The Crazy Golf course in Abingdon's Abbey Meadows

A tweet from @TheCrazyGolfer highlighted a link to a news story in the Witney Gazette about £700,000 of cuts by the Vale of White Horse District Council - "Vale of White Horse District Council agrees £700,000 cuts".

Amongst the things that had been considered to be 'cut' were the crazy golf and pitch-and-putt facilities at Abingdon's Abbey Meadows! The Crazy Golf course there was the very first course I played as a child growing up in the town.

Stories in the Oxford Mail and the Oxford Times have more information about the proposed cuts and a photo.

I revisited the course as part of the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour in August 2007, when it became the 31st course played on the tour.
