With March bringing, longer and brighter days and lockdown restrictions beginning to ease, there’s light at the end of the tunnel.  Here at Smugglers, we’re so looking forward to seeing families together at last and with Mother’s Day just around the corner we’re counting down the hours until we can enjoy time together with our mums!

When planning your visit, check out our course rules which support our ‘Good To Go’ award by Visit England and Safe Travels accreditation which show how we are following Government and public health guidance in relation to COVID-19.  We’re also incredibly proud to have won Silver in the Large Visitor Attraction of the year at the Dorset Tourism Awards 2020.

We’re so excited about seeing you all again soon!  To get you in the mood for some mini-golf adventure March holds an interesting anniversary in Bournemouth’s smuggling past…

Smuggler Stories

In 1765 a notorious incident between Smugglers and Kings Men took place when under cover of night when 20 smugglers were discovered landing tea on the beach.  Whilst the skirmish was underway, the leader of the smuggling party, Robert Trotman was shot and his gravestone can be seen today in St Andrews Church in Kinson.  Make sure you look out for links to the past when you play through hole 17 on the course!
