In among the haul of old minigolf postcards we found at the collector's fair in Stockport on Sunday was this one showing two holes of the Putting Green at the Charterhouse Christian Guest House in Teignmouth, South Devon.

We've been to Teignmouth on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour and played the Jurassic Adventure Golf course on the sea front.
Looking online it appears that the Charterhouse Christian Guest House has long since closed. In its later years the house was used as a residential care home.
We've played and visited a number of miniature golf courses at hotels on our travels, including those at the Thorpeness Golf Club & Hotel, The Imperial Hotel in Exmouth, The Victoria and The Belmont hotels in Sidmouth, The Imperial Hotel in Torquay, the Sutton Staithe Hotel in Norfolk, The Riviera Hotel in Weymouth and the Merlewood Hotel in Saundersfoot.
I wonder how many other hotels have minigolf or crazy golf courses 'hidden' in their grounds that we don't know about?
