Executive golf courses are normally 9-hole courses that have shorter distances than standard length courses. They are often used by beginners who haven’t quite found the range in their game. They’re also popular for those who don’t have 3 or 4 hours to play on a traditional course.
Everyone can benefit from an executive course for a variety of reasons. Even if you’re experienced, playing an executive 9 is a great way to work on your short game by allowing you to pull out your irons and wedges frequently.
So whether you’re just short on time or need a little work on your chips, an executive course can save you time and help you hone in on your short game skills. It’s also a great way to introduce younger players to the great game of golf. By the way, skip the golf cart on the executive course and walk it for a little exercise.
