Mini Golf in Lyme Regis, Dorset

Playing the Lister Gardens Mini Golf course in Lyme Regis.

The 601st course visited on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour was the Mini Golf course at Lister Gardens in Lyme Regis, Dorset.

The 18-hole Mini Golf layout would be the second played on our tour of the South West of England and the 365th played overall on our tour.

It's a great course, with some brilliant views of the seafront and The Cobb harbour area.

In our match on the Lister Gardens Mini Golf course on the 1st June 2015 Emily scored a very good 36 - hitting one ace and dropping only one shot - to my 40 for the win.

We had to have another stroll along the prom before we left the seaside town on the 2nd June and on our walk back to the car I got my wish of a rematch. This time I won (38 to 40).

During the summer months the course is open from 9am to 9pm, and is just £2.50 a round for adults.

The course isn't particularly well signposted from the seafront, and can't be seen if you're below it. But if you're in Lyme Regis do check it out. As well as being called Lister Gardens the area is also known as Longmoor Gardens.





Check out the Lyme Regis Town Council website for more information, opening times and prices. We received great service from the staff on duty on our visits and Emily was very pleased to hear that her score of 36 was good enough to get her name on the Wall of Fame in the kiosk!

It was nice to be able to buy a postcard that showed the course. The Salmon Cameracolour Post Card shows 'The Cobb from Longmoor Gardens' and we saw them for sale in the Tourist Information Centre and the Post Office.

There's also a grass Putting course in Lister Gardens, but on our visit it wasn't set out to play. It looked like a two-tier course and hopefully we'll give it a go on a return visit to Lyme Regis.
