Speed golf is an 18-hole round of golf where score and amount of time used to complete the course are calculated in to the final rankings. In expanding its partnerships with Bandon Dunes, the Southwestern Foundation sponsored a complimentary breakfast to the golfers and volunteers at the event, with the entire Southwestern golf team counting among them.
