The popular Birmingham complex hosted the final event of the 2016 BMGA season
The 2016 British Minigolf Association season closed on Sunday 4th December when the Adventure Island Mini Golf course at Star City, Birmingham hosted the BMGA Star City Open. Players from across the UK took to the recently relaid greens at Star City for three rounds (54-holes) on the challenging Lost Hut Trail 18-hole indoor course.
Michael Smith won the event having beaten Martin Greenhead in a sudden death play off to take the title. Chris Smith finished third.
Sean Homer, Chairman of the BMGA, said "We had another great event and it's proving to be a very popular end of season venue for us on the tour. The newly relaid and redesigned holes have made a great course even better and I'm sure I speak for all of the players by saying we look forward to returning in 2017 once again for the BMGA tour climax. John and the team in Birmingham always make us feel very welcome and the event has become one of the highlights of our calendar as a result"

At Adventure Island Mini Golf there are two 18 hole courses. Both of these have been designed and built by Castle Golf of Arizona and provide fun challenges to everyone whether you are an expert golfer or have never held a club before!
Hidden Cove Challenge takes you around the base of our dormant volcano and then past 'Adventure Falls' and on into 'Lost Settlers Cave'. You will briefly escape the cave before having to return to finish your round and take the 19th Challenge, a one shot challenge, which, if you succeed will win you a free round at Adventure Island Mini Golf! The Hidden Cove Challenge also has full disabled access and pushchairs can easily be taken around this course.
Lost Hut Trail starts on a ridge above the Hidden Cove Challenge and winds its way passed towers of rock and through old island villages. It then reaches the highest point of the complex with great views over the entire island towards the volcano in the distance. You will pass through an abandoned Tiki Lodge village before trying to putt off the mountain and enter 'Lost Settlers Cave' for the 19th Challenge, the second one shot challenge at Adventure Island Mini Golf that could mean you win a free round!
