I love playing crazy golf on the Island - just a shame that some of my old favourite courses are gone...

I enjoyed this Entry - a great mix of crazy golf and sightseeing.
I played crazy golf this month for the first time (playing one hole 9 times at Pontins because I couldn't fit through the gate to reach the other holes didn't really count).
The wheelchair accessible course was a bit tame compared to some of the ones described here - there were a couple of windmills, but apart from that it was fibreglass and green carpet. There were a few sound effects too - a fanfare when you sent the ball through a windmill, and the Jaws Theme played distractingly when people followed their ball on to one of the greens.
It was challenging for me, especially because the artificial light casting no shadows made it difficult to see the lie of the land, and it exercised muscles I didn't even know I had, but I never took more than 5 shots to the hole, and once I even got a hole in one!

This entry is a bit inaccurate and out of date now, but generally good fun. I'll have to have a game of crazy golf or two next time I'm over. Especially as my son quite likes the game now.
The strangest crazy golf I've played (not on the Island) was 4D golf in Yorkshire's Xscape, where you have an indoor, pitch black course vut with glowing decorations, glow-in-the-dark balls and obstacles and 3D glasses. I felt very dizzy

Last week I played four crazy golf courses on the Island, one in Sandown, two in Shanklin and one at Alum Bay.
