The Georgian Minigolf Federation celebrates

The Georgian Minigolf Federation are celebrating double achievements this month

Following active engagement with schools and universities, The Federation held ‘The Tbilisi City Hall Cup’ on 06 November 2017.

5 top universities in Georgia competed at the event held in Tbilisi City Hall; the event was covered by mainstream media and City Hall Press Corp, as well as print media from the universities.

Following this event the Minister of Culture and Sports of Georgia issued an order on 01 February 2018 recognising minigolf as a separate sport from golf.

As a result of this fantastic recognition the Georgian Minigolf Federation has worked so hard to achieve; The World Minigolf Sport Federation are proud to announce the 2018 WMF grant of 6 portable lanes from Gold Sponsor Minigolf35 has been awarded to The Georgian Minigolf Federation.

This follows an invitation to the young and small national federations of the WMF to submit an application for the lanes, with each federation being invited to report how the lanes would be used to promote minigolf in their countries.

The award will enable further development of student sport and several locations are currently being sourced where the lanes can be used.

Besarion Tediashvili, President of The Georgian Minigolf Federation said “our federation had received great support from the WMF and I cannot find enough words to express our appreciation for the effort Dr Zimmermann and Secretary General Silke Bernardi put in to support the forming of the Georgian Minigolf Federation. This recognition and the awarding of the 6 lanes will a more active participation in all WMF events.”

Dear WMF Active Members, dear Athletes,

In Zaton we promised you the venue of the WC 2019 by the end of year 2017. We couldn't quite keep this promise, but we are now delighted and excited to be able to inform you that we have signed the contract for WC 2019 with the local organizer and China Minigolf Sport Federation (CMF). This means that the Minigolf World Championships will take place for the first time ever outside Europe in 2019. This is a consequent step in the development of WMF to make the game more global.

Obituary Leo Moik

We have received with great sadness the news that Leo Moik passed away last week at the age of 79. Leo was truly one of the most important figures in the development of international minigolf sport and a father figure for many athletes and officials over the years. 

Leo not only gave minigolf sport its' current status in Austria during his four decades as the president of the Austrian Minigolf Federation ÖBGV, but he was also one of the founding members of IBGV, which was later renamed WMF, the organisation we all belong to today. Leo Moik was Sport Director and Chairman of the Technical Committee of the WMF for 17 years from 1988 - 2005. 

Our thoughts are with Leo’s family and especially his wife Trude, who was always at Leo’s side, working for minigolf and loving it through all the years. Leo, as well as his work and passion for minigolf will never be forgotten in our hearts.
