Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Are players responsible to know the Rules of Golf?
A: Yes. The USGA Rules of Golf are used to govern Speedgolf USA competition, except when the Rules would substantially impede a Speedgolfer’s pace of play. In those cases, local rules for Speedgolf are put into effect.
Q: Are there any other local rules for this tournament I need to know about?
A: - Yes. Many tournaments institute local rules to address issues specific to the event, course, and conditions. Local rules for the tournament are sent to you well in advance of the event.
Q: Are bags/clubs/equipment allowed on the green surfaces?
A: - No.
Bags, clubs, or player's equipment are not permitted on the green surfaces. First time warning, followed by 1-stroke penalty for each subsequent breach of rule.
Q: What do I do in a rules situation on the course if I'm unsure how to proceed?
A: Follow the rules procedure for a lost ball/ob: 1-stroke penalty instead of 2-strokes.
Q: Can I wear/use my round tracking tech (garmin, smartphone app, hr monitor) during competition?
A: Yes. Your Speedgolf round data can be used in a myriad of valuable ways to give people a better understanding of just how awesome this sport is!
Q: Can players wear headphones and listen to music during competition?
A: Yes. Players should limit the volume to a level that allows them to hear their scorekeeper, a player yelling 'fore' from behind, or a horn blast from the tournament director if play needs to be suspended.
Q: What kind of interaction between players and spectators is permitted during the round?
A: - Very little. Keep it simple. Players play. Spectators spectate.
Q: Can people 'run with you' during the round?
A: Yes. Spectators are allowed to follow on foot, or pace ahead, provided they maintain an objective distance that does not interfere with or disturb normal play. Repeated interactions may be construed as giving/asking for advice, and a 2-stroke penalty may be assessed.
Q: Will spectator carts be available?
A: Yes, usually. The proshop may charge a cart fee. Spectator carts should remain on the cart path. Drivers must agree to operate the cart with safety in mind at all times.
Q: Can spectators help you look for a lost ball?
A: Yes. Spectators are allowed to aid in the search for lost golf balls using care not to improve the lie of the ball.
Q: Can anyone watching you give you yardages?
A: No. You're on your own.
Will there be an online leaderboard?
A: Yes. Scoring for each player will be be posted online after they complete their round.
Q: Will there be a live video feed?
A: SpeedGolf USA will be live streaming throughout the day on Facebook and Instagram. @speedgolfusa
