Playing at Mr Mulligans

We've visited all the Mr Mulligans courses apart from the ones in Basildon, Bournemouth, the indoor course in Milton Keynes, Nottingham and Tonbridge. We had planned to go on holiday to Bournemouth in April and would've played the courses there then.

The last Mr Mulligans venue I played at was the three-course space-themed centre in Birmingham last October.

Mr Mulligan's Lost World Adventure Golf in Stevenage

A visit to Mr Mulligan's latest Adventure Golf course.

You can't miss the entrance to the Lost World Golf!

Last year we heard about a new minigolf venue opening in Stevenage and Mr Mulligan's latest course - Lost World Golf - opened at Stevenage Leisure Park earlier this year.

We've been itching to get along for a game and earlier this week we had a round on the two nautical themed courses. We loved it.

Our crew of adventure golfers in Stevenage

The courses became the 685th and 686th visited on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour, and were the 403rd and 404th played.

Our group hit the Jungle Explorers course for round one and followed this with a game on the Ocean Adventurers layout.

If you press this button...

There is some excellent theming throughout the indoor Adventure Golf venue - not least the giant wooden submarine that sits in the middle of the two courses!

Local competitor Simon Hinton and the wooden submarine

What an obstacle/hole/feature!

The inside of the submarine contains a very very tough hole to play!

There's a real mix of obstacles and hole types and there's even a section of holes where you are plunged into blacklight - one of my favourite types of minigolf environments to play in.

Adventure Golf at Stevenage Leisure Park in Hertfordshire

New indoor Adventure Golf courses heading to Stevenage.

A brand new Adventure Golf course is heading to Stevenage Leisure Park in Hertfordshire. The 36-hole centre will have two 18-hole layouts with a nautical theme.

We've visited Mr Mulligan's Pirate Adventure Golf courses in Milton Keynes, Castleford and Woking. The Stevenage course will differ from the other sites as it'll be an indoor venue.

Revisit to the Hello Campers Exhibition at Stevenage Museum

On Saturday 3rd September Emily and I made a revisit to the excellent 'Hello Campers' exhibition and display at Stevenage Museum in Hertfordshire.

I previously visited the exhibition in July.


The exhibition charted holiday camps from their beginnings through to the heyday in the 1960's and 70's and also included a small section on Crazy Golf and Minigolf.




The exhibition has now closed, but if you're in the area Stevenage Museum is well worth a visit.

Along with Tim 'Ace Man' Davies I am a Curator of The Crazy Golf Museum.

The Crazy Golf Museum's aim is to show visitors the history of the game of Miniature Golf, collections of scorecards, tokens, badges, scorecards, flyers, balls, putters, games etc. and act as the worldwide archive for Minigolf and Crazy Golf ephemera.
