Britain is fast becoming home to some of the prettiest and most versatile crazy golf courses. If you’ve ever fancied marrying a BBQ with golf, now you can! There’s just one catch – these crazy golf courses are close to home…very close to home! In fact, they are fitted out in your back garden. Before baulking at the idea of sacrificing your somewhat patchy lawn and uneven veg patch, consider the benefits such a designs could bring.


The AstroTurf

Neat appearance – Crazy golf courses are designed specifically for your garden space. The made to measure AstroTurfs and wooden edging creates clean cut lines giving a neat appearance for your garden.

Easy to manage – Crazy golf courses are relatively low maintenance compared to a ‘normal’ garden. There is less of a need to weed your garden, and no need to mow.

More garden shed space – It’s time to GumTree the lawnmower, the sprinkler and hoe, and time to list your strimmer on Ebay! Even the lawn feeder and miracle grow can be rehomed or binned. Finally, you will have ample room for your bikes, BBQ set and sun-loungers.

No yellow patches of grass: When the weather heats up – no sweat! The AstroTurf, being an artificial replacement for grass does not form yellow patches in the sun.

No mole holes: According to, ‘Moles do not like an artificial lawn and will not normally dig under it. Moles are attracted by food that they would normally find in top soil, the base of an artificial lawn isn’t the ideal environment for these food sources and so moles are rarely a problem.’

Level ground: Unless you plan to have slopes within your crazy golf course, the ground is levelled, removing divots and mounds, further adding to your garden’s aesthetic appearance.

Ignoring the multiple benefits a crazy golf course bestows upon your garden; there are also multiple reasons that may specifically benefit the golfer and home owner.

Improved handicap: Practising your pitches and puts is equally as important as practising your long-range drive, as comically demonstrated in the film, Happy Gilmore. If you feel that your long-range drive is up to par, but your short is found lacking, you’ll now have more reason than ever to practise and get back on top of your game! Usually, indoor space at home does not provide a good environment in which to practise. By having such a space outdoors, your opportunity to practise also increases, which typically furthers the golfer’s skills.

The Three ‘F’s’: Fun, Fresh air and Friendship – With more time spent outdoors exercising in the fresh air, a golfer’s health should also improve. With a ready form of entertainment on hand, there’s no better time in which to invite friends and family around to your home to show off your new golf course, have some fun and get a few rounds in! .
