Finding another great scene on an old minigolf postcard.
I'm always on the look out for old minigolf postcards and I found a cracker at an antiques fair in Stockport today for just 25p.
|No sign of the Mini-Golf course on this card, except on the caption|
The Harvey Barton Viewcard shows the Penguin Park at the Mini-Golf Course, Newquay, Cornwall and was sent from Newquay on the 27 July 1970.
We played the course - now called Gilmore's Golf - during our two-week holiday around the coast of South West England back in 2015.
|Gilmore's Golf in Newquay was the 639th course visited on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour|
There was no sign of the Penguin Park when we were there, however the course itself is largely unchanged from its original construction in the 1960's.
|Gilmore's Crazy Golf course as it looked in the summer of 2015. Not much has changed since it was built in the 1960's. The course is something of a rarity on these shores as it's of the Beton / Concrete variety more commonly found in continental Europe|
|If you look closely you can see the ladies in the purple jackets from the other postcard in the middle of this card|
I'm sure the old postcard will be of interest to our friends over at The Putting Penguin minigolf review site.
