Countdown to the World Adventure Golf Masters - just 5 days to go!! PDF Print E-mail
  
With less than a week to go, the competitors for the first World Adventure Golf Masters at the Pirate Course in Hastings are starting to arrive.

The excitement is building as Great Britain players prepare to take on some of the finest minigolfers from across the World when the event starts on Friday. We will be updating the progress of the event over the course of the week in the build up to what promises to be a superb competition.

An overview of the event, the schedule and some of the key information can be found below:

Entry Fee
: Entry to the event is £50 which includes free practice on Wed & Thursday, entry into the official opening ceremony on Thursday evening, 2 days play (minimum of 6 rounds) and the closing ceremony on Saturday evening (details below).

Practice Rates: For Monday 9th and Tuesday May 10th, entrants into the WAGM can practice at a rate of £2.75 GBP per day, per player, on the Tournament Course (payable to the course via the hut). The course will remain open to the public those days. Wednesday May 11th & Thursday May 12th there is zero charge for practice for tournament entrants and the course will be closed to the public from 9am to 5pm throughout those days. Players can continue to practice after 5pm but the course will be open to the public from this point onwards. 

Opening reception: The WMF & BMGA will be hosting the official welcome and reception at the new conference suite at the White Rock Hotel in Hastings (http://www.thewhiterockhotel.co.uk/) at 6.30pm on Thursday 12th May. There will be a welcome glass of wine for everyone and as well as introductions and speeches. All players must attend the opening reception as we will be running through all the key rulings, groupings and timetable for the following 2 days. Guests of the players are very welcome. It will be a great way to meet the other competitors in advance of the competition start on Friday morning and a nice way to get the competition officially underway.  

Competition days: Friday and Saturday. Play will tee-off with group 1 from hole 1 (every round will be a rolling start) at 9am prompt on both days. All players will play 4 rounds on Friday and 2 rounds on Saturday (all strokeplay).  A seventh round on Saturday will be contested amongst the top 6 National teams for the team champions A final eight round on Saturday will be contested by the top 18 players after 6 rounds for the overall title of World Adventure Golf Masters Champion!!

Prizes: There will be prizes for all category winners (the leading player after 6 rounds for each of the relevant categories – Male, Senior Male, Female, Junior) along with the overall top players after 7 rounds as well as the official trophies for the team and overall competition winners. The Prize money and full details will be confirmed on Thursday evening at the opening reception. 

Closing ceremony: The White Rock Hotel (http://www.thewhiterockhotel.co.uk/) will also be hosting the closing ceremony from 6.00pm on Saturday evening after the competition has finished. There will be a buffet and more speeches but overall will be a nice informal end to what promises to be a great tournament. Again guests of the players are very welcome.

Approved balls
– no course balls will be allowed in the event or any standard golf balls. Only WMF approved balls are eligible at any WMF event and the WAGM is no different.
 

Official WAGM ball – there will be an exclusive official WAGM ball available to purchase through the BMGA from Monday 9th May at the course for £15.00 each.

World Adventure Golf Masters ball


Stock is limited and the ball will also be sold at future BMGA events this season (while stocks last).
 

This is the first time the event has taken place and is also the first WMF event to take place in the UK. Keith Kellard will be on hand from Tuesday as the Great Britain official coach and all of the players in attendance will be happy to help with any lines, hints and tips on how to play the course.

I am sure we will have a terrific competition and will see some outstanding minigolf across the course of the event and above all, will be hugely enjoyable for all of us taking part.
