A visit to our 600th minigolf course in the UK!

Having visited 21 courses overseas the 600th course visited in the UK was the 18-hole Beton-style Concrete Mini Golf course at Goodrington Park in Goodrington Sands, Paignton, Devon on Thursday 4th June 2015.

The courses is known as Quaywest Crazy Golf and from the scorecard is operated by Goodtime Leisure. It certainly lived up to its name as we had a good time playing the course and a pleasant and leisurely round of Crazy Golf.

The course became the 370th played since our tour began on the 30th September 2006 and was the seventh played on our tour of the South West of England.

The pleasing 17th hole

A round of Crazy Golf on the layout costs £4 for adults and in our match-up I won with a score of 39 to Emily's 42. It was very pleasing for us both to score aces on the 17th hole.

While having a wander around Paignton it was great to see the course on a postcard - and you could get 12 for £1! I had to buy some for my collection and to post out.

Overall the 600th course visited on our tour was on Sunday 31st May at the Jurassic Golf course at Santa-Fe Adventure Park in Swanage, Dorset.

Visiting and playing miniature golf courses came about from our love of travelling around the UK. We began going to different seasides when we got our first car in 2006 and after a trip to Southsea, Hampshire we found the MiniatureGolfer website where there were around 600 minigolf courses listed around the UK. Since then we've tried to play as many as we can.
