Crazy Golf from Brighton to Coombe Mill

Posted on September 22nd, 2017

Over the summer holidays we took a family trip for a few days mid week to stay with Nick’s Mum in Sussex. When we come here Brighton is always a favourite place for the kids to visit. The pebbly beaches, shopping and pier are a huge draw to my teens. Heading into town on our first day Farmer Nick had something new he wanted to try out, crazy golf. We have played in the past and always enjoyed it but this time was slightly different, we are seriously looking at a crazy golf course for the farm and this was to be not only a fun game in teams but also a fact finding mission for what we would need.

Crazy Golf in Teams at Brighton

WE split ourselves into two teams as we were too many to play all together. I was on a team with the triplets and I must say the shouting, cheering, accusing and competitive drive reached fever point on each hole. You would have thought their lives depended on the game; however despite this they all agreed it was great fun.

There were several out of bounds balls requiring fence leaping and fishing in ponds to continue play!

My favourite moment was Jed claiming his hole in one!

Farmer Nick spent as much time analysing the flooring, height of the surrounds, materials, features and complexity of each hole in preparation for making our own version at Coombe Mill.

We may be some way off the cleverly made course in Brighton, but Nick has terraced the orchard with his beloved digger in preparation for creating our very own Coombe Mill Crazy Golf.

 

 

We have kept all our Facebook followers guessing over the purpose of the new terracing, but I’m hoping you’ll agree it will be a fun use of a wasted slope. I can’t wait to move this project on. Fingers crossed I will have something to share by next summer.

 I’m thinking fairies & gnomes in the woods for our theme rather than the Pirates of Brighton. What do you think?   

 

 

Come and see how we are getting on this Christmas. Head on over to Facebook and WIN your family Christmas with us.
