Due to travel restrictions, there will be no  International Players  Championship. The Players Championship will start at 2pm on Friday 24th September. Full details will be in the players information pack.

The course will be open on Friday 24th September until 10pm, weather permitting, and the same again on the Saturday after the first day’s play.

Hastings Adventure Golf are offering a £9 day rate for the week of the Open, Monday to Thursday. The Tournament entry fee covers the Friday practice day.

In addition, there will be the same food discount available at the food outlets as per the World Crazy Golf Championship. For that we are really appreciative. 

The tournament office will be adjacent to the pirate course as in previous years, and all player questions, feedback and scorecards, etc will be managed here.

We look forward to another enjoyable and successful event.

The players information pack will be sent out in the evening of the 22nd September.

Scott Lancley comments “Two years later than originally planned… We return to the great course that is Pirate Golf, at Hastings Adventure Golf.

This course offers plenty of Aces, and we are currently expecting one of the strongest fields of the year with almost all the GB’s current top 32 ranked players participating. We are also hoping to welcome some international participants from mainland Europe and across the Atlantic pond.

Home to the Planet Hastings Crazy GC, expect a strong attempt by them to win the BO Club shield currently held by defending champions Cambridgeshire & Essex MGC.

After a hugely successful World Crazy Golf Championship in Hastings, we are pleased to welcome a number of novice participants, good luck to you all!

The EC hopes that you all have a great weekend and are looking forward to the fierce competition. We’ll all be there to make sure it all runs smoothly.

As always, thanks to Simon and the rest of the staff at Hastings Adventure Golf  for their continued support of the British Minigolf Association national calendar.

Let’s go putting!…”
