Crazy Snooker Pool Billiards Golf and Pit-Pat

A look at some of the stranger miniature golf and cue-sports crossover games we've played.



On our travels we've seen quite a few variations of hybrid minigolf / golf / pool / snooker / billiards games including Crazy Golf Pool and Pit-Pat, as well as some Crazy Golf obstacles that have used pool and snooker tables.

I first saw the game of Pit-Pat (obstacle billiards) in Vienna, Austria in 2010 - it's like Crazy Golf but played with cues

The last new minigolf course played on the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour was the pop-up rave-inspired art installation Crazy Golf course at Coal Drops Yard in King's Cross, London.

One of those holes was snooker-based.

Liverpool's Roxy Ball Room venue on Hanover Street has received a makeover and is reopening on the 27th August.

One of the new games to play there will be Crazy Pool.

In December 2010 we visited and played the final minigolf course of the year with a trip to The O2 for a game of Q-Golf Minigolf.

When we played the 'Q-Golf' layout we played with standard Golf Putters and Balls, although according to the website the concept is a mix of Minigolf and Pool.
