Revisit and Replay of the Windmill Theatre Indoor Adventure Golf Course in Great Yarmouth

Playing the indoor Adventure Golf at Great Yarmouth's Windmill Theatre.


The course was originally the 26th played on the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour way back on the 9th of June 2007. In that time two extra holes have been added. The first one is the 'Stars of the Windmill' hole, which features a 'Wall of Fame' showing all the stars that at one time or another performed at the Windmill Theatre.

As a big fan of On The Buses this was the best hole on the course and the most playable too, with Emily scoring a Hole-in-One.

On The Buses Stars Stephen Lewis, Bob Grant and Anna Karen all performed at the Windmill Theatre back when it was a theatre.

The second new extra hole is the 12th, which is the 'World's Biggest Pinball Machine'!? Both Emily and I won Free Games on this hole in our match!

The course claims to be Britain's Only Indoor Golf Course, which wasn't even the case in 2007!

All of the holes on the 12-hole course are frankly bizarre, and they even have a Christmas theme on one hole now!

The Beach Hole is very crazy indeed, it's the only hole I've ever played where you must Putt over sand!?

The old last hole, now Hole 11, is a giant Roulette Wheel. In our match Emily managed to score Green 0!

The course has been closed on all of our revisits to Great Yarmouth since the only other time we played the course (in June 2007 - review here). In May 2009 we noticed on the poster outside that it was called Grazy Golf!?

In our Irregular Mini Golf Tour match-up Emily beat me 25-29.
