WHAT IS SPEEDGOLF?
Speedgolf is a fun, fitness-oriented, fast-growing sport, which combines two popular but unrelated activities, golf & running. Golf no longer has to take 5+ hours or replace a fitness workout.
We're growing speedgolf in Southern California and always welcome new players to join us for upcoming events at local courses. All abilities welcome to play. Only requirements are you play golf (ideally <25 hdcp), are able to run/jog/walk briskly, and like to have fun
HOW IS SPEEDGOLF DIFFERENT FROM TRADITIONAL GOLF?
Speedgolf SoCal is a fun, membership-based club, open to all skill and fitness levels.
We are a collection of like-minded golfers, runners and fitness-enthusiasts who share the love of playing more golf, increasing fitness, and doing it all by 7am and getting on with the day.
Your golf game will improve and you will become more fit playing speedgolf
Membership is $50 for the 2021 season (April-October), and includes the following:
