American Golf National Adventure Golf Championships on YouTube
Last season my team-mate Peter Jones and I qualified for the Grand Final of the American Golf National Adventure Golf Championships. The pairs event was contested at The Belfry Hotel & Resort in Sutton Coldfield, with the tournament broadcast on Sky Sports last November.

The programme is now available to watch on the American Golf YouTube Channel - the National Adventure Golf Championships can be seen from 26m 55s.

The Adventure Golf tournament was also included in the American Golf Championship Tour Season Review programme.

The 2017 American Golf Championship Tour saw more than 7,500 players compete in a total of 17 tournament categories at 168 venues in the hope of qualifying for one of the 252 grand final spots.

The Crazy Golf Museum
Back in 2010 I became a 'Curator' of the world's first Crazy Golf Museum. Along with Crazy Golf legend Tim 'Ace Man' Davies we pooled our resources to create the virtual museum, allowing people all over the world an insight to the wonderful world of minigolf.

Over the years we've seen some amazing minigolf 'stuff' and have collected a lot of it too. From postcards and stamps to badges and tokens, we've gathered together a whole host of items – we've even got some minigolf sugar lumps!

We love receiving items and information from players around the world as it allows us and others to see what's going on in places we may never get to visit in person. Seeing the colourful scorecards of courses in the USA or hearing about history being made with new competitions held in countries for the first time is marvellous.

Our friend and the Editor of Minigolfnews Pat....

Happy New Year
Happy 2018! I hope you have a brilliant year of minigolf.

It's been nice to read Pat's 2017 Year in Review posts here on Minigolfnews (check out the Front 9 and Back 9) and 2018 should be a cracking year for the sport.

To celebrate the first day of the new year Emily and I headed over to Southport, one of our local seasides, for the afternoon. While there we revisited what was originally the 150th course played on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour - The Masters Crazee Putting course at King's Gardens.

We've already heard about a lot of new courses planned to open this year too - the future of minigolf looks bright and very fun!

Don't forget to mark National Miniature Golf Day and Miniature Golf Day in....

A guest blog post about minigolf bloggers
To celebrate my eleventh year of blogging at the Ham and Egger Files I wanted to highlight the hard work and dedication of others involved in the promotion and support of minigolf through their blogging.

Some of the bloggers post regularly, others for specific events and others on a mixture of channels and platforms. Here's a list of the active blogs I know about:
- Adventures in Minigolfing by Marion Homer
- Mini Golf App
- Mini Golf Guide
- Minigolfnews.com
- Putterfingers

End of the minigolf season – and the year ahead...
Here in the UK another year in the domestic minigolf tournament season has come to an end, which means it is the perfect time to look back and reflect on the year. However, this should be about more than rankings and stats. No matter how high or low you are on the leader board or how many tournaments you took part in – if you enjoy participating in minigolf you have a story to tell.

There are plenty of opportunities to get your story out, this can be about your achievements and what you've got planned for the 2018 season too, but it can also just be about your participation, and your enjoyment of the sport, spreading the news and awareness of minigolf in general.

Minigolf is a game for all. There are a huge variety of stories to tell and positive aspects to highlight to potential players, the media, sponsors, as well as wider sport, recreation and leisure communities.

There are a lot of communications channels to use to reach your....
