The Saturday of our Skegness Seaside Weekender happened to be the same day as National Miniature Golf Day - so what better way to celebrate it than by playing five minigolf courses in the UK's top spot for the game.

Skegness currently has 110 miniature golf holes spread over ten Crazy, Mini, Adventure, Putting and Pitch & Putt courses! The most of any town in the UK.

The National Miniature Golf Day Championship made-up four of the five rounds of the two-day Skegness Minigolf Championship that saw ten players take part.
National Miniature Golf Day is a quasi-official holiday that began in the USA. It takes place on the second Saturday in May each year.
If you missed National Miniature Golf Day this year don't worry. There's another 'Mini Golf Day' coming up - Miniature Golf Day is always on the 21st of September, which this year falls on a Monday!
