The final course on our BIG minigolf road-trip was a Crazy Adventure Golf layout

Like our last minigolfing road-trip this one also began with a stop-off at a garden centre in Staffordshire to play minigolf. In fact, this trip saw us top and tail our journey by playing courses at two Wyevale Garden Centres!

This time last year we reached 815 course visits after a Bank Holiday weekend away in Suffolk.

When our travels began in 2006 there were around 600 courses in the UK. We're now nearing the next BIG minigolf milestone of 900 courses visited. Where will it be...?
