The Championships take place on June 11 and 12 at Hastings Adventure Golf, on the seafront, and uniquely attracts complete novices and top international players.

Players will be competing for a slice of the £4,500 prize fund - the biggest ever in the competition’s history.

For a shot at the title competitors must beat the windmill and watermill as well as negotiate the bends, twists and ramps on the traditional seaside course - dubbed the ‘spiritual home of crazy golf’ by the British Minigolf Association.

Simon Tompkins, of Hastings AdventureGolf, said: “The World Crazy Golf Championships are a real highlight in Hastings. Of course there’s fierce competition but it is also a lot of fun – and great for spectators too.”

Michael Smith, GB, was crowned 2015 champion with an incredible 31 under par, while the youngest player in last year’s competition was Jessica Pilgrim, aged 10.

There are four rounds on Saturday and a further two rounds on Sunday for all players. The final round on Sunday will be contested amongst the top 18 players.
