This means it’s just a short walk away from the Resort’s accommodation and car parks, making it a great activity to enjoy whilst on a short break or just at the end of day spent at the theme park.

There are two 9 hole courses for guests to putt their way around, making a total of 18 holes all based on the theme park attractions past and present.

Opening times vary throughout the year, although, during the main season, Extraordinary Golf usually remains open at least one hour after the theme park closes. Despite the course being completely outdoors, it usually remains open unless the weather is particularly stormy.

Guests who book a Short Break in one of the Resort accommodation options receive 9 holes of Extraordinary Golf, included as part of the package.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_icon_fontawesome=”fas fa-golf-ball” add_icon=”true” title=”Courses” tab_id=”1651433531376-7c8be5d3-7d30″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”8922″ img_size=”200×200″ alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” link=”https://www.towerstimes.co.uk/resort/other-attractions/extraordinary-golf/west-course/”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]

West Course

The West Course serves as a reminder of rides and areas past and present, as you can plummet your ball into Oblivion or take a trip around Old Macdonald’s Farm.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Explore” style=”classic” shape=”square” color=”blue” align=”center” i_icon_fontawesome=”fas fa-search” button_block=”true” add_icon=”true” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.towerstimes.co.uk%2Fresort%2Fother-attractions%2Fextraordinary-golf%2Fwest-course%2F”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”8923″ img_size=”200×200″ alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” link=”https://www.towerstimes.co.uk/resort/other-attractions/extraordinary-golf/east-course/”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]

East Course

Whilst the East Course is home to Nemesis, one of the Resort’s most intense rides, you’ll also hit your ball around some of the more family-friendly attractions such as Driving School.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Explore” style=”classic” shape=”square” color=”blue” align=”center” i_icon_fontawesome=”fas fa-search” button_block=”true” add_icon=”true” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.towerstimes.co.uk%2Fresort%2Fother-attractions%2Fextraordinary-golf%2Feast-course%2F”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_icon_fontawesome=”fas fa-book” add_icon=”true” title=”History” tab_id=”1651433588342-7b632f91-f34a”][vc_column_text]In early 2007, Extraordinary Golf opened at the Resort, providing guests with an additional activity to enjoy outside of the theme park.

Despite a number of attractions that holes have been based on leaving the theme park over the years, the course itself has seen very little change. However, there has been some minor redevelopments including the removal of the “Queen of Speed” wording from the Rita hole following the ride’s rename in 2010, and the retheming of the Air hole to Galactica in 2016, after the ride itself received its virtual reality makeover.

Extraordinary Golf received refurbishment works in late 2021 and early 2022 to refresh many of its holes. Some of the holes also had new interactive features installed, such as a button to ‘launch’ Rita triggering sound effects and lighting. This was in advance of the Resort celebrating the attraction’s 15th birthday in 2022, with signage added to note this milestone.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Construction

Here we followed the construction of two extraordinary Alton Towers themed golf courses which are now situated alongside Splash Landings Hotel.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Explore” style=”classic” shape=”square” color=”blue” align=”center” i_icon_fontawesome=”fas fa-search” button_block=”true” add_icon=”true” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.towerstimes.co.uk%2Fhistory%2Fconstruction-archive%2Fextraordinary-golf-construction%2F”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”23967″ img_size=”200×200″ alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” link=”https://www.towerstimes.co.uk/history/the-drawing-board/extraordinary-golf-plans/”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]

Plans

A planning application was submitted in 2006 to add a crazy golf complex featuring two courses, with holes themed around attractions in the park.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Explore” style=”classic” shape=”square” color=”blue” align=”center” i_icon_fontawesome=”fas fa-search” button_block=”true” add_icon=”true” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.towerstimes.co.uk%2Fhistory%2Fthe-drawing-board%2Fextraordinary-golf-plans%2F”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_tabs][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
