What started as an exploration of the minigolf courses in the UK and around the world has exploded into all areas of the weird, wonderful and especially the unique. Sharing the great (and not so great) things we find, learn about and appreciate as we go!
Playing at a new London mini golf course in Waterloo.
Playing the loop-di-loop at Birdies Crazy Golf Club
On Tuesday 10th November we visited the latest Mini Golf course to arrive in London - Birdies Crazy Golf Club.

You can find the 9-hole miniature golf course tucked away in The Vaults underneath Waterloo station.
The first hole features real sand bunkers
Birdies Crazy Golf Club is open six nights a week until the 20th December, with a round of Crazy Golf costing £9 per person, per round.
In addition to the underground minigolf course, food and drink is available from the Caddy Shack clubhouse. On our visit we enjoyed a couple of 'Glory Hole' cocktails there!
The loop-di-loop fourth hole, with one of the two bars in the background - they've got a good range of golf-themed cocktails on offer. The 'Glory Hole' was particularly pleasing!
We really enjoyed our visit and game of Crazy Golf. When we first arrived the venue was heaving and the course packed with Crazy Mini Golfers. Before we left I had a second round on the well designed minigolf course.
A busy Birdies
One of our favourite holes. We actually saw one player get their ball to stay on the top of the ramp, and another land in the area below the holes!
Last year we visited the lovely little Isle of Cumbrae to play the Crazy Golf course in Millport, the island's only town. It's a great island to visit and just a short ferry voyage from Largs.
As a big collector of minigolf postcards I had to snap up this brilliant Valentine's "Silveresque" style postcard that shows the Crazy Golf course.

A look at the Crazy Golf course in Hastings, East Sussex.
Emily playing hole 1 of the course
The 39th course played on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour was the classic Arnold Palmer Crazy Golf in Hastings, East Sussex back on the 26th of October 2007. Since then we've returned for a number of minigolf, crazy golf and adventure golf competitions in Hastings each year and were recently in town again - this time for the 13th annual World Crazy Golf Championships.

Here's a look at the course as at October 2015. It's well worth a play and is a great piece of seaside heritage.
