Putt Your Skills To The Test With World’s Best Golfers
Some of the world’s best mini golfers will descend on The Lost City Adventure Golf at the end of June, as the British Minigolf Association (BMGA) holds its annual English Open – and anyone is welcome to join in!
The tournament, which is one of 16 events held during the year, will see more than 20 experienced players compete for cash prizes and the chance to be crowned the English Open’s ‘Sheriff of Nottingham’ for 2019.
A separate novice category is open to all ages, with medals and modest cash prizes up for grabs. A pro workshop will give entrants the chance to learn from the best before heading onto the courses.
Tournament organiser Scott Lancley, said, “We always enjoy returning to The Lost City Adventure Golf and we have a number of experienced players from the area. We’re really looking forward to seeing the players battle it out and can’t wait to find out who will be crowned this year’s Open winner the ‘Sheriff of Nottingham’ and the novice winner ‘Robin Hood’.”
Last year’s winner and UK number 1 Michael Smith will be returning to defend his title along with runners up Ed Pope and Steve Lovell, who are both currently representing Team GB in the World Adventure Masters in Sweden. Ruth Burke, the highest ranked female player and the first woman to win two BMGA titles in a single year, will also be in attendance.
Scott continued, “We’re expecting at least 18 of the top 32 players to take part so this is a great opportunity to not only play alongside some of the best minigolfers in the sport today but to also learn from the best at our pro workshop.”
The pro workshop will run from 10 – 11am on Saturday 29 June and will provide tips on how to get around the course. The English Open will take place from 8am on Sunday 30 June. Fees are £15 for adults, £10 for juniors. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place.
