World Crazy Golf Championships

Coming to Hastings

World Crazy Golf Championships Minigolf hopefuls worldwide are polishing off their putters for the 2017 World Crazy Golf Championships in June. The two-day minigolf extravaganza uniquely attracts complete novices and top international players, with a prize fund of £4,500 up for grabs.  

Held in Hastings on June 10 and 11, competitors must beat the windmill and watermill as well as negotiate the bends, twists and ramps on the traditional seaside course at Hastings Adventure Golf - dubbed the ‘spiritual home of crazy golf’ by the British Minigolf Association.

Last year, Britain’s minigolf number one, Michael Smith, won the world title – four strokes clear of the British Minigolf Association (BMGA) chairman, Sean Homer. 

Leicester’s Ed Pope led the way in the novice category.

Finland’s Pasi Aho, of the World Minigolf Sport Federation said: “This is a key tournament in the international mini–golf calendar. Uniquely it is an opportunity for rising minigolf stars to perfect their skills alongside some of the world’s top professionals.”
