There are about 300 recesses on one golf ball, and thanks to them, the ball flies three times farther than a smooth one. ... Balls of the same size...

The Crazy World of Minigolf Tour hits 900 courses

The Crazy World of Minigolf Tour hits 900 courses


Last month Emily and I made the landmark 900th course visit on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour when we had a round at the North Bay Mini Golf course in Scarborough, North Yorkshire.

When our travels began there were around 600 courses in the UK. We've now been to 862 courses in the British Isles and 39 overseas. The North Bay Crazy Golf course was the 520th we've played in the last 13 years as a number of courses we've visited have been closed, derelict, flooded or abandoned.

There are now more than 1,000 courses in the UK and there are new courses opening up all the time. We've still got a few traditional Crazy Golf courses to visit, as well as a number of the new Adventure Golf courses and indoor minigolf bars to play.

It's always really nice to find unique courses and the North Bay Crazy Golf course is that. There are some very good hole-in-one opportunities and a few tricky second putts on the colourful course. What was great to see was that the borders had felt on them that allowed skillful shots to be rewarded.

Our travels have taken us all over the UK and we love visiting new places, experiencing new things and meeting new people. It's also interesting when we return to a place some years apart, as was the case with Scarborough. Apart from a brief visit to the North Bay and the one course that was there in 2009 we'd not explored the area.

It was brilliant chatting to the course owners. They've got a real passion for the game and have created a fun and challenging layout. They told us that the course record was a 20, but not many players get close to that. I was pleased to hear that as I'd had a round of 24. If the weather hadn't gotten worse and if the day was longer I would've had another round or two to try and beat the record.

Since our 900th course visit our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour has continued to roll and we're currently at 911 course visits.
