While on a recent trip down to London I swung by Puttshack at Westfield London. The course is a new concept in miniature golf and features four 9-hole indoor minigolf courses featuring new technology to show real-time leader-boards, video highlights and interactive holes.

The venue was in full swing on my visit with plenty of Christmas parties going on in the large venue.

I didn't have time for a round on the interesting minigolf concept on this occasion.

Many thanks to Adam Lueb, aka Retro Adam on Instagram, for sending me more photos of the indoor miniature golf course at Funspot in Laconia, New Hampshire. The snaps come a year after his last visit to the course.

The obstacles and features on the course come from Funspot's previous Landmarks of New Hampshire course which was open from 1964 to 2014. You can see a photo of that on Funspot's Facebook Page and YouTube Channel.

It certainly looks like my sort of place to visit as it's packed full of fun activities - the location is also home to the American Classic Arcade Museum! As the Curator of the Crazy Golf Museum I enjoy following ACAM on social media and especially like the #TokenTuesday posts on Instagram.

On our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour we've played indoor minigolf at Amusement Arcades in FelixstoweCleethorpesHunstantonBrean, and Whitby. Our minigolf travels actually began in 'old' Hampshire!

Since his first visit to Funspot New Hampshire Adam has been kind enough to send over photos of his minigolf course visits to Bermuda Fun Golf and Dragon's Lair Mini Golf in North Wildwood, New Jersey. It's always brilliant to see different minigolf courses around the world.
