An industry initiative to encourage golfers to play from tees best suited to their abilities.
Designed to help golfers have more fun on the course and enhance their overall experience by playing from the set of tees best suited to their abilities, “TEE IT FORWARD,” is a new initiative that can be implemented at facilities nationwide.
What’s in it for the golfer?
FUN! By moving up to another set of tees and playing the course at a length that is aligned with their average driving distance, golfers can experience an exciting, new approach to the game that can produce more enjoyment and elevate their desire to play more golf.
Feedback from Players:
- 70% of players who “tee it forward” had more fun!
- 90% would encourage a friend to “tee it forward”
- 52% would play more often knowing they could “tee it forward”
What’s in it for the golf facility?
Speeds up play resulting in more rounds.
Happy golfers come back and play more often.
Doesn’t necessarily require adding a new set of tees - many facilities already have multiple tees in use every day. It is about changing the mindset of golfers in a positive way and encouraging people to consider setting aside playing from 6,500-6,700 yards and moving up to a length of 6,000-6,200 yards or moving from 6,000-6,200 yards to 5,700-5,800 yards.
