On Sunday 24th January 2010 we headed to Sandwell Valley Park in West Bromwich to visit and play the 18-hole Eternit Miniature Golf Course there. It became The course was the 159th played, and 205th visited overall on the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour.
On the 19th April 2010 we heard from MMGC team mates Chris Harding and Paul & Owen Johnson that the 18-hole Eternit course had been scrapped, with a new Swedish Felt course set to take its place.
Following the Star City Open minigolf tournament at Adventure Island Mini Golf at Star City in Birmingham on Sunday 23rd January 2011 we headed back to the course for a look at the new 9-hole Swedish Felt B-Run Minigolf Course.
Over the road from the Crazy Golf/Mini Golf course there was also a sign for another Mini Golf course! This I believe is of the Pitch & Putt variety, and I've heard the course isn't too bad to play.

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!
