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 Greater Baltimore Mini Golf Tour kicked off its Winter Tour on January 13, 2018 with an event at the Columbia, Maryland Monster Mini Golf. The tour will have four events, one each month through April, all played at one of two locations of the indoor, blacklight minigolf. Each event is one round long and a winner is declared both for the event and the overall tour. The first event saw 9 participants attempting to conquer the scary holes. At the end of the day, Elmer Lawson, a USPMGA pro, sat alone at the top of the leaderboard with a 42, clearing second place by ten strokes and earning him 51 points towards the overall title. Tournament director Rob Cataldi had this to say about the event, "[I] wasn't surprised to see Elmer at the top of the leaderboard. He's a very good player. Would like to...

We're going to start 2018 off right by taking a moment to look at more ways that miniature golf is helping many communities execute on the theme of helping others. You can visit Part 5 of this series to take a look at the last events we highlighted. In our first article we travel to Georgia, USA where the Lake Wildwood Neighborhood Watch held a Putt with Deputies event to help the community get closer to law enforcement, a theme similar to what we saw in a previous event in Virginia. While the article is short the picture is great, showing one of the local deputies putting with a flamingo as they had to play by special rules in the tournament. Keeping in Georgia and the theme of law enforcement, Savannah held an event to support their Crimestoppers reward fund. The linked article has...
