Given that only a small proportion of players play handicap events outside their own club, I think the effect on a World (or even National) Handicap system and therefore players outside the club is inconsequential. If that is what is needed to make the game playable and enjoyable for the club members, so be it. I can't get too excited.

I know of a local club that puts in place a local rule allowing tee up on the fairways. Basically because they are like yours are at the moment. Not an approved local rule but a realistic one.


Yep the club has been there and done that some 20+ years ago
Henceforth my tongue in cheek comment about rules

By the way. When tee up on fairway is done it can be because of plenty of grass but extreme wetness.
In their wisdom teeing up is made compulsory. While tees are good for woods and long irons it is a different picture with chipping and pitching.
Things even out. At least the golfers get to play.
Best part is the social aspect and betting for a few lottery tickets and a jug after the game.

Why not try fairway mats? Chipping is better than off a tee.

Tees are less expensive and everybody already has them?
