There are about 300 recesses on one golf ball, and thanks to them, the ball flies three times farther than a smooth one. ... Balls of the same size...

Hardenberg and Mainz win D-Bundesliga

Although the champion of the 1. Bundesliga, BGS Hardenberg, had already been certain it was an exciting last league match on the challenging felt course in Bamberg on Saturday, the 25th of June 2011. Just to prove their dominating position in the 1. Bundesliga, BGS Hardenberg won the match 40 shots ahead of Dormagen-Brechten who came second. It was the sixth victory in a row, so Hardenberg won all the six matches and defended their title of the German Minigolf Men's Team Champion. Hardenberg's Walter Erlbruch also won the individual rankings followed by his team mate Alexander Geist and Arheilgen's Achim Braungart-Zink, who won the league match in Bamberg. To show again Hardenberg's dominating position there were four Hardenberg players among the first six places in the individual rankings.

The 2nd place in total had to be decided between Mainz and Arheilgen. Mainz was 2 points ahead before the match and couldn't feel save for the 2nd place in total. After 2 rounds Arheilgen was on the 2nd place of the day and Mainz on a shared 4th place, so in total Arheilgen would have been on the 2nd place in total, 3 points ahead of Mainz - if it hadn't started raining in the 3rd round. Apparently Arheilgen didn't get on so well with the changing conditions and lost 19 shots on Mainz in the 3rd round. At the end Mainz ended up on the 4th place and Arheilgen on the 5th place, so in total Mainz defended their 2nd place in the league and got the silver medal.

The fight between Bochum and Dormagen-Brechten for the 4th place in total, necessary to keep the league, couldn't have been more exciting. Actually it was a drama. At the end both teams were equal according to their points, but Dormagen-Brechten had 4001 shots in total in 6 matches - one shot behind Bochum who needed only 4000 shots. So Dormagen-Brechten has to play the relegation match just because of 1 shot more throughout the whole season. It couldn't have been more closer. Both teams went through an emotional roller coaster. Dormagen-Brechten started the match 2 points and 12 shots behind Bochum. After 3 rounds they were ahead of Bochum and also won 15 shots. In the meanwhile Mainz placed themselves between Dormagen-Brechten and Bochum, so Dormagen-Brechten was on a save 4th place in total. But Mainz couldn't keep that position in the last round, so Dormagen-Brechten could only win the missing 2 points, but lost 4 shots on Bochum in the last round. The final result in total then was 26 : 26 points and 4001 : 4000 shots - a nightmare for the Dormagen-Brechten team who fighted hard.

Niendorf had struggled to find enough players for their team during the whole season, but this time they failed to form a team. They only found 4 players being prepared to do the long trip from Hamburg to Bamberg - not enough for a team. It was certain that they would be relegated to the 2. Bundesliga anyway. With only 8 points after 5 matches they had no chance to keep the league. But nevertheless one player from Niendorf played the competition - Martin Stöckle, the recently crowned World Adventure Golf Champion. And he did well and ended up on a 9th place in the individual rankings of the day.

The womens competition wasn't that exciting but again a hard fight between the two dominating teams of the league - Mainz and Göttingen. Both won the competition together, so they ended up on a shared 1st place of the day. Olching came 3rd, followed by the "Seagulls" from Cuxhaven (the German word "Möwe" in the club's name means seagull) on the 4th place and Bensheim on the last place. So in total the womens team from Mainz was crowned the new German Minigolf Women's Team Champion, Göttingen won the silver medal and Olching reached the 3rd place. Stefanie Kern won the individual rankings followed by Nicole Gundert-Greiffendorf (both playing for the Mainz team), and Göttingen's Bianca Oberweg. The winner of the day in the women's competition was Olching's Christiane Wamboldt.
