Our Jon’s brief was to make a pyramid of golf balls “like the Ferrero Rocher tower with a tunnel through it” for a minigolf obstacle. With this the thoughts and opportunities spiralled with the different choices we had. Starting from the geometry of the Great Pyramid of Giza (51.5° side angle) and a maximum footprint size, it was time to play with some ideas to see the scale this beast would be.
The World Adventure Golf Masters was contested for the seventh time in its history last month and this year the venue was Zaton Holiday Resort, Croatia. Proudly supported by UrbanCrazy, Great Britain was represented by two teams in the two-day competition with the squad comprised of a blend of experienced players and international debutants who were up against representatives from many countries including: Germany, USA, Japan, New Zealand, Russia and Ghana.
On their return I caught up with three key GBR players – Sean Homer, Andy Exall and Will Donnelly – to ask them about their experience. Here’s what they had to say…
So in honour of Beef’s imminent appearance in The Open Championship at Royal Birkdale, Clare and her production team decided to organise a putting challenge between herself and all the guests and turned to us at UrbanCrazy to set up an extra-long hole in the studio, with some rather unusual obstacles. So who won the putt-off?
What incredible weather we’re having already and it’s not even July yet! The mercury keeps tipping over 30°C and we’re having some of the hottest June days since 1976! Not so great if you’re stuck indoors – but perfect if you’re outdoors – and even more perfect if you fancy a spot of mini golf. Read more
Have you seen our wacky ping pong tables yet? Paddington Central had, at an event where we supplied their entertainment some time ago. We were delighted when, just recently, they contacted us again, this time to commission us to build a bespoke table for their site. Read more
Are you planning an event? Are you looking for that extra-special something? Do you like chocolate?
If the answer is yes to any of the above then we have just the thing for you. It’s our newest addition to the UrbanCrazy range and definitely the most delicious – chocolate shawarma kebab! Read more
In the last few weeks I’ve had bundles of fun coming up with ideas and creating this one-off 9-hole crazy golf course for JW3. The family-friendly course is themed around Rio’s summer of sport and is now fully-installed on site. It will be open every day – except Saturdays – from Sunday 17 July until Sunday 4 September.
Saltburn Promenade has been home to a fabulous new minigolf course since March 2016. We designed and built the course to offer an enjoyable game for visitors of all ages and a treat for the eyes, with cleverly-placed seaside-themed obstacles and features. You must putt past the surfboard, around the lighthouse, over the bridge, through the beach hut and down the Bagatelle for glory!

Last Saturday I spotted this story on the BBC website about a photo taken on New Year’s Eve in Manchester, which developed into an internet meme. As you scroll down the article you will notice a tweet from @mjlovatt_LFC in which he used the specialist app, SuperPhoto, to recreate the image with a paint effect.
So I decided to use the same app and another that I recently discovered – RollWorld – to reimagine some of our own favourite photos that we’ve taken over the past few years. Here are the hypnotic results…
