Ah, the British summer. It is a time of glorious sunshine, unexpected downpours, and the eternal quest for the perfect patch of shade. One minute, you're basking in a heatwave; the next, you're huddled under an umbrella, wondering if you'll ever see the sun again. It's a season of contrasts, where picnics are planned with military precision, and SPF becomes your most prized possession.

But fear not, intrepid explorers! When the sun's rays become too intense, a hidden oasis awaits you. A place where lush foliage blocks out the glare, the air hums with the sounds of exotic creatures, and adventure lurks around every corner. Welcome to Treetop Golf – your escape from the ordinary and your refuge from the summer heat.

Join us as we embark on a mini golf journey through the jungle, exploring tips for beating the heat, discovering fun-filled summer activities, and uncovering how Treetop Golf can transform your summer from sweltering to sensational. So grab your sunhat (and sense of adventure), and let's dive into the heart of the rainforest!

The Heat is On: Why Mini Golf is a Summer Oasis

Picture this: the sun beats relentlessly, your commute is a sweaty ordeal, and even the ice cream melts before you can enjoy it. Sunburn starts to creep in, and the mere thought of exertion sends shivers down your spine (and not the good kind). The British summer heat can be a formidable foe, but fear not, for there's a refreshing escape waiting for you in the heart of the jungle.

Treetop Golf isn't just a mini-golf course; it's a haven from the scorching sun. Our lush, tropical pathways wind through shaded groves, where a dense canopy of leaves filters the sunlight, creating a relaxed and inviting atmosphere. Unlike the exposed fairways of traditional golf courses, Treetop Golf offers a respite from the heat, allowing you to enjoy your game without feeling like you're melting into the Astroturf.

But it's not just about the shade. The leisurely pace of mini-golf is a welcome change from the heart-pounding intensity of other summer activities. You can take your time, strategise your shots, and enjoy the company of your fellow adventurers without breaking a sweat. And when you need to refuel, The Thirsty Toucan and Jungle Buzz Café offer a wide selection of refreshing drinks and delicious snacks, all enjoyed in the comfort of shaded seating areas.

For those looking to refuel after an exciting trek around the forest, be sure to try our brand new kids meal deal. Little explorers can tuck into one of our new delicious Treetop Melt’s and sip on their favourite carton of juice for just £5.50 (Not available in our Metrocentre Jungle).

The real magic of Treetop Golf is its ability to make you forget about the heat altogether. As you navigate the quirky obstacles and whimsical challenges, the thrill of the game takes over, and the scorching temperatures become a distant memory.

The spirit of adventure is alive and well

Mini Golf: More Than Just a Game

Children Celebrating

Step inside Treetop Golf, and you're not just entering a mini-golf course; you're embarking on an immersive adventure that transports you far away from the everyday. The air is alive with the calls of exotic birds, the gentle rustling of leaves, and the rhythmic chirping of unseen insects. The temperature drops as you venture deeper into the rainforest, where sunlight filters through the dense canopy, casting dappled shadows on the jungle floor.

Each themed course is a world filled with quirky characters, vibrant scenery, and surprises. On the Tropical Trail, you'll encounter the mischievous Toxic Trio, a band of teenage frogs who may or may not try to sabotage your game with their off-key crooning. The Ancient Explorer course takes you on a journey through time, where you'll navigate ancient ruins, dodge stone serpents, and uncover hidden clues.

Treetop Golf isn't just about the game but the shared experience. Whether competing against friends, cheering on family members, or conversing with fellow adventurers, mini-golf creates a natural space for connection and camaraderie. Laughter erupts over missed putts, high-fives are exchanged over unexpected hole-in-ones, and stories are shared over refreshing drinks at The Thirsty Toucan.

The spirit of adventure is alive and well at Treetop Golf. Each hole presents a new challenge and opportunity for playful competition and collaborative problem-solving. As you navigate treacherous terrain, encounter mythical creatures, and uncover hidden secrets, you'll feel like a true explorer, forging your path through the jungle.

