It’s been 21 years since “Jurassic Park” hit theaters, bringing (kind of) realistic-looking dinosaurs to the big screen. On Tuesday, fans of the trilogy got a look at the next film involving dinosaurs wreaking havoc on an island.
The first official trailer for the movie “Jurassic World” was released, revealing an all-new park where dinosaurs roam.
Yeah, it’s insane.
Everyone will clamor over how realistic the dinosaurs look and how futuristic the park is, but I’m interested in something else … something that wasn’t in the trailer: a golf course.

The film reportedly takes place on Isla Nublar — a fictional island off the coast of Costa Rica — where a new theme park called Jurassic World was built. Not only does the park house the prehistoric beasts, but it’s also the home of an 18-hole golf course.
Here’s how the film’s director and co-writer Colin Trevorrow describes the prehistoric-park:
Jurassic World takes place in a fully functional park on Isla Nublar. It sees more than 20,000 visitors every day. You arrive by ferry from Costa Rica. It has elements of a biological preserve, a safari, a zoo, and a theme park. There is a luxury resort with hotels, restaurants, nightlife and a golf course. And there are dinosaurs. Real ones. You can get closer to them than you ever imagined possible. It’s the realization of John Hammond’s dream, and I think you’ll want to go there.
Here’s my take on this: You can go check out the dinosaurs in the morning before heading to the course for an afternoon tee time.
If only this really existed.
A leaked brochure for the park shows a small layout of the course, with a short description. There’s even “full caddying service as well as on-site catering.”

It’s unclear whether the caddying is done by humans or raptors, but I wouldn’t rule out the latter. After all, it is “Jurassic World.”
The highly-anticipated film is set to hit theaters on June 12, 2015, with the off-chance that we’ll see dinosaurs playing golf in the movie.
