Happy Minigolf Tag 2013 (Minigolf Day)

National Day of Miniature Golf in Austria on Sunday 28th of April!

Minigolf Tag (Minigolf Day) is organised by the Austrian Minigolf Federation (Österreichischer Bahnengolf-Verband - OBGV) and 2013's Minigolf Tag is the fourth edition of the event.

Around 550,000 Austrians (some 15% of the country's population) play Minigolf each year and from 10am until 5pm on Sunday 28th of April 50 Minigolf courses in Austria will be celebrating the event with free games on offer, and tips and tricks on display from professional players.

For more information please visit the Minigolf Tag website.

In March 2010 I visited Austria and the Askoe Wien Wasserpark in Vienna where I was able to play one of the toughest (and longest) Swedish Felt Minigolf courses. It was the 163rd played on the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour.

I also got to see, but not play, the Eternit Miniature Golf at the sports club and I also saw the interesting Minigolf/Billiards variant game 'Pit Pat' (known in Austria as 'Hindernis Billards')!

There are also two other Miniature Golf Days. 'National Miniature Golf Day' is on Saturday 11th of May and 'Miniature Golf Day' always falls on the 21st of September each year. This year it's on a Saturday. Both of these days will see players from the British Minigolf Association in action as the BMGA British Championships at Wroxham Barns and the BMGA British Open at Strokes Adventure Golf will both be getting underway!

And don't forget, on Twitter every Monday is #MinigolfMonday!
