National Miniature Golf Day 2021

National Miniature golf day UK 2021

One of the pleasures of being British is doing things a bit differently from the rest of the world. Miniature Golf Day is celebrated in the USA and everywhere else on the 21st of September. But National Miniature Golf Day happens on the second Saturday in May and is celebrated by minigolf geeks around the British Isles. This year it falls on the 8th of May. To thicken the plot, the second Saturday in May is also celebrated in the USA – but some sources call it National Miniature Golf Day and others call it Miniature Golf Day. Which is great, really. Because there are two opportunities a year to celebrate our fantastic sport!

The 8th of May this year is the day to head down to your nearest mini golf course, grab a putter and take on the challenge of negotiating your ball into the hole via various obstacles in the lowest number of shots you can. To find a course near you, Google ‘adventure golf’, ‘crazy golf’ or ‘mini golf’ in your area. There are all kinds of courses ranging from big, lush theme park-style adventure golf courses featuring pirates, dinosaurs and lost civilisations to smaller, more basic courses both at the seaside and inland.

Mini golf course
That looks tricky

But googling might not show you all the courses near you. The most complete list of mini-golf courses in the British Isles is without a doubt Richard Gottfried’s blog. He and his wife Emily have been playing every course they can find for years, on what they call the Crazy World Of Minigolf Tour. At the time of writing this, they have played a staggering 958 mini-golf courses, some of which are abroad but 919 of which have been in the British Isles. The blog chronicles their adventure by recording each visit. It stretches back years, so not all the courses they have played are still there, but many will be. Best to check it’s still there before heading off to a course you see on their blog! Check out their crazy adventure here.

May is also National Golf Month – meaning ‘big golf’, i.e. golf played over acres of land with a variety of clubs and questionable fashion sense. Putterfingers have just expanded their range of golf training aids for these hardy folk. For gifts for avid golfers or to improve your own game, check them out here.

Minigolf tournaments 2021
Putterfingers Managing Director Richard competing at the British Open in 2008

Minigolf tournaments can be nail-bitingly good to watch. When the leaders are separated by a single point going into the final few holes, it’s as dramatic a situation as the back nine at Augusta on the final day of The Masters. Players take the game extremely seriously, and have everything to play for in terms of the lasting glory of a tournament win. Cash prizes are far more modest than in ‘big golf’, but that’s not the point.

Top-level minigolf has its own traditions and folklore. In the USA they play at North Myrtle Beach every year for the right to wear the coveted green windbreaker – a nod to golf’s famous green jacket. And at the British Minigolf Masters, played just off the A20 Sidcup bypass, the winner gets a tweed jacket bought at a charity shop in Southend.

The minigolf world has a healthy level of self-mockery that is far more endearing than the millionaire tantrum-throwers of professional golf.

The skill levels are off the scale at the top of minigolf. Leading up to tournaments, practice regimes can be as intense as those of PGA players. The only difference is that when the tournament is over, Minigolf players generally have to go back to their day jobs.

Plan your 2020 Team Building activities

Taking time out from the daily grind occasionally is a necessity for employee wellbeing. Bringing your team together in a relaxed environment will give people the opportunity to socialise, away from their desks – a proven way to boost productivity.

So why not start the year as you mean to go on and plan in your 2020 team building activities.

Not all businesses can feasibly commit to the time, nor expense, of away days, so another solution is to host an activity within the workplace.

And what better activity to offer than a round of office mini-golf!

Mini golf is perfect for team building activities, it is fun, it is active and requires no prior ability.

Turn your breakout area into a fun crazy golf course

It’s winter, no one wants to venture out in the cold and wet. But getting a break away from the desk is essential for productivity.

Facebook HQ hired our Funsize crazy golf course for that very reason.

Facebook HQ 9 hole Course

The Fun Size Course was perfect for a room of this size. This is our standard 9-hole portable golf course.

The package consists of:
27 x 1msq astro grass tiles
Foam edge bumpers
Assorted obstacle pieces
9 rubber headed putters
9 low bounce balls
Scorecards, clipboards and pencils
Number cones 1-9

Short on space?

Our crazy golf course can be set up within the office. Putterfingers mini golf courses can be set up indoors or outdoors, and the modular nature of the courses means that they can fit around existing furniture and office layouts.

This is exactly what Worldpay did. They hired a 6-hole course to set up within their office space to celebrate the day that the company joined FIS. The organiser planned this activity in secret so it was a surprise for his employees when they arrived at work the next day. He even got to get some practice in the evening before while setting up. Unfair advantage perhaps?!

Team building across the miles

If your company has multiple offices, it can be tricky to bring employees together in a social setting when locations are miles apart.

One easy and cost-effective solution could be to hire a course for each location and compete via a live-feed scoreboard.

