Mini Golf in your village, town or city

A look at minigolf courses in the UK.

Jurassic Golf Bridgemere at the Wyevale Garden Centre in Nantwich, Cheshire
Minigolf is getting BIG!

We visited Crewe last weekend and ahead of our trip we had a look online on the off chance that there'd be a minigolf course we didn't know about.

We ended up finding three!

A few weeks ago we were down in Hampshire for a wedding and knew that there was a minigolf course at East Park in Southampton. Apart from that we weren't really expecting to do much minigolfing.

We ended up visited 18 more courses!

Do you know of any new courses opening up in your area?

Do you know of an existing or old course that we haven't yet visited on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour?

Are you planning to open a course?

Then, please do get in touch and let us know. We'd love to visit and play the course, or advise on your plans.

At Malkins Bank Golf Club in Sandbach, Cheshire - one of the three courses we didn't know about before last weekend

When our travels began in September 2006 there were around 600 miniature golf courses in the UK. We've now reached 890 course visits, including 39 overseas.

There are now more than 1,000 minigolf courses in the UK, with more layouts opening each week. Some are traditional Crazy Golf courses, others are more elaborate and themed Adventure Golf courses and there are also a number of Putting Greens and Pitch & Putt layouts we're yet to visit. Plus there are more of the new 'clubby' style of indoor minigolf / bar venues opening up in major towns and cities across the UK.

Paris, Hampshire - the Riverside Bowl in Andover has an around-the-world themed indoor Glo-Golf minigolf course 

We're looking forward to playing more courses on our travels. Our 900th course will be coming up soon, crazy to think it's rolled round so quickly!
