Margate's Scott Lancley won the Great Northern Minigolf Open played at Wigan's Haigh Woodland Park on Saturday 8th April. Played over two rounds on the park's two 18-hole courses, Lancley won with a 36 hole score of 87. Stockport's Richard Gottfried was runner-up on 93, with Ramsbottom's Russ Dent finishing in third place on 95. A total of nine players took part in the first staging of the event.

Russ Dent was making a return to competitive minigolf after a seven-year break and rolled back the years with an impressive round of 44 on the Adventure Golf course to lead by five shots after round one. Gottfried and Lancley were in a tie for second place after round one.

However, Lancley's visit to Greater Manchester wasn't for nothing as he stormed to an amazing round of 38 on the Crazy Golf course to take the title and the trophy.

Speaking after his victory Scott said "I'm humbled to have won the first Great Northern Minigolf Open and put my win down to my vast experience of the second course we played today."

Results of the 2017 Great Northern Minigolf Open:
1st - Scott Lancley - 49+38=87
2nd - Richard Gottfried - 49+44=93
3rd - Russ Dent - 44+51=95
4th - Emily Gottfried - 52+49=101
5th - John Moore - 54+50=104
6th - Cat Patterson - 65+59=124
7th - Ryan Lancley - 65 DNF
8th - Ethan Rottenbury - 67 DNF
9th - Zoe Lancley - 83 DNF

Players had traveled from Kent, other parts of Greater Manchester, Bedfordshire and Tyneside to compete in the tournament.

The Aces championship for most holes-in-one was a very close contest. The first course had proven incredibly tough and no players had recorded an ace during the 18-holes. John Moore was first to score an ace in the event, doing so on hole 1 of the Crazy Golf course. Richard Gottfried followed this with a hole-in-one on the second. There was another drought until Russ Dent hit a perfect shot on the 14th hole. Emily Gottfried hit an ace on the 18th. However, it was to be Scott Lancley taking the Aces title to go alongside the main event as he hit aces on the 16th and 18th holes to do the double.

Thank you to Richard Gottfried for providing this article and pictures.
