About the Project

Family fun on the farm at Millets Farm Centre

Greenspan were selected by Millets Farm Centre to create a bespoke farming-themed 18-hole golf course for their thriving venue nestled in the picturesque countryside of Frilford, Oxfordshire.

Millets Farm Centre is a homegrown business, and has been run by the Carter family since 1952. With over 500 acres of farmland, the family are committed to their farming heritage and growing their own produce – which remains integral to the business.

Two generations of the family now manage the farm centre on a day-to-day basis and Millets take great pride in providing a very unique destination – loving nothing more than bringing the freshest produce, whipping up delicious food and providing great days out for the whole family.

Having grown their visitor attraction portfolio over the last few decades, Millets Farm Centre are now celebrating 70 years of business. With acres of beautiful land at their fingertips, the centre’s owners wanted to bring a new attraction to life to help celebrate this commemorative year and enhance their offering for families to come and enjoy.

Greenspan’s design team worked to create a fun-filled farming adventure, which celebrates the farming heritage of Millets Farm Centre. The concept included the important elements that make Millets stand out; from their loveable farm animals to the famous “maize” maze – resulting in one of the largest adventure golf courses in the country.

Ensuring bespoke theming throughout was a happily accepted challenge – where characters were created conceptually by our in-house designers, and carved on-site at Greenspan’s workshop including cows, alpacas, chickens, sheep and, of course, falcons modelled on the Millets Farm falconry centre. There is also a full-sized farming tractor, beautiful water features with bridges and walkways, and rope pull raft to traverse the turquoise stream.

The adventure golf course is open daily for visitors to enjoy, from 9am – 5.30pm and will be opening to cater for evening sessions, birthday parties and private hire options in the near future. This has allowed for Millets Farm Centre to diversify their offering to cater for more inclusive guest events to create memories that will last a lifetime.

Since opening, the centre owners have seen a huge increase in footfall to the attraction… without any specific advertising of the official opening! Visitors are, of course, finding the attraction and enjoying a pleasant surprise.

Via Facebook, the following feedback was given:
