We’ve always loved playing crazy golf, or adventure golf whichever you like to call it. In recent years new crazy golf courses seem to be popping up all over the place. We have been discovering new places to play crazy golf in Bournemouth.
Crazy golf goes by many different names, including mini golf which is derived from put put golf. Essentially the terms mean that your are putting your golf ball on a course at a short range in the lowest amount of puts as possible.
An average nine hole game of crazy golf will take around 30-40 minutes depending on how many people are playing in a group, and how busy the course is. It has become a very popular way of spending time, especially in popular tourist attractions such as Bournemouth, Dorset.

Mighty Claws Adventure Golf
Address: Playgolf, Riverside Ave, Christchurch, Bournemouth BH7 7ES
The theming at Mighty Claws adventure golf is the Jurassic World. The course is 18 holes where you’ll meet a variety of different species of prehistoric dinosaur.
Each hole has different challenges and whilst some holes are easier than others, we had great fun completing the course. There is plenty of water features at Mighty Claws, so be prepared to lose your ball on certain holes around the course. We had to return to ask for a new ball on more than one occasion.
Mighty Claws site also has a restaurant attached which serves amazing pizza and milkshakes.
Address: Exeter Rd, Bournemouth BH2 5AF
Mr Mulligans in Bournemouth is one of the newer additions to the town. In the new BH2 building, this is is a great indoor adventure golf location, so perfect for when the weather isn’t great.
Mr Mulligans is a family friendly site during the day, but it also turns into an adults only venue after 8.45pm at night. There are three different courses on offer, the Cosmic course, Apocalypse course and the Space course.
Each course is nine holes which allows you to choose the courses you wish to play on according to how many games your have purchased. We thought the theming was amazing when we visited, and on a warm afternoon, we almost had the place to ourselves.
There is also a large bar area and plenty of diner style seating available for you to enjoy food and drink after your games. Mr Mulligans also offers a drinks service to be brought to you whilst you play. This is a great idea for an adults only evening.
Smugglers Cove Adventure Golf
Address: Pier Approach, Bournemouth BH2 5AA
Smuggler’s Cove is Bournemouth’s newest adventure golf site. Located right next to the beach, this is a popular location. The course is based on Bournemouth in the past.
You are transported back to Bournemouth in the 1700’s as you play the 18 hole course. Early reports suggest the course is challenging in places, taking approximately an hour to complete.
Bournemouth Gardens Classic Mini Golf
Address: Miniature Golf Course, Lower Gardens, Bournemouth BH1 2AQ
If a classic style adventure golf course is what you’re looking for then you should pay a visit to the Lower Gardens and play this 18 hole course. The site is weather dependent being outside, but generally you can expect to find it open until the light starts to fade.
At just £4.80 for an adult ticket, this is the cheapest adventure golf site in Bournemouth.
