I'm not disappointed by what I see it's well maintained and little bit for the kids to do tennis/crazy golf and little train station attached to go across a short distance to liesure centre it's not a day attraction but a good way to sit and have a cup of tea while the kids play golf etc.

I have been playing, mostly at weekends, on this par three pitch and putt course for around five years. I play with three friends and we start out early in the morning just about the time the affable attendant is returning from putting out the flags and collecting the detritus from the course, mostly empty beer cans and crisp packets, left by revellers the evening before. I play with three old friends and we have our golf balls labelled as Grumpy, Sneezy and Bashful. My sobriquet is an obvious and true one as is Sneezy who suffers from hay fever in the high summer which gives Bashful – a complete misnomer if ever there was one – and I something of an advantage at that time of the year. I have played on much smarter links with smoother greens and well managed rough, but that is the point of Norfolk Gardens, it is rugged and unpredictable from one weekend to the next and often quite difficult with long grass and greens infested with early morning worm casts and the wind always seems to be coming from the wrong direction. Even though each of the three of us has dropped a hole in one from time to time, each of us still has his own least favourite hole and mine is number ONE (68 yds), fail there and it ruins the round for me! However, we do have a collective nemesis, hole FOUR (77yds). This beast has a large clump of brambles and tall trees obscuring the flag and I, as have my companions, been in and out of those woods more times than a squirrel. My own particular favourite is SIX (114yds), the longest hole and one I have played several times in two strokes using a forbidden wood which, because of my sylphlike body, is needed to punch the ball that extra bit up and over the lofty trees situated only yards in front of the tee. The round takes about 45 minutes depending on how much time we spend looking for lost balls and is well worth the five quid (concessions are available for the over 60s and under 16s) charged for the nine holes. An average score of par is more than acceptable. Afterwards there is the adjacent Putting Green Café, if open early enough, or the nearby East Beach Café both of which serve a hearty breakfast, a good cup of Joe and you can chat about how well or how badly you all played… And, sometimes, on a wet summers day that whistle of the nearby miniature railway engine will mock you. Open all year round it can be quite a challenge and is always good fun, well worth a visit.

Another great place to visit with its miniature train and crazy golf so ideal for families. There is a very nice cafe where I can recommend the coffee. Tennis courts and a putting course also available

There is not much to do in Littlehampton but the crazy golf always manages to attract a good following even in the rain. This is a well kept attraction and all than ks to the Council for keeping it running

Great fun for all the family, The wind from the sea makes it challenging at times. We took our nephew aged 15, and our grandson aged 4, both enjoyed it very much.
