What were you doing on Saturday? Out playing 18 holes or hitting a few balls on the range? While you were doing that and I was cleaning the house, the 2009 World Minigolf Championships
were taking place in Odense, Denmark.The world of minigolf has come a long way since the very first course was built at St.Andrews in 1867. A purpose built minigolf course was built last week in Denmark in an indoor arena. Individual and teams events were held for both men and women over eight rounds which saw Sweden make a clean sweep of the tournament.
WMF Sports Director Gerhard Zimmermann says it best:
“The 10th Minigolf World Championships, which took place for the first time as an indoor event have been a full success on a very high sport level. The spectators could follow thrilling matches in an exciting atmosphere during the matchplay finals of the individual competition. The overwhelming winner is the Swedish Minigolf Federation, who won all four gold medals in team and individual competition.”
Exciting atmosphere, thrilling matches – can anyone really have topped that last Saturday? I can’t but my house is clean.
