The tournament was won by Oxford’s Michael Smith who defeated Hove’s Peter Emmerson in a sudden-death play-off after both players had scored totals of 100.
Richard said “I always enjoy visiting Worthing and Splash Point Mini Golf, even though it’s an incredibly tough course. After the terrible start to my second round I was pleased to shoot par on my final round.”
Emily said “Splash Point Mini Golf is a great course to play, with some very ace-able holes, but some which can be killers. I managed to go from one extreme to another, with a lot of holes-in-one, but some really bad hole scores as well. I let myself down on the final round but was happy with my first two rounds.”
