There’s something about crazy golf that just never gets old. From its mild sense of nostalgia, to the inevitable declarations that “that was actually quite fun” once the game is over, it’s a game that seems to be passed down from generation to generation to enjoy.
And luckily for us, there’s plenty of uber-cool courses to try out across the region. From UFOs to the most magical game of mini golf around, we’ve rounded up the very best places to play crazy golf in Yorkshire.
1. Hole in Wand, York

Boasting nine wand-erful holes, the family-friendly game features nods to the Wizarding World throughout, with tons of quirky and out-there sets – each of which are completely different from the next.
