hen time is short, but you still want to take some
divots, the nine-hole round can be the perfect solution. So far in 2020,

Golf Foundation. Core golfers – defined as those who play at least eight rounds
a year – reported nearly 33% of their rounds this year have been the nine-hole
variety. Nearly half the time (48%) occasional golfers have played this year,
it’s been a nine-hole round. The TGA and USGA celebrate the quicker, nine-hole
loop with the PLAY9 initiative. To learn more, click here.
