QUEST FOR GOLF (Krazy Golf) GRAND LAUNCH 

Quest For Golf at Merry Hill Westfield Shopping Centre (now called “Krazy Golf”) are holding their grand launch on Saturday 6 April and are keen to see as many BMGA members attending as possible. All BMGA members can play for free on the day and the event will run from approx 1pm to 4pm, but BMGA members would be entitled to come earlier to get some practise!

The organisers would like anyone who has played for the Great Britain Team to wear the GBR team kit and the event will see a “shoppers –v – professionals” competition, where members of the public can challenge a member of the Great Britain Minigolf Team.

There are lots of other “Quest” activities around there for players to try on the day, including “Nerf Combat” so it promises to be a great day out!
