But if attitudes don't change then the pace of play around those 12/14/18 holes will be the same, the same problems will occur and instead of a short round taking 1 1/2 hours it will take 2 1/4.....so no real change except you're on the course for less overall time...
But being on the course for less overall time is surely the core of many people beef. 'Pace' of play is used with the assumption that it is for 18 holes, rather than that pace itself is the problem. So fewer holes would possibly suit many. This seems to be the conclusion of the R&A and their pushing of 9 hole competitions.
