Launching a minigolf course in lockdown.
We had a superb time at the launch of the brand new Filwood Fantastic Crazy Golf course in Knowle West, Bristol on Saturday.
I've been documenting 'Minigolf in the time of coronavirus
' during the pandemic. It has been interesting to see the changes to how minigolf is played here in England, elsewhere in the UK and around the world.
One of the projects we've been involved in during the various lockdowns is the Filwood Fantastic Mini Golf Club.
The real life miniature golf course was created during the pandemic and the ideas for the hole designs were generated by members of the Knowle West community during Lockdown 1.
We really enjoyed being a part of the clubhouse and tee party online meetings and to play the unique course and meet the people involved in person was brilliant.
The Filwood Fantastic Crazy Golf course was the 966th course visited overall on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour and the 549th we've played since September 2006.
The course is now open to play for members of the local community and the general public. At only £1 per round it's one of the best value miniature golf courses in the UK - if not the world!
There were so many fantastic people and organisations involved in the project and you can find out more about them on my blog
