|At The Golfing Hole indoor Adventure Golf course in Swindon|
On Sunday 11 January Emily and I visited Swindon, Wiltshire to play our first miniature golf course of the New Year. The location was The Golfing Hole Indoor Adventure Golf course on Mead Way.

|Emily putts into one of the factory's machines. This one was really tough|

|There's a BIG minigolf loop-di-loop on one of the holes|
|My favourite hole at The Golfing Hole. Though quite what a green 'grass' minigolf layout with sandy bunkers is doing inside a 'factory' I don't know. Very crazy golf!|
The course was the 589th visited and 355th played on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour since 2006. In 2014 we visited 46 courses and played 28 of them.

During our match we played through each of the obstacles, rather than taking the easier line and putting around the lumps and bumps of the greens. Some of the holes in the pipes were easier to get the ball into than others, with a few of them causing a lot of frustration. The result of our contest was a draw, with a score of 54 each.

We've played quite a few indoor mini, crazy and adventure golf courses over the years and always like to see Blacklight / UV minigolf holes. The Golfing Hole has two holes that tick this box.
|Hole 13 leads into the blacklight area, while the tee-off point for hole 14 is inside|
|This hole was really difficult as the gap at the top of the ramp isn't much bigger than the golf ball|
|Playing out the UV hole|
|Emily tees-off inside the blacklight room|
|And putts out in the light of the factory|
An 18-hole round of minigolf at The Golfing Hole Indoor Adventure Golf course cost us £7 each. Full price details and opening times can be found on The Golfing Hole Adventure Golf website.
In addition to the Adventure Golf course the indoor venue has a licensed bar, air hockey, pool tables and table football.
The course was built by City Golf, check out their website too.
