Minigolf competition

Over 150 students who have been well trained on various putting techniques were on full display last Saturday, November 18th, 2018, in Accra and Kumasi.

Each student will play individually, scores will be electronically computed into the GMF Scoring database. After collation, the lowest score average over the 5 weeks will have the chance to be selected in the top 54 for the finals on Saturday 22nd December 2018.   

The aim of the competition is to help promote Minigolf amongst students as part of the Federation’s objective to demystify the sport to become a household name in society.

Winners of the Unilever Minigolf Schools Competition stand a chance of competing in next year’s Minigolf Continental Youth Championship.

Supporting sponsors this year’s Unilever Minigolf Schools Competition are Melcom, Latex Foam, Interplast, Unilever and Azar Paint. 

The Unilever Schools Competition continues this Saturday, November 24th at Ridge Sports City Accra & Kumasi Technical University.
