On our mini-tour of the South Coast between Hastings and Worthing on Sunday 15th May 2011 we made a revisit to the excellent 18-hole Splash Point Minigolf Course in Worthing, West Sussex.
Unfortunately we were just a little too late to have a round, but we did have a nice chat to course co-owner (and fellow BMGA Tour Pro) Peter Emmerson.
The course has had a few changes/additions made since it opened last year, including:
- A loop-the-loop has been added to hole 5
- Hole 12 now has two new rocks and a new ace line
- The rock on hole 15 has now moved to make the tee shot harder
- Hole 18 has a new rock making the direct route to the hole extremely hard.
The course record stands at 29.
When we played the course last year it became the 181st played on the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour!
Last July I was runner-up in the BMGA British Matchplay Championships held at the course.

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!
