We Help Golf Course Operators Increase Rounds & Revenue
Join the Speedgolf-friendly Course Network and get ahead of the game in 2020.
Survey Results Have Identified 3 Major Obstacles Facing 'Lapsed' & 'Latent' Golfers In 2020.
But you already know what they are:
Finding 4 or 5 hours for a traditional round of golf is hard to come by these days.
Everyone knows golf is an expensive sport to take up. Green fees, clubs, lessons, etc.
Golf is not easy, and if it’s not easy, it’s not fun. And if it’s not fun, why even try?
Is There A Solution? Yes!
SPEEDGOLF is an alternative to the traditional game that is:
People are busier than ever.
Most people can only afford to spend 30-60 minutes on sports and fitness per day. Plenty of time for 9 holes of Speedgolf, or 18 holes if you're really fit!
There are endless similar activities for $20 or less.
Give people a chance to play Speedgolf in the first or last hour of daylight, and they'll pay you up to $20.
It's not all about score.
For Speedgolfers, it's also about exercise, creativity, and sharing a fun and healthy experience with friends.
What Speedgolfers Are Saying
“Speedgolf is ideal for those who love the game but lead a busy lifestyle. Even with demands at work and a busy family life, I can still get in a workout and 18 holes in less than an hour." - Courtney W.
Speedgolf happens at off-peak hours, and we're done in a quarter of the time it takes for a traditional golf round. So charging us $15 or $20 when golfers are paying $50? I consider that fair. - Garrett H.
IT'S MORE ENJOYABLE
'My first Speedgolf round was a blast! I'm a 15 handicap and I made 6 pars in 9 holes. Excited. Euphoric! Unbelievable. I'm hooked!" - Ruben M.

Incremental Rounds & Revenue
Join the Speedgolf-friendly course network in 2020 and boost your bottom line
$15 adds up fast when you're a Speedgolf-friendly course.
Speedgolf-friendly courses attract more customers by offering a small window of affordable early morning or twilight tee times for players who want to go fast, get fit, and have fun ON the golf course.
What Operators Are Saying
Director Of Rev. Management - American Golf
“We look at tee times as perishable commodities. If 5:48 a.m. comes and goes and we don’t sell it, it’s worth nothing to us. Speedgolf has the potential to be a lucrative new revenue stream. You can send 16 players out in 10 minutes! I can’t think of an operator who wouldn’t want to give it a try.”
General Manager - Lakewood CC
“Operationally, Speedgolf helps us fill the shoulder times. By taking advantage of our off-peak hours with Speedgolfers, we can run (pardon the pun) an additional 20 to 30 golfers through the course on any given day.”
Director Of Golf - Cypresswood Golf Club
"Speedgolfers are generally active people who like to be outside, so we feel like they are a great target audience from a revenue standpoint, and from the perspective of taking up the game of golf."
General Manager - Blackhorse Golf Club
"I see an opportunity to attach value to every minute a customer is on my golf course. It's a creative and smart and modern way to be generating revenue, and with Speedgolf I have a ready and willing customer market."
Proof of Concept Studies
Prior to launching the Speedgolf-friendly network, we conducted short-term, limited studies in 4 different markets across the nation. These results reflect a hands-off approach by Speedgolf USA**, leaving marketing and outreach efforts up to the courses and players themselves. Those efforts are briefly summarized in each of the 4 cases below.
**As part of the Speedgolf-friendly network in 2020, member courses receive additional marketing and outreach efforts from Speedgolf USA, as well as exclusive access to valuable resources, tools, and support developed for Speedgolf-friendly course operators.

What The Media Is Saying
USGA Executive Dir.
“One of the USGA’s top priorities right now is to help golfers understand that pace of play directly affects their overall enjoyment of the game. To that end, we think that alternative games like SPEEDGOLF can be a lot of fun and also a way for golfers to realize that you may actually play better if you play faster.” –
Mike Davis | USGA
Golf Clubs In Drive For Healthy New Image
[A World Golf Foundation] study has recommended that a decline in its popularity can only be reversed by promoting new versions of the 500 year old game that are quicker or easier to play. [One of the] recommendations is the wider adoption of Speedgolf.
