The old Crazy Golf course behind the Metropole Hotel in Blackpool is re-opening soon.
|The North Shore Crazy Golf course last August|
Blackpool Fulfilling Lives and Blackpool and Fylde Street Angels have come together on a new project to breathe life into the old North Shore Crazy Golf course in Blackpool.
The project will help homeless people in Blackpool by giving them a chance to work on the Crazy Golf course so it is playable and then staffing it for the upcoming summer season and beyond. It sounds like a brilliant plan to give people the opportunity to receive work experience, while also bringing a disused minigolf course back to life.
You can find out more about the project on the Blackpool Fulfilling Lives and Blackpool and Fylde Street Angels websites and social media channels.
We always enjoy visiting Blackpool and have wanted to play the North Shore Crazy Golf course since we first saw it back in 2009. We've been back a number of times since and it's always been so sad to see it closed. We're looking to playing the refurbished course on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour.
Even though we've never played the course we have collected a large number of old postcards showing the course over the years. Here are four of them.
