We are delighted to announce that we have teamed up with British Speedgolf and will be hosting the 2019 British Speedgolf Pairs Championship.
The event takes place on our stunning parkland course in an area of outstanding natural beauty on Saturday 8th June between 7am and 10am.
Sweetwoods has been supporting Speedgolf, with one of our members, Mariette Hilborne running a weekly social session every Wednesday morning to introduce members and visitors of all abilities to this faster version of the sport.
Speedgolf combines the elements of running and golf in a fun way. As a more athletic form of the sport, players play a round on the lowest sum of shots as usual, but combine it with the time taken to run the course. Apart from the obvious health benefits of running the course, Speedgolf helps to accelerate the speed of play and may find that it enhanced their golf performance due to the fluidity of the sport which eliminates time consuming practice swings and other rituals, particularly those with a tendency to overthink their game.
The British Speedgolf Pairs Championship returns for its second year in 2019, evolving from the established Solo Open championship, but pairs adds a team work and social dynamic to the sport which is proving a big hit with players. Spectators will be warmly welcomed on the day and can savour an unforgettable experience as the Speedgolf pairs will complete their 18 rounds in under an hour!
