Treetop Golf has opened its greens at Metrocentre, offering an “immersive” mini golf experience.
Bosses at the new Upper Qube venue next to Buffet King hope to transport guests to a jungle land with impressive scenery and two 18-hole courses.

The opening comes after a £2.5 million investment to transform the unit and bring 20 new jobs to the area.
It will be open seven days a week and hopes to attract families and children, as well as groups of adults, with later opening hours and a cocktail bar.
Elizabeth Stanway, CEO of Treetop, said: “We are delighted to open the doors of the Jungle today and welcome Metrocentre visitors to our newest immersive mini golf destination.
“We are there for everyone – from family trips to student meetings, dates, work meetings and celebrations. We can’t wait to transport our guests somewhere else so they can experience wonder, play and create special memories together.”
The Metrocentre is Treetop’s fifth UK location, with locations in Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff and Leicester.

Two courses are offered: “Tropical Trail” has a jungle theme with a waterfall and magical tree, while “Ancient Explorer” has a temple aesthetic. Players can also try the 19th bonus hole for a chance to win another free round.
Treetop Golf opens at 11 a.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. on weekends and is open until 10 p.m. most evenings, with a later closing time of 11 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.

Metrocentre’s Ben Cox added: “The launch of Treetop Golf adds another exciting dimension to the offering at Metrocentre, which has been further strengthened in recent weeks since the opening of the region’s only Zara.”
“We are also preparing to open the doors to Flannels, Sports Direct and Everlast Gym flagship stores in November, strengthening our position as the dominant shopping and leisure destination in the North East.”
The venue moved to the old Angry Birds golf course, but was completely destroyed during the multi-million pound renovation.
