Over the years we've played some strange crazy golf courses in weird locations and on Saturday 22nd July we were able to add another oddity to our list as we played a round on the miniature golf course at Sutton Farm Cheshire. The farm is at Sutton Weaver Village near Runcorn, Cheshire.

What made the fun experience strange was that the course itself is located at what was once a Golf Driving Range but is now part of the farm and is being used as a dog training centre! Another first for us on our travels.
|The course was the 439th we've played|
When we arrived we thought the visit was going to be another to add to the 'unplayable' files, or worse the course may have been completely removed. We spotted three of the holes and then, through an archway in the tall hedge spotted other holes. As the course layout looked unlike anything we'd seen before we had to have a game on it. We spoke to the man there, Mike, who told us about the site and that we were welcome to have a game. After grabbing our sticks we jumped on the course for a very fun round of crazy golf.

The course itself is a miniature version of the 'eternit' format of the game. It's obviously seen better days, but was still quite playable.
We even shot some aces during our game! Incredibly I played the flat loop hole better than I have done on any previous occasion - including when I've had to tackle the obstacle in international tournaments!
In our match to contest the Sutton Weaver Village Classic title I picked up the win 20 to 22.
The course was the first we played on a day out which also included visits to the indoor Adventure Golf course at Cheshire Oaks, an abandoned Crazy Golf course at Higher Bebington Recreation Ground near Birkenhead, and Championship Adventure Golf in New Brighton!
