11 Tips to help speed up your round of golf
It is very easy for new (and not so new) golfers to spend in excess of 5 hours playing 18 holes.
There is no big secret to speeding up play. In fact there are many little things you can do that will save you a few seconds here or there. If these
savings are factored out across each player in your group and across 9 or 18 holes the savings can be huge. E.g. if each player saved 1 minute of time per hole and there were three players in your group, your group will cut 27 minutes over 9 holes and 54 minutes over 18 holes. A big saving indeed.
Here are 11 suggestions of how you can save time in your next game of golf:
1. Walk quickly between shots. This doesn't mean you have to run; just walk at a good pace in between your shots.
2. Be ready to play when it is your turn to play. You should have your club in hand and all you really need to do is have your
practice swing, take your address and then hit the shot.
3. Only have one practice swing before hitting a shot. Once practice swing should be all you need to loosen your muscles and give
you the feel for the shot you are about to play.
4. Mark your score card while someone else is playing a shot. Don’t mark your score card when it is your turn to play. You can
always mark the card while another in your group is playing their shot.
5. Leave your golf clubs at the nearest exit point from the green to the next tee. If you are playing a course for the first time take
note of the direction the group in front of you walk off the green you are playing to. This is where you should leave your clubs.
6. Line up your putt while someone else is putting. While one of your playing partners are putting you can use this time to line up
your putt (as long as you are not interfering with their shot). You can also learn from their putt if they are in a similar position to
7. Assess your shot and club selection as you are walking along the fairway. As you are walking up the fairway you can assess
some of the factors in playing your next shot. E.g. wind, (strength and direction), pin position, distance of the shot, lie of the land,
8. When in doubt play a Provisional Ball. If you think there is a possibility your ball may be lost or out of bounds hit a provisional
ball. By doing so you eliminate the need to walk back to the position you played the last shot from and hit another shot should your
ball be lost or out of bounds.
9. Pick up your ball once you can no longer score. A point or half in par and stableford when playing in par and stableford events
you have used all of your shots on a particular hole and can no longer register a score. You must pick up your ball.
10. Warm up before you play your game. By warming up before you play your game you will increase the chance of hitting better
shots which will allow you to have less shots per hole and therefore a quicker round and better score.
11. Putt out if you are within a metre of the hole. Once your ball ends up within a metre it is a good idea to hole out (unless you will
be standing on another players line). Although you may not be furthest from the hole you are permitted to hole out.
