British Speedgolf Pairs Championship Registration Open
Date: Sunday 22 July 2018 (Tee times from 7.oo AM – 9.00 AM)
Venue : West Kent Golf Club, Kent BR6 7LD
Team Pairs Event – 18 holes
This Inaugural Speedgolf Pairs event will be gender neutral. This event at the delightful West Kent Golf Club will embrace the essence of Speedgolf, 18 holes of Speedgolf, but back in time for breakfast!
Pairs will compete playing in a simple alternate shot format, using a single ball:
Player 1 tees off, and then each player takes alternate shots to finish the hole. Next, hole Player 2 tees off followed by alternate shots and so on. Tee offs will be rotated throughout the round, this ensures each will tee off on 9 holes but each player must run together, behind the ball for safety reasons. The exception is from the putting green where the player not playing the golf stroke may traverse to the next tee box, if they so choose.
Each player must carry at least one club, up to 7 each, it is a tactical decision as to how many clubs each player carries and whether to use a golf pencil bag or not; sharing clubs is permitted.
The field will be limited, so early registration is advised to secure your place. There is no prize purse at the event; Trophies, prizes and bragging rights are the order of the day!
Event Registration fee: £49.oo (per pair)
