One popular method of theming the 18th hole in the United States is to use a gated, ramped target area depicting the face of a clown ; if the ball lands "in" the clown's nose, a bell might sound and the player would win a discount ticket for another game. Nearly all European countries have an official national federation for promoting minigolf as a competition sport. The bi-annual European Championships attract competitors from more than twenty European countries. As of , Chris Beattie has been the holder of the European Championship title.
A national minigolf federation exists also in Moldova, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand, but none of these countries has ever participated in international competitions, and probably are not arranging many domestic competitions either. World Minigolfsport Federation represents some 40, registered competition players from 37 countries. Also Italy, Czech Republic and Netherlands have traditionally been able to send a strong team to international championships, even if they cannot count their licensed players in thousands.
The sceptre of competitive minigolf rests quite firmly in mainland Europe: no player from other countries such as UK, the United States, Japan et cetera has ever reached even the top 50 in World Championships in men's category. The United States has a longer history of minigolf competitions, but the standardized European competition courses are practically unknown in the United States, and therefore the American players have been unable to learn the secrets of European minigolf.
How to Make Every Putt: The Secret to Winning Golf's Game Within the Game
On the traditional American courses the best American players are able to challenge the European top players into a tough and exciting competition. The British Minigolf Association BMGA has an additional — and quite surprising — problem on their way to greater success in competitive minigolf. While the minigolf federations in mainland Europe receive annual funding from the government, in England the national sports organisation Sport England has refused to accept BMGA as its member — which means that BMGA is left without the public funding that other forms of sports enjoy.
The rules of Sport England declare that only one variant of each sport can be accepted as member — and minigolf is interpreted as a variant of golf. No person is known to be earning his living by competing in minigolf. Many course owners and employees naturally earn their living by working at minigolf courses, and some of the best minigolf players earn their living from minigolf-related work, such as giving putting lessons to golf players.
The highest money prizes are paid in the United States, where the winner of a major competition may earn up to 5, US dollars. In mainland Europe the money prizes are generally quite low, and in many cases honor is the only thing at stake in the competition. International championships usually award no money prizes at all.
How The Game Works
Now, a series of lush and inviting minigolf parks in prime locations are building around Israel and will be offering this need of adventure to the public at very attractive surrounding. Many of these competitions are arranged for three age groups: juniors under 20 years , adults no age limit , and seniors over 45 years. The difference in the playing skills of men and women is very small on top level, however: it is not unheard-of that the best player in a major international tournament is female.
Typically the winner in women's category would be very close to medals also in men's category. International competitions are typically arranged on two courses of 18 holes, of which one course is eternite, and the other course is usually concrete, less commonly felt. In the future, the WMF is expected to use also MOS courses in international championships — which will give American and British players a chance to show their skills on their own traditional course types.
