Krazy Golf Lydney in the Forest of Dean

Playing the Crazy Golf course at Krazy Golf Lydney.


Krazy Golf Lydney in the Forest of Dean

On our Gloucestershire, Worcestershire and Herefordshire road-trip we visited Krazy Golf Lydney in the Forest of Dean.

Krazy Golf Lydney is in a nice spot in the Forest of Dean and can be found just off the A48 next to Taurus Crafts

We received a very nice welcome and it was great to chat to Roger and Georgina about Krazy Golf Lydney and it's history.

There's plenty to do at Krazy Golf Lydney

The course is an interesting 15-hole layout, with a unique setting. We had a feeling the site was previously something else and this was confirmed by Roger who told us the area was once a miniature railway and model village!

This wavy wooden ramp was a tricky hole to play

Each of the 15-holes on the themed Krazy Golf Lydney course is based on tourism in the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley. You can see the full list of attractions on the Krazy Golf Lydney website.

Hole 1 has a Paintball Combat theme!

Interestingly one of the holes at Lydney is based on the Wye Valle Mini Golf course at Symonds Yat West! That Roman-themed course was the 193rd we played back in August 2010.

Krazy Golf Lydney became the 468th played and 787th visited on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour.

A railway hole!

This hole was interesting as the rules state that you must play your ball through at least four of the 'gates' before you could hole out

I got passed the four gates in one go. The second putt was a longish one though

There wasn't much room to manouevre for your second shots on this hole

In our match-up on the 15-hole course we tied on 38. However, as Emily scored a hole-in-one she picked up the win.

Emily was the Lydney Krazy Golf Champion - what a nice touch to get a certificate. It's proudly displayed on our trophy shelf

As well as the Crazy Golf course you can play Foot Pool, Air Hockey, Pool, Table Tennis and Table Football, and a selection of garden games.

This was the second version of Foot Pool we'd seen on our recent travels. The first was at Pontins Prestatyn Sands

Krazy Golf Lydney also has a Crazy Golf Pool table game! We hadn't seen or played one on our travels before!
