I'm trying to determine what tees I should play from and when. If the weather is not optimal, do you move up? What is considered too close?
Before I started this thread, I did some research and there is a lot of stuff out there. Plenty of articles/threads that have good advice on if you hit your driver x yards then you can play tees in x - x range, and stuff like that. I know what tees I should play when we are in season. I was wondering more about out of season and even the etiquette involved in that.
I don't want to be viewed as a "wuss", but that the same time I am not stupid enough to try to play from tees that are way too far out for my skill level. My club has three sets of mens tees and in season I play from the middle set which plays at just under 6400 yards. The tips play from around 6800 yards and that's too far for me even in season. The first tees are just over 6000 yards. It seems though that most of the people at my club do not move up off season and in cold weather. Most of those people also do not care about their score as much as I do though either.
Is it acceptable for me to play from those tees if it's really cold out and we are not in season? Please chime in and share how you evaluate what tees you will play from.
