Playing a round on the pop-up Crazy Golf course at Walkden Town Centre.
|Shopping mall minigolf!|
On Saturday we made a short trip up the road to have a game on the pop-up Crazy Golf course at the Walkden Town Centre shopping mall in Worsley, Salford, Greater Manchester.
|The course was made up of separate square tiles with plastic edge pieces holding the greens together. It'd be fun to have a load of the tiles and create some wacky minigolf layouts|
The Crazy Golf course was set-up for three days as part of the shopping centre's Summer of Fun events.

We got there nice and early and had a clear course ahead of us.

In our minigolf match-up I got the win with a score of 18 to Emily's 21.

The course was the 924th visited on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour and the 526th played.
|Another minigolf course we never could've imagined playing when our travels began in September 2006!|
After our game we had a wander round the shopping centre as we hadn't been there before. As we walked past the course a few more times it was nice to see lots of people enjoying a game and were glad we got there early.

It was a fun layout to play. We've played similar obstacles, but haven't been on a course using this particular size and type of putting green tiles before. It was a nice surface to putt on.
It's wonderful to see miniature golf courses popping up in different places. Shopping centres are increasingly becoming popular venues for both pop-up and permanents courses, ranging from portable courses, to skill-based minigolf, to adventure golf layouts.

When our travels began back in September 2006 there were two indoor minigolf venues among the 600 courses in the UK. One of those was in Felixstowe and the other in Great Yarmouth. There are now close to 100 indoor venues, with more opening up every week.
We visited our 600th UK course at Goodrington Sands, Paignton, Devon in June 2015. There are now around 1,000 courses in the UK, with new courses opening all the time.
