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
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…
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

Another week, another TV appearance for UrbanCrazy’s portable mini golf, this time as part of a Ryder Cup edition of Sky Sport 1’s, ‘Game Changers’. The Saturday morning show, hosted by keen golfer Di Dougherty and former British athlete Darren Campbell, encourages young people to take an interest and get involved in all manner of different sports.
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.
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
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.
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.
