Hello Mister Fritz,
Since 2007 we are able to rate women hits for men and men hits for women with the course rating system. The only exceptions are white for men because they are not rated for women and black which will not exist in the future but which is still part of the course.
Find the right color for you here:
|Back||only for men||white|
|Back standard||men and women||yellow|
|Middle||men and women||blue|
|Forward standard||women and men||red|
|Forward||women and men||orange|
So it is possible for players to choose between different opportunities. Women cannot only hit from red but also from yellow and men not only from yellow but also from red. This is only possible with different handicaps. The chart of changed handicaps needs to be published in your club.
This variation is only possible if this free choice of tee hits is published in the announcement.
If it was not announced everyone has to play from the common tee offs. This has no effect on the par of the course.
If you are playing a private round and want to play from different colors please contact the secretary of the golf course. Hopefully I was able to assist you and ENJOY YOUR GAME!
