Minigolf in Cleethorpes

We were in Cleethorpes two years ago.


Time has flown by!


What a seaside.


There are five miniature golf courses there.

Arnold Palmer Putting Course in Cleethorpes

A look at the Arnold Palmer Crazy Golf course in Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire.

I've played a lot of minigolf courses on my travels and my favourite type is the classic Arnold Palmer Putting Course.


There aren't too many examples left in the UK, but the majority of those still out there are in very playable condition. They are superb fun and a real test of putting skill.

I highly recommend giving them a play the next chance you get to have a game of miniature golf.





One of my all-time favourite courses is the Arnold Palmer Crazy Golf course in Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire. I played it a lot on our trip to the seaside resort in 2018.

Talking Crazy Golf

A visit to the Arnold Palmer Mini Golf course in Cleethorpes.

Last May we had a brilliant break in Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire. The seaside resort has a number of minigolf courses, one of which is the classic Arnold Palmer Putting Course near the pier.

We'd visited Cleethorpes once before, back in May 2011. Unfortunately the course was closed on that occasion. Luckily the 18-hole course was open this time and I enjoyed a few games on the excellent layout during our few days in town.
