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...

Report supplied by Norbert Wagenhofer

Last weekend was the first day of the 2012/2013 season in Austrian Bundesliga. The location for this competition was the minigolf course in Krems (Lower Austria). Although the course has been renewed a few years ago, the lanes itself are still the same since more than 40 years, and so the often unusual high slopes are a very interesting, difficult and characteristic detail of the minigolf course Krems.

Speaking of renewed things. This season is the 3rd one in a row where the playing system in Austria has been changed!

2 years ago the teams got points every round and at the end of the day the team with most points earned finally 12 points, followed by 10, 8....

Last year, the original system has been played: The team with the lowest score at the end of the day got the most points.

And now? Similar to the Swedish system, the teams have to play matches against each other. 2 points for a victory, 1 point for a draw and of course 0 points for losing a match.

As this causes more rounds than usual, the competition started on Saturday “high noon” (12 a.m.) instead of Sunday morning. The teams in the ladies category are Gänserndorf/Vöslau, Rot Gold, Linz Lissfeld and Igls. To secure that the ladies don´t have to less matches in overall, they play 2 matches against each other.

Finally it was the expected battle between Gänserndorf/Vöslau and Union Rot Gold. Both teams won their matches against Linz and Igls quite convincing, so all depended on the direct duel. The first “meeting” of the 2 clubs was an easy win for the reigning champion by a score of 86 to 103. Due to the big margin all seemed to be clear for Gänserndorf/Vöslau but the ladies from Union Rot Gold didn´t give up and secured with a 9398 result the important points. So both teams are equal at the moment with 10 points. Surprisingly on 3rd position is Igls after they won all the matches against Linz Lissfeld, which maybe missed former youth world champion Martina Danner too much.

Best individual player was Elisabeth Gruber with an average of 28,0 followed by Karin Heschl (29,6) and Bianca Utzig (31,1).

1. Bad Vöslau - Gänserndorf 10 546
2. BGC Union Rot Gold 10 560
3. MGC Innsbruck IGLS 4 625
4. ASKÖ 3D MSC Linz Lissfeld 0 622

The 6 men teams this year: W.A.T. 21, Steyr, Gänserndorf, BGC Wien, Bischofshofen and an ÖBGV youth team!

The big 3 of last year’s championship (W.A.T.21, Steyr and Gänserndorf) started with 2 easy wins before it came to the first showdown. In round 3 Steyr and Gänserndorf where the opponents and the young Steyr team won by 172181. After a victory in round 4 against the youth team, Steyr held the maximum with 8 points.

The same situation for W.A.T. 21: After beating Bischofshofen a very thrilling battle against Gänserndorf showed the reigning champion at the end as winner by 169172. So everything was prepared for the last and deciding match Steyr – W.A.T. 21!

Although it seemed to be a very tough match at the beginning, the players of the team of Upper Austria did a better job and saved the 5th win in 5 matches beating W.A.T. 21 by 174184. A deserved victory because of counting all strikes together the team of Steyr has also been the best one.

Behind these two teams the last round showed another exiting duel for the 3rd place between Gänserndorf and BGC Wien, both with 2 victories (BIHO, youth team) and 2 losses (Steyr, W.A.T.21). BGC Wien finally played their best round of this weekend (179) and Gänserndorf their worst one (182). A pity for Gänserndorf, playing 2nd best score in overall but only placed on 4.

So Steyr won this day followed by W.A.T. 21, BGC Wien, Gänserndorf and Bischofshofen which only reached 2 points by winning against the youth team. Although the young boys only finished on 6th and last place, they showed a good performance and can quite surely learn a lot for their further minigolf career.

Best individual players: Robert Halda (average 26,6), Gerd Nakowitsch (27,2), Philipp Albrechtsberger and Mario Dangl (27,8)

1. ASKÖ MSC Steyr 10 872
2. Wiener ASKÖ Team 8 894
3. BGC Wien 6 941
4. SV OMV Gänserndorf 4 890
5. ASKÖ MGC Bischofshofen 2 944
6. ÖBGV Jugendteam 0 1005
