Good luck to everyone over the weekend... and to all those playing on this course for the first time enjoy it (there's always a chance that the next hole will be an Ace if you can forget about the previous hole!)

Thanks as ever to Sean & Marion for impeccable organisation & another fine weekend & well done to all the winners in all categories, another fine KMGC showing.
Super final between Adam & Michael, the tension on hole 13 was emanating all over the course - great stuff & well done Adam on holding your nerve over the final holes after. Commiserations to Michael, stunning scores all weekend too.
Sorry I didn't give FB a better challenge yesterday, couldn't putt to save my life although I will say that having forgotten my jacket I was F-Freezing in that wind, not much of an excuse though, I could put it down to old age. Smile
Thanks to all my playing partners all weekend, great company & I witnessed some great minigolf. Strokes was rightly mentioned as the best course in the land, Brian, Matt & Frankie keep it superbly & it's always a pleasure to be there & always will be.
Good luck in Sweden if you're going & see you all at Bluewater!

British Championships report: History made as Adam Kelly wins the first BMGA Major of the season

Great Britain Junior Adam Kelly crowned British Champion in Margate

The two day BRITISH CHAMPIONSHIPS were contested at Strokes Adventure Golf Course in Kent across the weekend of 10th and 11th May. After nine rounds of outstanding minigolf, Adam Kelly (Kent Minigolf Club) made British minigolf history by becoming the first UK junior to win a BMGA Major Championship. As well as the overall title, Adam made it 5 junior Championship wins in a row in his final season as a junior player.

Adam was pushed all the way across the weekend by UK number 1 player Michael Smith with the final two rounds of the day seeing the lead change a number of times as both players fought for the title. After a tense final 6 holes, Adam finished the tournament with a hole in one at the final lane to finish the event with a superb 31 under par for the competition, beating the former British Champion Michael by 2 shots.

Speaking after picking up the trophy and gold medal Adam said “The fact that I am now a major winner hasn't quite sunk in yet. I'd like to thank Matt, Brian and Frankie for welcoming us to such a wonderful venue for the weekend. It makes the victory that much more special to me that it was at the best and most challenging course on tour, where I made my debut six years ago. Massive thanks also go to Sean and Marion Homer for running the tournament so smoothly whilst also putting on great performances on the course. I'd also like to thank the KMGC along with everyone else who offered me support over the weekend. Congratulations to Sean and Brenda for their wins this weekend. And lastly I hope this is the beginning of a great season, and good luck to all of the GB team at the WAGM!"

As well as the overall British Champion being crowned, the event also saw the British Senior, British Women and British Junior titles being fought out across the 2 day, nine round event. Sean Homer, third in the overall event, retained the Senior title (making it two wins in a row at the Championships) with Andy Exall 2nd and Tony Kelly 3rd. In the Women’s Championship, Brenda Smith won the title, with Marion Homer 2nd and Emily Gottfried 3rd. Adam won the Junior title with fellow GBR Youth team player Will Donnelly 2nd.

Other winners on the day were Paul Preston (category 4 champion), Adrian Amey (category 3 champion), Marc Chapman (category 2 champion) and Adam Kelly (category 1 champ). 4 aces champions were also crowned - Ed Haynes (cat 4), Brenda Smith (Cat 3), Mark Wood (cat 2) and Michael Smith (Cat 1)

BMGA Chairman Sean Homer said “We always have a tremendous event when we visit Strokes and this year’s event was no exception. The twists and turns in the final stages of the competition with our two best players on the tour going head to head proved to be a fitting climax to an excellent competition. Adam showed incredible strength of character with the pressure that Michael put him under and the victory was hugely deserved. I would like to thank all who played at the event, everyone who helped with the running of the competition over the 2 days and a special thanks to the course owners Brian, Frankie and Matt Wood for their hospitality, as always, over the weekend."
