The Paradise Island Adventure Golf attraction at the popular leisure destination re-opened its doors to the public after lockdown, which began at the end of March.
Jessica, 30 and Victoria, 31 both from Erskine, Renfrewshire enjoyed playing a few holes of adventure golf before heading to Frankie and Benny’s restaurant in Soar, for a bite of lunch.
Jessica said: “We’ve certainly missed going out with friends and having some fun during lockdown.”
Craig Nichol, marketing manager for Paradise Island Adventure Golf at Soar said: “It’s fantastic to be open again. It’s been a tough few months for everyone as leisure activities have been one of the things people haven’t been able to do and it’s a big thing in our lives.
“Our bookings have been very strong since we announced we were re-opening and people are happy that they are able to get out and about and have some fun with their families.
“Knowing they can enjoy leisure activities again also makes them more relaxed and accepting of the restrictions that have been put in place to stop the spread of coronavirus.”
Paradise Island Adventure Golf has introduced a series of measures to keep everyone safe while they play golf at the attraction.
An online booking system has been introduced, although people can still turn up and pay to play on the day.
Directional signage is in place to show the one-way system around the two 18-hole courses and hand sanitisers are available for visitors.
Other leisure attractions at Soar that have re-opened recently include the Odeon cinema, tenpin bowling, Funstation and Prizestation amusement arcades, along with various restaurants and bars. The team at Soar has introduced new measures and procedures to stop the spread of coronavirus, including social distancing and hygiene procedures, such as hand sanitisers for visitors use. It includes a raft of other measures with floor stickers indicating a one-way system for visitors and staff training to ensure visitors stay socially distanced.
Visitors are also required to wear face coverings in line with Scottish government instructions.
David Lyon, marketing manager for intu Braehead said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone back to Soar at intu Braehead and everything is being done to make sure it’s a safe place to visit and work.
“Due to the measures we have put in place to protect everyone from coronavirus, the visitor’s experience at Soar may be slightly different from usual, but one thing’s for sure they will get the same warm welcome they’ve come to expect from us.”
