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

Improve your game with Chris Harding

Tue, 24 Feb 2015  |  Chris Harding, contributor

Back in 2005 UrbanCrazy’s very own Jon Angel, who was then captain of the Great Britain Minigolf Team, asked me to join them for that year’s World Minigolf Championship. Although a little nervous, I agreed, and had a great time learning the finer details of how to play professional minigolf.

Trendy crazy golf, by Swingers

Mon, 27 Oct 2014  |  Richard Linden, UrbanCrazy

Having heard all the talk about the ‘Swingers’ club, I couldn’t wait to check it out. It’s not what you’re thinking, it is in fact the new pop-up crazy golf course and bar in East London! So I went for a ‘busman’s night out’ with a few pals, down to trendy Shoreditch, to see what all the fuss was about. Read more

We at UrbanCrazy love things that are quirky, unique and a little different. Of course we were going to get ourselves in a tizz over a short independent horror movie based on, yes – you guessed it – crazy golf!

I spoke to the writer and creator, Chloe Philippou about how “Crazy Golf” came about… Read more

Let’s make gardens fun!

Thu, 28 Aug 2014  |  Jon Angel, UrbanCrazy

In 2010 we designed and installed a minigolf course in a rear garden in North London. We look back on this project with fond memories of what we created, with highlights including a double green, a fiendish water hazard and – our favourite one of all – a Rube Goldberg-esque contraption where the ball travels in and out of the shed!

Last month, 4 years since we completed the work, we were invited back to give the course and garden a spring clean and good ol’ spruce up ahead of the summer holidays.

A Question of Sport: Super Saturday

Wed, 23 Jul 2014  |  Richard Linden, UrbanCrazy

At UrbanCrazy we’ve come to the conclusion that the BBC absolutely loves crazy golf! To date this is the 7th time that our portable courses have appeared on the Beeb. For the latest instalment we went right back to where we started with ‘A Question of Sport’, but this time it was their spin-off show, ‘Super Saturday’. The production team gave us the brief to create a colourful and eye-catching course with 5 fairways, each of a different colour, all meeting at the central pentagonal green.

The UrbanCrazy World Of Miniature Golf

Mon, 16 Jun 2014  |  Richard Gottfried, contributor

Being on a mission to visit and play all of the Minigolf, Crazy Golf and Adventure Golf courses in the UK we’re always on the lookout for new places to play.

There are over 600 courses in the country, ranging from 9-hole to 54-hole complexes, with layouts indoors as well as outside. Some are of the seaside classic ‘Windmill’ type of course, others are newer all-singing, all-dancing adventure-themed golf courses with animatronic dinosaurs, jungles, volcanoes and plenty of water features. The UK also has a number of grass putting greens and skill-based Minigolf courses. Read more
