    Would make me quit if I had to regularly play greens that quick, every 3 footer is outside the hole and being lined up 12 times and suddenly it takes 5 hours.

    Re: Fast or slow greens

    Ours are generally 8-9 but probably closer to 8, and that's plenty fast enough for me to enjoy putting provided they're true. Don't want to spend all day ecstatic at 2 putting from 15'.

    I think I'm ok on fast greens, but I prefer to be able to have a go rather than lagging.

    No idea how quick ours are and I don't care, so long as they're all the same.

    I'm sorry but I doubt very much they were running at 13 on the stimp.

    Thats 2.5ft faster than the average tour venue in Europe.

    Re: Fast or slow greens

    Pah, ours were 14.5 the other day, they were so fast that my ball marker slid off the green.

    And I drove the 450 yard 16th.
    And I wore a jacket and tie in the bar afterwards.

    Only going off what the greenkeeper posted on Facebook yesterday, I'm told it was measured on the 11th green as it's the flattest on the course!

    Re: Fast or slow greens

    Played at Willesley Park today and notice in the Pro shop window proclaimed they were running at 8.5 today, I would have termed them as slow having played
    Handicap : 5.5
