FABULOUS GUINNESS WORLD RECORD CHALLENGE!
Fastest Round of Golf A Guinness World Record challenge
F.R.O.G. is a group of enthusiastic golfers who have been accepted by Guinness World Records to challenge the fastest round of 18 holes of golf by a team, right here in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. In the spring of 2020 in Calgary, drones will hover over the fairways and audiences with camera phones and land cameras will capture a team of golfers tee off and play through 6000 yards and 18 holes of golf, as officials keep time. Follow us on social media and watch on Vimeo as this local team of golfers attempt to break the current world record of 13 mins and 42 seconds.
We are LOOKING For Golfers!
This record breaking challenge needs team players and volunteers. Contact Bill Stamile at stamileB@outlook.com
Each of the 18 Holes will have a Team and each Par will have a minimum of players per hole.
Time for each attempt will start when a ball is put into play on the first hole, the hole team will play the ball into the hole in the fastest possible time at all times adhering to the rules of the RCGA, once the ball is holed out a volunteer will sound the horn and the team on the next hole will immediately tee off another ball and the attempt will continue under this format until the ball is holed out on the 18th green. Each player that has a golf club in their hands on the course on a successful record attempt will have their names listed in the Guinness Book of World Records. The existing record is 13 minutes and 42 seconds, and is held by Farnham Golf Club, in Farnham Surrey UK.
