A 15-hole pirate adventure golf course could be built at Congresbury’s Cadbury Garden Centre if an application for outline planning permission is approved.
The proposed course would include features such as waterfalls, ponds, a ship and a bridge.
Applicant Weller Designs said in its design and access statement the course would be a family-friendly activity which would also prove an ideal ‘introduction’ into golfing for young players.
The statement said: “The proposed adventure golf facility is very much a family-orientated leisure pursuit and will appeal to every age.
“As a socially-enjoyable leisure pursuit, it is relaxed and fun and has none of the perhaps ‘intimidating’ aspects of normal golf, but (provides) an introduction to the sport of golf itself with the health benefits which accompany it.

The proposed adventure golf course site is used by the Smallway centre to store materials and display landscaping equipment.
