For Immediate Release
Miniature Golfers Launch ‘The Crazy Golf Museum’
Two of the premier miniature golfers in the UK have joined forces to create The Crazy Golf Museum. Tim 'Ace Man' Davies and Richard 'Squire' Gottfried run the most visited websites and blogs on the subject of minigolf and crazy golf. The natural progression of this is to bring together all the information gathered over the years to create the World's First Virtual Crazy Golf Museum.
Tim and Richard’s joint goal is to create a Virtual Crazy Golf Museum online and then create a physical Crazy Golf Museum showing visitors the history of the game, collections of scorecards, tokens, badges, scorecards, flyers, balls, putters, games etc. and acting as the worldwide archive for Miniature Golf and Crazy Golf ephemera.
The Crazy Golf Museum’s ‘Curators’ have a vast archive built up over their many years playing the game, and are keen to enhance this with donations to help grow and support the collection in the future. The Virtual Crazy Golf Museum can be viewed at www.crazygolfmuseum.info
Tim 'Ace Man' Davies said of the launch “Crazy Golf has been at the forefront of sporting innovation since its conception. I'm enthused that we will be able to showcase the people's sport and its development to a worldwide audience.”
Richard 'Squire' Gottfried said “I’m really pleased that The Crazy Golf Museum is launching. The pooling of our minigolfing resources from our many years of playing the game will be a great resource for anyone who’s ever played, visited a course, or is into traditional pastimes. It’s going to be a great adventure in expanding the collection and setting up The Crazy Golf Museum.”
