Minigolf in Greater Manchester

A look at miniature golf courses in Greater Manchester.


There are a lot of options for minigolfing in Greater Manchester, with a variety of courses to play, ranging from traditional crazy golf to indoor minigolf to new adventure golf layouts.


We've been travelling to play minigolf in Manchester since 2009 when I won the Mini Masters and Mini Open at the Trafford Golf Centre. I also won the Chrizy Golf Masters at Piccadilly Place in 2012.


We moved to Stockport in 2016 and have continued to compete in events. Emily is the reigning Paradise Island Adventure Golf Open champion, while I won the tournament in 2018. I also won the DinoFalls Masters at the Trafford Golf Centre last year.

Other courses in Greater Manchester:

Over the years we've played a number of other minigolf courses in Manchester on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour. Some have been portable courses, while others have been temporary or pop-up locations.

There's also a grass Putting course at Park Square in Cheadle Heath, Stockport. This private Putting Green is for use by tenants and employees at the office complex. It's actually our closest course, but one we're not allowed to play.
