It became the 802nd course visited overall on our tour, and the 33rd overseas. It's a nice looking Swedish Felt minigolf course, but was unplayable because of the snowy conditions at the time of our visit.

National 7-Eleven Day

Today is National 7-Eleven Day.


A 7-Eleven store in Stockholm, Sweden

7-Eleven convenience stores celebrate National 7-Eleven Day on when else but the 11th July.

A 7-Eleven store in Stockholm, Sweden
We were surprised to see a number of 7-Eleven stores in Stockholm on our last trip there in 2018. We'd only ever seen them in the USA before that

Normally customers receive free or discounted Slurpees on 7/11. However this year 7-Eleven have cancelled the promotion because of the coronavirus pandemic and will instead be donating 1 million meals to the charity Feeding America.

The first 7-Eleven Day was held in 2002.

How to play mini golf (in Swedish)

A look at a minigolf guide in Sweden.


We saw this minigolf instructions sign at Solna Bangolfklubb while on a trip to Sweden in February 2018.

Solna Bangolfklubb in Sweden
Så här spelar vi bangolf

"Så här spelar vi bangolf" translates as "This is how we play golf".

During that trip we managed to visit nine minigolf courses in 42 hours!

Unfortunately the outdoor minigolf courses at at Solna Bangolfklubb were closed as it was out-of-season and they were covered in snow.

Snowy minigolf

Is there any snow where you are?

There's none in Stockport - we seem to have missed it so far.


Thankfully there are now plenty of indoor courses to get your minigolf fix while you wait for some sunny weather.


When our travels began in 2006 there were only two indoor minigolf courses in the UK. There are now around 100 indoor miniature golf courses.

In February 2018 we visited Sweden and managed to visit nine minigolf courses in 42 hours. A lot of those were covered in snow.

Visit the O'Learys website for more information, opening times and prices for the 9-hole miniature golf course.

Last year we visited nine courses on a 42-hour trip to Sweden. One of those was the Sports World Minigolf course at O'Learys in the Mall of Scandinavia. It was the 473rd course we played, 801st visited overall and the 32nd we'd been to overseas. We've now visited 890 courses since September 2006.

There's certainly plenty to see and do in Stockholm and hopefully when we return we'll have more than a couple of days to fit stuff in!

Two of those courses were at Solna Bangolfklubb in Solna. The venue is home to two minigolf courses - an 'Eternit' Miniature Golf layout and a NIFO Steel Minigolf course.
