Like many parents, I’ve a competitive streak and want Cyrus to be the next best thing at something. The challenge has been finding which sport he likes the most.
So far he’s played tennis, had splashing fun with swimming, has kicked off with a weekly football class and just to get him in the swing of things, I thought we’d have a go at golf.
Dinosaur Encounter Golf can be found at Heighley Gate Garden Centre in Morpeth, Northumberland and with 12 holes, a waterfall and 10 lifesize dinosaurs, this adventure was really roarsome and kept our little family entertained for a good couple of hours.
With fun prehistoric facts dotted around the course, it makes for a learning experience as well as some close-up encounters with larger-than-life dinosaurs.
As little C took a walk on the wild side armed with his ball and mini putter, he navigated a few obstacles and tricky turns, but still played better than mummy and roared with excitement when he scored.
The total cost of our game was £8.50, but by the time we’d had coffee and snacks afterwards we didn’t get much change out of a £20 note. It certainly wasn’t the cheapest way to spend the afternoon, but it was monstrous fun.
