SHORT
COURSES

Short courses are a popular option for golf clubs for many reasons. They allow golfers to have a complete golf experience in a smaller window of time and using a smaller parcel of land, they can be a great environment for introducing new golfers to the sport and a fun way for all types of players to work on their game.
