On April 26th, the World Minigolf Sport Federation (WMF) Executive Committee announced that all remaining scheduled World and Continental minigolf events are canceled, due to the current Covid-19 situation. A primary reason for this is the uncertainty over international travel for 2020, which would limit the potential impact for many of these tournaments.
For the most part championships have been moved to 2021 as noted in their letter. A key change is that the World Championships will now move to even years versus the previous bi-annual odd year schedule. The World Adventure Golf Masters will still be held every year with 2021 being hosted in Kuopio, Finland and 2022 being held in Gumpoldskirchen, Austria, which was to hold the tournament in 2020.

As more information is known about other 2020 tournaments we will post updates. For now, we would consider our event listing stale until we hear otherwise from participating countries and courses.
Please stay safe and happy putting (either at home or when we all get back out to the courses)!
