Next tee to previous green
« on: September 16, 2022, 03:51:15 PM »
As time goes bye the walk from a green back, seemingly always back, to the next tee appears to get ever longer.

Seems like some of the walks back are now so lengthy that they could even be played as short par-3ís.
Eg back tee of the 17th at TOC over the wall to the 16th green.
Other examples?

Wait til everyone sees the long walk from 12 green to the new 13th tee at Augusta.

Are you including walk backs to holes playing in the opposite direction as well as ones going in the same direction?


Do you differentiate? Which do you dislike more?

Doesn't  that depend on the tees that you are playing?  The examples of ANGC #13 or TOC #17 are only for the tour pros.  For us mere mortals there is no walk back - like the close proximity of ANGC 12 green to 13 members tee.

For discussion purposes any tee where you have to walk back to play the next hole.
The ANGC 13th-12th example posted by Tommy above would be a cracking hole either as a wee dog or with some trees removed.

For some reason, I tend to dislike walk backs more so on holes playing directly back in the same direction that you just came. Partly itís because I feel that side by side holes are not taking you to a new part of the property and in themselves arenít moving the journey on. So the walk back just compounds that.

You know me David, I am usually quite happy to play the tee closest to the previous green unless there is a compelling reason not to do so. I don't consider putting daily cards in for handicap purposes compelling. I play few comps so that is a rarely compelling reason. I am not too fussed about the "view" so that is not often a compelling reason. Sometimes there is a more interesting tee which makes the hole better. I can go along with a bit of a walk a few times a round for this reason. Unfortunately, the overwhelming reason for walks is to add yards rather than interest.

I - and we - have said it a million times but on a 4 tee course, I try and put the middle two sets as close to the previous green as possible. Often the land dictates that this canít - or even shouldnít - be done but itís a starting goal.


Funnily enough, at Strandhill Iím in the process of removing the third tees closest to the second green because they are so unsafe that groups have to wait for the following group to play from the 2nd tee (par-3) before stepping back on to the third. I can either walk back to the 400 yard tees or create a bland hole from 265 yards. Given Strandhillís overall lack of length, I choose the former.
