Hybrid golf clubs make the game easier and more enjoyable. So do hybrid golf courses – that’s what golf architect Bill Coore calls them – because they’re designed to be fast and fun.

Most hybrid courses are amenities at larger golf facilities, but a couple of new ones are succeeding as stand-alone operations. Will hybrid golf courses ever gain the popularity of hybrid golf clubs? Could happen, in part because proponents of the concept include Davis Love III, Tom Watson, Tom Lehman and Tiger Woods. Here’s a sampling of the wide variety of hybrids on the market.
