Miniature Crazy Golf at Melbourn Village Fete - Crazy World of Minigolf Tour - Course Visit #179
On Saturday 26th June 2010 I headed to Melbourn Village Fete in Cambridgeshire as I had heard that there was going to be a Crazy Golf attraction there!
And there was. It was a 9-hole portable, carpet on wood base set-up, with some tricky obstacles.
I had two rounds at a pound a go, scoring a 20(+2) and an 18(par).
Very nice and friendly course owners who tipped me off about their other 9-hole crazy golf course that was set-up that very same day across Cambridgeshire in the village of Swavesey (near Over), at the Village Festival Fun Day!
Also at the Fete I had a go on a plastic crossbow shooting stall, scoring 150 points - 50 shy of the top scores. And I also played the Melbourn Village Bowls Club 'Target Bowls Challenge' - scoring 0 points from my three attempts (12 bowls) ha ha.
The Melbourn area is also home to three (permanent) minigolf courses (and a Putting Green), one is at Kingsway Golf Centre, another is at Whaddon Golf Centre, and the final one is a 4-hole Crazy Golf course at The Dolphin Pub. It's no Hastings, Great Yarmouth, or Blackpool, but Melbourn, Cambridgeshire certainly has a lot of minigolf courses for such a tiny village!
