Shoot Out is a slow game, very slow in the early going, because all remaining players must complete each hole before play moves on. On each hole, the high score is eliminated. Expect a lot of playoffs in the early going, adding even more time.
Alternately, Shoot Out might start with 19 twosomes playing alternate shot, but that will make the early holes even more time consuming.
Shoot Out is a fun game, but you better have plenty of time available to play it. Variations include using a smaller field and playing just nine holes, which can help speed things up.
