Saltburn - So good we played it twice

When we heard that UrbanCrazy were building a new Mini Golf course in Saltburn-by-the Sea we got excited. It's a lovely seaside town with a funicular and a pier and a miniature railway, with a gorgeous long beach and fantastic views. We like the place and it's only a fairly short train ride away from home. So on a sunny but chilly day we headed down there to try out the new course.

The course is down on the seafront just north of the pier and the bottom of the funicular. It's new, it's clean and it's a great deal of fun.

There's even a shed, or is it a beach hut?

As you can see from the pictures there are lots of curves. This means that bouncing off the edge of the holes can be a but unpredictable and you can easily end up back where you started.

As it's so new, the greens are very fast too so even a perfectly aimed shot can go bouncing over the hole if you're not careful.

And at the end there's a chance to win a free round. There's no skill involved, just get the ball up the slope and then watch it bounce around in the box and hope it lands in the part which makes the bell ring.

Here are the scores from the 1st round: Barry won and Glenda won a free round.

But that wasn't the end of it. After a walk along the beach, a pint at The Ship and some Fish & Chips, we went back for another game. This time Glenda won. Neither of us won a free round this time but we don't need that as an excuse to go back, just some free time and a sunny day.
