There are about 300 recesses on one golf ball, and thanks to them, the ball flies three times farther than a smooth one. ... Balls of the same size...

The 2010 Castle Golf World Crazy Golf Championships took place at the Hastings Seafront Adventure Golf Complex in Hastings, East Sussex on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st October.

The overall winner was Birmingham’s Chris Harding, who won the title for the second time, having previously won the title in 2007. Brighton’s Peter Emmerson was runner-up, with Oxford’s Michael Smith in third place. Harding won with a seven round total of 222 (-30), after rounds of 31, 34, 31, 29, 32, 29 and 36 - an average of 31,7 shots per round. Defending champion Keith Kellard finished in 8th place.

Players from all over the world were invited to compete in the Castle Golf World Crazy Golf Championships which had a prize fund of £3000. 54 competitors played six qualifying rounds (four on Saturday, two on Sunday) on the 18-hole Hastings Crazy Golf course, with the top ranked 18 players making the cut to take part in the final round, played using unique Crazy Crazy Golf Rules. Chris Harding took the World Crazy Golf Championship title, prestigious trophy and £1000 in prize money. Among the nations represented in the event were players from England, Wales, Scotland, Sealand, Finland, the Czech Republic, and Australia.

Other winners at the tournament were England’s Ruth Bullin, who became the Women’s World Crazy Golf Champion, with the Czech Republic’s Olivia Prokopova in second place and Welsh Ladies Number One Cindy Kukielka third. Birmingham’s Owen Johnson won the award for Top Tournament Personality.

Well done Chris, I voted for you in the poll!!!
If only Ladbrokes had had crazier bets, I'd be a rich man. As I recall, I predicted your win also in the Scottish Open!

I would have wanted to concider voting for Michael Smith too, but he wasn't on the list. Who ever made that list? reveal yourself! :)

These two, definately the best players of the season, rarely went head-to-head this year, so I was curious to see the outcome.

Other great names of the season also at the very top!

Take it easy guys. :-) I love being too social, even if it costs me an occasional victory! I myself felt my bad shots rather cost me the victory, if there was any up for grabs. The said occasion of wrongly used praccy time, which would probably be the one fun-round on the adventuregolf course after eight and half hours practice (8,5 in figures that is, minus lunch break) on Friday on the crazy course, I just felt another hour wouldn't bring much, rather relax a bit. On the other hand I also spent two hours playing air hockey after Saturday's play which I could have used for practising additionally to the 45 mins I did, so maybe I was really focusing on wrong things...who knows.

Keep on analyzing and bear in mind that Chris Harding lost a couple of shots because of being blocked or crocked on the crazy crazy final round, so effectively his score could have been sub 31,5. Welcome to try to beat that, it may require more than odd another hours practice in the evening. Well done Chris, you are a true gentleman and a great sportsman. Well done to Pete, Michael, Marc and all the other prize winners too. Plus all of you who were there and played in the sportsmanlike spirit!

Using one course only is not actually a _reason_ to limit the participants to maximum 54 players, because rolling start would allow more participants than fit on the course at the same time. Neither is it a _reason_ to reserve nearly all places to BMGA members, blocking foreign players from participating in what is called World Championships. I will never criticize you for blocking foreign players from participating in local BMGA events, but if you do so in a tournament that you label as World Championships, you must expect some criticism to follow.

Pasi never wins in Hastings because he is too social. A tip: throw away your practice time by accepting friendly matches on the other course that is not used in the competition...

Firstly congratulations to Chris Harding for a unbelievable performace over the two days. Commiserations to Peter E who almost produced the ultimate eight shot swing to nab the title off Chris in the final round..Crazy crazy golf!

John with all respect,
this isn't the first forum you've used to be-moan this years entry places to this tournament!
You've failed to mention the reason why only 54 places were available and not the usual 70+ (The tournament could only use one course due to the other being demolished. Therefore a resriction on participation numbers.)
We'd love to see you back next year John IF................
1) Your not busy like you were this year, in which you declined your rightful instant place due to your finishing position last year.
&
2) If your as talk-a-tive in and around the tournament as you are on this and other forums.... Ask Pasi Aho about how to be more approachable and social like he is!

The WCGC trophy still stays in Britain, as always before.

The article distorts the truth a bit, when it claims that "players from all over the world were invited to compete". That is not true, this year the organizers decided to allow 54 players only, including 3 personally invited foreign players (of which Olivia and Pasi accepted the invitation), and the remaining 51 (52) places were reserved to BMGA members only. So it was an invitational / BMGA members tournament this year. Maybe the tournament will be open to players from other countries again next year, we will see.
