On Monday 21st September* we made the 671st visit on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour and played the 389th course since we began our Tour in September 2006. The location was London's newest course - Putt In The Park at Battersea Park.
|We'll play minigolf whatever the weather|
The 12-hole venue opened earlier this summer and is the second course from the team behind the Wandsworth Park Minigolf course.
In our match-up Emily defeated me by one shot - 36 to 37. I was incredibly fortunate that Emily was unlucky on the last hole or the margin of my defeat would've been much much worse!

|Emily on the 3rd - the wheels truly came off Richard's game at this hole!|

The Battersea Park course is three miles from its sister course at Wandsworth Park. That Putt In The Park venue was the 323rd played on our Tour.
For more information on the Putt In The Park courses, opening times and prices visit the Putt In The Park website.
When we began traveling around and playing minigolf there were an estimated 600 courses in the UK. This year we visited our 600th overall and 600th in the UK - at Swanage and Goodrington Sands respectively. On our road-trip around the South West of England we also visited the 650th course in the UK - in Padstow.
Having visited 21 miniature golf courses overseas means that the Putt In The Park course in Battersea became the landmark 650th we've visited in the UK.

* It was apt that such a BIG minigolf course visit would take place on the 21st September as the date is always Miniature Golf Day!