Remember to capture your adventure on camera! With its vibrant colours, quirky characters, and unique landmarks, Treetop Golf is a photographer's paradise. Snap a selfie with the Fabulous Sacred Mask, pose for a group photo with the Maraca Mambas, or document your triumphant putt on the 18th hole. These photos will serve as lasting reminders of your jungle escapades long after you've left the course; we’ve even got a free photobooth to capture the unshakeable excitement of the jungle!

Then there’s the question of refreshments, where The Thirsty Toucan and Jungle Buzz Café are waiting to welcome you with open arms. Sip on one of our new tasty mocktails, the Jungle Cooler, Berry Burst and Nature's Nojito, or treat yourself to one of our new cooling Jungle Shakes. With its relaxed atmosphere and delicious offerings, Treetop Golf ensures that your adventure is as satisfying as it is refreshing.

Whether you're seeking an escape from the summer heat, a fun-filled day with loved ones, or a unique adventure, Treetop Golf offers a refreshing alternative to the ordinary. Experience the magic of the rainforest and discover why mini-golf is so much more than just a game.

Making the Most of Your English Summer

The English summer is a fickle mistress, capable of delivering sunshine, rain, and everything in between, often in a single day. But rather than cursing the unpredictable weather, embrace it! Pack a picnic basket with your favourite treats, and be prepared to find shelter under the nearest tree if the heavens open. A little spontaneity can lead to unexpected adventures and cherished memories.

When the sun shines, there's no shortage of outdoor activities. Spread a blanket in a local park and engage in a friendly game of rounders or frisbee. Stroll through a botanical garden, marvelling at the vibrant blooms and lush greenery. Or, if you're feeling adventurous, rent a paddleboat and explore a nearby lake or river.

The key to a memorable English summer is to cherish those precious moments spent with loved ones. Whether sharing a picnic in the park, cheering each other on during a mini-golf tournament, or simply relaxing in the shade with a good book, the simple joys of togetherness make this season truly special.

And where better to create those lasting memories than at Treetop Golf? Our rainforest oasis offers the perfect anchor activity for a fun-filled summer day. Start your adventure with a mini-golf round, exploring each themed course's unique challenges and hidden surprises. Then, refuel with delicious snacks and refreshing drinks at The Thirsty Toucan or Jungle Buzz Café.

With its shaded pathways, relaxed atmosphere, and endless opportunities for fun, Treetop Golf is the perfect place to escape the heat and create memories that will last a lifetime.

So whether you're a seasoned adventurer or a first-time explorer, embrace the unpredictable nature of the English summer and make the most of every moment. After all, as the old saying goes, "There's no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing." (Just remember your umbrella!)

Tips to stay safe in the sun

Sun Safety in Summer: Beyond the Rainforest

Three young children playing golf

While Treetop Golf offers a shaded sanctuary from the sun, we understand that your summer adventures might take you beyond the rainforest. So, here are a few tips to keep you safe and comfortable under the British sun:

  1. Seek Shade When the sun is at its strongest (usually between 11 am and 3 pm), find a shady spot to relax and recharge. Parks, cafes with outdoor umbrellas, or even a stroll through a wooded area can offer respite from the heat.

  2. Slather on Sunscreen Don't underestimate the power of sunscreen! Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 generously and frequently, especially if you spend time outdoors. Don't forget those often-missed spots like your ears, nose, and the tops of your feet.

  3. Cover Up Wear a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, and lightweight, loose-fitting clothing to protect your skin from the sun's rays.

  4. Stay Hydrated Drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated and prevent heat exhaustion. Carry a reusable water bottle and refill it regularly.

  5. Listen to Your Body If you start to feel dizzy, lightheaded, or overheated, find a cool place to rest and rehydrate. Don't push yourself too hard in the heat.

Remember, enjoying the English summer is all about finding balance. With a little bit of preparation and some common-sense precautions, you can soak up the sun safely and make the most of this delightful season.
