This exciting national competition will be preceded on the evening of Friday 6th May by a charity ProAm evening run by the BMGA and the players to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support offering a great opportunity to play a round of minigolf with some of the leading players in the country and get insider knowledge from the best of the best on how to play each of the 18 holes on the course to impress family and friends. Teams of 3 amateurs and one BMGA player will play a round under BMGA rules with instruction from their professional followed by a buffet meal and the chance to relax and chat with the players.  Each team will pay £100 for the evening and are asked to seek additional sponsorship to help raise funds for this very worthwhile cause.   Players don’t need to be an experienced golfer to take part and can bring along spectators to cheer them on as well as purchase additional guest tickets for the post-match buffet.  Details are on the Wroxham Barns website, together with an application and sponsorship form or contact Wroxham Barns on 01603 783762 e-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Ian Russell, owner of the popular visitor attraction at Wroxham Barns, said “We’re delighted to host the BMGA British Championships at Wroxham Barns and look forward to a great weekend seeing some of the best British Minigolfers in action on the course.  Plus of course we hope to raise lots of money for Macmillan Cancer Support with a full-house of teams for our Pro-Am evening which should be a lot of fun”. 


Sean Homer, Chairman of the BMGA said "It's great to be coming back to Wroxham Barns for our National Championships. The course is a terrific challenge, worthy of the event and the hospitality we receive is always second to none. The Pro-Am provides a perfect curtain raiser to the main event and I look forward to what will be a fantastic fun evening at the Barns."
