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

The timing was ideal for us as we were able to showcase our brand new ‘Serpentine’ portable crazy golf course with sinuous curves and a striking orange and blue felt surface. It’s one of our most innovative courses to date.

Not only was it a chance to play on the brand new course for free, but there was also a bouncy castle, BBQ and a trickshot display by Tricky Robb and his jaunty golfing trousers.

Wed, 23 Oct 2013  |  James Palmer, UrbanCrazy

We’re delighted that the producers of Baker & Kelly’s VSPO (on BT Sport 1 every Friday evening) have booked our services for a number their live shows since October 2013. Hosted by the flamboyant and excitable pairing of Danny Baker and Danny Kelly, the show takes an amusing, left-field look at the world of football and other sports. One of the recurring features pits the Dannies against each other in a golfing challenge, and so we have been supplying courses together with wacky, novelty obstacles, created by us and based on outlandish suggestions by viewers.

Barnard Castle Minigolf

A Journey Through Teesdale

Mon, 01 Jul 2013  |  Jon Angel, UrbanCrazy

After 30 years’ service, the old minigolf course in Barnard Castle, County Durham was beginning to ‘show its age’ and so the local Town Council decided it was time to replace it. They set about finding a company that could design and build a suitable replacement and we are delighted to say that, following a vigorous procurement process, we at UrbanCrazy were awarded the contract.

Now, after a 16 week build program and a herculean effort from all involved, the course is open for business! Read more
