Carl-Johan Ryner, 37, is widely regarded by experts as Sweden’s all-time best mini golf player. He will design MOS (Minigolf Open Standard) products for City Golf Europe.
The player from Uppsala has won an impressive array of gold medals in Swedish, European and World Championships, both individually and in a team. He plays masterfully on felt and eternit.
Carl-Johan recently played on City Golf Europe’s new Adventure Golf course at O'Leary’s restaurant in the Tolv Stockholm event centre underneath the Tele2 Arena.
The course has a Stockholm theme and an artificial grass surface.
“I liked the playing surface. It's slightly slower, more like classic golf. The course we played on isn't MOS classified. But it could be with a few adjustments”, he says.
“Adventure Golf is becoming increasingly popular. And competitive mini golf is increasingly being played on artificial grass. One example is the upcoming World Adventure Golf Championships at the Gullbergsbro mini golf club in Gothenburg in May. This trend is definitely something that can take mini golf to new heights”, says Carl-Johan.
City Golf Europe is the main sponsor of the upcoming World Adventure Golf Masters (Inofficial World Championships at MOS) at Gullbergsbro.
“For me, it's important that the holes are designed so that skill is the deciding factor. An artificial grass surface can give the game an extra element of excitement.” says Carl-Johan.
City Golf Europe in Örnsköldsvik, Sweden has been operating for almost 76 years and is Europe's leading developer and builder of mini golf and Adventure Golf products.
“We look forward to an exciting and rewarding collaboration with Carl-Johan”, says City Golf Europe’s CEO Peter Hoffman.
City Golf Europe is embarking on a project to develop MOS mini golf courses in collaboration with Carl-Johan Ryner. With Carl-Johan’s expertise, City Golf Europe can also adapt its existing Adventure Golf courses to the Minigolf Open Standard.
Carl-Johan is rooting for the Swedish contestants in the upcoming World Championships.
“Sweden's best MOS players are from Gothenburg. I hope they do well on their home turf.”
