Charnwood Golf Complex in Leicestershire had reason to celebrate on Saturday 5 April at the opening of its new miniature golf course. Despite grey skies for most of the day there was an excellent turn out from the public. 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.
As a result of the rapidly expanding UV / Black Light / Glow In The Dark minigolf course market in the UK and Europe, we have branched out into supplying UV accessories. We have a fantastic range of high-grade stock at excellent prices, so there couldn’t be a better time to order!
It’s the second weekend of November; it’s Earls Court 2; it’s the 2013 London Golf Show. We were back with an exciting, themed crazy golf course, a separate Hole-In-One Challenge, novelty golf balls for sale and our brand new creation, drumroll please…
…Making its first public outing was our unique, gourmet table tennis game PongCrazy, a collaborative effort by UrbanCrazy’s Jon, Kate, Dave and Marcin.
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.
Read on for an overview of each appearance and see right for a selection of stills and snapshots from the various broadcasts:
The brand new 12-hole permanent miniature golf course at Wellington Country Park in Hampshire was officially launched by the Great Britain Minigolf Team last month. It really was a proud moment indeed to see team captain, James Rutherford, cut the ribbon and declare the course “open”!
As the sun beat down on Regent’s Place last Thursday and Friday, the plaza was transformed into a golf fest for the masses. For two days only anyone could come and play for free on our portable 9-hole ‘Signature Golf Course’, soak in the rays on the temporary deck chairs and enjoy the Open Championship Golf on the jumbo screen.

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
At UrbanCrazy, we like to give our customers a whole host of entertainment options for their events. When we are booked to provide a portable minigolf course we are often asked whether we can offer any extras, to which we have a 1001 answers. Well, not quite, but almost!
We have many strings to our bow here at UrbanCrazy and more recently children’s entertaining has come to the fore! Heading up this division is our main man Richard Linden, who, when not renting out our portable minigolf and crazy golf courses, can often be found juggling knives, balloon modelling or pulling a windmill out of his top hat.

It all went a bit crazy at the Westfield Shopping Centre in Merry Hill last Friday and the men in white coats had to be called in. Actually they were 10 children from St James’s C.E. Primary School who won a competition to be the official testers of the new Quest For Golf adventure golf course, designed conjointly by UrbanCrazy and Paragon Creative. Chris Harding, 2 times World Crazy Golf champion, also came along to put the course through its paces and offer some hints and tips to the school children.
Willy Aceit is on the 18th hole of his local minigolf course and needs to sink the ball in one to beat his close friend and rival in what has been a very heated and intense match! He has his trusty 35” UrbanCrazy blue putter in one hand and his gold ball (selected from a choice of 24 vibrant colours) in the other. He walks to the hole and places the ball on the UrbanCrazy rubber tee mat.
Over 3 days in August last year, 6 British minigolfers competed at the elite 2012 European Minigolf Championships in Portugal, sponsored by us here at UrbanCrazy.
Those players were British Team captain Marc Chapman, seasoned UK tour pro Tony Kelly, twice Kent Open winner Seth Thomas, Cambridgeshire Club captain James Rutherford, the team’s youngest player Freddie Blackburn-Shaw and 2009 London Open champion Adam Kelly.
Here James, Adam, Freddie and Tony reflect on their exciting, record-breaking and, at times, surreal experience playing for the Great Britain Minigolf Team…
