Mini Golf in London at Birdies Crazy Golf Club

Playing at a new London mini golf course in Waterloo.

On Tuesday 10th November we visited the latest Mini Golf course to arrive in London - Birdies Crazy Golf Club.

You can find the 9-hole miniature golf course tucked away in The Vaults underneath Waterloo station.

Birdies Crazy Golf Club is open six nights a week until the 20th December, with a round of Crazy Golf costing £9 per person, per round.



In addition to the underground minigolf course, food and drink is available from the Caddy Shack clubhouse. On our visit we enjoyed a couple of 'Glory Hole' cocktails there!

The loop-di-loop fourth hole, with one of the two bars in the background - they've got a good range of golf-themed cocktails on offer. The 'Glory Hole' was particularly pleasing!

We really enjoyed our visit and game of Crazy Golf. When we first arrived the venue was heaving and the course packed with Crazy Mini Golfers. Before we left I had a second round on the well designed minigolf course.

One of our favourite holes. We actually saw one player get their ball to stay on the top of the ramp, and another land in the area below the holes!

The course has a par of 23 and in our match-up I scored an 18(-5) to Emily's 22(-1). In my solo round I shot a 17 (or a 16 if you count the hole-in-one on the 7th hole as a -1!).

What an achievement!

The Birdies Crazy Golf Club course is nice and playable and I'd love to go back and try to better my score.

Birdies Crazy Golf Club is well worth a visit

It'd be a great location for a minigolf tournament too - perfect for any weather conditions, a tricky and testing course, fun obstacles, a bar, hot dogs and another bar!

The new London Crazy Golf course became the 672nd visited on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour and the 390th we've played.
