As a marketing professional I use my extensive knowledge and skills in supporting and promoting the game I enjoy as a hobby.
Since 2006 I have visited more than 900 minigolf courses in the UK and overseas. This has given me an insight into many aspects of minigolf including course operators, pop-ups, competitions, equipment, national associations, international federations, clubs, suppliers, designers, builders and technology providers.
My involvement in the world of minigolf includes blogging, media relations, sponsorship, course design, advice and consultancy, event organisation and promotion, and participation in tournaments around the world.
I have consulted on a number of minigolf business concepts in the UK and USA including Princess Parade Crazy Golf in Blackpool, Tea Green Golf in Luton, Burray Crazy Golf in Orkney, Prestwick Putting and Crazy Golf, Portaputt Crazy Golf, Southend Pier Crazy Golf, Knaresborough Mini Golf, Glory Holes art-based Crazy Golf in Saltaire, Putting at the Kiosk in Bedford and Visionary Crazy Golf at the London Design Festival.
As a volunteer I served three terms on the Executive Committee of the British Minigolf Association and was a member of the World Minigolf Sport Federation’s Marketing and Media Committee for six years.
My sports, games and travel blog at the Ham & Egger Files contains over 3,700 posts that have attracted 1.6 million page views. Read my posts about the next normal rules of minigolf, competitive isolation and social distancing, the boom in minigolf and competitive socialising, artainment, the concept of retailtainment, as well as the increase in shopping mall and garden centre miniature golf courses.
