Birdies Pop Up Golf - Launch Event for a New Minigolf Business in Manchester

Birdies Pop Up Golf - Launch Event for a New Minigolf Business in Manchester

On Monday 12th December 2011 Emily and I were invited to the launch night of a new Miniature Golf business based in Manchester.

Birdies Pop Up Golf has launched a new Portable Minigolf Business providing a modular portable Pop Up Golf course that is available for events.

The launch event saw Birdies Pop Up Golf's Mark Rooney and his team set up a challenging 9-hole Miniature Golf course at The Merchant Room, Albert's Shed in the Castlefields area of Manchester. Guests were invited to try out the course and compete in a fun minigolf competition.

The launch event also featured a friendly minigolf competition (with a fine trophy from The Trophy Store). In the Birdies Pop Up Golf Official Launch Night Competition I finished 2nd in the field of over 30 guests at the event. The winner had a score of 38(+2), while I shot a 39(+3). Emily scored a 43(+7) in the two round, 18-hole contest.

As well as the main contest we also had some friendly rounds and mini-minigolf competitions against fellow Minigolfers Jon Angel and Richard Linden of UrbanCrazy.

In the first contest Jon and I tied on scores of 20(+2) over 9-holes, with Emily hitting a 22. Our play-off saw Jon take the victory with  a hole-in-one at the third extra hole.

In the second contest I shot a 19(+1), Richard Linden hit an 18(par), while Jon scored 17(-1) to take the win.
