6 AND 12 HOLE GOLF: A CONCEPT WHO'S TIME HAS ARRIVED!
Barbaron, Inc. has recently added a new twist to its traditional golf course design-and-build services. Terry LaGree, who has won national recognition for golf course design-and-build, has long been a fan of 6 and 12 hole regulation golf loops to enable golfers to play as much or as little as they would like.
With the decline of golf, including golf course closings, rounds-per-year, and number of active golfers.
SIX12 GOLF ™ can improve the 3 challenges golf faces today:
- Time it takes to play the game
- Making golf more fun for more people
TIME IT TAKES TO PLAY THE GAME
Playing 18 holes during summers in the south can be daunting for anyone but especially older golfers. But by incorporating 6 or 12 hole golf loops, golfers can “call it a day at different intervals.” This is very attractive in residential communities catering to seniors where these loops can be played in about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
MAKING GOLF MORE FUN FOR MORE PEOPLE
Barbaron’s 6 and 12 hole golf strategy is to make golf less penal and more fun for golfers. This is both in the design of the 6 and 12 hole loops, making the holes challenging for skilled players but providing easier routes of play for the novice or less skilled golfer.
