It was nice to spot this digital outdoor advertising for Treetop Adventure Golf while recently shopping at the Arndale centre in Manchester.

Ham and Eggers wanted

I spotted this boxing job advert in Stockport town centre yesterday. The advertiser had spared the expense of doing a proper job on it.

They weren't sparing in the distribution of it either as I saw it plastered all round town.

We haven't been to the four London Junkyard Crazy Golf courses at the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane yet, but the Manchester courses are two of our most local minigolf layouts and were the 718th and 719th visited on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour.

It's always nice to see minigolf advertising. Last year we saw an advert for the Shanklin Seafront Crazy Golf course on an Island Line tube train.

Clothes shopping in Hong Kong...

The advertising campaign for the 2014 Spring/Summer collection at this clothes shop in the Tsim Sha Tsui area of Kowloon, Hong Kong must've been a success as the poster is still up!

Emily spotted this brand name while on business in Kowloon - crazy!

Just recently we spotted a great window display of funny brand names from around the world at the Fleet Street Clinic in London. They don't always make the right impression when they travel to international markets!

Ribenary Crazy Golf

Crazy Golf in Ribena's new marketing campaign.

Ribenary Crazy Golf

I was excited to hear about the new marketing campaign from Ribena as it includes Crazy Golf!

Ribenary Crazy Golf
Hole 1 is called Blackcurrant Forest. That looks like a tricky loop-di-loop (and a sneak 'Pro' shot being played around the obstacle)

The three-hole Crazy Golf course is showcasing the Ribena Flavour range - with a hole for Strawberry, Blackcurrant and Mango. As well as offering a game of Crazy Golf the Ribenary campaign team are also giving out samples of the drinks. I've heard that the course has also used scent technology to give players a whiff of the different flavours as they play.

Ribenary Crazy Golf
Make sure to grab a drink after your round of Ribenary Crazy Golf

The Ribenary Crazy Golf course looks really good and it's a nice touch that they've got scorecards for players to use and keep.

The campaign has been running since the end of July and will continue into September. So far the Ribena-themed Crazy Golf course has popped up in Cardiff, Bristol, Reading and Swindon.

This week the Ribenary Golf course is in Liverpool and Manchester. With the course rolling into Glasgow, Newcastle, Southampton, Bournemouth, Portsmouth, Brighton, Sheffield and Leeds in the coming weeks.

On our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour we've played minigolf in most of the towns on the list. Cardiff, Reading, Southampton, Sheffield and Leeds are all on our 'to visit' list.

Check out the #RibenaryGolf hashtag on Twitter and the Ribena website for more information.

Ribenary Crazy Golf
You can't get more Ribenary than a BIG strawberry on a Ribena-themed minigolf course!

I'm feeling thirsty now!

Stonehaven, Kincardineshire Official Holiday Guide

Finding an old Official Holiday Guide, including Mini Golf Putting, for the town of Stonehaven, Kincardineshire.

While on a day out in Bedford I noticed an Antiques and Collectors fair going on at St Paul's Church so popped in to see if I could find any minigolf postcards or ephemera.

I was in luck as I found an interesting old Official Guide for visitors to the seaside town of Stonehaven.

The Stonehaven Official Guide, designed and produced under the authority of the Town Council by Mearns Publications. Printed by Langstane Press, Aberdeen

Flicking through the guide I spotted a half page photo of the Putting and Bowling Greens on page 19.

Some of the entertainment and leisure facilities on offer to visitors to the town

On page 22 it states there were two putting courses in the town, and on page 35 the cost per round is given as 6d.

Stonehaven is on the north east coast of Scotland and lies 15 miles south of Aberdeen. Stonehaven is now a part of Aberdeenshire as Kincardinshire lost its administrative status in 1975. I couldn't find any other dates of publication of the old guide, but it is pre-decimal (before 1971). Very interesting to see the old phone numbers listed too - only four-digits long!

At a guess I would say the guide was produced in 1966. A recent event shown is the reopening of the old tolbooth by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother in 1963. There is also an advert on the inside back cover for Milne's Soft Drinks and Cordials - they are endorsed by Andy Ross, the 1965 winner of the Suffolk Point to Point.

Looking online the current official website for the town is the Stonehaven Guide. You can still find a Putting course at the Stonehaven Recreation Grounds Club. Its existence was confirmed by George McGillivray of the Stonehaven Guide.

The old guide is great find, with some nice minigolf and seaside holiday history.

Over the years Emily and I have enjoyed some very nice trips to Scotland on our travels.

Luton. Or is it?

A great new advertising campaign from easyJet.

Commuting isn't the most fun thing in the world, but a new advert from Luton-based airline easyJet recently brought a smile to my face on a recent trip home.

Luton - otherwise known as Lüton, Lutôn and Lutoné
I've lived in Luton for 15 years and never seen the town's name written this way! 

It makes me proud to live in the northern region of Luton known as Lëagrâvé.
