Minigolf in Southend on Sea - The Southend Masters

On 11th July 2010 we played two rounds at the Adventure Island Adventure Golf course in Southend on Sea.

The former host venue for the BMGA British Masters was the venue for the first BMGA Tour Competition I competed in - the 2007 BMGA British Masters - where I was 24th of 28 players, and the 2nd place novice player.

On this visit Emily and I played the Irregular Mini Golf Tour Southend Masters, with me coming out the victor with an 18-hole total of 43(+7) compared to Emily's 55(+19).

The Inca and Aztec courses at Adventure Island were the 14th and 15th courses visited and played on the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour back in 2007.

A new addition to the course is the Helicopter on top of the Hut!

Hi, nice pictures of the golf course but you say nothing about whether you enjoyed it and why or make any mention of facilities and parking etc. that might be of interest to future visitors. Can you please give us some more information? Thanks.

Hello Tania,

Many thanks for your comment on this blog post.

The course is good fun to play (both for pleasure and for competitions - having hosted numberous BMGA events over the years).

It's located at Adventure Island in Southend so there are all the usual theme park facilities there.

Parking - anywhere you can find a spot, it's not normally a problem in Southend really,

"Did I enjoy it?" - yes, I always (well more often than not) enjoy playing Minigolf!

All the best,


PS - If you're going to Southend, do check out the other Crazy Golf, next to the Sea Life Centre.
