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.

The topic of the educational miniature golf has been hot in the social media world. In our last installment (Part 4) we covered 3D courses, art and education and one class that combined a ton of disciplines into one learning objective. The articles we've select below also cover such varied topics and continue to provide excellent ideas of how our sport can be integrated into a curriculum at all levels. Thank you goes out to all of the other news organizations who are taking the time to cover these events so that they get the proper recognition they deserve. Our first article brings the minigolf experience down to the kindergarten level and comes from New York, USA. The kids built Haldane’s Putt N’ Play over a six week time period, putting together some of the basic lessons they were learning around force with the fun of...

Stability of leadership in an organization helps to ensure that the organization is steering towards the right goal. Over the past 11 years, the British Mini Golf Association (BMGA) had such stability as Sean Homer guided the group as the Chairman. Recently Sean stepped down from this position and Paul Preston took the role. Sean currently works as a Retail Operations Manager for Royal Trinity Hospice in London and was previously involved with the Virgin Group as well as managing services across Kent for Adults with Autism. He’s always had a passion for music and film, and his a keen motorcyclist. He’s married (to WMF’s Media Manager Marion Homer), lives in Kent and is a lifelong Wolverhampton Wanderers fan given where he was born and raised. We had a chance recently to catch up with him via email to look back on his time as...
