I play just 9 holes every day weather permitting.

I think 27 is the right number. My group use to play 36 holes a lot then we got old. I'd have to agree with them I get tired walking 36 most days now. 27 is still a breeze.

There is such a short 9 hole course at my full length home course. I convinced my neighbor, a 34 HDC, that playing that course would build his game and allow him to practice approach shots. He plays it exclusively now and once every couple of months I join him. We have never had a desire to play it over again on that day.
Another view is that there are 18 "different" experiences in a normal golf round. If one doesn't take those 18 challenges then some feel that the opportunity is lost and the golf experience is shorted. It is all in what one is used to.
I agree with Greenie in that a 36-hole day was the norm when young. I couldn't wait to go around again to see where strokes could be gained and score improved. A few years later, 27 holes was plenty. Now, 18 holes fulfill my golf fix. Afterwards a nap is a necessity. It won't be a surprise to see 9 holes as a sufficient effort for the day.

a partial round to me. Can't just double a 9 hole score and think
that's your game. It's much harder to sustain your game for a full
But, hey, if you just like to play 9, why not? Lots of people do it.

I do this 3 times a week after work, alternating between the front and back nine. Sometimes I can get in about 14 before dark. Weekends are 18 always.

Okay, not true.
When I had less time to play, kids were young, a quick walking nine was great.
Now, not so much. Played 36 Friday, 18 Saturday, 27 Monday. Great weekend.

If I head to the course with the intention of playing 9 holes, I'll normally play quick and get 12-14 holes played instead.

Playing 18 during the work week is often not an option.
