Playing minigolf on a pier!
On Sunday 8th May 2011 we headed to Clacton-on-Sea for a revisit to the seaside resort, and also to play the new Adventure Golf course on the Pier!
The course became the 217th we've played to date on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour!
In our Irregular Mini Golf Tour Match-up in Clacton, I just managed to defeat Emily 48-50, with a two on the 17th and final hole!
Clacton-on-Sea was nicer than on our trip there in 2009. A lot of the area seemed to have been given a spruce-up and there were a number of new amusements there. It's well worth a visit.
We've only ever seen one other Minigolf course on a Pier, although that one - in Southsea, Hampshire - was unplayable as there was nowhere to pay to play it!?
Brighton Pier used to have a Crazy Golf course on it too, the sign was still there in July 2008 but the course had been replaced by a Coconut Shy!
Correction (09/01/12) - Sandown Pier on the Isle of Wight also has a Miniature Golf course on it! We actually played there on the 26th July 2008! The setting of it (an indoor 'Lost World' theme) obviously made us forget we were playing above the waves!
