British Minigolf season tees-off with the BMGA Star City Open 2011 at Adventure Island Minigolf, Star City, Birmingham

The 2011 British Minigolf Association season begins on Sunday 23rd January 2011 when the Adventure Island Minigolf course at Star City, Birmingham hosts the BMGA Star City Open.

Over 30 British Minigolf Association (BMGA) Tour players, along with a number of local players, are expected to compete over three rounds (54-holes) on the two 18-hole indoor Adventure Minigolf courses.

The BMGA Tour consists of Minigolf ranking events that take place at Minigolf, Crazy Golf and Adventure Golf courses across the UK. Last year there were 22 BMGA Tour competitions and a total of 15 players lifted BMGA Tour titles.

Heading into the 2011 season Chris Harding from Great Barr, Birmingham currently sits atop the BMGA Order of Merit Rankings, in addition to becoming a two-time Castle Golf World Crazy Golf Champion in 2010. Oxford’s Michael Smith was ranked number one in last year’s BMGA Season-Only Ranking list.

With the Star City Open competition, the Adventure Island Minigolf course at Star City will have played host to three national ranking minigolf tournaments, having hosted the BMGA’s first-ever indoor minigolf tournament in January 2009 when the BMGA Star City Open was won by Birmingham’s Chris Harding, followed by the 2010 BMGA National Open, also won by Harding.

Adventure Island Minigolf Manager John Whitehead said “It is fantastic to again be hosting the first indoor BMGA event of the 2011 season here at Adventure Island in Star City, Birmingham. The courses have been improved since last year's competition and all course records reset so there is a lot to play for in this year's event. We are sure it will be a great weekend of minigolf!"
