JW3 CRAZY GOLF

Fri, 15 Jul 2016  |  Richard Linden, UrbanCrazy

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.

Click here for location, prices and details on how to book. And if you do get to play, I’d love to hear how you got on… let me know via UrbanCrazy’s twitter page. Happy putting!

Playing Saltburn Minigolf: Hints and Tips

Mon, 02 May 2016  |  Jon Angel, UrbanCrazy

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!

Read on to learn more about the facility and for pointers on how to play some of the holes ahead of your next visit. Check out the gallery to the right for some of our favourite photos.

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. Alongside the course and tables we had a separate stand with special offers on a bright selection of themed and novelty golf balls. 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

A bloomin’ great course

Tue, 15 Sep 2015  |  Micaela Blitz, UrbanCrazy

A chance visit to a garden centre sowed the ‘seed’ of an idea for Simon Fitton earlier this year, which, with a bit of help from UrbanCrazy, finally came into bloom in August.

As a golf pro and successful golf club owner Simon had been looking to ‘branch’ out into the world of mini-golf but had not found the right location for his venture. When he stopped off to take a call in the car park of Dobbie’s Garden Centre in Peterborough he knew he had found the ideal spot and immediately spoke to the manager. Within a few days things started to take ‘root’.

PongCrazy pimped up ‘UV style’

Tue, 28 Jul 2015  |  Richard Linden, UrbanCrazy

Ever since we introduced the world to PongCrazy (our quirky take on ping pong), we’ve been dying to pimp up our tables ‘UV style’! So very recently we set to work on a new version that would glow all sorts of weird and wonderful colours in a dark room, under a black light, with the aim of confusing the hell out of people attempting to play. Sound like a good plan..? We thought so! Read more
