Seems like if goal is for consistency of the workout incorporating running along with field work in a large open field would be more sensible. Not looking errant throws, not needing to gauge at a run what other players are doing or where they are, clean and clear ground to run on., ect

I used to discathon my way around the course pre-round before tourneys. It was a great way to wake up and get my mind and body sharp. I was also playing elite-level Ultimate, so I was in great shape. If I tried to do it now...heart attack city.

Gregg Hosfeld is/was probably the king of running thru disc golf courses. He would time his rounds.

Maybe once would have been fine, and maybe it was because of the stress of an already slow game. But I'd suggest only playing speed golf when the course is at least moving.

That said, I've played a few times. Because of the previous incident, I'm now a bit self conscious when I ask to play through.
I've done a lot of it over the years - definitely a morning golf activity.

I do this every now and then. I take a buzzz and tuck a towel in my shorts if its a little wet. I try to play courses that are over 5400 feet of golf distance, ensuring I will run at least a mile and a half in 18 holes. I don't really worry about the time, only that I stay at a good pace and never walk, only take breaks to throw. It's fun and has really helped my buzzz game. I have added 10% to my distance and definitely improved my shot shaping and accuracy.

the whole point of doing this is to combine a fun activity (playing a round of disc golf) with what most consider a boring and tedious activity (cardio) in order to get the best of both worlds. I do pick courses that are advantageous for this style (not crowded, open, not much trouble, long)

Trey Hamlet (kachtz on here) is the king of the running round. Most recent was the Hawk Hollow USWDGC layout in 25 minutes shooting a 51 (1060-ish golf). His 2 disc running rounds probably average about 30 points higher than his tournament rounds.

I don't run but I've tried my hand at 'speed golf'. Basically get loose and ready to throw, and play a short course. I was able to manage -15 in 44 minutes on a short course. It's pretty fun, it makes you either focus on playing better, or playing faster. Of course, when I go try this, the course is typically fairly slow.

I'd like to do this more often, but would likely get better actual workout results if I could run (my left knee is wrecked, long story but I don't run anymore) or add other things into it. At that point though, I'd rather just go work out!

Why not count every 30 seconds as another stroke since that is the PDGA-prescribed duration in which to complete a throw? Say you focus on the golf rather than speed and shoot a 50 in 30 minutes, "score" is then 110. Same course the next day really focusing on speed, shoot a 60 in 25 minutes to "score" another 110.

Add some pushups in for missed putts!
Ive been messing with adding in burpees to my normal round on the finishing holes to help simulate pressure at the end of a tournament round. I few burpees to spike the heart rate before all shots to simulate nerves. No clue if its working or not since I probably wont get to play another tournament round til 2020.
