Playing the Landmark Golf course at Wolsingham Sports Hall in County Durham.
On the way up to Newcastle upon Tyne last Friday we called in to Wolsingham Sports Hall to play the pop-up Landmark Golf course.
The course had been set up for the week and was proving popular. Some groups were finishing their rounds as we arrived and so we had a clear run at the layout.

We received a nice welcome at the leisure centre and from the chap at Landmark Golf. After Ian from the course had explained the rules and tee-off points we set off on our trip around the world in 9-holes.

We've played a number of fibreglass courses on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour and this was certainly one of, if not, the best so far. We really liked the corner pieces that allowed for rebound skill shots to be played.

In our match-up I managed to secure the win with a round of 18 to Emily's 22.

We've been following Landmark Golf on social media for a while and it was nice we were able to time the trip to Newcastle with one of the Landmark Golf events.

The Landmark Golf course was the 919th visited and 525th played on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour.
|Hole 1 - Big Ben in London|
|Hole 2 - the Tyne Bridge in Newcastle upon Tyne|
|Hole 3 - Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower|
|Or is it the Blackpool Tower?|
|Hole 4 - the Great Wall of China|
|Hole 5 - Egyptian pyramids|
|Hole 6 - the Leaning Tower of Pisa|
|Hole 7 - the Brooklyn Bridge and Statue of Liberty|
|Hole 8 - some large tools!|
|Hole 9 - the Taj Mahal|
It was really nice to see a portable minigolf course set-up indoors at a sports hall. As we were leaving another couple of groups came in to play. It'd be brilliant if more leisure centres and sports halls had pop-up events like the one in Wolsingham.

Speaking with Ian from Landmark Golf he told us that they create a number of different configurations with the course and obstacles and so the layout can be different each time. They've also got one of the 'letters' Crazy Golf courses which spells CRAZY GOLF when set-up. Hopefully we'll get to have another game of Landmark Golf in the future.
