Some 1100sqm of synthetic grass, 280 railway sleepers and three large tree stumps are all par for the course at the Swan Valley's newest attraction, the new 18-hole mini golf course at the Novotel Vines Resort.
Set to open just in time for the school holidays on September 23, the mini golf course is open to the general public and resort guests alike, with tee times available seven days a week from 8am 'til late.
For a slice of Swan Valley style, it incorporates natural materials such as rock, native grasses and plants, and timber railway sleepers. Within the perimeter of grape vines, there's also a tractor, wine barrels, a grape press and water features.
It takes about an hour to complete the course in a team of up to six players.
To celebrate the new course, the Novotel Vines Resort is offering a special school holiday staycation offer with two nights in a self-contained apartment from $199 per night in a two-bedroom apartment and $249 in a three-bedroom apartment.
The offer includes $30 credit towards breakfast each day in Muscats restaurant, and children under 16 eat free at breakfast when dining with adults. Free unlimited mini golf is also included.
The deal is valid for stays between September 23 and October 8.
