C is for Crazy Golf
In crazy golf the crazier the hole layout the better! Our portable and interlocking course allows a number of hole layouts. Whether you go for the standard straight or the dog-leg hole layout, a number of larger formations can be achieved. If you like puzzles then you can get crazy with our course components!
R is for Rules
Yes there are crazy golf rules! You must not deliberately strike another’s balls with your putter (or another player of course!) The highest score per hole is 7. If the ball hasn’t reached the hole by the 6th shot, a 7 should be recorded on the scorecards. The only other rule is have FUN!
A is for Adventure Golf
Adventure Golf courses come in all guises – dinosaur and pirate themes, Lost Worlds and Pharoahs, blacklight courses or glow in the dark courses as they are sometime known. Adventure courses are defined as a non-standard minigolf courses, with wider fairways and undulating greens.
Z is for Zig Zag
Well let me off here, not many golf related words begin with ‘Z’ so this is the best I can find! We have a hole layout for a zig zag and of course playing the lines of the course often require a ‘zig zag’ style rebound to avoid and obstacle or reach the hole.
Y is for Yardage
Whilst we usually work in metres at Putterfingers HQ, yardage can vary with our modular components as you can interlock as many of the astro grass tile together as you wish. Here’s our Shelley attempting a 6 yard putt:
G is for Golf Gear
Whether you play off a handicap on an 18 hole course or you are starting out with some putting, golf is a sport for everyone! Getting the right gear is important for any sport. Rubber Headed Putters are best for crazy golf as they won’t damage the fairways or obstacles if you get a bit carried away with your swing!
O is for Obstacles
Each crazy golf hole has a different obstacle to challenge you and this is ultimately what makes the golf crazy. Don’t be distracted by the bridges, windmills, water hazards or volcanoes. Common obstacles on outdoor courses include windmills with rotating sails.
L is for Low Bounce Balls
Crazy Golf needs low bounce balls, of the dead variety….. A normal flight golf ball can cause all sorts of problems on the putting green and to other players!
F is for Flags
Without the flags how would you know where to putt? The Flags can be steel coated that stake into the ground, or free flying in the wind, dependent on the hole sizing.
Our top tips for enjoying a game of crazy golf
Crazy golf can be a difficult skill to learn, so practice makes perfect.
Try not to take it too seriously!
Remember the taking part is just as important and if you do fall short with your score – be a graceful runner up!
Avoid all distractions and keep focused.
And of course – HAVE FUN!
A mini golf weekend to launch the new Volkswagen Golf was held with one of our portable crazy golf courses at Jacksons of Jersey,

‘The Volkswagen Golf in an important car for us. It’s a very popular family car and we wanted to ensure that the whole family could get involved and enjoy the launch of the seventh-generation model.”
While our portable mini golf course cannot compete with the new VW Golf features that include touch screen and media devices, our courses are robust have interchangeable astro grass tiles to create the formation of holes you wish and are safe to use in any indoor or outdoor environment, thanks to our range of safety rubber headed putters and low bounce balls.
