Upcoming Matterhorn International Pro-Am is part of world tour

Canton’s Jonah Hurley putts on the 16th hole at Matterhorn Mini Golf during a previous  Matterhorn Pro-Am tournament.

CANTON, Sept. 7, 2023  — Not only is September’s seventh annual Matterhorn International Pro-Am miniature golf tournament in Canton part of the American Mini Golf Alliance but the event is also the only North American stop on the new World Adventure Golf Tour, with 11 other events throughout Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

Golfers participating in the tournament will be able to participate in the American Mini-Golf Alliance’s point series and the World Minigolf Sport Federation’s rankings if they participate in at least three of 12 tournaments in the World Adventure Tour.

“I am thrilled to have Matterhorn both recognized and featured on an international level,” Matterhorn owner Autumn Sunderland said.

The seventh Matterhorn International Pro-Am will be Saturday, Sept. 16 in Canton. There will be three-round tournaments for professional and amateur golfers. The pros will share a cash purse of $1,250 with the winner taking home a tournament record $500.

Additional information about playing the Matterhorn International Pro-Am can found on the tournament website.

Amateur record, tournament: Caleb Smith 120 (2021)
