Full details of the competition along with the list of current confirmed entrants and an entry form can be found at http://www.minigolf.org.uk/joomla/index.php?option=com_eventlist&view=details&id=97&Itemid=56

The course is offering a day practice rate all season of £10 for unlimited play on the course to all BMGA Tour Pros and entrants to the British Championships can also take advantage of free practice at the course on Friday 10 May (please note the course will be closed whilst the Pro-Am - details below - takes place from 6pm - 9pm on the Friday).

As well as the 3rd Charity Hole In One Challenge of the season (taking place on Sunday), the BMGA and Wroxham Barns are linking up on the Friday evening for a Charity Pro-Am event, with all proceeds going to the MacMillan Cancer support fund. 18 teams of 4 will be taking part (consisting of 3 local players and 1 Tour Pro) and the team with the lowest combined score across 18 holes of the course will be the winners!!

To help with the promotion of the event (and in turn to raise as much money as possible) we are keen to confirm the BMGA players taking part in the Pro-Am as soon as possible. If you wish to take part (whether or not you are playing in the British Championships) then please contact me via email on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
