2019 British Open Speedgolf Pairs Championships

Sweetwoods Park Golf Club

8 June 2019

 

 

The British Speedgolf Pairs Championships took place on Saturday 8 June, at the superb 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. All the volunteer scorers who play traditional golf at Sweetwoods Park found this pace and time totally unbelievable, as typically their rounds would be 4 -5 hours.
