Pawtucket Country Club created new forward “green” tees this year.
TEE IT FORWARD is a joint initiative between the USGA and The PGA of America that encourages players to play from a set of tees best suited to their driving distance. In addition to providing more enjoyment for golfers, teeing it forward also can be one of the most important steps that golfers take in improving pace of play.
A recent survey of TEE IT FORWARD participants found that:
56 percent played faster
56 percent are likely to play golf more often
83 percent hit more-lofted clubs into greens
85 percent had more fun
93 percent will TEE IT FORWARD again
I have played several rounds with long term members that regularly play the forward green tees. Some of the senior members have shot rounds in the 70s.
They enjoy playing the game from the forward tees and the average handicap has fallen by 6 shots. Everyone is happy with “Tee it Forward!”
