Crazy golf could be coming to Norwich, after plans were lodged to create an 18-hole course at Eaton Park.
Fans of the popular game currently face a long drive to places such as Great Yarmouth or Wroxham Barns for a round of crazy golf, but Attleborough man Rob Trown is hoping to change that.
He wants to turn two unused bowling greens, near the Colman Road entrance to the park, into the crazy golf course.
The course would be open in daylight hours on about 180 days of the year, over the summer, half-term, spring weekends and autumn weekends.
He also plans to create an 18-hole putting green on a third unused bowling green in the park.

Mr Trown said: 'I'd rung a few councils up with the idea of a crazy golf course and the city council offered me the three unused bowling greens.
'So far, everyone seems to be on board with it. The challenge will be getting it through the planning system in time for the summer, because that's when I'm looking to get it up and running.'

The idea has been welcomed by the Friends of Eaton Park. Chairman Helen Mitchell said: 'We are very keen to see the park used and enjoyed by as many other people as possible and this will be a great addition to what is already a strong offer.
'During the summer, Eaton Park provides a good alternative to the beach and crazy golf will only add to its attraction.'
Norwich City Council will need to make a decision on the plans.
