Grand Rapids-based Indian Trails Golf Course announced Tuesday that it is the first golf course in the state to be recognized as a speedgolf course by Speedgolf USA.
Speedgolf is a fitness alternative to traditional golf where golfers run rather than walk or ride in a golf cart.
“By adding speedgolf to our offerings at Indian Trails, we can provide opportunities for outdoor recreation that fit the lifestyle of more visitors,” said David Marquardt, the city’s parks and recreation director. “I’m excited to expand our commitment to a healthy and active community.”
“As a runner and golfer myself, I’m excited to begin offering speedgolf at Indian Trails,” said Craig Kooienga, Indian Trails greenskeeper. “I think this will bring in some new golfers who are looking for something quicker than a typical round.”
Speedgolf tee times will be on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 6:45-7 a.m. Greens fees are $10 for nine holes and $15 for 18 holes.
Visitors can book tee times and learn more on the Indian Trails Golf Course website.
