Crazy Golf in Manchester

A look at minigolf courses in the Manchester area.


2017 saw a real boom in minigolf in the UK and there are a number of new courses set to open in 2018.

Here in Manchester there are plenty of options to play minigolf, crazy golf and adventure golf, with some new courses being built this year too.

Paradise Island Adventure Golf at the Trafford Centre - two 18-hole indoor Adventure Golf courses.

Over the years we've played a number of other minigolf courses in Manchester on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour - some have been portable courses, while others have been temporary or pop-up locations. Back in 2009 I also won two mini major tournaments on the old Championship Miniature Golf course at the Trafford Golf Centre.
