WORK has begun on a brand-new adventure golf course at Andover’s Charlton Lakeside.

This new facility was approved following feedback from users, residents, and visitors to the lakeside. The new Iron Age themed adventure golf course will have 18 holes.

Adventure golf specialist Greenspan has been appointed to carry out the works, which will last for 16 weeks, ensuring the facility is open in time for families to enjoy over the summer holidays.
