Enter World Crazy Golf Championships 2018

Love crazy golf? Novice player? Professional? Entry is now open for The World Crazy Golf Championships taking place at Hastings Adventure Golf on 9 and 10 June. The competition is open to anyone and any ability – and all entrants are entitled to half price practice golf at the complex.

The global competition has two categories: one for novices* that is played only on Saturday 9 June and one for professionals played over the two days (Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 June).

Each category competes for a separate prize fund too, with the overall winner scooping £1,000 – the largest prize fund in mini golf. A separate prize fund of £1,500 is allocated to the novice category.

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 UK’s ‘spiritual home of mini golf’.

For the first time ever, the organisers are also awarding prizes for ‘Best Dressed’, ‘Personality of the Weekend’ and ‘Most Improved Player’.

Seasoned pro and twice runner-up, Sean Homer, said: “I made my debut in 2006 and got hooked on the game. I’ve played in every competition since. It’s fantastic that the Hastings’ event is still focused on what has always made it so special – a fun, exciting, inclusive and entertaining spectacle for the young, old and everyone in between.”

This is the sixteenth year that Hastings Adventure Golf has hosted the global championships – now firmly considered the pinnacle competition for crazy golfers in the UK and beyond.

Simon Tompkins of Hastings Adventure Golf said: “We want players of all abilities to get involved. The novice category is open to anyone who fancies their chances at taking home the prize fund. So get the putters polished and start practicing!”

*Players are classified as a novice if: they have not entered the World Crazy Golf Championships before; are not a recognised international player; have not finished in the top ten of a BMGA tour event.
