Play Golf in Less Time

Play Golf in Less TimeFinding time to play golf

When you start to golf, you might think it’s going to take too much time to really play. But, you don’t need to spend an entire day on the course to enjoy the game of golf!

Play Nine Holes

A traditional 18 holes of golf takes about four to five hours. But what if you only have a couple of hours to play? Consider playing nine holes instead of 18. You’ll have a lot of fun and still be able to work on your game and get to know a course in that time.

Play a Par-3

Many golf courses in Minnesota have Par-3 and executive courses to play. These courses are meant to be played quickly and still allow you to play 18 holes if you like.

Par-3 courses are made up of just par-3s, which means you can play a round in less time. If you’re a beginner golfer, Par-3s are also shorter so you won’t have to struggle with the length of a standard course. An executive golf course is designed to be played quickly. It’s made up of par-3s and shorter par-4s or 5s.

Play Games Instead of a Round

If you love to get out and golf with your friends – there’s no reason to not do it more often! Even if all of you don’t have a few hours to play 18 holes, or even 9, you can still get out and golf and have fun. Add some games into your golf game. Here are some of the PGA’s favorite putting games to not only have fun but also improve your putting! You can do this in your course’s practice area or even at home.

Hit the Driving Range

The best ways to get better at golf are to take lessons and practice. If you’re squeezed for time, get out to the driving range and hit a bucket of balls over lunch or right before or after work. It’ll help you work on your swing and lining up your shots correctly. And – there’s nothing like hitting your favorite course in Minnesota to clear your head!
