I visited the new Splash point Mini Golf course in Worthing, England on the 3rd and 4th July 2010 as the course was host to the 2010 BMGA British Matchplay Championships. On the Saturday morning we had some fun rounds and a bit of practice, followed by the Splash Point Stroke Play competition – a warm-up event for the following day’s big tournament.
The course is set in a nice location, and is close to the beach, the pier and the town centre. It is a tricky 18-hole course that has some good obstacles and testing greens. The volcano hole (Dame Etna) is particularly daunting!
Splash Point Mini Golf was designed by two top BMGA Tour members – Anthony Pope and Peter Emmerson – and they’ve created a testing course, which will have you back returning for more minigolf fun. It’s been designed so it’s good to play whether you are a local, novice, holidaymaker or top minigolf pro, and I think they’ve achieved that.
It's a brilliant (and tough course), and well worth a visit. Anthony and Peter have put a lot of hard work into setting up the course and it's a real asset to Worthing. I'm sure if you pop by Anthony or Peter would be happy to give out some top tips. And if you're a local you could also join the Splash Point Mini Golf Club (SPMGC).
