|Crazy World of Minigolf Tour Charter Members Emily Gottfried and Christopher Gottfried at Treasure Island in Southsea - the location of the first two course visits on the tour|
Back when we started travelling around the UK we wanted to visit as many seaside resorts and towns as we could - there are over 500 and we've been to 193 to date.
|In May 2009 the 100th course we visited overall was at Pops Meadow in Gorleston-on-Sea, Norfolk. When we played the Crazy Golf course in June 2010 it was the 174th we had a round on|
|The 100th course played was Smugglers Cove Adventure Golf at South Shields, Tyneside in June 2009|
|The Masters Putting Green in Southport was the 150th course played when we visited in September 2009|
The first stop-off was Southsea to visit my little brother. While there we played the Treasure Island Adventure Golf course on the sea front and when we got home we found the excellent minigolf resource MiniatureGolfer.com that listed around 600 courses in the UK.
|In September 2010 the Curse of the Mummy in 3D indoor blacklight Crazy Golf course at Xscape Yorkshire in Castleford became the 200th course played on the tour|
|The 400th course visited overall was at Salthouse Fields in Clevedon, North Somerset in July 2011. The Crazy Golf layout was the 258th played|
In total we've visited 596 miniature golf courses and played 360 of them, some of them many times over.
|In April 2012 we visited the world's first miniature golf course - The Himalayas at St Andrews|
|In July 2012 the Minigolf course at Wonderland in Telford, Shropshire became a double landmark course as it was the 300th played and 500th visited overall|
|The second hole at Wonderland Telford was made of wooden planks!|
We've visited and played minigolf in each of the home nations, and so far 21 of the courses we've visited have been overseas - including locations in Finland, the USA, Austria, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden and Hong Kong.
In total, our travels have taken us to 458 different places in the UK, and that's not including the many many many little places we've stopped at briefly. And of the 193 seasides we've been to so far we've played, or visited, minigolf courses at 120 of them.
|The Swedish Felt B-Run style of minigolf at Mead Open Farm in Billington, Bedfordshire was the 350th course played on the tour, and 584th played overall when we had a game there in October 2014|
Where will the 600th course be...?
