2024 British Speedgolf Pairs Championship

Sunday 12th May 2024

at Sand Martins Golf Club

18 holes, simple foursome format

 

 

 

The 2024 British Speedgolf Pairs Championships event will return in Spring 2024 moving to  Sand Martins Golf club, Wokingham, Berkshire on Sunday 12th May 2024.

There is a limited field with very early morning tee times with play commencing at 7.00am. All players will need to register between 6.20 – 6.40 am. Speedgolf Pairs will be set off at intervals. Pairs will compete playing in a Foursome format – simple alternate shot, using a single ball. In addition, One player will tee off on odd number holes the other on even numbers. Each pair will be asked for a team name (nothing offensive please!) 

Event Registration is due to close – just one pair entry is left so secure this place now . The emphasis with Speedgolf Pairs is fun and inclusivity, so no prior speedgolf experience is necessary, nor elite golf performance. However, entrants should have attained a golf handicap (even if lapsed) and also be able to jog 18 holes comfortably in under 70 minutes.

As always we try to keep fees to a minimum which is a challenge with a small field, but for this event registration fees are just £90.00 (Per Pair)  which includes the 18 holes championship round plus breakfast.  We are not offering a prize purse for this fun event, trophies and bragging rights only! An inclusive ethos is central to our sports’ values and we hope you agree this provides outstanding value for such a unique event. 

 

The first nine holes present risk and reward set in parkland with lakes, water hazards and dog-leg holes! The back nine is unique among inland golf courses with deep bunkers and a real test of golf ability. For the inside track head to Sand Martins Virtual Caddy for hints and tips on each hole!

The last British Speedgolf Pairs Championships took place on Saturday 8 June 2019, at Sweetwoods Park Golf club, a parkland course bordering East Sussex, Kent and West Sussex.

Amateur golfer George Boxall and West Kent PGA Pro Tom Roberts narrowly defended their title; they finished their 18 hole round on this hilly course in just 49 minutes and 28 seconds shooting 82, giving the pair a Speedgolf Score of 131:28. Runners up were another Pro/Am partnership of Chris Benians and Steve Jeffs who shot 1 stroke more and were just 19 seconds slower, giving them a Speedgolf score of 133:17.

George Boxall and Tom Roberts won the Inaugural British Speedgolf Pairs Championship!

In very warm, humid conditions George and Tom completed their 18 holes in just over 41 minutes! Their Speedgolf score was 122:06. Not far behind was Chris and Jamie who took the best golf stroke score of the day shooting 79 in just shy of 48 minutes. The fast course played havoc with the short game but all who competed should feel very proud of their achievements. Runners up were Chris Benians and Jamie Fowler. It was a real fun event as the photo montage below illustrates!
