|Spot Richard on the Pirate Mini Golf course at thecentre:MK...?|
Having heard that a Minigolf course would once again be returning to thecentre:MK Emily and I were excited to give it a play.

Last summer we played the Jurassic Mini Golf at the thecentre:mk. This year the team behind that course have returned with a Pirate Mini Golf layout.

On Sunday 1st of June we headed over to make the 560th course visit on the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour and the 12-hole Pirate Mini Golf course became the 336th played since 2006.
The layout looks impressive in its location in Queen's Court at thecentre:MK.

The centre-piece of the vividly coloured, well laid out and fun looking course is a 20ft moving Octopus!

The course itself is of the 'Eternit' type of Miniature Golf - with the addition of felt to the playing surface and a few non-standard hole types and obstacles.

The pirate theming around the site is really well done and the striking blue of the felt on the course makes a nice contrast with the green felt flooring.

It makes for a pleasing playing environment - even if the course is very tricky, with some tough second (and third) putts.

In our match-up Emily, the Eternit Miniaturegolf specialist (and British Women's Record Holder on the surface), beat me by one-shot with a result of 33 to 34.

Both scores were good enough to get us on the course Leader Board too.

The course costs £4.50 a round for adults and the second round on the same day is half price. I took advantage of this and had another round after we'd had a bit of a shop around thecentre:MK.

The Pirate Mini Golf course will be in thecentre:MK until the 29th of August 2014 and is open seven days a week. It's an interesting layout, has friendly staff and is worth a play.

Further details can be found on the Pirate Adventure Golf course website.

|Emily wasn't happy about that.|
In recent years thecentre:MK has been home to three courses, the other being a Crazy Golf course at 'The Beach' in July 2011.
This year the team behind the Pirate Adventure Golf course also have a Jurassic themed Mini Golf course at the Oracle shopping centre in Reading.
