Plans for a new Â£500,000 dinosaur-themed golf course have been given the green light.Â
The pre-historic inspired attraction is set to open in Sandown, on the Isle of Wight, for Easter 2019 after councillors approved the plans.Â
'˜Dino Islands'¦ A Golf Adventure' course will have 18 holes and golfers will have to putt pastÂ obstacles like volcanoes, bridges and waterfalls.Â
