10 Tips for Playing Faster Golf

  1. Forget HONORS entirely; play ready golf at all times.
  2. Concentrate on determining your yardage before it's your turn.
  3. Try this guideline: from the time you pick up your ballmarker, you have 15 seconds to hit your putt.
  4. In the age of soft spikes, experiment with rounds where continuous putting is mandatory.
  5. The first golfer to hole out should tend the flagstick.
  6. Always park your golf cart on the path near the exit point of the green.
  7. After hitting a shot, hang on to your club until the cart has stopped at it's next position. Then store it.
  8. TEE IT FORWARD. Playing the best set of tees for your game will make it more enjoyable for both you and the folks playing behind you.
  9. Always watch your playing partner's shots. Hunting for golf balls is the biggest cause of slow play.
  10. Minimize your time at the turn to 6 minutes or less. Try to pre-order food/drink while on the 8th hole.
