In June 2008, LEGOLAND® Resort Deutschland, near the Bavarian town of Günzburg, opened its “Holiday Village”, just outside the entrance to the park. In little more 10 years since then, what began as a regional amusement park, has evolved into an international resort with guests from 116 countries. Due to its increasing popularity, the accommodation capacity has required continuous expansion at the holiday village. A recent addition is the 142-room Pirate Island (Pirateninsel) hotel, which opened in March 2018. During the season, around 2,600 people stay overnight at the holiday village after the main park closes for the day.
The 15-hole Pirate Adventure Golf mini golf course, which also opened in March 2018, was built by City Golf Europe on a 1,200 m2 site in front of the Pirate Island hotel at the holiday village. The pirate-themed adventure golf course can be played by people of all ages - from 3 to 90 years of age - regardless of skill or ability; it is also fully adapted for persons with mobility disabilities. The course is specially designed to be played in two different ways: easy or challenging! Fun obstacles include a massive skull and a huge coiled snake, a treasure trove in a captain’s sea chest and a life-sized alligator built with hundreds of LEGO® bricks.
Uncompromising High Quality
The undulating and contoured playing surfaces of the course are made of high-quality, coloured synthetic turf (fairways and fringes), which is highly resistant to UV colour degradation and requires only a minimum of maintenance due to its high-durability properties. The putting characteristics are very similar to putting on real grass greens.
“We decided to partner with City Golf Europe because we were impressed by the technical expertise and the advice we were given, especially in areas of importance like health and safety, as well as the consideration of children’s needs. We also preferred the quality of their adventure mini golf courses.” Christian Sichert, director of the LEGOLAND Holiday Village.
Late-night Mini Golf for Everyone
Day-to-day running of the adventure golf course is managed via the reception staff at the hotel, without any need to recruit additional personnel. Although intended primarily for guests at the holiday village, the Pirate Adventure Golf course also welcomes the general public. Its long opening times mean that it is also open for everyone in the evening, after the main resort has shut.
Christian Sichert: "The unforgettable LEGOLAND experience keeps on going, even after the fun park has closed for the day.”
An additional benefit is that parents staying at the Pirate Island hotel and in accommodation at the holiday village can relax at any of the resort’s 4 restaurants next to the course, while their children are playing nearby.
