Our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour of England and Scotland in April 2012 saw us visit a total of 49 Miniature Golf course locations. Of these we managed to play thirteen of them. Unfortunately in Bispham, Fleetwood, Morecambe, Bowness-on-Windermere, Brockhole, Ambleside, Keswick, Maryport, Silloth-on-Solway, Helensburgh, Bannockburn, Stirling, Perth, St Andrews, Kirkaldy, North Berwick, Gullane, Dunbar, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Spittal and Sunderland we were unable to play the Minigolf courses there for one reason or another!
Below are a selection of photos from the course visits. You can see photos of the courses that we did play at a blog post here.
|We noticed the Crazy Golf course in Marine Hall Gardens in Fleetwood has been demolished since our last visit in 2009! The course that was there is just a stone's throw away from the other Crazy Golf course and Pitch & Putt, but we somehow managed to miss seeing them on our first visit to Fleetwood!?|
|Happy Mount Park in Morecambe - home to Crazy Golf and Putting Courses, but the Miniature Golf is no longer there|
|The Crazy Golf course at Brockhole used to be laid out all in one place. The Putting Course there wasn't yet open for the season|
|White Platts Recreation Ground in Ambleside - home to a Crazy Golf course, Putting Green and a Mini Golf / Pitch & Putt - we played the Crazy Golf|
|The Swedish Felt Crazy Golf course at the Lake District Coast Aquarium in Maryport is open daily from 10am-5pm. We arrrived at 5.10pm!|
|The Crazy Golf on The Green in Silloth-on-Solway is no longer there. It looks to have recently been dug up!|
|Driving through Bannockburn towards Stirling we popped into Brucefields Family Golf Centre and found a Putting Course there|
|In Perth's South Inch Park we found a 'semi-derelict' Crazy Golf course - it is hopefully going to be renovated in the future...|
|The Putting Course at South Inch Park in Perth, Scotland wasn't yet open for the season on our visit|
|The Adventure Golf course at Jumpin Jacks Children's Adventure Play and Crazy Golf in Kirkaldy, Scotland is open until 6pm, we arrived after 6pm|
|A sign at Beveridge Park in Kircaldy also said there was a Crazy Golf course there. We couldn't find one, but this are could be home to a portable type of course during the summer|
|While we played the East Links Putting Course in North Berwick, we ran out of time to play the West Links Mini Golf|
|The 'Golf Town' of Gullane had a Childrens Golf Course - a miniature version of the larger Golf courses|
|Dunbar's Lauderdale Park no longer has a Crazy Golf course, but there were some funny looking ornaments in the gardens!|
|On our visit to The Pavilion Amusements in Spittal, near Berwick-upon-Tweed, the Crazy Golf course wasn't yet open for the season|
|The last stop on our tour saw us not play the Crazy Golf course at St Marks Activity Garden in Millfield, Sunderland as we couldn't find any staff to hire equipment from|
Other Minigolf course locations we visited on our trip were in Bispham where we couldn't see the Putting Course that was supposed to be near Norbreck Station and North Berwick in Scotland where we found that the Crazy Golf course at The Lodge had been removed.
The trek saw us reach 297 played courses on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour!
