Coward doesn’t play Golf. Ice the contest.

“A coward does not play Golf” -this is how the familiar phrase can now sound in a new way. And all because to play Golf on ice under force only to those who are not afraid of a scorching icy wind and a meeting with the main rivals – polar bears.

Golf on ice is a relatively young phenomenon. The first Amateur championship in this unique sport was held in 1984 in Minnesota. To date, the game has thousands of fans around the world.

Since 1997, ice Golf Championships have been held annually in Greenland, on the island of Umanak, 560 km from the Arctic circle. As the fields were Greenland fjords-large ice fields, which drilled 36 holes (stroke-play) with the expectation of 2 days of play. Is white the ice was marked hardy red paint. The main obstacles for players were icebergs and snowy hills.

Traditionally, the umanak championship is held in March. Live athletes in Hotel Uummannag, and payment for hotel services is 1.5 million euros. The cost of participation in the Golf competition on the ice will be about 2 thousand euros. To complete the experience, you can ride in a dog sled, rent a snowboard and equipment.

In 2014, the oldest Amateur ice Golf festival will celebrate its 30th anniversary. The beginning of this tradition was laid back in 1984 by several enthusiastic golfers from Minnesota (USA), who, not waiting for the summer, decided to play Golf right on the ice-covered lake Minnetonka. So was born and is celebrated until now festival Wayzata Chilly Open.

For a certain time, the ice on the lake is a full Golf course. It is marked with paint and made at the rate of one day of the game 18 holes. Unlike Umanak, the rules are more democratic – as hockey sticks are used, and professional Golf balls prefer heavier tennis.

Wayzata Chilly Open is a popular event. Every year the festival gathers the majority of local Golf fans and tourists from all over the world. Comfortable place of residence at the time of the festival offers HotelIvy Minneapolis. Guests of the championship will be presented entertainment and themed parties.
