YES. REGISTRATION INCLUDES ENTRY INTO BOTH THE SPEEDGOLF WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS AND THE ISGA TEAM WORLD CUP. PARTICIPANTS ARE ASKED TO IDENTIFY A PLAYING PARTNER FROM THE SAME COUNTRY, OR SEEK ASSISTANCE FROM THEIR NATIONAL BODY OR THE CHAMPIONSHIP COMMITTEE. IF A TEAM PARTNER CANNOT BE FOUND FROM THE SAME COUNTRY, THE ISGA WILL HELP PAIR UP COMPETITORS FROM DIFFERENT NATIONS WHO WILL PLAY FOR 'TEAM ISGA'!

Shenendoah Golf Course at
Turning Stone Resort & Casino
The Shenendoah course offers 18 holes of PGA-level golf in a spectacular natural setting.
The course was built and is maintained to comply with stringent Audubon International standards for environmental protection and preservation. Designer Rick Smith used the natural landscape to create wooded parkland holes, open pastures that capture the links feel, and beautifully simple low country-style holes. Designed, constructed and maintained to TOUR standards at more than 7,000 yards, the course offers conditions normally reserved for TOUR professionals. In 2006, Turning Stone Resort’s Shenendoah Golf Club was host of the PGA National Club Professional Championship.

Ready To Launch | Tuesday - June 5th
The ISGA is proud to officially launch the 2018 World Championships Event Website: Speedgolf2018.com. This website will continue to grow and expand as important and relevant content is added weekly, and then daily as we close in on the championships. To get started, we have provided general information about the competitions, the course, the resort, and a location map. More detailed information about the event can be found on the registration page.
Let me start by saying... the ISGA is planning the most epic week of competition in the history of Speedgolf. If you love this sport, you don't want to miss out!
It all starts with the US Championships on October 13th at Rome Country Club, just minutes from Turning Stone Resort. Then, we reboot the Speedgolf World Championships on Monday, October 15th, followed by an evening dinner banquet. Players will have the opportunity to meet, greet, and replenish their energy stores with a delicious and healthy buffet while founding members of the ISGA share all the exciting news and developments happening in the world of Speedgolf. To cap it all off on Tuesday, October 16th, we will inaugurate the first Team World Cup - a dream many players and ambassadors have had for years. Players will partner up and represent their country as they go for GOLD!
Event registration is NOW OPEN, and I wouldn't wait too long to sign up. Field sizes are limited and so far there have been more 'expressions of interest' than available spots. We expect registration to fill up on or before June 24th, so don't delay!
If this is your first big event, relax and smile - Speedgolf2018.com will be here to guide you every step of the way. If there are any questions you can't find answers to here or on the registration page, please send your inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org, and someone will respond right away. In the meantime...