Zone Digital found this worked perfectly for connecting their Bristol and London employees.

Zone Digital Live Link Bristol Office Open

As we have multiple courses available to hire at any one time, there is no reason this idea couldn’t be scaled up and ran across several offices. Our golf courses can be delivered anywhere in the UK via courier, store away easily and fit in standard lift shafts – we would be hard-pushed to find a venue that cannot be accessed!

Branded courses

Our mini golf courses can be hired as they are, or branded with company logos and other insignia by prior arrangement with us. All courses are also available for purchase, either to create a more permanent fixture or to store and use when the occasion demands – the equipment is fully portable and easy to set up.
Branding the course to the company helps people to equate the company with fun, which boosts morale. Show employees some love, and they’re more likely to love you back. Some high-profile companies, such as Google and LinkedIn, have minigolf courses in their offices. So be like Google. Make your company one of the best to work for.

Buy a course to use for all your corporate events

Putterfingers mini golf courses are available to buy as well as hire. You could purchase a course to use for employee socials, for family-fun days and entertaining clients.

Orms-Golf-Open-Families-1

One or two holes can also be easily transported and set-up at trade shows – mini golf makes a great addition to exhibition stands as a fun and engaging activity for delegates.

Looking for multiple activities?

If you are planning on running a slightly larger team event and what to mix of activities, then talk to us about….

Table Tennis

Table tennis is great fun for corporate events, networking, office parties, conferencing and team building events.

We supply full-size, competition tables and personalised folding table tennis plus everything you need: balls, bats and nets.
You can have your own unique bespoke Compact Tables with the playing surface professionally printed with photos, logos, or any artwork you want to send us. Use block colours. Put a hashtag on them. The possibilities are endless.

Footpool

Footpool is a fusion between football and pool. The pockets are goals in this fusion between pool and football, and the added bonus is there is no offside rule! The rules of 8-ball pool apply: your opponent gets an extra shot if you foul and potting the black after potting all your balls wins the game.

Footpool is available to hire from a few hours to a full day and requires a set-up space of 25sqms.

Mini golf feud ends in ‘threat’, expulsion

Tantrums and putter threat on pro minigolf course!

This week’s post was to be part 2 of A Putted History of Minigolf – see part 1 here. But we have a story from New Zealand that we think trumps it and might generate some discussion, so we’ll push that post back to next week.

A recent series of events in New Zealand raises questions about minigolf as a professional sport and how seriously or otherwise it should be taken. A feud between two prominent Kiwi minigolfers escalated into one allegedly threatening the other with his putter, saying “I’ll wrap my putter round your head”. This was apparently the final straw for Minigolf Federation of New Zealand secretary Damo Kissick, who said it followed a string of incidents in which Bobby Hart lost his temper, threw putters, swore and generally spat out his dummy. In the light of this behaviour the player has been asked to leave the federation.

mini golf tantrum

Star national and international player Bobby Hart is known for his no-joking approach to the game and for saying things like “I’m here to compete, not make friends”. Which is kind of fair enough – he takes the game seriously and after all it requires great skill and practice. Interviewed after the incident, he said, “I’m not there to have a joke and a laugh, I’m there to take things seriously and grow competitive putting as a sport here in New Zealand. It’s not a joking matter … I think there’s a future for competitive putting and actually doing it as a job.”

The alleged putter threat came following a long-running disagreement with another player, Murray Cramp, whom Hart accuses of not taking the game seriously enough. Cramp said “It’s essentially a sport for children and their parents to have fun that we’ve turned into something that is well beyond [that] … The last thing you want to do is create a level of intensity where it looks like you’re at the Olympics.”

And yet there have been efforts to get minigolf into the Olympics. We blogged about it back in 2014. The World Minigolf Sport Federation regularly lobbies for it to be included.

All this begs the question: how seriously (or otherwise) should we take minigolf? Is professional minigolf a threat to the fun of the game, or should we have more of it? Can you be professional and have fun at the same time?

If you have any comments on this, please post them to our Twitter page. But try to keep your toys in the pram.

Here’s the report from Stuff.co.nz where we heard about the Hart/Cramp confrontation.

 

Putt-Putt turns 64 and is still popular

Much-loved American putting game Putt-Putt turned 64 last week and is still going strong, which shows that the U.S. putting population’s answer to the question “Will you still need me, will you still feed me when I’m sixty-four?” is a resounding “Yes!”

Some British readers might not be familiar with Putt-Putt, but rest assured it’s miniature golf, just a specific version of it that was commercialised and popularised in the USA in the 1950s. Here’s a bit of its history and one notable occurrence.

