On Friday 26th February we visited the 676th course on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour when we headed to the Plonk Golf course that is set-up in a marquee in the giant beer garden of the Duke of Edinburgh pub in Brixton, London.

The course was the 392nd played on our tour since September 2006.

We were joined on this leg of the tour by Swedish minigolf legend Hans Olofsson - a winner of multiple tournaments around the world - and miniature golf professional Andreas Sollman who were on a short trip to the UK.

In our match-up Emily won with a round of 20, including one ace. I was runner-up with a round of 21, aceing the first hole. Hans was the bronze medallist shooting a 23, with Andreas taking home the wooden spoon after scoring a 29.

There is certainly talk of a rematch!

|Hole 8 looked like a great hole-in-one opportunity. It'll need a bit more practice to make the shot though|

|The 6th hole has a classic Plonk Golf volcano on it. It's a very tall minigolf volcano indeed!|
It's always great to see new minigolf courses opening in London. Until fairly recently there was a real dearth of places to play Crazy Golf in the capital, but this is certainly changing for the better.

|The course is well made and sturdy. It looks good too|
