Building the pyramid

Tue, 28 Nov 2017  |  Nick Tulp, UrbanCrazy

Our Jon’s brief was to make a pyramid of golf balls “like the Ferrero Rocher tower with a tunnel through it” for a minigolf obstacle. With this the thoughts and opportunities spiralled with the different choices we had. Starting from the geometry of the Great Pyramid of Giza (51.5° side angle) and a maximum footprint size, it was time to play with some ideas to see the scale this beast would be.

What incredible weather we’re having already and it’s not even July yet! The mercury keeps tipping over 30°C and we’re having some of the hottest June days since 1976! Not so great if you’re stuck indoors – but perfect if you’re outdoors – and even more perfect if you fancy a spot of mini golf. Read more

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’.

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

Be afraid. Be very afraid!

Tue, 30 Sep 2014  |  Rebecca Dickson, UrbanCrazy

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!

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.
