Ever wanted to create a crazy golf course when you were a kid? Children have done just that in Stroud.

The SVA, an arts organisation in Stroud, has opened its crazy golf course at the Goods Shed featuring designs by children brought to life by artists.

“It’s really good fun because there is lots of fun things to play with. I really love the giraffe” said 7-year-old Phaedra Van de Ven.

For the last four summers the SVA has encouraged children to draw their own designs, which are then displayed in the Shed alongside the golf holes.

This year there are 18 designs on offer, many with an animal theme including a whale designed by Luna and her sisters Ayun and Millan, a giraffe designed by Lula and a stegosaurus designed by Stan.

One artist, Holly English, said: “We really hope the kids will enjoy coming to see them and join in Crazy Golf which has been inspired by their creative imagination.”

Crazy Golf is sponsored by WSP Textiles in Stroud with the supply of green felt for the golf course.

The SVA is looking for additional sponsorship to continue to make this an annual summer family event.

The course is open from now from 10am to 4pm and comes to a close on Sunday, September 2.