Putt-Putt course 1954

When the first Putt-Putt® course opened in Fayetteville, North Carolina in 1954, the Putt-Putt mission statement was simple and honest: “To provide families with a safe, clean, wholesome entertainment venue where they can have an enjoyable experience for a reasonable cost in their own community.” A game cost 25 cents and the courses were standardised to give as equal a challenge as possible from one course to another. Doing away with windmills, fountains and other paraphernalia, they consisted of simple geometric shapes and standardised carpet and rails to give even roll and predictable bounce. The holes are designed so that a hole in one is always possible. So it’s a game of pure putting skill and judgement.

A franchise business right from the start, Putt-Putt courses spread quickly and became a household name in family entertainment. It is still possible to apply to become a Putt-Putt franchisee! Soon the brand had its own league, the Professional Putters Association (PPA) which still exists today and offers relatively substantial prize money.

Here’s a video we’ve shared before which not only shows what Putt-Putt holes look like, but also one of the very few occasions on which a player has hit 18 consecutive aces – the perfect game (see original post here). It’s a superbly made animated video that documents the most exciting moment in the putting career of an IT manager called Rick Baird.

World Crazy Golf Championships crowns new king

At the weekend Hastings hosted the 16th World Crazy Golf Championships. Taking place at Hastings Adventure Golf, the annual event saw the biggest turnout of competitors since 2005. The winner was Marc Chapman, a fencing coach from Canterbury on his 9th attempt at the title.

Marc Chapman won the World Championships by 1 stroke in a closely fought competition

After claiming the trophy a visibly chuffed Chapman said, “It feels amazing to finally become the World Crazy Golf Champion! It’s been a great personal ambition of mine to win this event and I have been close to it a few times before. I’ve only played in a few events in the last five years, which makes this win even more amazing to believe!”

He has every right to celebrate, having beaten a host of top pro minigolfers including 4-time champion Michael Smith, star putter Adam Kelly and many other illustrious names. Chapman chalked up an impressive 26 under par 226 over the seven rounds, with Kelly rolling in second just one shot behind and Smith taking third having dropped just a single shot from Kelly.

The Novice category was won by Russell Smith from Tunbridge Wells on 10 under par over four rounds, with Chris Horn and Mark Berezicki in second and third places respectively.

Seasoned pro and twice runner-up Sean Homer said: “I made my debut in 2006 and got hooked on the game. I’ve played in every competition since. It’s fantastic that the Hastings’ event is still focused on what has always made it so special – a fun, exciting, inclusive and entertaining spectacle for the young, old and everyone in between.”

Here’s some video of the event, with players explaining the challenges of the Arnold Palmer course and plenty of match play footage, seagulls, good weather and tricky shots. From 10:35 you will hear a series of delighted cries of “Yes! Come on!” from Chapman as he edges closer to the title.

Some thoughts on disabled minigolf

Word of the week: Shlubs

On The 18th and 19th of May the US Prominigolf Association’s U.S. Open Championship was held in Hendersonville, North Carolina. One professional player stood out in particular, a man by the name of Niko Manou. What is different about him is that he does not use a putter. Niko has a debilitating condition that causes his wrists to dislocate very easily and without warning, which is painful and makes using a putter almost impossible. Refusing to be ‘disabled’, he has overcome this by designing special attachments to his shoes that present a putter-like face to the ball – and he putts with his feet.

disabled minigolf platyer invents shlubs
Shlubs

He calls them shlubs, a portmanteau of shoes and clubs. And they are not just for himself – he makes them for other minigolfers and sells them. Here’s the shlubs Facebook page. Niko also plays big golf with shlubs and can drive a ball quite a way. He calls this sport shloffing.

Other pro players accept Niko and respect him for his resilience and creativity, and for the simple fact that he is a nice guy. Here’s a video of Niko talking about shlubs, shloffing and what makes him happy.

The sporting world is full of examples of people who play despite apparently overwhelming odds. Though his case is completely different, Niko reminds us of another disabled American by the name of Matt Stutzman, who has risen to the top of the sport of archery despite one tiny problem – he was born without arms. Want to see how he overcomes that one? Here’s a video about Matt, the amazing Armless Archer, who shoots as well as his able-bodied peers.

While we’re on the subject, it might be worth mentioning that Putterfingers minigolf courses are wheelchair-friendly. Because the putting surface is so low, wheelchair access is easy, and people using wheelchairs can enjoy a game if they are otherwise able-bodied. The only obstacles on Putterfingers courses are the ones they have to get the ball over!

Disabled minigolf wheelchair access
Wheelchair users can just roll up to the tee, and onto the course as well

There are special putters out there for wheelchair minigolfers. The shaft hinges just before the head to enable a good putting angle from a seated position. Unfortunately we are unable to source them at the moment, but we’re trying to get a supply line to help make our courses even more inclusive.

Professional minigolf – yup, it’s a thing

Professional minigolf – looks easy? Try it!

