The World Minigolf Championship for the Deaf, which is being held for the first time in Croatia and in the world, and the World Adventure Golf Master Championship, which brought together competitors from five continents, officially opened with a solemn ceremony on Friday night.The competitive part of both championships starts on Monday, September 11 and will last for two days, and the Croatian national team is also fighting for the title of the best. “This is the seventh Adventure Golf Master in which the largest number of competitors from different countries participates and has gathered the best golfers in the world. It is a great pleasure for us to play on great pitches that are located in a great environment. ” said Mislav Bjazic, president of the Croatian Golf Association.In addition to the World Minigolf Championship for the Deaf and the Adventure Golf Master, the World Minigolf Championship is next week at the Zaton Holiday Resort (September 20-23). “The best golfers came to Zaton Holiday Resort and we are proud to have fulfilled the initial goal, which is the participation of competitors from five continents and to connect all people in this way. We are happy that the team from Ghana, despite the visa problems, finally managed to come and participate. ” said Gerhard Zimmerman, president of the World Minigolf Federation.However, the story has already begun to develop well through various extensions, but the important point and message is how it came about. It was created out of a desire for such important quality content.Mini golf today is more than 12 holes and concrete slabs, today mini golf is a real experience and attractionIt is sometimes difficult to describe the experiences in words, so for me at the moment, to describe what Zaton Adventure Golf looks like, I am attaching pictures. As I have personally been to these stories, I can confirm with certainty that playing mini golf with the family in this setting was a real experience and an unforgettable experience, especially the drawbridge ride with my son. Experiences are remembered, and I remember Zaton. When I see those old concrete mini golf courses in our destinations today, darkness falls on my eyes, not to mention that most of them have not been renovated for years. But mini golf from the eighties has evolved into a real small town of experience and fun.Zaton Adventure Golf has miniature replicas of cultural and historical monuments on each of the 18 holes, from amphorae, the remains of a Roman temple from Nin, the Kaštelina tower to all the churches of St. Nikola, and Zaton Adventure Golf is the first competition course with an official license in Croatia. “Continuous investment in raising the quality of the tourist offer of the settlement as well as in the creation of new facilities is a sure direction towards strengthening before and after the season. By investing in mini golf courses, we have opened the way to a new tourist segment. It is worth mentioning that the Germans, our most numerous guests, are the number one golf nation”Said Ivo Bobić, director of the settlement.At the beginning of the year, the Grand Prix championship in mini golf was organized, and the above-mentioned World Minigolf Championship for the Deaf is underway, as well as the World Adventure Golf Master Championship, which serve as additional values and certainly one of the good links for extending the tourist season and additional earnings. . I constantly emphasize, so to repeat the material, the motive for coming is not accommodation, but a diverse, high quality and authentic content of a tourist destination.With the construction of two new mini golf courses, Zaton has become a unique center of its kind in the world, the only location with 3 types of courses; Miniature, Adventure and Felt Golf, and Zaton Adventure Golf investment is worth about two million kuna.Also, what is especially exciting is that the entire Mini golf course is unique because it tells an authentic story about the destination through the positioning of tourist facilities / symbols. By playing mini golf you can get acquainted with authentic features such as Nin Cathedral, Old Croatian ship Condura Croatica, Glagolitic alphabet, Kaštelina Tower, ancient port of Nin, ancient crane, millstone, etc. ako and if you get acquainted with the story, then you want to experience it live .Experience, experience and only a quality experience is the only recipe for long-term success, and modern mini golf courses are certainly all that – great additional quality content and experience.
