It’s ok to Tee It Forward

Published 10:43am Friday, May 3, 2013

Shoot better scores, have more fun and play faster.

Is it possible to do all that?

It is if you simply – tee it forward. Tee it forward is an awareness campaign to encourage golfers to play the course at a length that best suits their abilities. It allows golfers to hit approach shots into greens using more lofted clubs – make more pars and birdies, play faster and have fun.

To insure that everyone at Tryon Country Club (TCC) has a proper set of tees to play from we have added two new sets of markers called the ‘FUN’ tees. This allows us to accommodate players of every level of ability and age. These courses give us five 18-hole layouts with varying yardages of 3,028; 4,020; 5,531; 5,666 and 6,255.
