TOURNAMENT RULES & SCORING
The SGUSA Official Rules of Speedgolf will govern play. USGA rules apply. Rule 27-1 concerning lost balls & out of bounds is in effect, but shall be modified to a 1-stroke penalty. Official timing - the elapsed time for a player's round will start at the official tee time. Timing will be stopped when the ball is holed on the player's final green.
SCOREKEEPERS / CADDIES
Players may be assigned a volunteer scorekeeper who runs or drives a cart along with them during their tournament round. Scorekeepers will perform the following duties: a) Mark their player's score on the official scorecard. b) Help their player find their ball (forecaddying is encouraged). c) Rake sand traps for their player. d)Repair ball marks on greens made by their player.
All players have the option to bring their own scorekeeper with them to the tournament. Aside from the ability to keep up with their players, volunteer scorekeepers must meet two additional requirements: 1)arrive at the 1st tee staging area 15 minutes before their player's scheduled tee time. 2)commit to accurately and honestly recording player scores and following the above guidelines.
If you do not bring your own scorekeeper, we may pair you with a friendly and capable volunteer recruited from the local community.
Advice - USGA Rule 8 shall remain in effect, and advice is not permitted from players or spectators. Any verbal or physical communications between players and spectators could be construed as giving/receiving advice and may result in a 2-stroke penalty. The scorekeeper will serve as an eyewitness.
Spectators are allowed to help search for lost balls.
No Equipment on Greens - Per SGUSA policy, players may not place or drop bags/clubs/equipment (other than the ball) on the surface of the putting green for the purpose of making a stroke. Violations of this rule shall incur a 1-stroke penalty per incident.
Finish With All Equipment - Players must finish their round with all of their equipment through the green of the final hole played. The penalty for leaving equipment on the course is 1-stroke per incident.
A complete list of local rules will be made available to all participants the week of the event.
Medals/awards and non-cash gift cards will be provided to division winners.

5 Questions with Speedgolf USA Founder and Director Scott Dawley

Fed up of slow play on the golf course? Speedgolf could be for you!
Everyone has a story of playing an incredibly fast round...with all due respect to your best story, I like Wesley Bryan’s story better.
Slow play is one of the main challenges facing the game of Golf. But it's never a problem for Wes Cupp, world #1 Speedgolfer.
For some, golf can get a bad rap for being too slow. World Champion Speedgolfer Jamie Young cannot be accused of that.
