The Inaugural Championship
Speedgolf USA proudly joined the ranks of other prominent National SpeedGolf Associations (NSGO's) around the world, hosting a Speedgolf national championship in 2017: including Speedgolf Australia, New Zealand Speedgolf, British Speedgolf, Japan Speedgolf, Speedgolf Sweden, and Speedgolf Finland.The inaugural 2017 United States Speedgolf Championships was held on Monday December 11th, with official practice rounds taking place Sunday, December 10th. A weather front passing through caused a 2-hour frost delay, yielding to record high temperatures in the afternoon.
New to competitive Speedgolf was the Men's Finals, where the top 4 qualifiers played 9 holes of Sprintgolf (hole-by-hole Speedgolf). The action was captured by Jomez Productions, and groundbreaking highlight coverage of the national championship was released in February 2018.
The Tournament Venue
The inaugural national championship was contested at the prestigious Golf Club Of Houston - Member Course. A former host course for the PGA Tour's Shell Houston Open ('03-'05), this Jacobson-Hardy design required an equal amount of endurance and golf skill from the competitors. The rough was penal, the greens demanding, and the course length was fitting for a national championship track - nearly 6 miles from 1st tee to 18 green. Players from the Amateur and Women's Championship divisions averaged 92 strokes in 72 minutes. The men's championship division averaged 82 strokes in 58 minutes. Mack McLain and Lauren Cupp set the pace in 2017 and became the first to etch their names on the national championship trophy. Larry Levinson and Brian Noble captured the Amateur and 50+ division awards.
Come be a part of Speedgolf history at the 2018 United States SpeedGolf Championships.
The Marquee Field
SpeedGolf USA attracted the strongest field in professional Speedgolf in 2017, 6 of the top 10, 11 of the top 20 in the men's Speedgolf Power Rankings, and 2 of the top 5 in the women's rankings were on hand to chase down the inaugural US national championship trophy. Players traveled from 4 countries and 17 US States to participate in this history-making Speedgolf event.
In addition to the championship divisions, this marquee event offered non-elites, novices and amateurs new to the sport of Speedgolf an 18 hole division including amateurs and masters (50+) flights, as well as a shorter 9-hole option.
