George Boxall and Tom Roberts are defending their British Speedgolf Pairs title. Last year they completed 18 holes in a staggering 41 minutes and six seconds to secure their victory. The field also includes a past World Guinness Record holder for the fastest PAR 5 hole, Steve Jeffs who is competing with Pro Golfer Luke Willett, also known as the Iron Golfer, a reputation earned by his extreme golf adventures. Others competing include a pair from France and a husband and wife team. Hoping to optimise their home advantage in a mixed pairs team are Sweetwoods Parks own Pro shop assistant pairing with the Ladies captain.
Since Speedgolf combines the golf score and time taken to complete the round, pace as well as accuracy will be key. Pairs will be set off at intervals and will also need to navigate the running start and finish which is a distinct part of British Speedgolf tournaments. The European Tour attracted millions of viewers to their Fastest Hole of Golf by a team of four, but completing a full 18 holes at pace is still something that has to been seen to be believed, we hope you will join us for this early morning golfing spectacle.
Join us on Saturday 8th June from 7.30am til 10am to see the championship for yourself.
