- Why do they call it TEE IT FORWARD?
We believe most golfers are playing from tee markers too long for them to really enjoy the game. We would rather see golfers hitting mid-irons for approach shots into greens as opposed to hybrids, 3-woods or not even being able to reach greens. To make this happen, golfers are encouraged to perhaps move up and play the proper set of tees for their ability.
- How do I know which tees are best for me?
Determining the tees to play based on your ability and comfort level on the course. You can always ask your PGA or LPGA Professional for his/her opinion. Perhaps move up a set of tees from those tees you normally play and see which is more enjoyable.
- I am just learning and hoped to play from a yardage much shorter than my course offers. Do you have any suggestions?
First, you should ask your PGA or LPGA Professional for his/her opinion. There is a chance the course uses the PGA Family Course with modified tees placed in the fairway. If not, try teeing off from the 150-yard marker for par 4s and the 200-yard marker for par 5s (this gives a distance of around 2,600 yards).
- Should golfers of all different abilities in one group each play from different tee markers?
They can, but you should recommend that the group play from the same tee markers. This is more sociable, plus is proven to be faster. Recommend the group select tee markers that are most appropriate for a majority of the players, while ensuring that the weakest player could still enjoy the experience.
- Shouldn't golfers select tees based on their handicap?
Not in this approach. The idea is to help golfers play from tees that allow them to hit more lofted clubs for their approach shots.
Go Ahead - TEE IT FORWARD and have more fun playing golf!
