World Music Day

Today is World Music Day.

We've seen and played some musical-themed courses on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour over the years.

The 529th course we played was Puttshack super tech mini golf at White City in London. One of the holes there requires you to play your shot over five drums. Emily aced the tricky shot.

My friend and world traveller PJ Goedhals sent me some snaps from his visit to the music-themed minigolf course at O'Learys sports bar in Norrtull, Sweden in 2019.

Last summer there was a music and theatre themed pop-up minigolf course at the Orpheum Theatre in Memphis, Tennessee. Our friend and minigolf rival 'Hacksaw' Jon Drexler was lucky enough to have a game there.

Our friends at A Couple of Putts in the USA let us know about a minigolf-themed song called Putt Putt Butt Butt by Koo Koo Kanga Roo.

One of the latest minigolf courses to open in the UK is Pop Golf - a pop-music themed indoor crazy golf venue at Boxpark Wembley in London.
