This weekend, June 22-23, has been designated as Tee It Forward weekend to encourage golfers to play off of forwarded tees to help improve pace of play and the enjoyment of the game. Learn more about this initiative from the USGA and PGA.

Give TEE IT FORWARD a try during TEE IT FORWARD Weekend, June 22-23!
Do you wish your approach shot to the green was just a bit easier? Would you rather hit an iron into the green vs. a fairway wood or hybrid? If you want to play faster and have more fun, go ahead and move up a set of tees!
When you TEE IT FORWARD, you hit more lofted irons into greens, putt for birdies and pars more often and play faster and score better!
Many amateurs are regularly hitting approach shots on a par-4 hole from 185 to 205 yards. The fact is, most bogey golfers only hit approach shots generally with any accuracy from within 170 yards. When you TEE IT FORWARD, you have the potential to hit approach shots from 145 to 165 yards.
If you currently play from the forward-most tee area, consider playing from the 200-yard marker or family course tees (if offered at your facility). The goal is for golfers to hit more lofted irons into greens and have more fun!
Join your friends and enjoy a new, positive experience on the golf course - move up a set of tees and TEE IT FORWARD!

TEE IT FORWARD received great feedback in 2012 from golfers nationwide who reported:
  • 56 percent of those who used TEE IT FORWARD played faster
  • 56 percent indicated they are more likely to play golf more often
  • 83 percent hit more lofted clubs into greens
  • 85 percent had more fun
  • 93 percent continue to TEE IT FORWARD

'I like the the TEE IT FORWARD program and it has greatly enhanced my enjoyment of the game... Since moving up to the gold tees I am able to hit most greens in regulation and have recently post two scores of 80 in the past month!' - Peter T.
'We had a blast putting for birdie and making a few on many of the holes. Now that is what I call excitement and enjoyment of the game! I shot 81 for the round when I usually struggle to break 100 from the (further) tees. Go ahead - give a try - it is a BLAST!' - Connie C.
'I am 65 now and hit my drives about 210. I still play a decent game and shoot in the high 70's from th front tees. But I'm lucky to break 85 from the back tees. Believe me it is much more fun.' - Ronald H.
