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…

Putting practice for The Open Championship

Sun, 16 Jul 2017  |  Jon Angel, UrbanCrazy

Last Thursday’s Clare Balding Show featured twice Olympic rowing gold medallist, Helen Glover, former F1 World Champion, Damon Hill and the popular and charismatic pro golfer, Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston.

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?

An artist’s impression

Mon, 04 Jan 2016  |  Jon Angel, UrbanCrazy

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…

2015 London Golf Show report

Wed, 18 Nov 2015  |  Jon Angel, UrbanCrazy

It was a huge thrill to be back at the London Golf Show for the sixth time entertaining visitors with our minigolf and ping pong activities.

The show was a success for us with many rounds and games played, Christmas pressies sold and funds and awareness raised for our partner charity, On Course Foundation. It’s a very worthy cause, please take a look at their website. Read more
