First up on Saturday 8th September was the Midlands Open tournament with 34 players competing.

The four-round competition was won by the reigning World Crazy Golf Champion, Michael Smith from Oxford. Smith, a member of the Kent Minigolf Club scored rounds of 18, 20, 19 and 21 for a total of 78 (-18) to win the title.

Another sudden-death play-off was required to decide the Aces Championship for most holes-in-one over the four-rounds. Cambridgeshire Minigolf Club Captain James Rutherford retained his Aces Champion title from the 2011 Midlands Open by defeating Planet Hastings Crazy Golf Club Captain John McIver after both players shot thirteen holes-in-one over the 48-holes.

The team of John McIver and Nick Chitty won the BMGA British Doubles Championships on Sunday 9th September winning all six of their matches on the road to the title.

When I saw the photos of the course I wondered how could one score an average like Michael did. It was only when I checked the result list that I saw there are only 12 lanes rounds.
Fantastic scores anyway! Congratulations Michael!
