Peterborough Minigolf

Playing the new Mini Golf course at Dobbies Garden Centre in Peterborough.

We had some lovely weather to play the brand new course in Peterborough

On Friday 31st July we were able to play the brand new 12-hole Peterborough Minigolf course at Dobbies Garden Centre. We'd been looking forward to playing the course since we heard about its construction back in June. We hadn't originally planned to be travelling north using the A1M, but the adverse traffic conditions on the M1 meant we had the opportunity to swing by and give the layout a play.

The course became the 382nd played and 662nd visited overall on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour.

When we arrived we saw fellow pro minigolfer Dave Gomm and his wife and opponent Liz Gomm finishing up a round. Dave joined us on our round. always nice to catch up with the pair

Unfortunately we didn't win a free game

In our match-up Emily beat me by one shot, with a score of 29 to 30. Neither of us won a free game on the lucky last hole, but I did get a hole-in-one on the 6th hole.

The Peterborough Minigolf team worked with course designers and builders UrbanCrazy to create the course and they've done a fine job. We've played a lot of UrbanCrazy's courses on our tour and always enjoyed the look and playability of them.

As a big fan of mini golf merchandise I had to snap up one of the Peterborough Minigolf t-shirts (£8) while I was there.

The Peterborough Minigolf course scorecard
The Peterborough Minigolf course scorecard is nicely done. There's a loyalty card to earn a free game after seven visits too. Hopefully we can win a free game on the 13th hole one day and add that card to our collection as well

Check out the Peterborough Minigolf website for more information, prices and opening times. We're looking forward to returning for some more games in the future.
