ISS Lifestyle’s exciting and newly refurbished Adventure Golf Course ‘Buccaneer Bay’ will re-open on Tuesday March 11th following substantial investment.
The official opening will take place at 11am and children under 12 attending the event who are dressed as Pirates will receive a free round of golf and free Beechdean ice lolly (limited availability) between 11am-1pm. There will also be a chance to meet world famous Jack Sparrow lookalike Simon Newton, credited as Johnny Depp’s photo double for the UK filming of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
The Adventure Golf Course which is situated within the grounds of Norfolk Gardens, Littlehampton was originally installed by Arun District Council in 1995 and until now has remained largely unchanged.
The refurbishment has transformed the course from its original nautical theme into an adventure packed pirate themed course.
Each hole has received a substantial makeover with various new features installed throughout including pirate statues, a smugglers cave, a crow’s nest, hand carved gravestone obstacles and a giant barrel vortex. The boat situated on hole seven has been repainted and renamed, converting it from ‘HMS Force Three’ into ‘The Black Jack’ a traditional Pirate Galleon’ with a Jolly Roger flag flying high above Norfolk Gardens.
The 2017 refurbishment outlines ISS’ firm commitment to invest heavily in Arun’s Outdoor recreation facilities. The company has already overhauled the Norfolk Gardens’ café and the coming weeks will see major works being undertaken to the Par 3 golf course and tennis courts as well as further works to the café.
Justin Simpson, Manager, ISS Lifestyle said “Norfolk Gardens has always been a great sports site and I’m delighted that we have been able to deliver on our promise to Arun District Council.
We have worked hard with Arun District Council to make sure we provide the local and wider community with a quality, adventure filled attraction, supporting the ongoing regeneration of Arun’s seaside towns and creating key visitor destinations for years to come.”
Councillor Terence Chapman, Arun District Council’s Cabinet Member for Environmental Services, said: “this is an excellent example of ISS delivering on their commitment to invest in key Arun parks in partnership with the Council. It is just one of a number of exciting schemes in the pipeline aimed at improving the outdoor leisure offer for both residents and visitors to the district”
