The latest Flip Out trampoline and adventure centre opened in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire last month. That too opened in a former BHS.

Visit the Flip Out website for more information.

Retailtainment

A number of shopping malls, town centres and retail parks are adding minigolf, crazy golf, adventure golf and other experiential entertainment and activity leisure offerings to their sites to attract and retain customers.

Crazy Golf at Duthie Park in Aberdeen

A look at the minigolf course at Duthie Park in Aberdeen.


My friend Pam Woodcock sent over these snaps of the Crazy Golf course at Duthie Park in Aberdeen, Scotland from her day out in the park.

Pam tells me the park is a fantastic public amenity and only half a mile from the town centre. We'll definitely have to give it a visit in the future as we didn't get to Duthie Park on our previous trip to Aberdeen back in 2010.

Pam and her husband Dave are BIG fans of minigolf and spearheaded a project to create a Crazy Golf course in Burray, Orkney. A project which came to fruition last year when they opened the UK's most northerly Crazy Golf course on the island.

At the end of this month the course will be hosting the first-ever Burray vs. the Rest of the World minigolf competition!

Minigolf Courses Played #171 & 172 - Codonas Aberdeen Beach

A visit to Codona's Amusement Park in Aberdeen and the two Adventure Golf courses there.

On Friday 14th May 2010 we played our 171st and 172nd courses on the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour.

Both were at Codonas Aberdeen Beach, the host venue of the 2010 BMGA Scottish Minigolf Open tournament.

Course #171 was the 18-hole Pirate Island Adventure Golf course.

Minigolf Reports – Codonas Classic & BMGA Scottish Open

19th May 2010
Press Information
For Immediate Release

Minigolf Reports – Codonas Classic & BMGA Scottish Open


Luton Minigolfers Richard and Emily Gottfried were in action over the weekend as they competed in events at the 18-hole Pirate Island Adventure Golf Course at Codonas Amusement Park in Aberdeen.

Codonas Classic Doubles Competition

The first of the weekend’s British Minigolf Association competitions was the Codonas Classic, played on Saturday 15th May.

The format saw teams of two selected via a random draw. Richard was one of the seeded players and was drawn with British number 47 Leo Kukielka from Cwmbran, Wales. Each pair played one round of the 18-hole course with both players’ scores counting towards the team total in the nine team field. Richard scored a 33(-3), with Leo hitting a 37(+1) for a total of 70(-2) which earned them second place, behind Oxford’s Michael Smith and Brechin’s Freddie Blackburn-Shaw who scored a total of 66(-6).

BMGA Scottish Open

The inaugural BMGA Scottish Open tournament was held on Sunday 16th May, with both Richard and Emily competing in the 29-player field.

The four-round competition was won by Birmingham’s Chris Harding with a score of 125(-19). Richard had a 72-hole total of 138(-6) which included scores of 38(+2), 33(-3), 35(-1) and 32(-4). Emily scored rounds of 41(+5), 35(-1), 40(+4) and 39(+3) for a total of 155(+11).

Richard said “It was a great tournament weekend and the course and venue in Aberdeen was excellent. I’m really pleased with performances and thought me and Leo did really well as a team to earn second place in the Codonas Classic. The Scottish Open was my 50th BMGA Tour competition since my debut in 2007, and although I didn’t win it, the ranking points from my 8th place finish have pushed me into the top-ten of the BMGA Order of Merit for the first time. Reaching the top ten is another minigolf career objective of mine achieved.”

In the BMGA Order of Merit Rankings Richard has moved up three places to a career best Order of Merit Ranking of 10th of 80 ranked players, with 2,206 points. Emily has moved up two places and is also now at a career best ranking at 29th, with 816 points.

In the BMGA Season Only Rankings Richard has moved up three places to be ranked 8th of 83 players, with 2,350 points, having played in four of the five qualifying ranking tournaments so far this season. Emily has entered the Season Only Rankings at number 50, with 365 points from the Scottish Open, as it was her first singles ranking event of the year.
