‘Nine is fine’ is the message as Quick Golf launches in Dunkeld

As more and more players face pressures on their time, Quick Golf offers a solution for regular players and those new to the game: a quick nine holes at the value price of just £5 for non-members and £2 for members.
Quick Golf will take place weekly on Wednesdays beginning on 4th May and will run until September at one of the most picturesque golf courses in Highland Perthshire. Play is open to men and women with or without a handicap and will be on tees selected by Dunkeld & Birnam Golf Club.
Laurie Foster, one of the people behind Quick Golf, commented: “Everyone these days is time crunched and as a result there has been a steady move towards 9-hole golfing, not to mention a drop-off in the popularity of golf generally. Quick Golf formalises a trend that we have been witnessing for some time now at Dunkeld & Birnam Golf Club and worldwide. We hope it sends a message to all players, seasoned and new to the game, that although playing 18 holes is great, nine is a fine way of enjoying the game too.”
Douglas Ogilvie, Match Secretary, commented: “We believe the timing of this is perfect. Not only will Quick Golf run during the summer months, but it launches at a time when golfers want something different. Cutting the game in half is an ideal solution for those with less time on their hands. And what better place to enjoy a game of Quick Golf than our own historic course at Dunkeld.”
