Bischofshofen, Austria – The best youth minigolfers in the world return to Bischofshofen for the 2016 Youth World Championships - one of the main worldwide minigolf events of the year. The players got a preview of the courses during the U23 Nations Cup held in May and now they will start putting again on August 10. Nine countries will be represented by the 74 participants registered to play at both the concrete and miniaturegolf 18-hole courses. Participants must be 19 years old or younger to compete in this tournament. The Germans are sending one of the largest contingents as they look to repeat their domination in the Under 23 tournament where they had top honors in the male, female and team categories. Italy returns to the Youth World Championships for the first time since 2011 and look to have their name in the running.
