Crazy World of Minigolf Tour - List and links for all Miniature Golf courses visited to date

Links and details of all the Adventure Golf, Crazy Golf, Minigolf/Mini-Golf/Miniature Golf & Golf Putting Green courses we've played on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour since September 2006.

Here is the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour "Courses Visited List" to date. The list shows the 578 Miniature Golf course location visits on our many roadtrips to date. Many of them have been played, however, others have been found to be closed, derelict or demolished. Some courses that were closed on our original visit have since been replayed.

Crazy World of Minigolf Tour at the world's first Miniature Golf course

On our travels we've seen the good, the bad and the ugly of Minigolf courses, but feel that each and every one of them is beautiful in its own right. The game of Minigolf is one of fun and frustration and mixes skill and luck to tackle the obstacles set-up to trip you up and trick you as you play. We'd like to thank course owners, operators & suppliers everywhere for building, running and maintaining Miniature Golf courses of all shapes, sizes and types and look forward to playing and revisiting courses for more Minigolfing fun in the future.

You can now click through from the list below to the webpage on the Ham & Egger Files detailing our visit to the course. The list and links will be added to as our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour continues, and some courses have not had photos, videos or results etc. added to the website yet.

Some of the courses have had course reviews submitted by me to Miniaturegolfer.com and The Putting Penguin websites. Where available you can click through to the relevant link from the list below.

Please be aware that courses come and go and this list is not a 'live' list of Miniature Golf courses. On our travels we've found over 200 of the 500+ that we've visited to be closed, derelict or demolished. If you find that a course is no longer there, or has significantly changed, please leave a comment.

Today marks the sixth year of me and Emily's Crazy World of Minigolf Tour! We've visited 509 courses in a variety of types since the 30th September 2006!

Many thanks to everyone for the tips of where to play and for Tim 'Ace Man' Davies for creating MiniatureGolfer.com. It's been brilliant visiting so many different places in the UK (and a few overseas) and meeting some great people, many of whom have become good friends.

If you have any suggestions on what we could do with the next six years of our lives we'd welcome your comments...
