A look at a minigolf postcard from Skegness sent in 1946.
I recently bought 50 more postcards for my collection of minigolf cards and among them was this nice old postcard showing the waterways and pier in Skegness. Also clearly in view is a Crazy Golf course.
|The Waterways and Pier, Skegness. The Graphic Series postcard. Postally used on 14 August 1946|
The course in the card was on North Parade. On our last visit to Skegness in 2015 we found an abandoned Indoor Jungle 3D Mini Golf course at the Lost World Adventure Park. A world away from the course in the postcard that was on more or less the same spot 70 years before!
The first Crazy Golf course in the country opened on South Parade in Skegness in 1926.
