Here's everything you need to know about The Hole In Wand

Q What is The Hole In Wand?

The Hole in Wand is home to the world's most magical mini golf courses!  Themed around a magical world, there are nine mysterious holes around the course.

Q How can I book?

Should you have have a special request email for further information.

Q How many people can play together?

There is a maximum of 6 Wizards per group. This is to allow an enjoyable experience for other players and preven the course getting congested. Sadly we are unable to add an extra person on and will not allow you to play with a group over 6 Wizards.

Unfortunatley there are no exceptions to this rule and this number includes any under 3’s accompanying your group. Non paying players over 3 are not allowed to accompany the group unless a carer and can wait in our café area if capacity allows with a Wizard who is over 16.

Please don't make us grumpy wizards! 

Q How long will it take?

In the busiest periods an average Wizard golf experience will last around around 45 minutes for 2 players and up to 60 minutes for 6 players. This includes time to get in to the venue (usually 15 minutes) and play all 9 holes.

At weekends and during school holidays you may have a longer wait to get in to the venue and we will always endeavour to get you in as quickly as possible and at your tee time. 

We appreciate your patience in advance.

Q Can children play?

Minimum age to play is 3, but under 3’s accompanying the group have to be booked in for free.

Children aged 15 and under must be accompanied in their playing group by someone over 16.

Q Can we just turn up and play?

To guarantee your place it is always best to pre book and you can do that at any time during opening hours.   

We do however allow you to pay at admissions if we have space.

You have an allocated pre booked slot and we allow 15 minutes around that slot for you to start, if you are running late we will do our best to accommodate you, but nothing is guaranteed and you may have to wait for an available tee time. If you miss the day of your slot all together, I am afraid there are no refunds.
