Looking at the many places visited and played on the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour so far I noticed a very interesting pattern has emerged!
The 1st, 100th and 150th minigolf courses I have played on the tour all have the word 'South' in them!
1 Portsmouth/Southsea (Treasure Island) - Adventure Golf (Victory Trail)
100 South Shields, Tyneside (Smugglers Cove) - 12-hole Adventure Golf
150 Southport (The Masters Putting Course) - Arnold Palmer Putting Course
It's also wierd as the 50th course played was in Tampere, SOUTH Finland!
Other South-y courses played include:
3 Southsea (Golf Links) - 9 Hole Par 3/Pitch & Putt
14 Southend-on-Sea (Adventure Island) - Adventure Golf (Inca course)
15 Southend-on-Sea (Adventure Island) - Adventure Golf (Aztec course)
16 Southend-on-Sea (Arnold Palmer Minigolf, East Course) - Minigolf
61 Southsea - Crazy Golf
62 Southsea - Putting Green
124 Swansea/Abertawe (Southend Park, The Mumbles) - Crazy Golf
The Pirate Adventure Golf course in Barry Island, Wales is also the southernmost Miniature Golf course in all of Wales!
But while I have seen them, I didn't get to play the Putting Course at Southwold, or the derelict and now demolished 'West' course in Southend-on-Sea. Nor either of the other two courses in Southport, at Hesketh Park and Pleasure Land.
What started as an exploration of the minigolf courses in the UK and around the world has exploded into all areas of the weird, wonderful and especially the unique. Sharing the great (and not so great) things we find, learn about and appreciate as we go!
