We're looking forward to playing the Forgotten Garden Adventure Golf and a visit to The Alnwick Garden - they've got a Poison Garden there! Intriguing.

Dinosaur Encounter Adventure Golf at Heighley Gate Garden Centre

New Jurassic Mini Golf course opening in Morpeth, Northumberland.

Our friend, and sister of superstar minigolfer (and all-round sporting marvel) John 'Big Al' Moore, Kay Heslop alerted us to a brand new minigolf course opening soon in the north of England!

The Dinosaur Encounter Adventure Golf course will be a 12-hole layout located at the Heighley Gate Garden Centre in Morpeth, Northumberland. It's scheduled to open on Saturday 5th March 2016.

The team at Golf Attractions are behind the new dino-themed course. We've visited and played their portable courses in Milton Keynes and Hatfield. They've also got a Jurassic Golf course at Bridgemere Garden Centre in Nantwich, Cheshire.

One of the temporary Golf Attractions courses has a Jurassic-theme. We played it when it was set-up in Milton Keynes in 2013

Visit the Golf Attractions website and Dinosaur Encounter Heighley Gate Adventure Golf Facebook page for more details and photos of the course as it builds towards the grand opening.

We're looking forward to having a round on the course as part of our Crazy Golf World of Minigolf Tour.

Driving through the town you can't miss the course as its sat right next to the road!

The Beaches Crazy Golf course is right next to Seafield Road in Seahouses. Note the historic plaque built into the wall - the public gardens were opened in April 1980

Each of the holes on the Beaches Crazy Golf course have a local landmark theme and name. The course is well worth a play, with some interesting, tricky obstacles and hole layouts.

In damp weather conditions on the 10 April 2012 we played a match-up on the course as part of our 'North West England, Scotland & North East England Tour Challenge' . In the contest I defeated Emily with a score of 36(par) to 45(+9).
