The course, based in Hedge Golf Centre, has been adapted from the children’s story The Mighty Claws Follow a Monster, and offers an immersive experience for families into a mythical land of sea monsters and shipwrecks complete with three water features and moving, life-sized dinosaurs.

Allan Saud, executive director of Mighty Adventures, said: ‘After eight months of construction, we are pleased to see Viking Valley open and being enjoyed by families of all ages.
