A visit to Joe Joe Jim's Crazy Crazy Golf course at Fletcher's Arcade in Cofton Hackett, Birmingham.
On Sunday 5th August we visited the 829th miniature golf course on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour and what a course it was!
|Our first game of Crazy Crazy Golf|
Joe Joe Jim's Crazy Crazy Golf course at Fletcher's Arcade in South Birmingham is a unique and quite frankly ludicrous minigolf course. If you're expecting to play a 'regular' round of Crazy Golf there you'll be in for a surprise.

The course and game-play has to be seen and experienced to be believed. It really is Crazy Crazy Golf! What's extra special about the layout is the inspiration the course owner's and designers have drawn from the local area, history, their business and their own interests.
|Hole 1 involved a number of 'putting' styles, including a rope pulley|
|This was the first time I've putted using a spirit level|
|The final putt was played with a normal club|
|My favourite hole at the course - Wac-Man!|
Fletcher's Arcade has been on the same site since 1920, with the Crazy Crazy Golf course an addition in 2017.

Emily won our minigolf match-up on the outlandish 9-hole Crazy Crazy Golf course with a score of 61 to my 64. The course was the 829th overall course visit on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour since 2006. It was the 791st course visited in the UK and the 491st we've played.
|Hole 1 - The Man Hole|
|Hole 2 - The Longbridge Job|
|Hole 3 - Two Tongued Toad Hole|
|Hole 4 - Middle Earth|
|Hole 5 - WAC Man|
|Hole 6 - Just Crazy Golf|
|Hole 7 - Rock N Roll|
|Hole 8 - Blind Fold Hole - yes, you do have to play it blindfolded. Your opponent has to guide you on how to play it, as the score you make is added to THEIR total!|
|Hole 9 - Whole Lot of Laughs - you tee-off while sat on Jasper Carrott's funky moped!|
As well as the Crazy Crazy Golf course Fletcher's Arcade has a number of great retro arcade games including Pac-Man, Track & Field, Space Invaders and Defender. It's well worth a visit.
Check out Joe Joe Jim's Bar and the Fletcher's Arcade website for more info, opening times and prices.
The arcade is also home to one of only two Little Pro Family Golf Games made by Bromley. What a treat it was to see it and have a play on it!
