CRAZY golfers are swinging into town after a new course opened up at East Croydon station for the summer. Putt Putt #2, created by art collective Turf Projects, opened last Friday (July 19) in Lansdowne Walk, next to the new footbridge, and will be open from 11am-5pm from Wednesday-Saturday until August 30. Turf Project founder Alice Cretney invited different artists to create their own holes to try and better last year's inaugural Putt Putt in Exchange Square. She said: "I live in Croydon and I don't think there is enough contemporary art here. There is a great fine art course at Croydon College and I want to start projects which will encourage them to produce that art in this town." Artist Alice, 25, curated the nine-hole course with David McLeavy and will be manning the exhibition during its opening hours. It will be free for members of the public to play throughout and there will also be family-friendly workshops at the course. Alice added: "Putt Putt has come out of an interest in artists working to a brief and also art's relationship with sport. "I've been interested in crazy golf for about three years now and it allows some very complex and interesting pieces to be made." For more information on the project visit www.turfprojects.com
