Crazy Golf at Pop's Meadow in Gorleston-on-Sea

A look at the Crazy Golf course at 'Pop's Meadow Putting Green' in Gorleston-on-Sea, Norfolk.

Founding member of the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour Christopher Gottfried was recently passing through Gorleston-on-Sea in Norfolk and took a couple of snaps of the Crazy Golf course at the Gorleston Fun Park aka Pop's Meadow.

Sadly the course was closed on Christopher's visit

The 9-hole course was the 173rd we played on the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour in June 2010 - it had been the landmark 100th course visited back in May 2009.

Even with the addition of a variety of obstacles over the years - and the lack of felt/carpet - the course is still recognisable as an Arnold Palmer Putting Course. A cracking type of layout and well worth a play.

The course had a classic windmill obstacle on it when we played there in 2010

The Pop's Meadow course is one of many that Christopher has visited and found to be closed. Check out the links below for more details of the courses he and his wife Nina have visited since 2011.
