Putt in the Park – Castle Park, Colchester

This exciting and challenging putting course has been specially designed to suit all abilities from the novice to the experienced golfer so the whole family can play.
So, whether you want to get the family out at the weekend and have a coffee and cake afterwards, organise an office lunchtime tournament and bite to eat or if you just want something to do with the kids, just turn up and play!
“This was my first social trip outside since lockdown and I was a little nervous. However I needn’t have worried, my family and I have had a really lovely afternoon out at putt in the park.
We were met at the gate by member of staff Justin who was really friendly and helpful and really took care of us. Once inside all the other members of staff were really friendly too. Well behaved dogs are welcome & Justin and two other members of staff offered my dog fresh water & dog treats. There is free water on tap for human visitors to help themselves to too! If you fancy a hot drink the latte & mocha are both really delicious. It was spotlessly clean & there was a hand sanitiser station available which was very welcome. The course itself was great fun, with little fairways, the rough, bunkers, rocky obstacles & water obstacles (with nets to fish your lost balls out of!). My family are teenagers and older & we were all challenged by the course & laughed the whole way round. I saw plenty of younger children looking like they were having a great time too. I would recommend booking in advance as it was busy when we visited.
The food at the cafe looked and smelled really nice but we didn’t eat there on this occasion. We would definitely recommend putt in the park to anyone wanting to spend a fun couple of hours outside”

Colchester Local’s Facebook Group Testimonial
**Having been open for a few months now, ‘Putt In The Park’, located within Castle Park, Colchester, deserves a mention!**
We popped in early one morning, to see this exciting version of pitch & putt, but with a modern, colourful, varied & challenging twist!
With obstacles, terrains, water-features, all giving the visitor a great fun game- this is a venue to be enjoyed by all!
You’ll be pleased you visited this local, outdoor activity, that can be enjoyed by the whole family (suitable for ages 3/4 upwards with different length putters available), and has great facilities in the café/bar, where you can enjoy a great coffee, soft drink, or a grown-up beverage or two. Not only that, but delicious light meals and snacks are readily available to buy!
Great thing is; you can just visit the café/bar, whilst walking the dog (dog friendly ⭐️), you don’t have to play the course- although it’s a great idea to give it a go! 😉
A couple of members have let us share their thoughts of their visit, we have posted them here with some photos- to inspire you to call in one day soon. Another great feature for Colchester.
