A look at some of the Haven minigolf courses

Our friends Sophia and Karl Moles and their family have stayed at a few Haven parks over the years and have sent us photos of the minigolf courses they've seen:
- Mini Golf at the Haven Wild Duck Holiday Park
- Mini Golf at Allhallows Leisure Holiday Park
Arnold Palmer Crazy Golf at Haven's Caister-on-Sea Holiday Park

Our friend Gemma Woplin sent us photos of the Thorpe Park Adventure Golf course in Cleethorpes from her stay there in 2017.

Our friends and minigolf rivals Matt and Helen Dodd sent us photos of the Arnold Palmer Crazy Golf course when they stayed at the Haven Golden Sands Caravan Holiday Park in Mablethorpe.

Visiting Craig Tara

The Craig Tara park was formerly Butlin's Ayr. My family stayed there back in the 90's. I'll have to look through our old family albums to see if there are any snaps of us playing Crazy Golf there.

A train obstacle - the course was made by DK Fibreglass, I guess this obstacle dates from 1985

Emily and I visited Cleethorpes back in 2011. The seaside resort is home to a number of Crazy Golf courses - as is the Lincolnshire coast in general - and we did swing by the Thorpe Park Haven on our way to Mablethorpe. We're looking forward to a return visit to Cleethorpes in the future.

Check out these other guest blog posts from friends who have visited Haven Holiday Centres including the Golden Sands Caravan Holiday Park in Mablethorpe, Caister-on-Sea Holiday Park and Allhallows Leisure Holiday Park in Rochester.

Mini Golf at Allhallows Leisure Holiday Park

A look at the Mini Golf course at Allhallows Leisure Holiday Park.


Our friends Sophia and Karl Moles kindly sent us some great snaps of the 12-hole Mini Golf course at the Haven Allhallows Leisure Holiday Park in Rochester, Kent.

The 12-hole Crazy Golf course has holes themed after areas of local interest such as the White Cliffs of Dover and Killick's Windmill.

I thought it was a bit odd that one of the holes is themed on Adventure Island in Southend-on-Sea - in Essex!? But Sophia explained that the holiday park has a clear view across the Thames Estuary to Southend-on-Sea. I wonder if you can see the Crazy Golf course that's at the very end of the pier too?

There are two Adventure Golf courses at Adventure Island in Southend-on-Sea. In fact I made my tournament debut on the course in the 2008 British Masters!

The course looks like a fun layout.

There's no sneaking passed this loop-di-loop obstacle

Sophia and Karl have previously sent us snaps of the Arnold Palmer Crazy Golf at Haven's Caister-on-Sea Holiday Park, as well as the course at Minigolf Sport Club Sanremo in Arma, Italy.

Arnold Palmer Crazy Golf at Haven's Caister-on-Sea Holiday Park

The photos our friends Matt and Helen Dodd took of the Arnold Palmer Crazy Golf course at the Haven Golden Sands Caravan Holiday Park in Mablethorpe, Lincolnshire reminded us of this snap our friends Sophia and Karl Moles took while on holiday at Haven's Caister-on-Sea Holiday Park in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk a few years ago.

One of the obstacles on the Arnold Palmer Putting Course at Haven's Caister-on-Sea Holiday Park in Norfolk

It's great to see there are still Arnold Palmer Putting Courses dotted around the coast. They're definitely a great part of minigolf history.

Check out Haven's web pages for the Caister-on-Sea Holiday Park for more photos of the Crazy Golf course. They've got an interesting paint job on the classic windmill obstacle.

Crazy Golf at the Haven Golden Sands Caravan Holiday Park in Mablethorpe

Our fellow minigolf adventurers Matt, Helen and Emily Dodd have been on a trip to the fine county of Lincolnshire and found plenty of courses to visit there. With the Dodd's staying at holiday parks they were able to play some courses that we never got to when we first visited Lincolnshire in 2011.

This Arnold Palmer Putting Course was played in the Haven Golden Sands Caravan Holiday Park in Mablethorpe. What a great discovery.

Plenty of obstacles in the path to the cup on this hole!

Tricky

Even trickier!

The hole below is a regular sight on Arnold Palmer Putting Courses and is very often a good opportunity for a hole-in-one. But this is the first time I've the hole with additional obstacles!

There is another Arnold Palmer Crazy Golf course in Mablethorpe. The Hooks Island Crazy Adventure Golf was a 13-hole layout (12-holes, plus lucky last hole) when we played it in 2011.

Lincolnshire is a real hotspot for minigolf. Skegness alone has 102-holes spread across nine seafront courses!

The Arnold Palmer Putting Course in Skegness still has an old scorecard in use. It lists many of the Arnold Palmer courses that are long gone. A great bit of minigolf history

Cleethorpes (Thorpe Park Haven Caravan Park) - Putting, Crazy Golf & Adventure Golf

The Haven Holiday Park in Cleethorpes - Thorpe Park - is home to a Putting Course, Crazy Golf and Adventure Golf. However, we didn't play any of them on our trip to the town.

The site does allow 'Day Pass' visitors access, but at £10.00 each and additional costs to play the courses (and lack of time to make good use of the other facilities on site) we decided to head off to Mablethorpe and beyond, on the next leg of the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour.

On a side note - Petrol Station Company TOTAL and Haven Holidays are using Crazy Golf/Minigolf to advertise a promotion they are running!

Total Petrol, Haven Holidays and Crazy Golf

While in Milverton (between Leamington Spa and Warwick) this evening we spotted that the Petrol Station Company TOTAL and Haven Holidays are using Crazy Golf/Minigolf to advertise a promotion they are running!
