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

    After returning from the 2015 Speedgolf World Championships, Scott Dawley and Dude Spellings decided it was time to start a podcast. The sport was in the beginning stages of major transformation, and we set out to document this revolutionary change in real time!

    In the beginning, we engaged with forward thinking guests from around the world of golf about where they saw the game headed in the 21st Century. There are some amazing conversations in the first 50 episodes. Back then, there wasn't enough Speedgolf action to cover on a weekly basis, but our ultimate goal was to help grow the sport and develop into the world's only podcast devoted exclusively to Speedgolf.


    As we approach our 100th episode, I'm proud of the unique content we have been able to produce and share with our listeners and fans. The entire POC library of past episodes is available on this website and will always be free to download and enjoy.


    Starting in 2019, the POC Golf Podcast proudly relaunches as the POC Speedgolf Podcast! Each week, we will profile and interview the pioneers, innovators, entrepreneurs, athletes, and record breakers – the change agents in and around the future Olympic sport. With the help of our guests, the POC Speedgolf Podcast will shed light on the ways in which the game is growing and evolving to keep pace with the demands of the modern world: Fast. Affordable. Healthy. Fun!


    Through the podcast you can join us on this incredible journey the game of Speedgolf is on. Subscribe today and get notified when we release a new episode.


    Until then – pick up the pace; play from your heart.


    -Scott Dawley-


    We're passionate Speedgolfers committed to broadcasting

    the next decade (at least) of transformation in the game.
