On Saturday 18 October we headed to Mead Open Farm for a morning of fun on the farm. And some Crazy Golf!

The course was the 350th we've played on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour and the 584th visited overall.

The 9-hole course at Mead Open Farm was the last of the 'local' courses for us to play in Bedfordshire and it was worth the wait. We first heard about the farm about thirteen years ago when there was a very catchy local radio advert for it. We were singing it to ourselves on the drive there!

Play of the Crazy Golf course is included in the entry price and you can have as many goes as you like! Check out photos of the 'Swedish Felt B-run' style of miniature golf course below.
In our minigolf medal match-up played over two 9-hole rounds I defeated Emily with a score of 42(+6) to 46(+10).

We had a great time at Mead Open Farm, there was plenty to see and do (even for big kids like us).

As the 18 October was the first-day of the farm's special Halloween Freaky Fortnight there were ghoulish fun activities too.

On the 18 October last year I played at the Putt in the Park Minigolf course in Wandsworth, London, and in 2012 I played the Woolly Golf course in Covent Garden.
