There is only one set of tees rated for women at my home course, so for handicap purposes I only turn in scores I play from those tees. I know there is math I can do to get a rating from other tees but I haven’t gotten ’round to that yet.
For the time being and for some great extra practice, I sometimes play tees further back. Yesterday evening, my hubby and I had the course to ourselves, so we played the rear most tees, the blues. As to be expected, I got a lot of long club practice trying to get anywhere near the greens on second or third shots.
I am proud to announce I didn’t get any triple bogeys, just a lot of doubles. But I also shot two bogeys and a par. I was most proud of the par I made on a one-putt.
The best thing about playing more difficult tees is that when I play round two of the two lady best ball tournament from the red tees tomorrow morning, they will seem easy.
Blue tees, I’m coming for you and I plan on getting more pars!
