Putt In The Park Mini Golf

We played Putt In The Park Mini Golf at Battersea Park in London five years ago today.

The course was the 650th we visited in the UK and 671st overall.

We've now been to 956 courses since 2006.

The first Putt In The Park course we played was in Wandsworth Park, London in 2013.

We're yet to play Putt In The Park in Acton Park, London and Colchester, Essex.

How times change!

We also visited The Masters Putting Green at King's Gardens while we were in Southport. The excellent 18-hole course was really really really busy so we didn't have time for a game. Here's a video of me scoring a hole-in-one there on a previous visit.

Pitch & Putt miniature golf course in Southport

A look at the Pitch & Putt miniature golf course in Southport.

We had a look at the Pitch & Putt golf course while in Southport on Miniature Golf Day.

It looked quite different to when we first visited it in October 2016.

I wonder whether the course opened this season, or if it closed earlier in the year than previously as it looked quite overgrown

The Masters Putting Green in Southport

A revisit to The Masters Putting Green in Southport.


The Masters Putting Green in Southport

Last Saturday we had a wonderful day out in Southport and it was brilliant to see so many people playing The Masters Putting Green at King's Gardens.


The Masters Putting Green in Southport

The Masters Putting Green in Southport was the 150th course we played on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour. We've revisited the course in October and November 2016, and January and October 2018.

The course was so busy this time that we didn't have time to queue up to play a round. We did however have a game on the Crazy Golf course at Southport's Botanic Gardens to celebrate Miniature Golf Day.

We'd first visited the course in November 2016 when it became the 717th visited on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour. As it was out of season we didn't get a game on it that time.


The weather was brilliant on Saturday and luckily the course was open so it became the 528th played on our travels.

We've now visited 925 courses since September 2006. Five of those have been in Southport.


The Botanic Gardens Crazy Golf course is the sister course to the one in the town's Hesketh Park. We first visited that course in September 2009 and finally played it in October 2016.


We really enjoyed our visit to the Botanic Gardens and the Crazy Golf course. They are worth a visit if you're in town.
