Third Scrap Iron Cup Minigolf Competition

On Saturday 23rd January Richard Gottfried was unable to make it three Scrap Iron wins in a row as he lost the intra-team Scrap Iron Cup competition played between members of the Midlands Minigolf Club at Adventure Island Mini Golf course at Star City, Birmingham.

The eight player tournament used a two-round mixed strokeplay and matchplay format.

Richard won through to the final after a first qualifying round score of 21(-1) over the front 11 holes on the Lost Hut Trail course.

Birmingham youngster Owen ‘Jackpot’ Johnson was the other player to make the cut, scoring 22(par) and two shots ahead of Welsh ladies number one Cindy Kukielka who scored 24(+2) to finish in third place overall.

In the 7-hole Matchplay Match final round Owen won one-up, having led from the first hole until Richard was able to make the match all square at the 6th, only for Owen to score a two, to Richard’s three, on the final hole to seal his first big minigolf victory and return the prestigious Scrap Iron Cup to the Black Country.
