Speedgolf is a fun, fast, and fitness-oriented alternative to traditional golf. It’s about one sport that unites two of the largest lifestyle communities in the world, Golf and Running! It also satisfies a myriad of today’s modern challenges to a healthy and active lifestyle.
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.
