It was a superb event played on a portable 5-hole minigolf course from UrbanCrazy set up in a brewery! More than 200 players competed in the tournament.

Clarence Way Crazy Golf in Camden

Revisiting the Crazy Golf course on the Clarence Way Estate in Camden, London.


Clarence Way Crazy Golf course in Camden, London

I was down in London for the day earlier this week and while having a wander round Camden I swung by the Clarence Way Estate to have a look at the Crazy Golf course there.

We first visited the course was back in October 2009. Emily worked close to it nearby Kentish Town until 2016 but we only ever played the course once - in 2012 - and only saw one other group playing the course - in 2011.
