£4,500 prize fund up for grabs with entries closing at midnight tonight (Saturday 3rd June)


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).

 

Entries are now open for all players but close at midnight today - Saturday 3rd June - and full details of the competition and how to enter can be found here

 

And if you are thinking about taking part but have yet to enter then why not read our final player quote and see what the 2013 Champion Olivia Prokopova from the Czech Republic says about the event. Olivia made her debut in 2005 and will be making her 13th appearance at the competition next weekend…

 

Olivia Prokopova (debut 2005) – “The World Crazy Golf Championship is next to US Masters and US Open one of my matter of the heart. Every year I have this tournament in my calendar of Major tournaments. Sometimes I remember on my first start in year 2003 when I was eight and I was in a third place behind two British legends of minigolf Tim Davies and John McIver. Second memories is on year 2013 when I won this tournament although the weather was crazy I played my best on this tournament. But this crazy weather and every great players and organizers are this what connect me with city Hastings. I don´t say the names of anybody because I don´t want to forget anybody and I just say: I like everybody there and the time there with you and I want come back every year as I can. This year I want say good luck for everybody, good nerves and some sunny days."

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.


A list of entrants (and results when the tournament starts) can be found at the following link http://bmga.co.uk/2017WCGC/result.htm

 

The BMGA tour will return again to Hastings for the final Major of the year in July (over the weekend of 8th and 9th) as the Pirate Course hosts the 2017 British Open. Full details of the event and how to enter can be found here.
