Adventure Golf at Star City in Birmingham

Replaying the Adventure Island Mini Golf course in Birmingham.

We recently revisited Adventure Island Mini Golf at Star City in Birmingham and found the courses have had some new obstacles added on a few of the holes.

There are also some new additions to the theming on the Hidden Cove Challenge and Lost Hut Trail courses.

There are a number of Easter Island heads dotted around the Lost Hut Trail course

The patch of 'grass' on the top of the ramp on hole 12 makes the hole even trickier

Hole 8 has some new obstacles on the green

Adventure Island Mini Golf has two 18-hole indoor courses and they were the 57th and 58th courses played on the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour back in 2008. We've been back a lot since then - I won the Adventure Island/Heart FM Open competition there, returning for the weekly Monday-night league where I was runner-up to three-times World Champion Chris Harding, and I was the co-course record holder with a score of 28(-8) on the Lost Hut Trail.

Check out the Adventure Island Mini Golf website for opening times, prices and further info.

You can find the course at the Star City leisure and entertainment complex at Adventure Island Mini Golf, Units 20/21, Star City, Watson Road, Birmingham, B7 5SB.

A nice minigolf welcome mat! The Crazy Golf Museum will need to have one of these!
