A postcard of Hastings Mini Golf

A look at the Crazy Golf course in Hastings.

I recently bought 50 more postcards for my collection of minigolf cards and among them was this nice old postcard of the Arnold Palmer Putting Course in Hastings, East Sussex.

The Judges postcard shows the 18-hole Crazy Golf course in the foreground and you can just make out the grass Putting course in the background. The course on Hastings sea front is still recognisable today, although the area has had quite a few new additions - not least in the shape of two themed adventure golf courses.

The Hastings Crazy Golf course was the 39th played on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour when we were in town for the World Crazy Golf Championships in October 2007. We've been back a number of times since.

Check out the Hastings Adventure Golf website for more info on the three courses on the site.
