On our day trip to Southend on Sea we revisited the 18-hole Arnold Palmer Mini Golf course on the Esplanade.
|The signage at the course has been updated|
The course was originally the 16th played on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour back in March 2007. We've returned a number of times since then and it's always interesting to see the changes made to the course.

On our first visit the remnants of the West course could still be seen. It looks like this now.
|There used to be another Arnold Palmer Putting course on this spot|
The East course has been refurbished since our last visit and it plays very nicely indeed.
|It's always nice to see a high quality scorecard|
During our visit we played the Southend Arnold Palmer Classic competition where I picked up my second win of the day, with Chris Jones runner-up for a second time too. Gareth Holmes was third in the 12-player contest.
