British Mini Golf Championships
For most of us, the words ‘Crazy Golf ‘conjure up memories of windy, blustery days at the beach, Mr. Whippy ice creams and the ball resolutely refusing to go into the hole. The BMGA (British Mini Golf Association), however, are doing their best to put this oft-overlooked sport on the map, organizing tournaments at seaside towns all over Britain.
The biggest of these by far is the British Mini Golf Championships, which will be held this year on the weekend of the 23rd-24th June at the notorious ‘Pirate Course’ in Hastings. Entry to the event for adults is £25, and for under 18’s is only £15, and as well as the main British Champion title to compete for there are also the British Senior, Junior and Women’s Champion prizes.
Like previous Championship weekends, and indeed like any BMGA get together, the tournament promises to be a fantastic experience with players from all ages and all areas of the U.K joining for some serious fun on the course, which has been upgraded to include such wonders as a set-piece battle with two pirate ships, and a giant talking skull.
Apart from 18 holes of piratical fun, the weekend also promises (hopefully) sunny weather, hot doughnuts, a ride in on the impossibly steep Cliff Railway and maybe even a trip to the site of the famous 1066 Battle of Hastings. Whether you are eyeing up the £500 prize for British Champion or simply want to come down to Hastings for some beach side fun in the sun, the British Mini Golf Championships is an event not to miss!
