Just 4 weeks to go until Hastings host the 15th World Crazy Golf Championships 2017 PDF Print E-mail

£4,500 prize fund up for grabs for what promises to be the biggest World Crazies ever!

Hastings Adventure Golf and the British Minigolf Association are delighted to announce the details of the 2017 World Crazy Golf Championships taking place over the weekend of 10th and 11th June, attracting players from across the UK and Europe, all competing for the biggest prize fund ever in the competitions history. As well as the £1000 for the overall winner and an additional £2,000 prize fund for the top players overall, the 2017 event also has a purse of £1,500 exclusively for the novice players, with the best placed novice picking up £500 at the event. And if a novice wins the overall event, then they will also pick up the £1000 for the winner as well!! A perfect incentive for new players who want to take part in this fantastic competition.

Simon Tompkins, of Hastings Adventure Golf, said: “This is our fifteenth year hosting the World Crazy Golf Championships. It’s a highlight in Hastings, with fierce competition but also lots of fun.”

For the first time this year, Hastings Adventure Golf will offer specially adapted putters for disabled entrants.

In another first for the competition, the organisers opened up an early exclusive entry window for subscribers to the Hastings Adventure Golf newsletter and entries to the general public (including BMGA Tour Pros and Internationals) are now being taken.

Entries are now open for all players and the entry form can be found at

For the 2017 event, a ‘Novice’ player is classed as any plyer taking part in their first or second World Crazy Golf Championships. NB. International players who are currently or have previously been members of any recognised World Minigolf Sport federations are not classed as ‘novice’ players. Any player eligible for the novice category will be identified on the entry list with a (N).


The organisers expect the biggest field of Nutters with Putters to descend on the Sussex seafront for the new June date


Entry fees for the competition, the second Major of the season are as follows:

  • £35 for Tour Pros
  • £40 for Non Tour Pros

The event will tee off on the Saturday morning and each player will play 4 rounds on the Saturday and a further 2 rounds on the Sunday. There will then be a final round for the top 18 novices and top 18 overall using the legendary crazy crazy rules. Full details of this will be communicated on the competition weekend.

As always, the entry fee includes free practice at the course on the Friday. The official players pack will be circulated to all players the week before the competition, detailing all relevant information along with day 1 groups and tee off times and the confirmed prize fund split.

The official ball for the competition (the only ball that any entrant can use for the competition) will be the same as used in the 2016 event - a WMF sanctioned golf ball, available to all entrants (theirs to keep!) as part of the competition entry.

The course are offering a £12 day rate for all players on the production of a valid 2017 BMGA Tour Pro card.

Sean Homer, Chairman of the BMGA said "The anticipation for this years competition is incredibly high and we are looking forward to what we expect to be the biggest field ever for the competition. It's also brilliant news to once again have the additional ring fenced prize money for the novice players - this will add another exciting aspect to the 2017 competition and should prove to be a superb incentive for new players who want to take part in a World Championships. The World Crazy Golf Championships has been a great way for players to experience the excitement and fun of a minigolf tournament - it was my first event way back in 2005 - and continues to be one of the highlights of our season. The hospitality and welcome we all receive from the team at Hastings makes this a tournament to remember for everyone who takes part and we look forward to welcoming everyone in June."

Finland’s Pasi Aho, of the World Minigolf Sport Federation said: “This is a key tournament in the international mini-golf calendar. Uniquely it is an opportunity for rising minigolf stars to perfect their skills alongside some of the world’s top professionals.”
