Mark Allen, director of Wolverhampton Adventure Golf, said: "We have built a large, prehistoric-themed adventure golf course based at Perton Golf Club. The site is about one acre and has 18 holes.

"We have got a seven-metre long T-Rex, stegosaurus, triceratops, waterfalls, rapids and velociraptors on Jeeps. It will be great family entertainment and will be suitable for all ages – not only children!

"We wanted a way of bringing the youngsters into golf. We are a very welcoming club – we have a gym, a restaurant, driving range and the golf course already. So we thought it would be great to build an adventure golf course too."

Mr Allen added: "We are hoping that we can open to the public on Saturday and bookings will be made available online following the Covid-19 guidance. We are just hoping the weather holds out for us at the weekend.

"It should just be a really great day out for everyone. We are hoping everyone will really enjoy it. It will be a new attraction for the West Midlands – and hopefully people will travel from Shropshire, Staffordshire and Kidderminster to visit us."
