PLAY 9 at Freeport CC on August 9

Aug 2, 2018

The USGA's PLAY 9 program recognizes and celebrates the many virtues of the nine-hole round. Playing nine holes is a great way to fit the game into a busy schedule and introduce new players to the game. Whether you play at a 9-hole specific facility or you choose the front or back side of an 18-hole course, playing a nine-hole round is a great way to play more of the game we all love. Because let's be honest, playi ng nine holes is better than playing no holes at all!

The MSGA will be working with some of our member clubs to encourage players to PLAY 9 at various courses around the state this summer. Our next PLAY 9 date is scheduled for Freeport CC on August 9. Participants don't need to belong to the MSGA to play.
