This Is Hastings had the absolute pleasure of meeting Lavdim Zylfiu this weekend. This exceptionally nice chap was representing his homeland of Kosovo at the WMF World Adventure Golf Masters.
Before we could even introduce ourselves, Lavdim kindly presented us with a pair of lovely dye cast Kosovan flag badges, as well as a Kosovan exchange flag (like at the start of football matches), all we could offer in return was a thisishastings.com card …
Having competed in the competition last year, Lavdim chose to return to Hastings, rather than any other UK based tournament. Although last year’s weather was slightly more favourable, Lavdim remained very positive about our little seaside town – Hastings size and charms reminding him greatly of his hometown Priština (capital of Kosovo)
He told us that he had very much enjoyed visiting Hastings Castle, as well as the Blue Reef Aquarium.
Latvim will be competing in upcoming mini-golf tournaments in Istanbul and Portugal, and is also putting together a competition back in Kosovo – he showed This Is Hastings the brochure and map to a fantastic looking mini-golf course boasting miniature versions of the world’s most prestigious golfing holes.
This Is Hastings wishes Lavdim every success in his upcoming mini-golf competitions and look forward to seeing him back in Hastings for next year’s championship.
