WORLD CRAZY GOLF CHAMPIONSHIPS 2017
Minigolf hopefuls worldwide are polishing their putters for this year’s World Crazy Golf Championships in June. There is a total prize fund of £4,500 up for grabs, and the two-day minigolf tournament is uniquely open to complete novices and top international players.
Held in Hastings on June 10 and 11, competitors must beat the windmill and watermill as well as negotiate the bends, twists and ramps on the traditional seaside course at Hastings Adventure Golf – dubbed the ‘spiritual home of crazy golf’ by the British Minigolf Association. Minigolf hopefuls have until 2 June to register to play.
Finland’s Pasi Aho, of the World Minigolf Sport Federation said: “This is a key tournament in the international mini-golf calendar. Uniquely it is an opportunity for rising minigolf stars to perfect their skills alongside some of the world’s top professionals.”
Simon Tompkins, of Hastings Adventure Golf, said: “This is our fourteenth year hosting the World Crazy Golf Championships. It’s a highlight in Hastings, with fierce competition but also lots of fun.”
The winner in the novice category picks up £500 and the pro winner £1000. In addition, there are runner up prizes for both categories.
For the first time this year, Hastings Adventure Golf will offer specially adapted putters for disabled entrants.
