Most everyone agrees the pace of play at many golf courses is abysmal. What's not in agreement is how to fix the problem. We offer a suggestion in this week's The 19th Hole Golf Show: assigning a time value to your round by charging for golf by the hour. We explain why it makes sense, including that it assigns some value to your time as a player and reinvigorates value into the green fee that's been rendered meaningless by price cuts and the poor economy.
What do you think? Listen to the show and let us know what you think.
