4. Eaton Park, Norwich

A simple, but surprisingly tricky course. While it lacks windmills and waterfalls, its humps, bumps and angles make it challenging, but fun.

Another course with a pirate theme. Navigate through treacherous waters, exploding cannons and hungry crocodiles.

6. Congo Rapids, Easton

Located near Norfolk Showground, this course sees you joined on your round by an elephant, snakes, tigers and a real plane.

7. Adventure Island Golf, Mundesley

A 12-hole themed course, complete with lakes, waterfalls and more. If you want an extra change, floodlit evening rounds are available.

8. Pirate's Cove, Great Yarmouth

Avast! A seaside course with a piratical theme. This swashbuckling 18-hole adventure course tells putters a nautical story as they go.

9. Lost World Adventure Golf, Hemsby

An Aztec-themed course that is a personal favourite of Mr Gottfried. He described it as being like an Indiana Jones film set.

10. Hollywood Adventure Golf, Great Yarmouth

One of the few indoor mini-golf courses in the country. Mr Gottfried said he was impressed with its use of optical illusions.
