Nin, Croatia - From September 20 to 23, 2017, the 2017 edition of the World Championships will be held at Zaton Holiday Resort. The World Championships is the most prestigious event on the World Minigolf Sport Federation (WMF) calendar and will crown the top players and teams in the world. It’s being held at the end of a packed month of competition at Zaton as the World Adventure Golf Masters and World Deaf Champions were held there last week. There are 23 countries represented in this year’s World Championships, with 166 total participants (53 women and 113 men). This year sees three new countries joining the entry list as Brazil, Australia and Canada have sent participants to this major event. An official list of the countries participating can be found below.

Participants had official practice days from September 15 up through today to hone their skills on the two courses that will be played during the championships. They will play rounds on both the felt golf and miniaturegolf style courses during the four days of competition. The first three days will feature stroke-play competition as players fight for individual stroke-play glory and the glory of their country and the awarding of team medals at the end of the second day. The final day will feature the best players in the world going head-to-head in match-play as the top 32 men and top 16 women from the stroke-play will faceoff for the individual medals.

The Tournament Director and WMF Sport Director Pasi Aho had this to say about the upcoming tournament, “In the team competition we can expect the closest team battle ever. Conditions are great. It is no-ones’ home course so it is neutral ground for everyone. I'm also excited about the new nations’ appearance."

The WMF will have extensive coverage of the competition this year via its official championship website and social media outlets. Pictures, results and videos will all be posted along with periodic live feeds on the Facebook site. Links to the various sites are provided below.

The World Minigolf Sport Federation (WMF) is the umbrella organization of 63 Minigolf sports associations worldwide with Continental Associations in Africa, America, Asia, Europe and Oceania. Over 1,000 championships courses are approved for official competitions and over 1,500 international minigolf tournaments are held each year. Millions of players all around the world like to play minigolf as a private leisure activity and in public competitions.
