Friends unite
 Friends unite   by Ben Cusick  (Nikon D7000)
Taken about a month ago when the friends of Haigh Country Park had just finished the first phase of their regeneration project for the crazy golf course at Haigh Hall.

Fantastic - I told my 5 year old grandson what the Friends of HCP had done and he couldn't understand why I would not take him to the crazy golf last Saturday. I told him I thought it would be open after the winter. Very well done.

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees!!!!!!!! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!!!!!!
Crazy Golf RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love it!!!!!!!!, cheers!!!!


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 10th December 2012 at 03:18
All the putters appear identical and are centre shafted. Can you clarify, Ben?
I just use a centre shafted putter - a Leyland `Silver Trophy` - bought, 2nd hand, from Tom Gillatt, professional at Chorley G.C.for 30 bob (£1.50 ) in 1962, when playing proper golf at Hall o`th Hill, Chorley.
The last time I played crazy golf was many years ago, but don`t remember where !!
The Ladies outnumber the Gents in this photo 6 to 5.
It will be great if we can meet and play, as suggested by Janice on 20th Nov.`12 P-a-D.

Sorry caaaaaalllllllllmmmmm!!!!
Thankyou from far away in Australia to the friends of Haigh Country Park for all your efforts. It is a wonderful picture to see all your smiling faces, cheers and Merry Christmas to you all, Lizzie. xx

That hole dosent look to crazy to me.


Comment by Janice on 10th December 2012 at 09:30
Very good to see this. We will without doubt have the Wigan World Photo-a-Day Crazy Golf Tournament, Ernest (what a mouthful). Look forward to it. Do you still play golf? No rules when I play Lizzie down under ;)

Best efforts always from voluntary workers


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 10th December 2012 at 13:33
Yes, Janice, I still play golf. Have had free golf from when I was 80 ! Have to travel 8 miles in my car to Chorley G.C. I shudder to think how much per mile it costs !
Mick. I agree, if that hole is finished, but you have to have some easy !!

Well done to the volunteers - especially Uncle John (behind the gentleman on the right) and Auntie Edna (fourth back on the left).


Comment by Ken R on 10th December 2012 at 16:41
Well done Friends of Haigh Hall. Is that a "Tiger in the Woods"


Comment by Lizzie down under on 10th December 2012 at 19:23
Good morning all especially my sister Jo who will read this when she gets to work, morning Jo :-)!!!
Janice we go to a lovely seaside hotel at a place called Victor Harbor and they have Crazy Golf there, and yes sometimes the rules get a little bent lol!!! Good luck in the tournament to all who play and just watch out I will be looking over your shoulder!!! Cheers!!!!!

ernest pyke - i too often get that message when at haigh stables trying to use the public wifi, you can usually go to addressed but it will not let you search ANYTHING through google, i have emailed them in the past asking about it but have never got a reply.

ProCo in wigan are in the process of making a load of brand new holes for FOHCP to use. they will be ready in the new year. so it won't just be restored back to how it used to be, it is being improved, with brand new holes and hopefully brand new equipment :D


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 10th December 2012 at 21:49
Great to see this back in action! Nice pic too Ben!


Comment by Lizzie down under on 11th December 2012 at 22:02
Ernest, the putters for Crazy Golf or Mini Golf as it is called over here are the same. The rule is if your golf ball is up against the edge of the fairway you can use the putter sideways to measure and place the ball so it is puttable again. Hope that makes sense, cheers!!


Comment by Tony Haslam on 13th December 2012 at 18:32
Hi Lizzie down under. I have been to Victor Harbour many time and know the Mayor. We went in Jan this year. My daughter lives just outside Adelaide at Seafod Meadows. Are you near there. She used to live at Shiedow Park. We have been oz 8 times and wih was there now in the warm weather. Freezing here.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 14th December 2012 at 00:02
Hey Tony!! Fancy that!!! Your daughter lives way over the other side of town, we are in the north east suburbs. Victor as we call it is very close to my heart as my late Dad lived just up the road at Maslin Beach. Cheers!!
