring face coverings for all who wear them) and were greeted at a desk. We scanned the track and trace app, mentioned our name and were guided to the sanitised golf clubs and balls and asked to collect one. 

The route through the building is all one way with clear social distancing markers on the ground. 

The toilets and coffee shop are indoors but everything else is outside. Adventure Golf really lends itself well to social distancing as you naturally wait at the start of the course as the people in front finish at the end. We were never within 2m of another group. Start times are staggered so although the course was full, there wasn't much waiting around at all and we all moved around the course at a decent pace. 

At the end, you simply drop your clubs and balls into the drop off point where they will be sanitised. 

Contactless payments only. 

Grace's Coffee Shop

Once allowed to open indoors, Grace's Coffee Shop looks like it will have a lovely seating area inside the clubhouse. They are open to all visitors. 

At time of publishing, we are only permitted to eat outdoors and there is ample seating outside overlooking the driving range. 

The coffee shop serves ice creams, delicious cakes, light bites and drinks and is worth popping by after a game.
