Speedgolf is FAST, promotes FITNESS but most of all is FUN!
What is Speedgolf?
Speedgolf is essentially a faster more athletic format of golf. Speedgolfers who play competitively, do jog between shots but even those at the very top of the sport rarely sprint; Speedgolfers think about Pace rather than Speed – finding an optimum pace for their fitness and endurance whilst maintaining their golf shot accuracy.
A Speedgolf Score is a combination of Golf Strokes plus the Time to complete the round. Whether taking a brisk walk, power walk or progressing to a jog, some or all of the time, Speedgolfers should also aim to save time by eliminating practice swings and other time consuming rituals that lead many to over-think their game. In doing so, contrary to what one might expect, many Speedgolfers actually find that their golf game improves!
For a full round at ‘speed’ Speedgolfers need a clear course, which is the main reason that those who practice regularly play at 1st tee. Aside from fewer clubs and suitable attire there are very few rule changes and NOTHING a club has to put in place in terms of equipment.

STOP PRESS….. Players are just in the process of building a Community Face Book page called Speedgolf Virtual Café – it is for players and those interested to learn more about Speedgolf by the players. Why not join the group to connect with other likeminded individuals.
