his week I headed down to St Mellons to test out Tee Rex Golf. Tee Rex offers the fun of adventure golf with added dinosaurs, and it looks like a winning combination.
Since opening in August, this venue has had a steady stream of visitors. There are 18 holes to tackle as you travel through the themed dinosaurs land. These holes vary from the straightforward to the more complex, with slopes and obstacles. Water surrounds a few of the holes which adds another level of difficulty.
Ready to Tee off? Here are all the details you need to know:
Tee Rex Golf is open daily. Weekdays they open 9 am to 9 pm, while on the weekends they are open from 9 am to 8 pm.
This venue is just outside of Newport (about a twenty-minute drive from city centre). You can use the postcode CF3 6XJ to find the site. It is slightly off the beaten track, so I would definitely recommend taking the car.
Tee Rex Golf seems to be offering special offers quite regularly, but the standard prices are as below.
Adult Ranger: £7.00
Junior Ranger: £5.00
Family ranger (2 adults 2 juniors): £20.00
Student ranger: £6.00
There is currently an offer running on the company’s website offering a half-price voucher for November if you sign up to their mailing list. This means that a family of four can currently play for just £10.
It took us around an hour to complete the course. We arrived early which meant no queues or waiting around. There are food, drinks and snacks available to purchase on site, however, seating is outside so this is weather dependent.
Footgolf is also available at the venue; team this with lunch and a round of adventure golf and you could be at the venue all day.
Anything with dinosaurs is a winner with my family. The giant models, including a T-Rex and Brachiosaurus, distracted the youngest members of the group long enough for the adults to take their turns. Some of the holes were a bit too challenging for younger players, but arriving early meant we didn’t feel rushed around the course.
If you like adventure golf, dinosaurs, competition and fun, then this is the venue for you.
