Southend Pier Crazy Golf course

New Miniature Golf course at the end of Southend Pier.

There's more great news for fans of minigolf as Southend-on-Sea has a new Crazy Golf course!

The 12-hole layout is situated above the sea itself as it's on the world's longest pleasure pier!

The Southend Pier Crazy Golf course is a Swedish Felt B-Run type of course (this photo is of the course that used to be on South Parade Pier in Southsea, Hampshire) - a nice, colourful and tricky layout 

We love visiting Southend. while attending a family 'do' in the town back in 2003 the Adventure Island course became the first Emily and I played. That's three years before our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour began in Southsea. I also made my competition debut on the national minigolf tour in the town and we've also played the Arnold Palmer Putting Course on the promenade a number of times over the years.

The 'playable' Southend Pier Crazy Golf website looks brilliant too. Do check it out!

Southend Pier is undergoing a redevelopment and as well as the Crazy Golf course there will be a refurbed cafe, pop up shops and a pier postal service - so you can get a special postmark on postcards and other mail sent from the end of the pier. Sounds marvellous.

See the poster below and visit the Southend Pier Crazy Golf course website for prices and opening times. We can't wait to visit and take on the challenge of 'Olga the Octopus'!
