Austria Reigns at WAGM 2023

WAGM Team Podium

Gumpoldskirchen, Austria - The home field advantage continues to thrive as the 2023 World Adventure Golf Masters (WAGM) saw the Austrians rise to the top of several categories in the event, including team and the overall individual winner. However, it wasn’t a clear sweep for the red and white as several other countries battled to the top of individual categories this past weekend.

This year’s tournament teed off on June 16th and concluded on June 18th, having winners in national teams, individual overall, individual categories (youth, senior, etc) and mixed pairs. There were 104 total putters vying for the top spot from 11 countries.  It was a mix of club players and national teams so the 104 players ended up making national teams from 10 different countries, and of the total 22 were female-identifying players.

WMF Celebrates the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace

April 6th marks the United Nations International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (IDSDP), a day that presents us with a chance to recognize the positive role sport and physical activity play in people’s lives around the world.

From empowering women and girls, young people, persons with disabilities, and other marginalized groups to advancing health, sustainability, and education objectives, sport offers tremendous potential for advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and for promoting peace and human rights. The United Nations has long recognized the power and universality of sport, using it to unite individuals and groups through supporting sport for development efforts, participating in events from the global to the grassroots level, and developing its own sports-related campaigns and initiatives.”
