Welcome to the home of speedgolf in Southern California


    Our 2024 season has started and our players will be now playing at 5 courses around

    SoCal every week through September


    We have clubs in Los Angeles, Orange County, Temecula and now San Diego.

    Each Speedgolf SoCal club is open to new members for the season. All are invited to play, but you do need

    a basic ability to play golf and ability to jog between shots.


    Please email us with questions, comments or interest in playing or bringing speedgolf to your facility


    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 our unique speedgolf 'training rounds' 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 with like-minded others
    We also are actively looking for golf course partners to host speedgolf clubs at their facility. It requires zero investment or resources from your staff, attracts professional fitness-mined players, and proven track record for 7 years of driving incremental revenue without disputing regular play or course maintenance operations.


    • 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 'training rounds' are played in groups of 2-4 players of similar speed and abilities, keeping their own score and staying pace 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 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)
