Minigolf and tenpin bowling

Where to find minigolf and tenpin bowling entertainment centres.


Traditionally the two leisure activities have been quite separate and distinct, with people choosing to do either one or other and most operators running either a minigolf course or tenpin bowling alley.

With the boom in the popularity of minigolf and the growth in new courses, a number of tenpin bowling centres have added minigolf, crazy golf and adventure golf courses.

We're fans of both games and we've been to quite a few places on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour that have both entertainment options.
