What is Speedgolf?
Speedgolf is the faster, more athletic version of golf, where you can play a full 18 holes in under 80 minutes, or 9 holes in under 40 minutes by jogging between shots. The challenge is balancing your running pace with your ability to quickly and accurately play your shots to get the lowest score possible. You don’t have to RUN!
The aim is to achieve the lowest possible sum of shots combined with the time taken to play your round. This combined total gives you a Speedgolf Score. Shooting a round of 90 in a time of 70 minutes and 21 seconds would give you a Speedgolf score of 160:21.
Speedgolf is new in the UK, but territories across the globe are emerging as interest in the sport gains momentum. British Speedgolf, along with other international Speedgolf communities, operates the same principal rules making it a fast but fun sport. Speedgolf is not all about Championships and records, it is about having FUN and this is core to our ethos. Whether you just want a faster, more athletic round, want to get fit or compete at the highest level.
Here is their website for anyone interested to take a look: http://britishspeedgolf.co.uk Please let us know if you are interested; if there is sufficient interest, we will organise an early morning tester of 3 (10 to 12) or 6 (13 to 18) holes before the players from the first have reached the 10th / 13th.
