Playing the new Swingers Crazy Golf course in Shoreditch.

Ahead of its full launch today (25 September) Emily and I visited the new Swingers Crazy Golf course in London on Wednesday 24 September.
|Swingers - a part of The Institute of Competitive Socialising|
It's a really good layout, with some good solid borders, good hole-in-one opportunities
|Holes 2 and 3|
|Playing hole 2 - a couple of ways to play the hole, but watch out for over-hit shots|
The course has a par of 21 - with some real par-3 holes, especially the 8th, which features a bridge, dogleg, elevated green and two pipes!

There's a real party atmosphere at the venue too, with DJ's playing music throughout the night and 'The Royal Shoreditch Golf Club' clubhouse has plenty of alcohol available - with drinking on the course encouraged!

Swingers Crazy Golf was the 581st miniature golf course we've visited and 347th played on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour since September 2006.

In our match-up Emily won with a score of 21 to my 23 after I scored a dreadful six on the tough water hazard last hole.
|I 'decided' to wash my ball on the last hole. For a 6|
The current course record is 20(-1) and is held by the course creator - Josh Ford, founder of the Winterwell Festival. We'll be back to have a crack at bettering that score.
|Playing hole 6. Noticed the Windmill on the drinks table - there's one for each of the nine holes|
