495 Miniature Golf course locations visited to date!

Almost at the 'Magic' 500-mark Milestone on the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour.

With our latest miniature golf roadtrips taking us to the north west and north east of England, some of Scotland and a little bit of the south coast, our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour tally sees us sit at 297 minigolf courses played since the 30th September 2006! Of these I have played 295 and Emily has managed a round of minigolf on 270 courses.

In total we have visited 495 miniature golf course locations in eleven countries. Unfortunately 198 of the courses were found to be unplayable on our visit.

We’ve actually made 517 ‘visits’ to minigolf courses to date. This number includes return trips to play courses that were closed on our first visit and also includes trips to courses with significant changes made since our first visit. For example, at Sandwell Valley Park in West Bromwich the 18-hole Eternit Miniature Golf course was replaced with a 12-hole Swedish Felt Minigolf course. Another example of an additional visit is to a ‘b’ type of course like at Devonshire Square in London. Here the standard 18-hole course was turned into a Christmas-themed Crazy Golf in 2009.

A further type of ‘miniature golf game visit' in the list of ‘517’, but not in the ‘495’, are the visits to Pit-Pat courses/tables. The game is half-minigolf and half-billiards!?
