New Minigolf Course Opening in New Brighton

Brand new Championship Adventure Golf course heading to New Brighton seafront.

The Wirral seaside resort of New Brighton will see a new 18-hole Mini Golf course opening in a few weeks time!

The course is due to open in Kings Parade Gardens on the 11th of April 2013 and will feature miniature versions of famous holes from the 'regular' version of the sport.

Nick Ashfield from Championship Miniature Golf is the man behind the course and has a pedigree in course design and building having put together the 9-hole Championship Miniature Golf that was, until recently, in Manchester. The course was the venue for the 2009 Mini Masters and Mini Open tournaments in which I was victorious in! Note: Emily was runner-up in the Mini Open and Nick was fifth.

The new Adventure Golf course replaces the old 18-hole Crazy Golf course that had fallen into a quite poor state. On our visit in March 2011 we were unable to play the course as part of our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour as we were there too early for the summer season.

For all of the latest news, photos and details of upcoming events at the course make sure to follow Adventure Golf New Brighton on Twitter @playminigolf

Emily and I are looking forward to playing the course and competing in future competitions on the Wirral Peninsula's latest attraction!

Wallasey Beach Mini Golf - course visited but not played in New Brighton

On Saturday 19th March 2011 we also headed to the Wallasey Beach Mini Golf/Miniature Golf course. The Pitch & Putt layout looked very well tended and the course was open with a number of people enjoying the course. For more information about the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour please click here.

Kings Parade Gardens - Crazy Golf & Mini Golf - New Brighton

On the 19th March 2011 we headed to the 18-hole Crazy Golf course on Kings Parade in New Brighton, Wirral on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour. The course was closed as it was 'out of season'. We also found there is a Mini Golf (of the Pitch & Putt variety) at Kings Parade.

Ham & Egg Parade in New Brighton!

On the 19th March 2011 we headed to New Brighton, Wirral, to check out the seaside resort and search out some of the town's Crazy & Mini Golf courses. We also found the remnants of the Pier, and perhaps most interestingly, ended up on "Ham and Egg Parade"!



My first-ever Blog post here at The Ham and Egger Files gave an introduction to what a Ham & Egger is! New Brighton's Ham and Egg parade was 'famed' for serving Ham and Eggs to customers in its Tea Rooms, however the area gained a bad reputation for immoral goings-on in these "Tea Rooms", and the situation got so bad that in 1907 the area was demolished and replaced by Victoria Gardens.

"Laser Quest" Laser Tag in New Brighton

While in New Brighton we headed to the Riverside Bowl & Lazer Quest!


We booked in for a Laser Tag battle and were expecting to be playing in a group in a usual team based battle - perhaps pitting the REDS vs. the BLUES, the BLUES vs. the GREENS, the GREENS vs. the REDS, or even a battle involving the seldom seen YELLOWS!

However, the Party that was also due to play in the next game were 'stuck in traffic', which meant for the first time ever we were able to play a one-on-one battle against each other!

It was brilliant!


The Riverside Laser Quest is a two floor arena and as there were only two of us playing, the staff pumped the battlefield full of smoke to help add to the atmosphere, and aide hiding!





Richard Gottfried takes on Emily Gottfried in a one-on-one Laser Tag Battle in New Brighton!


In the battle between me and Emily (both playing as the mighty REDS) I won with 228 points to Emily's 201. Emily had a much better "% of shots on Target" score, with 6%, compared to my 3%. In total I blasted 689 shots!!!

New Brighton's 'Pier'

While in New Brighton, Wirral on Saturday 19th March 2011 we noticed there used to be a Pier there.


Coast Magazine is currently running a campaign that is encouraging people to walk as many of Britain's Piers as possible so they can raise funds to help restore the Grade II-listed pier in Hastings - which was almost all destroyed by fire in October 2010. On our last look at the Coast Magazine 'Pier Prom Tick List', of the 51 surviving Piers in the UK, we had visited 32 of them on our travels around the UK and the Coast! More details of our Piers-Visited-List.
