Nowadays, mini-golf is one of the popular sports on the world. Not very different like classic golf, the mini-golf is similar with adventure golf and crazy golf. The main difference is that competitions are played on special courses designed to reward skilful play. Tournament-approved minigolf courses feature challenging obstacles to negotiate, a smooth felt or concrete putting surface and a continuous raised perimeter border to allow calculated rebound shots. The beauty of minigolf is that anyone can play - though it takes dedication to rise to the top of the sport. Concentration and precision are the skills you need to perform.
In Romania, the minigolf was official recognized on April 7th, 2003, by the Minister of the Resort.
In 2004, the Nations Cup and the European MiniGolf Championship was hold in Timisoara, Romania, thanks to Club Sportiv Minigolf Riviera under the direct coordination of the World Minigolf Sport Federation (WMF).
