Since 2010 the Luton Invitational Minigolf Tournament has been the traditional opening Miniature Golf event of the year on the 'Irregular Mini Golf Tour'. In 2010 the players faced-off in arctic cold weather conditions, while 2011 was played in heavy drizzle and last year's weather was mild, but drizzly.

The fifth staging of the event saw only two players compete as Simon 'Practice' Hall was otherwise engaged.
The animals at Woodside were in high spirits once again this year, with a couple of goats squaring off in a head-butt fight!
