The Crazy Golfing part of our two-week road-trip around the South West coast of England began in Swanage, Dorset on Sunday 31st May with a visit to the Jurassic Adventure Golf course at the Santa-Fe Fun Park on the seafront.

The course became the landmark 600th visited by us on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour since September 2006!

It's a well themed layout with looped music from a certain film playing throughout your round. Check out the photos from our visit below.

In our minigolf match on the course I defeated Emily with a score of 34 to 39. I managed to notch up four holes-in-one and we both managed to score an ace on the tricky looking, but pleasing to play 18th hole.

You can find the 18-hole Jurassic Adventure Golf course at the Santa-Fe Adventure Park on Swanage seafront (Mermond Place or Shore Road, BH19 1DG). The cost of a round for adults was £4.00. As a bonus the winner of the game receives a medal! That's a real nice touch.





We really enjoyed our stay in Swanage. It's a great little seaside town with plenty to see and do.

Visiting and playing crazy golf courses stems from our love of travelling around the UK. We began visiting different seasides when we got our first car in 2006 and after a trip to Southsea we found the MiniatureGolfer website where there were around 600 minigolf courses listed around the UK.

Our travels have also taken us overseas and we've visited a total of 21 courses outside the UK, which means that the 600th UK-specific course visit would be made during our South West of England road-trip too! Watch This Space...
