The rub of the green

Tue, 02 Oct 2012  |  Richard Linden, UrbanCrazy

A crazy golf course without obstacles is like having a table tennis table without a net. Well, you know what I mean! So our crisp, emerald green mobile crazy golf course together with a bunch of unique and outlandish obstacles is always a sure fire winner for any occasion.

When asked to provide a course for the Social Athletics Club to use over 3 different McDonald’s Global Reward & Recognition events during the London Olympics, we knew this option would be perfect. Our ‘Emerald Course’ incorporates all the classic features such as twists, turns and doglegs with firm, reliable borders.

Threading the ball under a pair of stilettos, swerving around a windmill, rebounding off the horseshoe and aiming through a TV screen were just some of the ways the players had to manoeuvre around our challenging course to achieve a low score. One player really got the rub of the green when he launched his ball over our ramp which then ricocheted off the far border flew into the air and then landed plum in the cup! To his credit he did acknowledge his good fortune.

The pièce de résistance was a life-size model of Tiger Woods who stood there watching over the minigolfing action throughout. Perhaps he was thinking to himself “this course would be great for me to practise my putting skills on”. To see the course layouts and all the obstacles we supplied for the McDonald’s events just click on the image to the right which will expand the gallery to full screen.

After the series of events, Christian Thompson from The Social Athletics Club offered these kind words about our service and staff. “People were playing multiple rounds and very much enjoying themselves – our client was very happy, giving glowing reports about each event. From start to finish UrbanCrazy were very professional whilst encouraging fun to be had. We would definitely work with them again!!”

Our ‘Emerald’ portable minigolf course is available for you to rent at your next do, be it a corporate function, wedding, university bonding session or family fun day. To accompany the course you can choose from a selection of the imposing obstacles you’ve seen in this piece, or if you prefer something more low-key, our standard white obstacles. For more information about the options, as well as prices and availability, please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
