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...

Re-opening Princess Parade Crazy Golf on Blackpool's North Shore

Re-opening Princess Parade Crazy Golf on Blackpool


The Crazy Golf course on Princess Parade in Blackpool, England is now open.

Blackpool and the Fylde Street Angels and Blackpool Fulfilling Lives joined forces to refresh and reopen the Princess Parade Crazy Golf course on Blackpool's North Shore in 2019 and a number of other people and groups have been a part of the community project. You can see what the course has looked like over the last few years in some of my previous posts and in this guest blog from July 2019.

The minigolf project has helped homeless and disadvantaged people in Blackpool by giving them the chance to bring the course up to scratch so it is playable and then staffing it for the season. It's been wonderful to give people the opportunity to receive work experience, while also bringing an historic, but disused, miniature golf course back to life.

Take a look at the Princess Parade Crazy Golf Facebook Group and the media release about the launch for more information.

I first played the course when I was a kid back in the 1980s. Emily and I have been to the course a number of times over the years, but had never been able to have a game on it until now.

We're really looking forward to returning to Blackpool again later this summer and playing a few more rounds on the course.

Here's a video of me playing the Princess Parade Crazy Golf course on Blackpool's North Shore at the launch event on Friday 28th May 2021.
