Happy Minigolf Tag 2014!

Today is Austria's National Minigolf Day!

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

Every year around 550,000 Austrians (some 15% of the country's population) play Minigolf and today is a celebration of the great game.

Back in March 2010 I visited the Askoe Wien Wasserpark in Vienna, Austria where I played one of the toughest (and longest) Swedish Felt Minigolf courses in Europe. It was the 163rd Miniature Golf course played on the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour. It was also the first place I spotted a Pit-Pat course (a cross between Billiards and Minigolf!).

There are two more 'Minigolf Days' coming up in 2014, with National Miniature Golf Day on Saturday 10th of May, and Miniature Golf Day on Sunday 21st of September.

And don't forget - on Twitter every Monday there's #MinigolfMonday!
