City envy: we want an arty minigolf course like Nottingham

If the popularity of pop-up minigolf club Swingers is anything to go by, Londoners just love whacking tiny balls around novelty courses. Nottingham may have just got a hole in one, though: Doug Fishbone's Leisure Land Golf, which opened last week in the city's New Art Exchange, has been designed in collaboration with ten leading contemporary artists, including Lindsay Seers, Yinka Shonibare MBE and Fishbone himself, and has come to the UK following its debut at the 2015 Venice Biennale. Each artist has designed a different hole, and players pay just two quid to navigate the English Channel, terrifying checkpoints and a pair of giant shorts. It's open until June and aims to explore globalisation and the dark side of the leisure and tourism industries. Golf? Art? Social consciousness? Par-fect.

We also want New York's high tech-buses and LA's cake maze.
