Our crazy golfing adventures began at Treasure Island Adventure Golf in Southsea back in September 2006. Since then we've visited hundreds of weird, wonderful and wacky courses.
While we were visiting my brother Christopher at uni in Portsmouth back in 2006 we played the Victory Trail course at Treasure Island Adventure Golf in Southsea. At the end of our round on Saturday 30th September I won a free game by firing the cannon on the lucky last hole.
That was the beginning of our minigolf travels. We've now visited 925 courses, 39 of which have been overseas.
How different would our lives have been if I'd missed my shot on that final hole?
When our travels began there were around 600 courses in the UK. That number has grown massively in the last eight years. When we first set out to visit all the courses in the country there were only two indoor courses, one in Felixstowe and one in Great Yarmouth. Both are still open and have been joined by around 100 other indoor minigolf venues!
Over the years we've also found and played pop-up minigolf courses in a number of places including shopping malls, pubs, banks, piers, parks, weddings, hotels, amusements arcades and casinos.
We visited our 600th UK course
at Goodrington Sands, Devon in June 2015. There are now around 1,000 courses in the UK, with new courses
opening all the time.
My brother Christopher and his wife Nina have now been to 30 courses in the UK and nine overseas countries on their own branch of the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour. Altogether we've visited 947 courses.
