Players shall be in Hastings from Friday 7th July for the Player’s Championship along with Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th July for the British Open.

Sean Homer, BMGA Chairman comments “It's been a busy few months on the tour and what better way to complete our three Majors in three months than with the eagerly anticipated British Open at the spiritual home of UK Minigolf in Hastings. Every tournament that we host in Hastings is always a classic and the upcoming Open promises to keep the trend going. It will be wonderful to greet our International friends again at the course along with our domestic players from across the country and all of our Minigolf clubs. Roll on the 8th!!“ 

 

The weekend will also see the conclusion of the 2017 BMGA British Matchplay Championships. The remaining quarter final matches will be completed before the semi-finals and final take place over the course of the weekend. http://www.minigolf.org.uk/joomla/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=814:2017-british-matchplay-championship-round-3-draw-confirmed&catid=1:latest-news&Itemid=105&Itemid=60
