PARTY PURPOSE with a

Congo River Golf, Clearwater When we arrived at Congo River Golf to celebrate our son’s 10th birthday we were very excited. We were eager for him and his friends to follow in the footsteps of African Congo explorers Henry Stanley and David Livingstone. We were greeted by our Adventure Guide Mark. He was assisted by Jodi and Sue. He welcomed us to the party area where we greeted our guests as they arrived. We passed out tokens for the Arcade to each child while we waited for the entire group to form. Who doesn’t love an arcade! When the tokens were exhausted and trinkets won and the final attempt was made to grab a toy in the claw game we headed to the area where the alligators live.

We listened to the sounds of African music and wild animals as Mark gave us directions on how to feed the alligators. We paired up the kids with a bag of food and a fishing pole with a special clip to hold their dinner. Most of the alligators were very easy to feed.

you notes since there was still much more to do. We washed our hands and journeyed to the party area to feed our own “little alligators”. We fueled up and headed off to the next part of our journey: The 18 hole Adventure Golf Course. Each child chose a golf club and a colored ball. We divided the kids up into groups of 3-4 and staggered the start at the first few holes. Parents walked with each group and recorded the scores of each child on a scorecard as they journeyed through the course. On the way each team was challenged to play the Exploration Game. They had to find a Shield, Hat, Snake, Canoe, Mask and Spear. All of these lost
