We hadn't expected to be visiting Witney, but as traffic meant our route changed we couldn't pass up the opportunity to visit the course.

Unfortunately we didn't get to have a game on it as it had already closed for the day. Earlier than the sign said.

Putting Green at Griffin Park in Porthcawl

A visit to the Putting Green at Griffin Park in Porthcawl.



Putting Green at Griffin Park in Porthcawl

On my way home from the Welsh Mini Golf Club's Doubles Championships in Aberavon I stopped off at Porthcawl as I'd seen there was a Putting Green in Griffin Park. Unfortunately it wasn't yet open for the season and the groundskeepers were working on a few other areas of the park to get it ready for the summer.


Griffin Park's Putting Green in Porthcawl

We have been to Porthcawl before, although only to Trecco Bay Holiday Park where we played Adventure Golf back in 2009. So it was nice to explore a new seaside resort and play in some new amusement arcades.

Dragon's Quest Mini Golf at Fontygary Leisure Park

Playing the new Dragon's Quest Mini Golf course at Fontygary Leisure Park in Rhoose, Barry, Wales.


Dragon's Quest Mini Golf at Fontygary Leisure Park

Earlier this month I heard about the new Dragon's Quest Mini Golf at Fontygary Leisure Park from the team at Greenspan Projects. Luckily I was in South Wales for the Welsh Mini Golf Club's Double Championship in Aberavon at the weekend so was able to swing by on my way home.

Look at the size of that dragon!

It was great to have a round on the 18-hole Dragon's Quest Adventure Golf course. It looks really nice and has some interesting features, most noticeably the BIG red dragon!
