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.

Only if I have already played 18 that day.

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.

No.  Not only no, I don't even know how the question could be asked.  It's absurd.

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.
