I spoke with the guy at the course and asked if he'd set up the special "secret" tees for us that day and he said yes. They're not even on the card, but they're 7700 yards! I just have to remember to give him the password when we get there that day. (It's "masochism")
Of course, I am kidding!
And, to be fair ... it wasn't 7400, it was about 7000. Further, there was a slight misunderstanding because Erik was not given any ages, only handicaps, and set all of the under 16's to the 6800 tees (that unbeknownst to us were pushed back to 7k - actually more but we took care of it ;)) and all of the over 16's to one set forward at 6300 or something like that.
For Talega, I would recommend we play the blue tees ... which are at 6600 or so, and all people over handicap "x" (20, maybe??) play from the whites. (And, of course, all females from the reds :))
