Taking Sex Out Of Golf

October 2nd, 2015

Gender-free tees are common in the USA and the concept is attracting attention in the UK as a growing number of clubs abandon ladies’ and men’s tees. They’re replacing them with tees which any member can play off to suit their ability and inclination.

It’s seen as the perfect way to encourage improving golfers, to retain ageing players and to promote social golf. Golfers who are losing length can move to forward tees; improving players can gain an extra challenge by moving back and social golfers can choose to play together off the same tees. Seems a great idea to me.
