The great indoor course at near Birmingham hosts our final BMGA stroke play tournament of 2018. Already there are many of Cat 1 in the participating in this tournament, as well as title winners outside of Cat 1, meaning a bumper load of points this weekend.
The final placings will also be decided upon, so the question is...Are you competition ready?
On Saturday, there will be exclusive practice on The Lost Hut trail course for those taking part from 8am –12pm (Day rate of £10.) You can of course practice the rest of the day but you will need to be aware of the public on the course so as always don’t hold them up.
Sunday, the course will be open at 8am with an estimated tournament finish time of 1:30pm (at the latest.) Three rounds, on The Lost Hut Trail will decide the Star City Open trophy winner.
As it is the 10th tournament at SC there will be some ‘ten’ related prizes. The theme this year is ‘Bright and Bermudan’ so please pack some great colourful clothing (Christmas related if you wish...) the course staff will judge and present the prize for the winner!
This year we would like to trial a ‘Quiet Zone’ around holes 11, 17, 18. It’s really important that you’re aware of anyone taking a shot at the 18th before you make your way up the stairs to hole 11, and please minimize the conversation around those holes, we’ll all appreciate it!
Mobile phones on mute or off, and please be aware of the effect your ‘Ace call’ has on the other participants.
Prize fund will be posted Saturday evening, along with the groups for the first two shot-gun rounds. The third and final round will be a rolling split start at hole 1 and hole 10 depending on the participation numbers and your place after round 2.
Course specific rules will be covered in the tournament briefing, but please ask EC if you are practising during Saturday.
If you haven't already entered then you have until 12pm on Saturday to let the BMGA know :
Entry is £20 for adults and £10 for juniors.
Scott, Chairman of the BMGA said
“I hope we all have a great weekend in Birmingham, and that the competition is close but friendly as we bring the 2018 season to a end. As always and in advance, I’d like to thank John and the rest of the staff at for their hospitality and long support of the British Minigolf Association.”
