IMHO, at least 1x green + 1-2x range a week.... provided you are talking abt
maintaining at single HC for eg. If u are hitting 130+, then its a diff story and objectives

You can practice once a week... if time is precious to you...
Just make sure you practice smart

Not just go to the range and hit ball after ball...
Have a practice plan

It should be able to maintain standard

The merits of practicing indoor in front of a mirror is much overlooked.

Save time, save money, and can work wonders.

This was reinforced to me when I was playing at Orna GC in Malacca. There was a group of Korean kids on a golf camp. Played in the day, in the evening before dinner it was chip and putt, then after dinner, driving range.

It was while observing the kids at the driving range that I noticed they always looked behind them at various points in their backswing. Behind them were long sliding glass windows running almost the full length of the range, and every kid was checking their backswing positions.

The value of doing this at home and gaining visual feedback with a full or even half length mirror can only be understood after trying it and then heading out to the range.

I've discovered for me that using a mirror the nite before a game can yield visible results on the course the next day too.

Depend what standard you're looking ...

My opinion is still individual becuase individual have the own body condition.. some need to work out everyday in order to maintenance, some no needs.. However golf is not just hitting the ball , this is a mental game also. one thing for sure , need to get fit to play golf.

I think batman is quoting the training for a touring pro or single HC on the way to turn pro....

Just like money, time is relative to how much one can afford to waste....Smile

How much to practice? let me quote right sided coach

"As for pro and low H/C players (0-4), a rough guide would be 3 x 18 holes per week, 1000 balls at range and 5-6 hours on shortgame per week. Do this for many years and you may achieve this level.

There is also the talent and physical and mental characteristics that are needed. "


and I agree with him..... perhaps divide by half for average golfer

I used to be able to break 100 consistently when I play twice a week and driving range 3 times a week.

Now, I play once a month and driving range once a month. Not enough to maintain.

as a rough gauge, can I say for example at the minimum:

20 - 15 HCP (1 x 18 holes a week, 300 balls range a week, 2 hrs short game a week)
14 - 10 HCP (2 x 18, 500 balls, 4 hrs short game)
9 - 5 HCP (3 x 18, 1000 balls, 6 hrs short game)

hmm.. looks like I should be happy as I am about 20+ and don't even put in 2 hrs short game a week or hit the range that often. Very Happy

It's not the amount of time spent on practice. It's whether or not the aspiring golfer is practising correctly .... no amount of mileage put in is going to ensure consistency if the swing is mechanically flawed from the beginning.
