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...

Back in action at Aces Minigolf Gloucester


Playing in our first minigolf tournament since before the pandemic.

Emily and I were back in competitive minigolf action for the first time since 2019 when we visited the new Aces Minigolf course in Gloucester to take part in the Aces Minigolf Gloucester Invitational Tournament last Sunday.

Our friend, long-time minigolf rival and often time team-mate Seve Kukielka has created a superb 12-hole miniature golf layout at Aces Minigolf Gloucester. It sits within Dobbies Garden Centre and makes a perfect setting for a game.

It was fun to be back playing in a tournament and with only a short amount of practice time before the event teed-off we attempted to master as many of the holes as possible. It was great to work out a few ace lines and get the feel of the fresh new felt beneath our feet and putters.

The course is a nice, tricky layout with interesting and unique hole designs, all within a very pleasant setting. There are some great hole-in-one opportunities to be had and different routes from tee to cup on each hole. As well as some fairly large greens to tackle.

Aces Minigolf Gloucester was the 967th course we've been to on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour since September 2006 and we're very much looking forward to our return visits.

The course is already set to host the prestigious British Minigolf Association's Club Championships in October this year and is likely to be a venue for lots of opens, championships, club events and invitationals over the coming years.

Aces Minigolf Gloucester opens to the public on Friday 9th July.

You can find out more on the Aces Minigolf Gloucester Facebook Page.
