The Open Asian Minigolf Championships were held in Yokohama, Japan during the weekend of October 8 through 10. The event had two categories of competition – one for those who are AMF members (the Asian Championships) and one for anyone who is a member of the World Minigolf Sport Federation (WMF) (the Open Asian Championships). Within each of those categories titles were awarded for individual play and team play.
In total, 56 competitors took to the lanes in Yokohama from 8 countries including China, Chinese Taipei, Finland, Germany, India, Japan, Sweden and Vietnam. Members from Korea and Iran were in attendance for the Delegate Conference that preceded the tournament but did not compete. Rain and wind hit the first day of competition but players and officials toughed it out and 8 rounds for the individual categories were played.
