Our main goal was to provide a joyful week and unforgettable tournament to all the players, visitors and everyone coming to our course. Based on the feedback we’re getting, we think the goal’s been reached.
On behalf of the whole team, I’d like to thank all the players for the great positive vibes they were spreading around, their discipline, respect and kindness during the whole time being here. It was our great pleasure to cooperate with everyone involved."
When asked about the WAGM 2018, WMF Sport Director Pasi Aho said "The World Adventure Golf Masters 2018 was a great success. For the first time the event took place in Czech Republic and the organisation team have done a fantastic job to give us the best conditions."
The level of play was very high and the performance of the home team was the little extra to make this event unforgettable for Czech minigolf. We also got new countries to the medal winners' list with, for example, Slovakia taking their first ever medal on world level.
All in all I am very happy with the WAGM 2018 week.
