Woodland-themed 12-hole adventure golf in the heart of the forest

About the Project

Whitemead’s woodland-themed adventure within the fascinating Forest of Dean

Greenspan Projects were selected by Whitemead Forest Park to create a stunning 12-hole woodland themed adventure golf course for their thriving holiday venue.

Nestled in the Forest of Dean, the park offers an array of activities for visitors wishing to enjoy an escape into nature – whether that be glamping, camping or enjoying a sumptuous log cabin with a hot tub. With a pool, gym, and leisure club already in situ for guests to enjoy – Whitemead Forest Park saw an opportunity to diversify their offering for families looking for a little more adventure – and utilised a beautiful space in which to do so!

From the initial concept discussions, it was clear that Whitemead wanted to retain the woodland aesthetic for their new attraction – so Greenspan’s creative team got straight to work on the important theming of this course to make it truly unique to the venue. This resulted in the creation of expertly carved wooden sculptures, which have become firm favourites around the multiple challenges and obstacles throughout the course. There are also tranquil streams to navigate on an immersive wooden raft, magical talking trees, and woodland sounds to really add to the excitement of the course!

Another unique and soothing feature of the course surrounds the landscaping, which has been described as a “zen garden” by several visitors! It has been admired as an escape from the “outside world” into an immersive and beautiful space.

Whitemead Forest Park was very impressed with the overall design, installation, and project delivery process. Watch the full customer testimonial interview here from Lauren Kiddy, Revenue & Reservations Manager at Whitemead Forest Park, to find out more about the project.
