Playing the GolfParc course at the London Golf Show
A bit of Pitching on the GolfParc Mini Golf layout at the London Golf Show at Earls Court.
At the 2012 London Golf Show my fellow Minigolfer Oliver ‘The Machine’ Florence and I had a go on the GolfParc Golf set-up and a nearest the pin competition laid out by the Golf Coaches on the course. In the three-hole contest Ollie picked up the win and was complimented on being a short game expert by one of the coaches. Kind words for the big man.
GolfParc is part of Factory Eleven, a business that design innovative sports equipment and in addition to Golf Parc they have a Cricket and Tennis set-up. The GolfParc layout was good fun and well made - it's designed for younger players so they Clubs were undersized for us.
The Velcro covered balls were a nice touch as it allowed you to stop the ball dead next to the hole with your shot (as deftly demonstrated by Oliver). The GolfParc equipment has been designed to help with the understanding of the fundamentals of Golf in a fun and interactive environment.
Back in May the GolfParc team ran an online Minigolf game competition to raise awareness of the Golf Parc kit.
