12 years ago...

I won the Weymouth Open minigolf tournament on this day in 2008.

What a day that was!

The inaugural Weymouth Open minigolf competition was held on the 18-hole Pirate Adventure Mini Golf course at the Weymouth Sea Life Centre at Lodmoor Country Park.

I had a very good record in Weymouth Open events. As well as winning the individual title in 2008 my team-mate Chris Harding and I were the Weymouth Open doubles champions in 2011.

I was also runner-up in the 2009 and 2011 events and seventh in 2010. In the 2009 tournament Kevin Moseley and I were tied after two rounds and it took 4-holes of a sudden-death play-off to separate us.

The course was the 77th played on our travels. We've now been to 956 courses since September 2006.

I've heard that the Pirate Adventure Mini Golf course at the Weymouth Sea Life Centre has undergone some changed in recent few years. It'll be interesting to revisit the layout on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour.

Merlin Pirate Adventure Mini Golf in Scarborough

A visit to the Merlin Pirate Adventure Mini Golf course in Scarborough.

During our weekend away in Scarborough, North Yorkshire we swung by the Merlin Pirate Adventure Mini Golf course at the Sea Life Centre in the North Bay.

Unfortunately the weather and time were not on our side so we didn't get a chance to play the course.

The Merlin Pirate Adventure Mini Golf course was the 896th visited on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour.

We really enjoyed our trip and we're looking forward to a return visit to Scarborough in the future.

We have played Merlin Pirate Adventure Mini Golf courses before, in Weymouth and in Blackpool. Back in 2008 I was the Merlin Pirate Adventure Mini Golf Champion when I won the Weymouth Open.

Visit the Scarborough Sea Life Centre website for more information, opening times and prices.
