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...

A minigolf postcard from Bournemouth

A minigolf postcard from Bournemouth


A blog post about not going on holiday to Bournemouth.

We were supposed to be on our holiday in Bournemouth this week and were going to be staying at the Miramar Hotel. The hotel was once home to a Putting Green and we'd specifically booked our stay at the hotel after finding an old postcard showing the course there.

We've visited the area a number of times over the years but our last trip there was in 2013. Since then a number of new courses have opened up, while some of the others have been refurbished.

We'd planned visits to 16 miniature golf courses in the Bournemouth, Boscombe, Southbourne, Poole and Sandbanks area of Dorset on the trip.

It's brilliant seeing old, long-gone miniature golf courses depicted on postcards. We've collected quite a few old postcards of minigolf courses in the area. Some are still there, such as the Lower Gardens course in Bournemouth, while others, like the Alum Chine course are long gone.

We're really looking forward to visiting the area on holiday next year.

In the meantime we're spending the downtime looking through the minigolf postcard collection we've built up over the last ten years or so.

If you know of any new minigolf postcards I'd love to see them, or better still receive one in the post.
