Minigolf Tournaments Calendar 2021

Minigolf tournaments 2021

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.

2016 Minigolf Tournaments Calendar

Below you’ll find details of minigolf tournaments around England and Wales along with links to the wonderful venues hosting each one. Why not pop along to one and have a go? Or do a golfathon for charity, playing at some or all of them? The closing date for the English Open is the 26th of February so hurry up if you fancy trying your hand at it. There will be some very serious players there, some of whom are BMGA Tour Pros, so you probably won’t win it! But there’s nothing wrong with having a go. You can pay cash on the day (£25 for a non-BMGA Tour Pro) but they do need your application form to book you a place.

From the beaches of Hastings to the Norfolk Broads via the Midlands and Cardiff, this island is buzzing with minigolf action in 2016. See below for full details.

Here’s a throwback to 2008 when Team Putterfingers went down to Brighton to play in the British Open.
