Kind of agree on this... When I first started, putting was the easiest part, now somehow it has become the hardest...lol.

Let's not damage the course for serious golfers lets just find ways to make game more inviting.

1 - beginner times; I like this. Cheap rates, but expect to be playing with hacks and 5 hr rounds. When I first started playing I played on an executive course, nice and short, but just importantly only beginners on it and I felt comfortable. Not fun trying to learn and getting ran over by better golfers, or worse, having them upset behind you or hitting at you.

2 - Family Times on executive / par 3s: how about a family rate of like $30 for a family of 4 to play 9 holes? Maybe could even be set up like putt putt where they have free clubs you can use.

3 - beginner tees / kid tees: well... I get there are "women's" tees, but how about either not calling then that or making even shorter ones for kids? Women's tees are still too long for children. And men, no matter how bad, always want to play off "men's" tees...

Time: Too many working people don't have time for eighteen or even nine on a regular basis. On one course I play you could go 10, 11, 18 and get some golf in on the way home from work in a half hour.

 

Cost: Club manufacturers should make a good, entry-level, eight-club set for under $400.

 

Pitch-and-putt courses: Nine-holers with holes between 40 and 100 yards. Good for setting the hook in newbies.

 

Youth: Discounts on range balls and green fees. Do private courses have caddies anymore? I did this for two summers when I was 13 and 14. Golf Big Brothers/Sisters.

 

Tricking up the course is the answer to what isn't the problem.

I think the 15" cup is perfect for the charity golf scrambles to speed up play.  I don't know how many more +5hr charity golf tournaments I can play...

I cannot imagine cutting a 15" cup into a green. That is something that would play heck on the crew when it came time to move it. Getting it level and flat. That would turn a 1.5 hour morning job into 4 hours

Reports are that it takes no longer.
