Golfers can easily fit 9-holes into busy lifestyles, in which two hours is now the span for most leisure activities. The 9-hole round of golf is consistent with the traditions of playing the game and is compatible with the Rules of Golf and the handicap system. This format can fit conveniently into a busy schedule and is ideal for after work.
