|Youth World Championships 2010
awarded to Sochi, Russia
The WMF Executive Committee has
awarded the Youth World Championships 2010 to the Russian Golf Association. The
tournament is to be held in Sochi in August 2010 and will be played on the
systems Minigolf Open Standard (concrete lanes) and Miniaturegolf.
Aho, WMF Youth Officer, reported his very positive impression of the course and
facilities to the WMF Youth Committee and the WMF Technical Committee following
his recent visit to Sochi. This report has helped form the basis for the
recommendation of Sochi to the WMF Board.
The WMF feels that the Youth
World Championships is one of the most important championships taking place
over the next few years and Sochi, Russia is the perfect venue for the
competition. The Russian Golf Association is welcomed as a new organiser of a
large scale WMF Minigolf Championship.
