Adventure Mini Golf in Stoke is home to two 18-hole adventure golf courses. It's the sister-course of Adventure Island Mini Golf at Star City in Birmingham - a course we've played a lot of tournaments at over the years.

We've been to Stoke a few times, but not since the new Adventure Mini Golf course opened. We'll swing by on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour in the future.

Check out the Adventure Mini Golf website for more information.

Graffiti Golf in Blackpool has closed

We played the course in its original incarnation as Golden Isle Indoor Adventure Golf in September 2009, visited during its time as Merlin Pirate Adventure Mini Golf and then played the course in its final version of Pirate Graffiti Golf in August 2018.

We were very sad to heard that the minigolf course at the Recreation Ground in Stratford-upon-Avon has closed after 20 years in operation.

Playing the course in 2008

The course was the 49th visited on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour back in 2008 and a venue for a number of British Minigolf Association tournaments over the years.

It was the host venue for the BMGA British Club Championships in 2008 - the first BMGA Tour event I won as part of the Midlands Minigolf Club.

Playing the course in a competition in 2010

The 18-hole minigolf course in Stratford-upon-Avon was one of the very best miniature golf courses in the country and real pleasure to play. As well as being a true test of putting skill.

It'll be greatly missed.
