The Coronavirus (Ham & Egger) Files

A look at minigolf and competitive socialising in the time of coronavirus and social distancing.


I've been blogging about the world of minigolf since 2006 and have seen how the game boomed in the last decade.

The coronavirus pandemic has thrown a spanner in the works into the whole world and as such minigolf courses and competitive socialising venues have taken a hit.

I recently took a look at 'The next normal rules of minigolf' with a dive into how minigolf will be played after lockdown.

I've collated a number of blog posts from recent months, looking at the rise of competitive socialising, tenpin bowling and minigolf combinations, minigolf in a retail setting, technological innovations through minigolf scoring and loyalty apps, as well as the popularity of mixing art and minigolf.