Professional minigolf putt-putt crazy golf
Measure twice, putt once

As you pootle around your local adventure golf course surrounded by animatronic dinosaurs, sinking a hole in one is usually a happy accident rather than an all-consuming goal. Crazy golf is fun, right? A social pastime for family days out, dating and business teambuilding days. We seldom spare a thought for those whose entire lives have been consumed by the plasticky rattle of the ball falling into the cup after a single stroke of the putter. Yet these fevered souls are out there in growing numbers, and the best of them are making money at it. Meet the professional minigolfer.

Pro players will take a couple of days before a tournament to scope out the course, take detailed notes on each hole and plan their shots. The planning is as meticulous as for other pro sports, including ‘big golf’. Prize money is an mini as the game itself, but the glory has no price. When professional minigolfer Matt McCaslin won the 2014 USPMGA Open he walked away with $4,000, and the prize purse for the 2018 Masters is $20,000, so it’s not exactly to be sneezed at. But you’ve got to be really, really good to get in the money.

How do you get that good? You turn pro and practice, practice, practice. Pros spend 8 to 12 hours a day getting the feel right, watching how the ball breaks, deciding on shot strategy, preparing for tournaments.

Pro minigolf, pro putt-putt, professional miniature golf
Players duke it out at a pro tournament in the USA

So pro minigolf is predictably dominated by middle-aged men, right? Well, a lot of the USPMGA‘s top-ranked players come from the world of Putt-Putt and are male and, yes, quite a few are middle-aged. But one good thing about the sport is that it’s open to all ages and genders. In 2013 Olivia Propokova, a Czech 18-year-old, won the triple crown: the Master’s, the U.S. Open and the World Championships. But then she is a bit special, a real fighter and lionized by her fellow pros. She’s also a heroine back in her home country and has landed sponsorship deals and has her own line of clothing.

“I don’t think any us at this level think of it as a hobby – we take it really seriously as a professional sport,” says Brad Lebo, a 55-year-old Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, dentist who’s earned about $145,000 putting professionally since 1991. “We like to think we’re the best at what we’re doing in the world. Unfortunately, we’re just in kind of a niche.” [pga.com]

Here’s a video featuring Matt Male, a minigolf professional who won the 2015 Masters, talking about preparation and the pro minigolfing life. The uncharitable comments on the YouTube video show how far minigolf has to go to be taken seriously as a professional sport by the general public. It probably never will. But there is no doubting the seriousness and commitment if the players themselves. They’re hooked, far beyond help, and they probably feel pity for the ignorant YouTube commenters who have never felt the thrill of a really cracking minigolf score. Haters gonna hate, putters gonna putt.

Minigolf at the Belfry featured on Sky Sports!

Sky Sports airs gripping adventure golf champs played at the Belfry

sky sports minigolf
A screen grab from Tuesday evening’s coverage of the American Golf Finals on Sky Sports

Our regular readers might recognise the face in the photo above. Yes, it’s our friend Richard Gottfried, putting supremo and the man behind the long-lived crazy golf blog The Ham and Egger Files. He has putted his way round over 700 minigolf courses in the British Isles and documented every one in his Crazy World of Minigolf Tour. He is no stranger to the media, but what is unusual in image above is that it is minigolf on the TELLY! Sky Sports, to be exact. Our favourite sports has hit prime time subscription TV!

Golf equipment supplier American Golf sponsors a series of golf tournaments in the UK which have grown in popularity. This year they have managed to secure slots on prime time Sky Sports TV for their competitions. Alongside the ‘big’ golf’ events like the Junior Championship and the 9 Hole Pairs, this year saw the inaugural Adventure Golf Pairs Championship aired on Sky Sports. Richard Gottfried, pictured above and below, chose Peter Jones as his teammate for this event. The grand final of the tournament was held on the Ryder Legends Mini Golf Course at The Belfry – not to shabby a venue! Each hole represents a famous hole from big golf, and includes some very long holes with a high difficulty level.

adventure golf, minigolf championships

We are thrilled that our favourite sport has had this airing on a leading sports channel, alongside big golf and on an equal footing with it. We’ve always known that minigolf is just as challenging and exciting as big golf, but now the sports-viewing public has had a front row view of top minigolf players in action, and seen how seriously they take it.

So big respect to American Golf for adding minigolf to their tournament series!

Simon Lee, who won the adventure golf final with partner Steve Gerrish, said, “It’s a great way to get people who don’t play golf into the sport. They can come along and have a bit of fun. It was brilliant to see everyone come out today. If there was more stuff like this around I think you’d have more young kids getting into golf.”

Of course minigolf is more than a gateway into big golf – it’s a mature and highly competitive sport in itself. But if it helps send more nippers on their way to giving Rory McIlroy a run for his money, we’re happy about that too!
