Proper golfing with windmills and that and without the silly trousers.

Ahoy me hearties! Pirate mini-golf in Scarborough
To Scarborough (again! wahey!) for a weekend away. It was a gloriously sunny and warm early October Friday afternoon when we arrived and so we headed to the pirate adventure golf on the sea-front in the North Bay.
It's a course we have played a few times in the past but due to its popularity, it's quite difficult to get on the course some times so we haven't played it for a while. We have often turned up to play there only to find the course full of families having fun and that's great, but it means a long, long, long wait for us two crazy golfers as we wait for groups of family and friends to crack on and get going ahead of us.
However, this sunny Friday afternoon we had the course to ourselves. Just us. Just the two of us playing a round on the pirate golf, it was marvellous!
It's a 9 hole course and costs £4.50 per person which is a bit steep, admittedly. But there is the fun of lots of pirates all over the place, a hole (above) with running water in it to help the ball down the chute and two pirate rafts you have to stand on and pull yourself over to the other side of the course.
And then there's the "Yo-ho! Yo-ho!" song that goes on in the background which will ear-worm you for days.
