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 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.
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 2022 season (April-September), and includes the following:

Chester Washington is a flat, fast course and has been a great supporter of Speedgolf SoCal, and is a great course for speedgolf beginners or veterans. Wide open fairways with some slight hills, our groups play between 75-90 minutes for 18 holes.
Starting in April, we will be playing every Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Space is limited and first priority given to Speedgolf SoCal members, but new players encouraged to join.
