  • 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?

    • Same rules, same courses, but a new approach to golf since speedgolf adds the element of time as an additional performance factor. In a speedgolf tournament, your speedgolf score is your golf score added to the time it takes to complete your round. In tournament play, golfers play and are timed individually 
    • Speedgolf SoCal rounds are played by groups of 2-4 of similar speed and abilities, keep their own score and play with their group 
    • Players move as quickly as they are comfortable with between shots, use a limited set of clubs (4-6), and carry their own bag, which is usually a smaller, lightweight stand or carry bag. Bags are carried, not dragged, and never placed on the green surface
    • Etiquette and general golf rules are the same as golf, players are expected to care for the course (rake bunkers, fix ball marks), and be aware of other players in their group
    • Players are approved to wear athletic attire, comfortable running shoes. Rain gloves are recommended if you tend to sweat when working out/running
    • Speedgolf will improve your fitness, improve your golf game and allow you to play more golf (9 hole rounds average 30-45 minutes, and 18 hole rounds average 1-1.5 hours for speedgolfers)
