A Miniature Golf course at the Smallest Pub on the Planet

New Minigolf course installed at The Signal Box Inn, Cleethorpes.

In May 2011 Emily and I went on a tour of the Lincolnshire coast and the first stop off was in Cleethorpes. While we were there we managed to play two courses - a Crazy Golf and an indoor Adventure Golf. We also found a great pub called The Signal Box Inn, which just happened to be the smallest pub on the planet!

While there we sampled some of the cider and had a great chat with the landlord Alan Cowood. Telling him about our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour and our love of pub games he showed us the 'Games Room' at the pub. Following our visit I sent Alan a 9-hole Miniature Golf course to add to the pub's entertainment options and I've now received photos of the course's installation.

Due to the Minigolf course's portable nature it is able to be moved around the venue and with nine tricky Crazy Golf holes to master will be sure to entertain patrons of the pub.
