2023 Putting Tour
2023's Putting Tour is the most ambitious yet - 8 double weekends spanning across Aotearoa for a total of 16 events, each consisting of up to 4 rounds of 18 holes, with the lowest total score taking out first place.
ALL SKILLS AND AGES ARE INVITED and whether you lead the pack or trail at the back, you'll be sure to enjoy yourself - we're excited to include the amateur and youth categories, first introduced in late 2022.
Amateur players compete in 2 rounds, whereas pro will be challenged to 4 rounds.
Ties for the event are resolved with "sudden death" - tied players play face-to-face to putt the lowest score on a hole until the person with the lowest stroke count is left.
If you're playing in more than one event, a NZMGF membership puts your name on the annual tour leader board. This is calculated on your best (most points) 9 events, allowing you to skip some of the events (because you know, minigolf for life, but life happens).
Points are distributed between players before any tie-breaks. Players sharing the same position take the average of the tied ranks - e.g. if two people finish 1st equal, each will receive half of 1st (50) and 2nd rank points (40) combined: 45 points (half of 50+40)
|Rank||1st||2nd||3rd||4th||5th||6th||7th||8th||9th||10th||11th - 15th||16th+|
- Tee-off within the marked areas. If unmarked, tee-off is at maximum, one club shaft length from the start of each hole
- The ball can be relocated 20cm away from walls and obstacles, as long as no advantage is gained (e.g. line of sight to the hole)
- If the ball leaves the green, return it to the point where it left and re-position using the rule above (no penalty shot awarded)
- Don't be a dick
Rules will be reiterated during the briefing before the start of play, along with any exceptions due to course conditions or otherwise. The complete New Zealand Minigolf Federation rules are available here.
