Anyone think 9 holes is plenty?

This has changed for me as I've gotten older. Now catching a quick 9 after work or on the weekend is a time friendly way to keep my game in shape. I still try to play 18 on the weekends if my schedule allows.

I was totally exhausted and should have passed for a game of golf today. Now my shoulders are killing me. I will go back to just nine until the shoulders heal up. I did play better on the back nine though, much better than the front.

For me nine holes isn't even worth the trouble.  Not to mention that it almost cost as much as 18 holes.

Plenty?  No.  But with two young kids at home it's about all I can get it at one time.

During the summer I only work a half day on Friday so I typically get in 18 holes.  Saturday mornings, though, I run through 9 holes as the sun comes up and can get home by the time the kiddos are done eating breakfast.

I would play all day everyday if I could. But like others have said, sometimes 9 is all you can get in. If I'm playing by myself, I'll play 2 balls if there is nobody behind me so it's almost as if I played 18 holes

Our course back home with a minor rearrangement of the hole numbers could allow for someone to play 6,9,12, or 18 holes.  Put the new gps in the carts with a CC swiper. Pay for 6 and after the 6th hole it asks if you want to keep going, swipe and play more or call it a day.  So forth and so on. I think it's a great idea. They think not.

If I only have an hour to spare, I'll run down to the neighborhood par-3 and play 2 or 3 balls all the way around. Great for practicing with short/mid irons and scrambling around green.

Unfortunately my medicare card came with a nice dose of arthritis, so 9 holes seems to be something I can walk and tote my bag of hickories. I mostly play at a 1940's era 9 hole course where you have a view of Lake Michigan on each hole. Seems to work for me.

I refuse to play anything less than 18 holes. OCD. I feel incomplete if I only play 9.

If I'm playing later in the evening, I'll literally finish the last hole or two in complete darkness. My brain is incapable of allowing me to quit before 18 holes are done.

9 is fine especially if the course is empty like it was for me this morning at dawn. I played 2 balls occasionally, dropping a ball wherever for extra practice. I had a chance to re-play a couple of holes since there was no one behind me for at least 4 holes but I didn't feel the urge to play more than 9.

On my own will usually play just nine and drop another ball from around 120 and try to be down in three from there, giving a bonus nine holes of par three chip and putt

Work at a course, so I have unlimited access to facilities, whether for  practice or play.  (We also have an indoor HD simulator, so I have access to a lot of other really cool courses, too.)  For me, nine holes isn't quite enough, but 18 is sometimes too much, especially when I'm managing nagging injuries/conditions.  My buddy is a member at the same course, and we usually time it to go out early in the afternoon and play 12-14 holes, then retire to the clubhouse for a couple of beverages before heading home.  It's a comfortable routine that allows me to indulge my obsession, while also keeping it in check.

I have often thought that 12 holes would be better for me. I don't know why it has to be 9 or 18.

I would like golf clubs to be more flexible and offer more options regarding pricing and holes played.
Some days I could easily do 12-14 holes but can only buy 9 or 18 holes.
I've mentioned it at the pro shop but get the usual shrug and response "no demand for that".

Simple solution:  pay for 18, stop whenever you want, and ask for a raincheck for the holes you missed.  The course should go for it, whether it's raining or not,  since they've already got your money.  And you get you're money's worth when you redeen the raincheck.  Where I work, we routinely accommodate customers who've had to pack it in for whatever reason.

If it's hot out (90*+), I don't enjoy 18.  The last two times I went out, I should have called it quits after 9.  The back nine was just a miserable experience.  Once I get to that "I just want to be somewhere else" place...there's no point in me sticking around to play another hole.

I would play way more golf if the entire thing took 2-3 hours instead of 5-6. I don't care about the # of holes, but right now a round of golf can kill most of a day. I've got a lot other things I enjoy doing, so golf sometimes feels like it takes forever.
Yup. For me, it's often a time issue.  There's nothing enjoyable about a 5+ hour round.

Sometimes 9 is too many.

Due to 2 little ones i usually stop at 6, there's a midway snack bar between 6 and 9 and we get ice cream.  This keeps the peace and interest in coming back.

p.s.  Over the last 2-3 years I've noticed that a lot of golf clubs are amalgamating with other clubs, lawn bowls e.g., or selling off land to developers, and their customer service is a lot better .They will probably survive while other clubs don't give a rats, they have their halcyon days albeit with an ageing membership, and when this membership dies off or become incapacitated, they will have nowhere to go. Discretionary monies are tight and I won't put up with sloppy service. Package deals (play and stay) seem to be doing well and this kind of deal appeals to me.  Tenterfield Golf Club on the New England hwy NSW is a good example, although we didn't play and stay (had our caravan) the meals there were excellent along with the service and the course was good as well - I would go back there for the deals.

I love golf. I would play everyday and hit range balls before and after the round.  For some reason I think 9 holes is just right.  I rarely play 18. Probably less than 10% of the time. Its not a fitness issue. I am in good shape and always carry my bag. Sometimes it is a time thing. As much as I love golf I refuse to be on the course for 5+ hours.  But even when I am the only guy on the course I am satisfied after 9 holes. Anyone else feel the same?

No.  Sounds like the course marshals should be doing a better job moving the pace of play along.  I try to play ready golf and many people I get paired up with do as well.  I played a slow 18 hole round last week and it took just over 4 hours (about 4:20) to complete.  18 holes can be between 3:15 to 4:30 at my home course.  Generally just at 4 hours.  As for 18 holes, I would play 36 if I truly had the time.
