A look back at three minigolf courses in Oxford's Parks.
On this day in 2009 we played three Swedish Felt Mini Golf courses in Oxford.
We first visited the three Swedish Felt type minigolf courses in my home city on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour in December 2008. We got to play them on the 13th August 2009 at the start of a nine-day road-trip that took us around the coast of Wales. Back then you could find layouts in Bury Knowle Park in Headington, Cutteslowe and Sunnymead Park and Florence Park in Cowley.

The course at Cutteslowe and Sunnymead Park is now Crazy Croc's Mini Golf.
As far as I'm aware the course at Bury Knowle Park in Headington is still there.
Other places to play minigolf in Oxford include Gravitee Adventure Golf at the Ozone Leisure Park and Junkyard Golf venue in the Westgate Centre.
Earlier this year I found out there's also a minigolf course at the Fulbrook Centre at the Churchill Hospital in Oxford.
