The first competition of the year will be an international affair as the Pirate Adventure Golf course has once again been selected as the venue for the WMF World Adventure Golf Masters tournament that last year saw players from six countries competing over two days. The 2012 event will be taking place on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th May with a tee-off time of 9am on Saturday. In the 2011 finals Germany won the team title, with Great Britain in second and third place. Germany’s Martin Stöckle won the overall individual title. Nations set to take part include Great Britain, Sweden, Germany, Kosovo and the USA.
On Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th June the BMGA British Championships will be contested over seven rounds of play on the Pirate Adventure Golf course. The defending champion is James Rutherford from Cambridge.
On Sunday 14th October all three of the seafront courses will be the setting for the Planet Hastings Crazy Golf Club Open. Later in the month the biggest competition in Crazy Golf will take place as the tenth-annual Castle Golf World Crazy Golf Championships is played out on the 18-hole Arnold Palmer Crazy Golf course on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th October. Oxford’s Michael Smith is the reigning champion of both events.
David Hartley, Company Manager at Hastings Adventure Golf said “Hastings Adventure Golf is delighted to once again be selected as hosts for the WMF World Adventure Golf Masters. The Pirate Adventure Golf course will be the focus for this particular tournament and all eyes will be on the top players to see if anybody can get close to the course record of 24 shots to complete the 18-hole course which was set in last year's tournament. It demonstrates the amazingly high standard of these top international players.”
David added “All in all it’s a busy season to say the least! The Hastings team though are delighted with this. We are well aware that the choice of courses both nationally and internationally to select from for the World Adventure Golf Masters is immense and we are honoured to be the choice for the second year running. We love these minigolf events as they are fun to stage and attract huge interest from the public as well. They also bring a richness of characters to the courses and to Hastings as a town.”
BMGA Chairman Sean Homer said “The 2012 season promises to be another excellent year for the British Minigolf Association tour and the BMGA is delighted to be making its return to Hastings for a number of international and domestic competitions this year.”
