Grand opening of the first WMF-approved minigolf course in Turkey

To some was Friday 13th in March 2009 an especially lucky day. For instance to Mr. Erdogan Kök, the Turkish WMF registrar, because his Tuna Minigolf Sport Club's own minigolf course was officially opened in Bursa. The course was built and approved in December 2008, and alongside the miniaturegolf course there is a restaurant with 150 indoor seats as well as 250 outdoor seats for the summer season, which is in Turkey a bit longer than the one many of us minigolfers get to enjoy of.



The VIP among the roughly 150 guests was the mayor of the Bursa city district of Nilüfer, Mr. Mustafa Bozbey. Mr. Bozbey's input was decisive for the project and he received many warm, deserved thanks for his assistance and emphasis from Mr. Kök and his team. After the official opening the mayor and other guests got a chance to test not only the delicacies of the restaurant but also the lanes of this international minigolf course.

The invited guests and later other visitors showed great interest. Also several schools and other institutes have already shown interest in organizing events on the course. The media has visited the course actively, one TV station and approx. ten newspapers were also present at the opening. The club has set targets for finding as soon as possible players, who will participate in the international championships of WMF. We wish Mr. Kök and his team the best of luck with his course and club!
