What is Pitch and Putt?

Pitch & Putt is a sport like a short holes' (9 holes) golf.  You can go the round in less time than golf, so that not only adults but children and elderly adults can enjoy it easily.


Pitch and Putt is defined by IPPA as follows:

Distances: (a) Length of hole: 90 meters maximum

(b) Length of 18 hole course: 1,200 meters maximum

Clubs: three clubs maximum, one of which must be a putter


Pitch & Putt may be unfamiliar competition in Japan at present, but it is popular all over the world and expected to develop more and more.
