Holyoke Country Club Speed Golf Championship
HCC held a "Speed Golf Event" at the Club on Sunday 10/18. Speed Golf is a sport that combines golf & running. The clock starts when you hit your first tee shot and stops when your last putt goes in the hole. Your score is the total number of shots added to the number of minutes you were on the course.
Everyone had a lot of fun and the winner had a golf score of 42 in 28 minutes for a total score of 70.
We are planning to hold regular Speed Golf events on Saturday or Sunday mornings for next season before the Regular golfers go out.
So if your looking for a "Quick 9"on a weekend morning be sure to check it out!
1st Place - P. Kick 42-28 = 70
2nd Place - J. Dominick 43-30 = 73
3rd Place - N. Fontaine 47-29 = 76
4th Place - M. Chmiel 49-35 = 84
