Adventure Golf in Littlehampton's Norfolk Gardens

A revisit to the miniature golf courses in Littlehampton.

While in West Sussex for the Splash Point Open minigolf tournament at the course in Worthing we stayed over in East Preston so that we could revisit nearby Littlehampton.

The course has some nice views of the sea too

I first visited the seaside resort in 2012 when I found all of the courses to be closed, while on a revisit in 2014 we managed to play Pit-Pat at Western Putting on Banjo Road and the Sharksville Adventure Golf course at Harbour Park.

On Saturday 25th July we managed to play the Adventure Golf course at Norfolk Gardens. The holes there are MASSIVE!

Look how loooooooong the first hole is!

In our match-up we drew with scores of 29.

The course became the 381st played on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour and we've now visited 661 in total. Check out the photos below to see some of the interesting holes.

A little bit of clever editing

Looking back through our tour records I noticed that the Littlehampton course is very similar in design and build to the Adventure Golf course in Scarborough - 55th course we played.

Hopefully on our next visit we'll have more time, and better weather, so we can get to play the Swedish Felt Crazy Golf and grass Putting courses there.

We noticed that the Swedish Felt Mini Golf course at Western Putting has some new felt. Note the Pit-Pat course standing in the middle of the Crazy Golf layout

There's also a Pitch & Putt course at Norfolk Gardens. And a Miniature Railway!

Hopefully we'll have time for a go on the train next time we're in town

Many of the minigolf courses and leisure facilities in Littlehampton (and nearby Bognor Regis) are operated by Inspire Leisure. We've always found them in good condition and received very good service. Check out the Inspire Leisure website for more info.
