Crazy Golf at Coate Water Country Park in Swindon

Playing Crazy Golf at the 750th course on the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour.

On Friday 4th August we hit another big minigolf milestone as the 750th course was visited on the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour since our odyssey began back in September 2006.

The Crazy Golf course at Coate Water Country Park was in good condition and proving popular on my visit. It's an older style of course with nods to the continental European 'Beton' style of minigolf. The layout reminded me of the Crazy Golf course at Lister Gardens in Lyme Regis, with some very similar hole designs.

In my round I scored a 48 - 21 out and 27 in. I was close to getting some holes-in-one too.

After my fun round I had a go on the 9-hole Putting Green which was in excellent condition. I scored a 19.

I didn't have time to play the 18-hole Pitch & Putt course on this occasion, but it looked like a superb course.

The 18-hole Crazy Golf course was £3 for a round, the Putting Green was £1 and the Pitch & Putt was £4. Great prices. Check out the Coate Water Country Park website for more information.

There's also a miniature railway at Coate Water Country Park. I didn't have time to see it this time, but look forward to having a go on it in the future.

On the 17th September last year we visited the 700th course on our travels at Vickersway Park in Northwich, Cheshire. 28 of the courses we've visited have been overseas and the 700th visited in the UK was at Haigh Woodland Park in Wigan back in April.
