Hi All, I;m looking for format / strategies for veteran golfers who as the years go by are no longer able to complete 18 holes of normal comp golf.
I'd like to hear from those who have successfully implemented programs that facilitate a day out on the golf course for those physical/mental "seniors moments" that otherwise exclude many from 18 holes & indeed a GA handicap.
I;d really like to hear from current able bodied/minded golfers who in their future golfing career would like to be accommodated by their club by offering….???
I played in a vets day (at South West Rocks) a while back where they only play 12 holes as their regular weekly competition.
I wasn't a fan at the time but there must be others doing similar to this.
It will be interesting to see what you come up with.
Are you looking to start something at a particular venue?
Hi Brian ,
I am aware of two different clubs that play a 9 hole format & a 14 hole format,
as well as their normal 18 hole comps.
Both these formats follow the usual normal game layout
in conjunction with their 18 hole games,
with the exception of handicap & tees played from.
These formats are to help ageing golfers to get out of the house & have a day out with mates.
They do not replace the normal 18 hole format.
In these formats handicaps are relevant to games played.
Players get a shot back for a game played & lose 3, 4 or 5 shots for winning.
Over time everyone does.
shaky, yips putters are not penalised for inadvertently touching the ball before their stroke & we all know that "old Bill" will never remember all the shots he had on the current hole let alone the last one!
And as for anchoring ,well thats definitely OK!
Not normal golf for not normal guys.
