A mini golf course has been brought back to life with help from a group of dedicated volunteers.

After many years of being in decline, the Upminster Mini-Golf Course, in Hall Lane, has been restored thanks to the Friends of Upminster Mini-Golf Course group, which has been raising money for the past 12 months.

Chairwoman of the friends group Priti Chohan said: “The friends group has worked hard over the last few years to bring about improvements to the mini-golf course.

“The refurbishment of the crazy golf course has been a significant achievement and brings back into use an attraction that will appeal to young and old alike.”

The course is open from 10am-5pm over the weekends and then everyday during the school summer holidays, subject to the weather.

Tickets cost £5 for adults and £3 for children and those over 65.

Golf balls and scorecards are provided and snacks and drinks are also available.
