666

A look back at the 666th course visited on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour.

For the 666th blog post of the year here's a look at the 666th course we visited on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour - Treasure Island Adventure Golf in Bridlington.

The Treasure Island Adventure Golf course was the 384th played on our travels when we swung by on the 31st July 2015.

An old postcard from Bridlington

A look at an old miniature golf postcard from Bridlington.

One of the old postcards I found at the last postcard fair I attended before the pandemic lockdown was this one showing Bridlington Princes Parade and The Spa Boating Lake. It was published by Photochrom Co. Ltd. and is unposted and undated.

I'd guess that it's from the late 1920's or early 1930's.

Interestingly the minigolf course being played looks to be a portable layout.

Portable and pop-up minigolf courses are very often seen as a modern thing. However there have been a number of seasonal set-ups at seaside locations over the years.

We've really enjoyed our visits to Bridlington. It's a nice seaside town and we've had some fun games of minigolf there. One of those was a temporary course at the Foreshore Sands.

A crazy golf postcard from Bridlington

A look at an old minigolf postcard from Bridlington.


One of the very nice old minigolf postcards we found at the Stockport postcard fair was this one showing the Crazy Golf course on Royal Princes Parade in Bridlington.

It was posted to a someone called Richard in Grimsby from his Auntie Nellie. Unfortunatley the stamp and postmark are missing so there's no date for when it was sent.

We really liked our visits to Bridlington. Time flies as we were last there in 2015. We must return in the future.

Franky Stine in Bridlington

A Frankenstein's monster obstacle for Puttober.

A Couple of Putt's post for Day 24 of Puttober reminded me of the Franky Stine obstacle we played on the Crazy Golf course at the North Marine Putting Greens in Bridlington.

That course was the 383rd we've played and 663th visited.

While we were in Bridlington back in 2016 we also visited our 666th course at the Treasure Island Adventure Golf course.

It was certainly a unique course and one I got locked up in so I had to play a shot out of a prison cell!

Ham and Egging in a Bridlington Amusement Arcade

What a prize!

As a big fan of the 2p falls machines in seaside amusement arcades AND a ham and egger what better things to find in a Bridlington penny falls than these pieces of tat!

Ham & Egger Key Rings - now there's an idea for merchandise...

North Marine Putting Greens in Bridlington

On our return to Bridlington earlier this month we managed to play the two Putting Courses at the North Marine Putting Greens.

Ticking off two more minigolf course visits in brilliant Bridlington

Last July we'd played the Crazy Golf course there and we were looking forward to playing the grass courses. We weren't disappointed as they were great fun to play and there is a marvellous view.

  



In our match on No.1 Green I beat Emily by five, with a score of 20 to 25. I also aced the 8th hole - it's always marvellous to get a hole-in-one on a grass Putting course.

A second putt on No.1 Green

On No.2 Green Emily defeated me by one-shot - 23 to 24.

Emily gained leverage on No.2 Green to secure the win

If you're in Bridlington the three courses at the North Marine Putting Greens and Crazy Golf are a must visit.

High sticking

No.1 Green became the 395th course played on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour, with No.2 Green the 396th. They were originally the 664th and 665th visited overall.

Slightly bunkered on No.2 Green

The North Marine Crazy Golf course with its wacky obstacles and unique layout was proving very popular - we're glad we had it pretty much to ourselves on our visit last July.

Playing the Foreshore Sands Crazy Golf course in Bridlington

We recently spent a great weekend in Bridlington and unlike on our very brief trip at the end of last summer we managed to play the Crazy Golf course on the Foreshore.

It was interesting to see how much the area had changed in just a few short months! The photo below shows the 9-hole course layout as it was in July 2015, while the other photos show how it looked at the start of May this year.

Check out the short video of how the course looked before

The UrbanCrazy designed portable course has been moved into a smaller space, with the rest of the area next to the Spa Pavilion under redevelopment.







In our match on the course Emily defeated me by one-shot - 29 to 30 - after I took a disastrous six on the 9th hole!

We had a marvellous view of the course from our hotel window!

The course is open from 11am to 4pm (weather permitting) and is worth a play.



Bridlington's Foreshore Sands Crazy Golf course was the 394th course played on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour and the 667th visited overall.

Foreshore Sands Crazy Golf course in Bridlington

A visit to the Foreshore Sands Crazy Golf course in Bridlington.

On our trip to the seaside town of Bridlington last summer we visited the Crazy Golf course on the Foreshore Sands.

Unfortunately we arrived quite late in the day so the course, built by the team at UrbanCrazy, was closed.

The course became the 667th visited on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour.

It's certainly a bright layout and very different to other courses we've seen on our travels.

The temporary course was placed on the site of an old permanent 'Intergalactic' Crazy Golf course that you can see on some fairly recent postcards.

We can't wait to return to Bridlington later this year as there's lots we want to see and do there.

North Marine Crazy Golf in Bridlington

Playing minigolf at the North Marine Putting Greens in Bridlington.


Last summer we finally made it to the seaside town of Bridlington. It'd been on our 'to visit' for quite some time.


Unfortunately we only had a couple of hours there so couldn't fully explore - but we did visit the minigolf courses there. And played two of them.


The first we played was at the North Marine Putting Greens, where you can find two grass Putting courses along with a very interesting Crazy Golf course. It's a mixture of holes - with some of them of the Swedish Felt variety, and others are Fibreglass. There are also some unique obstacles dotted around the course.

The Rules






 

The Crazy Golf course at the North Marine Putting Greens became the 383rd course played on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour and the 663th visited since September 2006.

It was also the first course we've been to that's got a Frankenstein's Monster on it

The course is 15-holes(!?) and in our contest Emily beat me 36 to 41.

Happily we both managed to get a hole-in-one. Well, Emily got three in a row on the final holes!

The pair of Putting Greens looked nice too. We'll definitely give them a play when we're back in Bridlington.

No 1 Green

No 2 Green

While in Bridlington we also played the Treasure Island Adventure Golf course and had a look at the Crazy Golf course on the Foreshore Sands.

We're really looking forward to a return visit to Bridlington later this year as there's plenty to see and do there.

666 - the mark of the...

...666th course visited on the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour!

Earlier this year we visted the seaside town of Bridlington in the East Riding of Yorkshire. While our stop in the town was only a short one on this occasion we did manage to play a couple of rounds of minigolf.

Walking along the esplanade we spotted the Treasure Island Adventure Golf course. You can't really miss it as the stern of the pirate galleon is certainly quite a sight jutting out as it does from the row of shopfronts!

Emily was on a real roll in Bridlington, scoring five holes-in-one in a row between the previous course we played at North Marine Gardens and the first two holes at Treasure Island!

I managed to get the win 19 to 24 in our match-up on the ten-hole layout, with a six on the 8th hole doing Emily in while I scored an ace.

My victory wasn't all plain sailing though as I got locked up early in the round and had to play a shot out of a prison cell!

What an obstacle

Treasure Island in Bridlington is also home to a Pirate Golf Walk. We weren't too scared to go in, it was just that unfortunately we didn't have time to have a wander around it this time.

We really enjoyed our visit to Bridlington and will definitely be returning for more seaside fun and games in the town.
