Question: What tees do you play from ?

Posted by: user8 [FORUM MODERATOR] | Thu 6th Nov 2008 11:38 | Last Reply

Hi all. Just doing some site updates, tweaks and improvements and would welcome your thoughts.

Question - What tees do you play from ?

Trying to get a generic set like below, anything unqiue or obsure in some parts of the world ?

Generic - Blue, Black, White, Yellow, Red, Gold, Champ

Watch out for some more questions, hopefully all aimed to improve the site for you.

Regards, Darren.

We play whites for club comps and yellows for social rounds and the gals play off red.

But we don't have any others....

Cheers for the constructive reply Colin.  I would have said 'What tees do you play off' for the ambiguity

Yellows for social play & whites for comps (at my course) & blues for comps (at other courses).

Wayne, our course only allows 5 & below handicaps to play off the whites in general play which I think is unfair because they are getting use to these tees & when a comp comes around they have had loads of experience.

I'm not sure about your 18 & below to be able to play off the back tees??? This game is getting slower by the week & we don't want it to get any slower by having various groups playing off different tees??

Ha ha Perry!

I've only ever played off the yellows, not a member of a club so never get the chance to play off the white competition tees.  Looking at the whites at some of the places I've played at recently I just realise that the game is hard enough just where I am, thanks...

Wayne,

I was just using your comment for the majority of courses where they only have 3 sets of tees, RED, YELLOW & WHITE.

White for comps , yellow for social, reds for ladie's, blue for juniors although mostly juniors just play off yellow anyway and the distance they can drive a ball they should be off whites.

Wayne,

Come & play my course & I'll show you the 5th off the Whites, it's an extra 70yrds back & it's all tree-lined. For the love of god I can't make the the fairway as I always pull hook my shot to try & hit it harder.

Take your point on board though 

John.

My Club only has 3 sets of tees - White for Men's Official Comps only, Yellows for general play for the Men, and Reds for all Ladies games, whether official Competitions or general play.  If the winters get really wet, we have mats at all the holes which everyone plays from, but these haven't been used for a few years, apart from at a few individual holes (usually the par 3's).

As I've just come back form the States, most Clubs there have up to 6 tees, and usually ask you to play off them according to your handicap.  One example was:-
Gold Tees - handicaps 0 to 4 - Men only
Black Tees - handicaps 5 to 9 - Men or H/c 0 to 4 for Women
Blue Tees - H/c 10 to 15 for Men or 5 to 9 for Women
White Tees - H/c above 16 for Men or 10 to 15 for Women
Silver Tees - H/c 16 to 24 - Women only
Red Tees - H/c above 25 - Women only.

Other courses in the States told us to pick our tees according to the length of our home course, which is what we decided to do at all the courses, so we chose tees giving us around 6200 to 6600 yards total course length.

At my club we have White, Yellow and Red tees.

White for the comps, yellow for social and red for the ladies.

As a member I normally play off the White tees whenever I play.

Reds for Laideez.

Yellow for normal.

Whites for comps.

I always play from the whites unless I am playing with a guest as they are not allowed. Some holes are 50 yds longer from the whites!
