Talking Speed Golf - T.C. Jester Park 38 min + 3

Who is game for playing tomorrow at T.C. Jester Park Houston, TX @ 9:00AM? Should take about 30-45min. Not your typical game. Learning to throw accurate on the run takes time. Come get your intro to Speed Golf

*but....you're from Texas and you've played here

A few years ago some speed golfers blew through our group a couple of times in a 3-day period. No 'excuse me', 'heads up', or 'do you guys mind?'. Just ran through throwing and were soon gone. I haven't seen them since, so I'm thankful that the practice didn't seem to catch on around here. Annoying as hell, like they owned the place, everyone else be damned. I never saw them until they threw in on us. Hope it wasn't you.

Funny thread in that 20 something years ago right before I gave up trying to play myself and some other track/cross-country runners from my college played this way basically because we couldn’t throw. My throw count was probably a bit better than normal like double bogey golf... but I was fast. Wish I remembered our stroke/minute conversion.

Great for timing, especially in tournament conditions.

Obviously it isn't the case everywhere, but speed golf at 9 AM on a weekday on most courses around here shouldn't be too much of a problem.

Jerks are jerks, these ones just happened to be playing speed golf.

I grew up in Washington. My dad retired outside Bremerton. Texas is this hot muggy place were I work till I can retire to the Pacific Northwest or a tropical island (my wife's choice).

I run Highland Road Park in Baton Rouge all the time. I play with just a Teebird and Aviar when I run. My best time is 23:22 but that's car to car (so more like 22:30 from first tee to last basket).

The formula I use is strokes + (minutes*2)
