The challenges of minigolf development in different African countries will be discussed during the historic two-day forum, including organization of the minigolf education programs in Africa, different investment projects on minigolf development in Africa, possible WMF participation in Minigolf-Kids foundation and other social campaigns. It is also planned to elect the AMSF Executive Committee and the AMSF Representatives to the WMF Executive Committee and the WMF Technical Committee.

There are a lot of minigolf courses in different African countries, but there are also many opportunities to develop minigolf from a ‘street’ level towards a professional sport and Continental Championships in the near future.
