The layout was the second miniature golf course we visited, and 695th overall on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour, when we moved to Cheadle Hulme back in 2016.

Visit the Bruntwood Park Pitch & Putt website for more information.

Social distancing minigolf

The Bruntwood Park Pitch & Putt course was the first place saw social distancing measures in place in person. That was in May last year.

A look back at 2020

The last course we swung by in 2020 was the grass Putting course at Park Square in Cheadle Heath on the 29th December.

Before the first national lockdown hit and our out-of-home putting was paused we'd visited 948 courses since September 2006.

We had a very strong start to the year and visited 20 courses in the first 20 days of 2020.

We were still able to visit a total of 46 courses in 2020, including revisits. 15 of them were new layouts to us. We've been able to visit eight courses during the pandemic (March to December 2020), playing two of them.

We've now been to a total of 956 courses on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour.

We've visited Walton Hall and Gardens in Warrington a couple of times on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour.


The first time was to play the old Crazy Golf course and Putting Green back in 2009.


The second time was in 2016 when we played the new Adventure Golf course.

Next time we'll have to have a go on the Pitch and Putt course there.

Pitch & Putt at Appley Park in Ryde, Isle of Wight

Looking for, but not finding, the Pitch & Putt course at Appley Park in Ryde.


Back in October 2016 we revisited the Isle of Wight on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour.


Our first stop was to the seaside town of Ryde where we had a look at the out of season Pirate Adventure Golf course at Peter Pan's Funfair and Amusements on the Esplanade.


We then headed towards Puckpool Park to play the Crazy Golf course there.

En route we passed through Appley Park and saw a sign for a Pitch & Putt course. However we couldn't find it.

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

Only the 'F' remains on the GOLF sign atop the old Public Conveniences next to the course. All the letters were there the last time we visited
