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...

There are no general guidelines, only guidelines for the intl. championships. For felt they say that the easiest nine lanes according to the statistics of the first two competition days (nowadays only best six teams per category count for this statistics) are chosen, whereas the jury can change some lanes for good reasons (bad lane, bad location regarding spectator areas).

In Södertälje the feedback was afterwards that there were too many easy ace lanes (with no target octagon), especially the money box being a lane where almost nobody made mistakes, and too few long, flat lanes.

As a consequence of this jury decided in Budapest with support of the team leaders' opinions and YNC statistics already before the tournament started that in case none of the long lanes (boxes and optical illusion) comes in by stats, one of them will be chosen by jury. This occurred and boxes came in. As well we decided that the completely lucky lane in Budapest, letter box will anyway be excluded (but I think it finally didn't make it through stats either). The mix of lanes was surely more successful in Budapest than in the Södertälje where the course actually offered chances for the good mix, but we were not experienced enough yet.

In both cases we had the advantage of having a really challenging miniaturegolf course, so the matches were not decided on felt only like many feared in advance.
