The Crazy Golf Museum

The Crazy Golf Museum


Back in 2010 I became a 'Curator' of the world's first Crazy Golf Museum. Along with Crazy Golf legend Tim 'Ace Man' Davies we pooled our resources to create the virtual museum, allowing people all over the world an insight to the wonderful world of minigolf.

Over the years we've seen some amazing minigolf 'stuff' and have collected a lot of it too. From postcards and stamps to badges and tokens, we've gathered together a whole host of items – we've even got some minigolf sugar lumps!

We love receiving items and information from players around the world as it allows us and others to see what's going on in places we may never get to visit in person. Seeing the colourful scorecards of courses in the USA or hearing about history being made with new competitions held in countries for the first time is marvellous.

Our friend and the Editor of Minigolfnews Pat Sheridan has been a great supporter of the Crazy Golf Museum from the start and has provided images and items from his own miniature golfing adventures in the USA.

For people interested in the history of our great sport you can also delve into the archives of miniature golf organisations in the USA and Germany.

There is a superb online archive of Putt-Putt World magazines and newsletters dating back to 1958 on the PPA website.

We've also really enjoyed checking out the online archive of minigolf magazines dating back to 1974 on the DMV website.

We're always on the look-out for new pieces, living memories and the history of courses, clubs, competitions and anything minigolf-related.

If you have any interesting minigolf items, stories or ephemera do get in touch as we'd love to feature them through the museum's social media channels.

Richard Gottfried blogs about minigolf at the Ham and Egger Files. He's also the Curator of the Crazy Golf Museum and author of The Minigolfer's Guide to Marketing.
