Evening Mini Golfers,

We're looking forward to hosting this again and seeing another Champion put on the oversize Tweed jacket.

Just to clear something up (not a whinge!) - as a small local course, we only open weekends and school holidays until we get to the summer season when we open all week weather permitting.

As such, until the Easter Holidays, we're only open at weekends which is our advertised openings and normal for us. We can, by arrangement, open outside of these times for groups and we do open for student groups etc as we did last week. Due to insurance issues and the terms of our lease, we do not / can not allow play outside these times. We know our low fence allows easy access and we're more than happy for people to start practising early (or staying late) on 'official' practice / competition days as many of you like to get to courses at the crack of dawn!

So, we can arrange some group practice sessions easily enough but 'ninja' sessions are going to cause us a headache with the Council's Estates Department.

Thanks for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you next Month

cheers, Ant

BMGA 2015 British Masters – Players Info

Splash Point Mini Golf are proud to be hosting The Masters for the 4th time in Worthing.
We hope all the entrants enjoy their day and the following information may help.

Location
The course is located in Denton Gardens in Worthing, just off the A259 Brighton Road. We don’t have a postcode but if you’re using a sat-nav, BN11 2ES will get you close. We’re between the Pier and the new Splash Point Pool.

Public Transport
The 700 bus stops on the Brighton Rd just behind the course and Worthing and East Worthing station are both a 10 minute stroll away. We can’t decide which station is actually closer.

Parking
There is a pay and display car park alongside the course. It’s about £6.50 to park all day. On Sunday, on street parking is free and if you arrive quite early, you should get a space.

Food & Drink
Sunny Café and Coast Café are both outside on the prom and will be open all day. The latter gets very busy so Sunny’s may be a better bet if you want to grab a quick bite between rounds. Toilets are located at Coast café in the converted beach chalet. Alternatively, there are toilets about 2mins walk along the prom in the direction of the pier.


Non-playing partners, family etc
Not everyone wants to watch you play minigolf! If watching you take a 6 on the 7th gets dull, Worthing has plenty to offer in the way of shops, cafes etc. The town centre is a 2minute walk away best reached via Warwick St from the rear of the course.
Out on the prom by Coast café are the artists’ studios with more opened this year.

The Splash Point Swimming pool is just next door to the course and those of a hardy disposition who like swimming can try the sea which, at high tide, is about 50m due south…

The Southern Pavilion of the pier has been recently refurbished and Tourist Information can now be found in the Denton Lounge at the Pier’s entrance.

For those who enjoy ‘buttons’, the pier has a small arcade but the presence of Air Hockey is unknown.

The Course
The course is unchanged from previous years. It was jet washed in early March but the weather has been inclement since then. We will endeavour to get the felt as clean as possible before Sunday but it won’t be pristine. The last time it was pristine was approximately 5th May 2010 – opening day.

We unfortunately do not have any indoor areas to store bags etc. The kiosk will need to stay as clear as possible for the organisers’ equipment – thanks for your understanding with this.

We hope you enjoy the tournament and your day in Sunny (!) Worthing

I think you said there was air hockey there, a while ago. There was one there when I was there anyway; although I'll be absent.

I wonder if that old automation that Brad likes in the pier arcade has been fixed yet?

Congratulations Nuno Cunha!

Thank you to everyone who came down - we always look forward to hosting this weekend and it was great to see you all.

We're pleased the course delivered another great winner and any of the top 3 could have won it coming into the 16th on the last round.

Hopefully we'll see some of you in July for our Open.
