Wroxham Barns’ 18-hole championship minigolf course hosts the British Minigolf Association’s English Open for the second time on Sunday, June 5th. The tournament comprises three rounds with play starting at 9.30am. 

The English Open was first staged at Wroxham Barns in 2009 when Nick Chitty from Hornsey, won the competition with a total of 95 in the three rounds played, setting the course record of 29 with his first round.

Local golfers are very welcome to take part. A special Wroxham Barns trophy, created by resident sculptor Sue Windley, will be presented to the top East Anglian golfer.

The entry fee is £20. Entry forms can be downloaded from the BMGA’s website, www.minigolf.org.uk, or call 07910 243841.

Ian Russell, Director Wroxham Barns said: “We are really looking forward to welcoming the British Minigolf Association back to Wroxham Barns. The golf course, which opened in August 2008, is proving a real hit with visitors. It is great fun, but is also very challenging.”

Sean Homer Chairman BMGA said: “I am delighted that we are returning to Wroxham Barns for the third year following the English Open in 2009 and British Championships in 2010. All of the players who entered the competitions were full of praise for the course, the surroundings and the welcome we received from the team who run the barns.”

Sean added “Our competitions this year have ring fenced prize money for novice players, ‘category 3’ players as we class them and it would be great to see local and new players come along to Wroxham Barns for the competition.”
