|On the first evening of our stay at Pontin's Prestatyn Sands we went to have a look at the Crazy Golf course|
After spending the morning of the 28 September playing for The Butler Cup at the Crazy Golf course just off the seafront in Prestatyn we headed back into the Pontin's Prestatyn Sands Holiday Park to make good use of the facilities on our Holiday on the Buses weekender.

As well as going swimming (in the very same pool they filmed scenes for Holiday on the Buses) and recreating some of the action from the film by riding around the camp on the big bikes, we had ANOTHER game of Crazy Golf.
The 9-hole course on the park is free to play with a £5 deposit required.
The course was the 582nd visited and 348th played on the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour since September 2006.
The layout is felt with wooden borders and some tricky obstacles and some incredibly tough second (and third) putts!
Set-out in a castle the course is well made and fits the space nicely.
In our five-player semi-pro contest on the course Brad Shepherd stormed to victory with a cracking round of 18(par)!

Seth Thomas was runner-up on 21(+3), with me third on 23(+5). Peter Jones and Emily tied in fourth-place on 27(+9).
Check out the Pontin's Prestatyn Sands Holiday Park website for more information.
The course sits next to what was once the boating lake that can also be seen in the film. That's now been turned into a Kart Track.
