The Pace Of Change Speedgolf Podcast: Broadcasting The Evolution of Speedgolf In The 21st Century

After attending the Speedgolf World Championships in 2015, Scott Dawley (@scottdawleygolf) and Dude Spellings (@dudespellings) decided it was time to start a podcast. The game of golf was already in the beginning stages of major transformation, and we wanted to document the revolutionary change as it was happening...in real time! In 2015-16 there just wasn't enough Speedgolf action to cover on a weekly podcast. So we spoke with forward thinking guests from around the world of golf about where they saw the game headed. Then, in 2017-18 we witnessed such a dramatic explosion in Speedgolf activity that most of our coverage began to revolve around developments in our sport. As we approach our 100th episode, I'm proud of what we have been able to share with our listeners and fans. Our content is truly unique in the world of golf. The entire POC library of past episodes is available at PaceOfChange.com, and will always be free to download and enjoy. Starting in 2019, the POC will exclusively focus on the developing world of Speedgolf! We will profile and interview the pioneers, innovators, entrepreneurs, athletes, and record breakers – the change agents in and around the game of Speedgolf. With the help of our guests, the POC will shed light on the ways in which Speedgolf is growing and evolving to keep pace with the demands of the modern world: Faster. Cheaper, More Fun! We invite you, the listener, to join us on this incredible journey the game of Speedgolf is on. Subscribe on iTunes today and get notified when we release a new episode. Until then, pick up the pace, play from your heart. -Scott Dawley-

Welcome back to the POC! As usual, we are broadcasting the evolution of Golf in the 21st century. In order to accomplish our mission, we profile and interview the pioneers, entrepreneurs, innovators, yes the game changers in and around the golf industry.

We've talked about FootGolf with the founders of the AFGL, interviewed the creator of FlingGolf, and covered the Speedgolf World Championships. Entrepreneurs, tech innovators, human performance experts, and world class athletes have been on the show. To sum it up, we turn on the mic and let the future of Golf come out.    

When you really get down to it, how and when the game practically evolves hinges one very important group of gatekeepers. It's their collective worldview and mindset that ultimately determines the world's view and mindset of what can happen when you spend time (and money) at a golf facility. Our guest today once surveyed 500 golfers, asking them to provide one word descriptions of Golf. One person out of five hundred, 1/500, wrote FUN. 

Hopefully the POC has revealed there is no shortage of new and exciting alternatives, or cutting edge technologies, or game changing products and services tailored to meet the demands of the busy, modern day lifestyle. The possibilities are endless!

But in the end, the buck stops with the golf course owners and operators. They are the real industry 'sharks' that decides to adopt or dismiss, to invite or decline. They are in control of the pace of change!

Recently I've been getting more and more messages, emails, and phone calls from golf course operators ready to begin offering strategic blocks of time on the tee sheet to attract 'faster' golfers. Josh Heptig, manager of 3 golf courses in San Luis Obispo, CA, contacted the POC after hearing about Speedgolf USA on Babbittville radio.   

Side note - I fondly remember a time (ha ha - like a year ago) when I would call a golf course and have to explain that playing fast has actually become 'a thing', a real sport called Speedgolf. To be fair, every GM and golf professional I've talked to has responded with openness and curiosity, even if Speedgolf wasn't a feasible option because of capacity issues, pricing, prohibitive terrain, or some other reasonable restraint. Not one has rejected it outright. 

This podcast is a little different than others. I decided to record my return phone call with Josh, with his permission of course, and give listeners the chance to hear an unscripted conversation with a forward thinking course operator. The audio quality is diminished, but I'm hoping the quality of our organic conversation more than makes up for it.

Josh and I have a request for you. If you liked what you heard, share this episode with the operators of the golf courses where you play. Thank you in advance, and here's to faster golf in 2017!
