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. Get exercise and the excitement of golf and be back to your life in a flash!
Nothing like it!
There is nothing like the sensation of getting to your ball on the final hole of a competition, knowing you can make a birdie if you just control your emotions and make a good stroke when you get to the ball.
