I've been watching the Twenty 20 this afternoon and was wondering what we could do to create a similar derivative of standard minigolf that would echo the excitement of the T20. The cricket version is all about big hitting and providing a more explosive format for the public to get interested in.
Any ideas of a format for Minigolf so we can have a KMGC T20 tournament?
Aces are our big trump card so what can we do to push up the rate of these and speed the game up?
A few ideas:
- move the tee off point 50% closer to the hole (i.e tee off half way along the lane)
- Get rid of the 6 shot (max 7) strokes - limit to 2 or 3 shots (or you get a 7?)
- Restrict ball use (level playing field)
- Look at using crazy crazy type rules - multi balls in play
Just a few (possibly hairbrained) ideas - but no doubt there are more. I would reckon we could have a pretty good crack at doing something different for our next KIT day...
