A landscaped mini-golf course could become the latest attraction to draw crowds to a popular seaside spot.

Plans have been unveiled for a 12-hole putting challenge which would be located close to Folkestone’s harbor arm, next to the Little Rock seafood restaurant and The Pilot beach bar.

Permission is sought to have the course in place for eight years, which would make it a long-term feature of the thriving port area.

In addition to the holes themselves, there would also be a clubhouse, cafe, and seating.

A Harbor Arm spokesperson said: “In our continuing mission to reinvent the English seaside experience, we are very excited to be able to bring a brand new family attraction to Folkestone Harbour.

“Like much of what we offer, we hope this adventure golf course will be quite different from what people might expect.

“Located in our developing ‘Beachside’, home to Little Rock and The Pilot, we hope to build a unique attraction in a beautiful setting.

“This will be one of many new developments we have planned for an exciting 2022.”

Designed by City Golf Europe, adventure golf specialists who have created more than 350 courses across Europe, the new attraction would be built in a former storage yard to the west of the restaurant and bar.

If plans are approved by Folkestone and Hythe District Council, two shipping containers will be secured together to create the pavilion and coffee kiosk, which will be accessed via a pedestrian promenade.

Last summer, a temporary mini-golf course was set up on the other side of the Harbor Arm, near the Goods Yard and the Harbor Screen.
