Description

The 2023 TC Speedgolf Spring Shamble will take place at Sugar Loaf - The Old Course on Saturday June 10. The Spring Shamble will be the first of three speedgolf events TC Speedgolf hosts this season.

A new tradition - Saturday June 10th. Starting at 6:30am, TC Speedgolf members will be at the course to offer coaching to new speedgolfers. Starting at 7:00am, teams of two will tee off, four minutes apart, and play 9 or 18 holes as fast as they can. Refreshments and awards will follow.

“Speedgolf is a refreshing twist on our favorite sport, and we’re glad to see it flourishing in northern Michigan” said Kris Wakeman, General Manager of Sugar Loaf. “Sugar Loaf has a proud tradition of hosting fun and funky golf events, and the Spring Speedgolf Shamble is a perfect fit for us.”

Divisions for all skill levels. Pairs can choose to compete in the Casual 9, Casual 18, or Competitive 18 hole divisions. All divisions will have non-cash prizes for winners. The Competitive 18 hole division will have a minimum cash prize of $100.

Speedgolf shamble rules. The Spring Speedgolf Shamble is a team best ball shamble. Your team’s time starts at the starter’s signal, and ends when you tap in your putt on the last hole. 

  • Shamble. On each hole, both team members hit the tee shot. The team selects one preferred tee shot, and both players play their second shot from that location (within 1 club length). Both players play their own ball from there. 
  • Best ball. The best individual score on the hole counts toward the team score. (For example, if Player A makes par and Player B makes bogey, the team makes par on that hole.)
  • (Competitive 18 division only) Both golfers must reach the green. To make sure it's truly a team effort, both golfers must get their ball on the green -- and  at least one must hole out -- before the team can advance to the next hole.
    Speedgolf Scoring. One stroke = one minute. (For example, if a team shoots 80 strokes in a time of 60:15, then their speedgolf score is 140:15.) No need to take turns – just play fast! 
  • Lowest speedgolf score is the winner (but you already figured that out, didn’t you?)
