World Crazy golf Championships Entry Opens

Hastings Adventure Golf are delighted to announce the details of the 2018 World Crazy Golf Championships. This year’s competition will be taking place over the weekend of 9th and 10th June. This is seen by many as the 'flagship' event in the Mini Golf calendar attracting players from across the UK and Europe, all competing for the biggest prize fund in mini golf. As well as the £1000 for the overall winner and an additional £2,000 prize fund for the top players overall, the 2018 event will once again ring fence an additional £1,500 exclusively for the novice players, with the best placed novice picking up £500 at the event. And if a novice wins the overall event, then they will also pick up the £1000 for the winner as well!!

The main event will be run over two days and a total of 7 rounds with the final adopting the 'crazy crazy' rules on Sunday afternoon. For the first time ever the novice event will run as a one day event over 4 rounds, players will be battling it out for the £1500 prize fund. This year the organisers are looking to ensure the 'fun' element lives on with various prizes up for grabs along the lines of 'best dressed', 'personality of the weekend', 'most improved player’. Further details will be released a month before.

Seasoned pro and twice runner up Sean Homer said "Hastings remains the spiritual home of all things minigolf related and the World Crazy Golf Championship has been at the forefront of the game in the UK for fifteen years. I made my debut in 2006 and got hooked on the game as a result and have played in every event since then. I think it’s fantastic that the event this year is again focussing on what has always made this event so special - a fun, exciting, inclusive and entertaining spectacle for the young, old and everyone in between. The key is to have fun and I'm delighted that 2018 sees the competition continuing to encourage new players in particular to give it a go. The bottom line is that If you love crazy golf and having fun on the greens, then this is without doubt the best competition of the year and one that you really shouldn't miss!! The prizes up for grab over the weekend are really the icing on the cake in what is a brilliant way to spend a weekend in Sunny Hastings. The team at Hastings Adventure Golf always give the players such a welcome over the weekend and their hospitality is second to none. An absolute must play event!"

Entry into the novice event is £25 * with the main event priced at £40.

Entry into either event could not be simpler, click here for details. Once signed up for the championships you will be entitled to practice rounds at 50% for yourself from the time of booking until the competition start date.

Great stuff Tony! The organiser gave me the heads-up that your entry was in - whoever that might be Wink

The first of the KMGC to sign up for this years event - but I know there will be more to come.

I think this years event is a real landmark event this season. It's a chance for minigolfing friends to come together for what has always been a weekend, for me anyway, that is genuinely more about the taking part, than anything else. Of course, everyone wants to do well - and the marvellous folk at the KMGC have got a pretty good record when it comes to the podium at the WCGC's.

But I can honestly say I've enjoyed the event wherever I've finished... it is more about the people than anything else.

Rules. Regulations. Trials and tribulations (blimey sounds like i'm going to break into song). All of these come and go... but it is the people that make the event special. From the team at the course, through to the new players who take to the greens for the first time, and our marvellous club mates.

The Saturday night meals at the Italian Way back in the day were always a great highlight of the weekend. Who can forget the multiple Tiger Meals as the poor chap often fell asleep mid meal (and let's not talk about the tipping or lack of!).

I am really looking forward to the weekend. Win or lose. It really doesn't matter to me. It's just great to be able to take part in something that has it's roots in the purest form of the game we all love to play.

This is all about enjoyment and fun. Nothing else matters. Be great to see some familiar faces. The KMGC will always be the greatest club in the country... often copied... but never bettered (or equalled!!).

Here's to a great weekend in June.

More to come no doubt Smile

The KMGC are gearing up for the World Crazy Golf Championships, taking place in just over 2 weeks time.



12 of the mightiest club in the land are currently in the mix for the event and fittingly for a club with such a pedigree and history, we are leading the way for club players entered, closely followed by the second most successful club in the land, the wonderful folk and our nearest and dearest rivals from Planet Hastings with 11.

Nice to see the new kids on the block, the Sussex Wasps, building up their numbers with 6 confirmed, the same as the (KMGC-lite) CEMGC crew from the badlands across the river.

71 players already confirmed and more to come - http://hastingsadventuregolf.com/crazychamps/2018WCGC/result.htm Smile

Wise words from two legendary club Captains (from Facebook earlier today):

John 'Big Top Ted' McIver (Planet Hastings) "A big turn out of Planet Hastings players for the 2018 World Crazy golf championships, it seems a long time since we had such a great group of gifted golfers. Hastings Adventure Golf have supported us for many, many years, and this year it is up to all of us in the club to help them put on a professional, enjoyable, friendly and above all fun event. At the end of a competition we all look ruefully back on how we played, but I don't want anyone looking back and thinking they didn't have fun ????,joy and hilarity. Wear your shirt with pride and remember to wear your smile too. Happy putting my dear old sausages."

Sean 'Freebird' Homer (KMGC) "Wise words from our friends down on the coast... Planet Hastings led the way back in the day and were always the club to beat. We have had many a fine tussle with the PH crew over the years and they were the target to beat when it came to the epic clashes at the Club Championships. We equalled, then bettered their achievements, but they will always be our nearest and dearest rivals and will always be respected by our band of minigolfers in the Garden of England. Ted hits the nail on the head with his post. All of us at the KMGC echo the sentiments and look forward to renewing old acquaintances on and off the course next weekend. PHCGC and KMGC account for over a quarter of the entries next weekend - a fitting tribute to a legendary competition at the spiritual home of crazy golf!!"

Given the success of the entries so far, we are looking to try and top the all time biggest field for the Crazies - 102 in 2005 - so the window has been extended to see if we can make this the biggest event ever. It’s already the biggest to be played solely on the Crazy course but it’s always nice to have a target Laughing Laughing

The players pack will be published and emailed to entrants shortly and the groups and tee off times for Day 1 will be published and circulated once the deadline for entries has passed.

So what are you waiting for? Last chance to be part of an epic weekend of crazy golf.
