Rain Stops Play in Walton on the Naze, Essex.
On the 22nd of August Emily and I visited Walton on the Naze in Essex to play the Crazy Golf and Putting course in the town's Coronation Gardens in Bathhouse Meadow on Hall Lane.
Unfortunately, and following the theme of our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour over the last seven years, the courses were closed. To be fair the weather was rainy and it wasn't the best of days, but only we could visit a seaside resort in the height of summer and not play a Minigolf course!

We did have a good look at the 9-hole Crazy Golf course (it's a Swedish Felt variety of Miniature Golf) and the interesting looking 18-hole Putting course - it had some very thin lanes and greens that were raised at the back.

The pair of courses became the 534th and 535th courses visited in total on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour. Hopefully one day we'll get to play the courses.

The courses are open 11am to 5pm, seven days a week from the 20th of July until the 1st of September. The Crazy Golf course costs just £1 for adults (75p for juniors and seniors). The Putting is £2.50 for adults (£2 for juniors and seniors).

Back in May 2009 we visited Walton on the Naze and obviously missed the courses then!? We did however find and play the Hillbilly Shooting Shack on the pier and managed to visit and play a few of the other Essex Minigolf courses, including those at Dovercourt, Clacton on Sea (1 and 2) and Blake End, near Braintree.
