£4,500 prize fund up for grabs as the second BMGA Major of the year draws ever closer!


Hastings Adventure Golf and the British Minigolf Association are getting ready for all comers to 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. 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 novice title looks to be a very open event with currently 12 players signed up with the majority making their debut this year. The overall title also promises to be a classic battle with a strong field of players already confirmed including former champion Olivia Prokopova from the Czech Republic, previous runner's up Andy Exall, Sean Homer, John McIver, Nuno Cunha and James Rutherford, and they, along with 2017 Tour winners Adam Kelly and Steve Lovell and all the other players taking part will have their eyes set on lifting the trophy on Sunday afternoon.


Sean Homer, Chairman of the BMGA said "The anticipation for this years competition is incredibly high and we are looking forward to a great competition in June, our second Major of the season. 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."


Entries are now open for all players (scheduled to close in 2 weeks on Saturday 3rd June) and full details of the competition and how to enter can be found here

 

The organisers expect a wealth of Nutters with Putters to descend on the Sussex seafront in June


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. All players will receive a new event ball for the competition - these will be available at the tournament hut from Friday morning.
