Castaway Island Mini Golf replaced the 9-hole and 18-hole Arnold Palmer Putting courses on the promenade. We visited in July 2016 and the course became the 693rd on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour.

The Crazy World of Minigolf Tour

Christopher and his family have visited 37 courses on their branch of the tour, 26 of those have been unique to them. Emily and I have visited 956 courses on the main tour.

Christopher has been to six courses in 2020. He revisited the indoor adventure golf course at The Windmill Theatre in Great Yarmouth too.

We've been to a total of 46 courses in 2020, with 15 of those being new courses visited. We've swung by eight new courses in the time of coronavirus.

We've got 40 of the original 600 we set out to visit left and a lot of new courses to play at too!

Together we've been to 982 courses since the 30th September 2006.

The Arnold Palmer Putting Courses in Great Yarmouth

A look at the lost Arnold Palmer Putting Courses in Great Yarmouth.


On our last visit to Great Yarmouth in Norfolk back in July 2016 we swung by Castaway Island Mini Golf.

The new course replaced the 9-hole and 18-hole Arnold Palmer Putting courses on the promenade.

Those old courses were the 22nd and 23rd courses played on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour in June 2007.

We're looking forward to our next visit to the seaside resort. It'll be brilliant to be back to see what's changed and what's stayed the same.

Castaway Island Mini Golf in Great Yarmouth

On Friday 15th July we were in Great Yarmouth for the first time in a few years and got to have a look at the new Castaway Island Mini Golf course that replaced the 9-hole and 18-hole Arnold Palmer Putting courses on the promenade.






The two courses that used to be on the site were the 22nd and 23rd courses played on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour back in June 2007.

The old anchor is still part of the new course

The new Castaway Island Mini Golf course became the 693rd visited on our travels since September 2006.
