That would be excellent. I've been leveraging the BMGA site for information about individual tournament but would love a season long wrap-up!

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.”

Simon Tompkins, of Hastings Adventure Golf, said: “This is our fourteenth year hosting the World Crazy Golf Championships. It’s a highlight in Hastings, with fierce competition and lots of fun.”

The winner in the novice category picks up £750 and the pro winner £1000. In addition, there are runner up prizes for both categories. For the first time this year, Hastings Adventure Golf will offer specially adapted putters for disabled entrants.

Entry opens now, via www.minigolf.org.uk.
