There are about 300 recesses on one golf ball, and thanks to them, the ball flies three times farther than a smooth one. ... Balls of the same size...

The Crazy Golf Museum is ten years old

The Crazy Golf Museum is ten years old


I set-up the museum with Crazy Golf legend Tim 'Ace Man' Davies back on the 15th July 2010, the virtual musuem is a treasure trove and archive for all things related to minigolf.

It's been an incredibly interesting decade!

Prior to the pandemic
There were so many marvellous things going in the world of minigolf prior to the Coronavirus pandemic. New courses were being built, tournaments held and interesting items and ephemera were being created.

Some of this is on-hold as the world tackles Covid-19.

Minigolf in the time of Coronavirus
I've been using some of my time during lockdown documenting 'Minigolf in the time of coronavirus' and creating a time line of the game during the pandemic.

After the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918 and during part of the Great Depression minigolf boomed and we have some records of the time. But to actually be living through such a life changing time is something else!

There are still milestones and anniversaries to be celebrated and courses to be supported for when it's ready to get out and play again.

The future of minigolf
Minigolf is still being played and new courses continue to be planned, developed and built here in the UK and around the world. Thankfully the game will go on, albeit in a different form for a while.

There will be lots of minigolf fun to be had again.

If you'd like to contribute any items, merchandise, course history, current developments or guest blog posts please do get in touch.

Visit the Crazy Golf Museum website, like the museum's Page and Group on Facebook, check out the museum on Twitter and Instagram for information, photos, items, ephemera, stories, videos, postcards, games and more.

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