Abbey Hill Golf Centre saw record numbers playing its Pirate Island Adventure Golf Course as more than 600 visitors enjoyed the fine weather and free golf at the facility's annual Family Open Day.
Scores of families descended on the public pay-and-play facility for the fun in the sun, which included a special visit from Captain Jack Sparrow, a barbeque, live music, face painting, free golf on the range, the Par-3 Short Course and Adventure Golf Course, plus a bouncy castle.
Players scoring a hole-in-one on the last hole of the obstacle-strewn Pirate Island were automatically entered into a prize draw to win adventure golf passes for four, plus lunch in the café bar afterwards, which was awarded to Mark Rowland, from Stoke Goldington, following his ace on the 18th of the bedecked layout.
In addition, PGA Professionals from Abbey Hill - part of BGL Golf, the UK's leading golf course owner and operator - provided free tuition to 40 aspiring golfers on the 21-bay driving range while 50 junior golfers took advantage of free golf on the nine-hole short course.
Gordon Forster, Abbey Hill Golf Centre General Manager, said: "It was a wonderful day for all the families who came along. There was a carnival atmosphere here with everyone enjoying all the golfing and non-golfing activities.
"Everyone enjoyed the great weather, the great food and drink as well as all the great golf. I look forward to seeing everyone back at Abbey Hill again soon, whether they're here for the golf, or the food or for one of our many family-friendly events."
