Paradise Island Adventure Golf has opened the doors to its miniature golf leisure destination at Rushden Lakes shopping centre.

Arriving at what appears to be a plane wreckage, turned pay booth, players can choose from one of two 18-hole adventure courses, each full of exciting features and special effects, designed for mini-golfers of all levels.

The Temple Ruins Trail takes players through treacherous swamps and deadly jungles designed to test the golfer’s skills, while the Volcano Trail offers adventurous terrain which passes menacing inhabitants and lava spitting volcanos.
