Forward Tees

Forward Tees enhance the golfing experience and improve course playability for many golfers. Even the UGA golf teams use the forward tees to change things up from time to time, making forward tees truly fun for everyone! The tees have been rated by the Georgia State Golf Association and course handicap sheets are posted for players with GHIN handicaps.

UGA GC is known to be a great challenge for all golfers, so our forward tees make it more accessible for all skill levels. The Green tees are listed at  4,354 yards, which is the ideal yardage for players who hit their tee shots between 150 to 175 yards. The Black tees play 5,186 yards, making them the best choice for players that hit their tee shots between 175 and 200 yards.  For those just beginning, we suggest moving up to the 200 or 150 yard markers in the fairways.  We also recommend moving up a tee during the winter months when the golf course plays much longer than the rest of the year.  Don't wear yourself out, play from a tee that makes sense for your game!

The United States Golf Association and the PGA of America launched the ‘Tee it Forward’ program in 2011 to “help golfers have more fun on the golf course and enhance their overall experience by playing from a set of tees best suited to their abilities”.
