I went to check out a course locally that I have not been to in a long time and was looking at the score card. In particular, comparing the handicap/slope at the different tee locations. The most forward tee has overall length of 4941 yards, 70.5/125 compared to the middle tee 6035 yards 69.6/125. What I find interesting is that the shorter tees, have a higher course handicap yet the pars for each individual holes are the same. That would indicate to me that the forward tees are more difficult than the middle unless they are taking into consideration the gender/age of the players from those tees. Am I mistaken?
The back tee (Blue) are 6537 71.7/133 if you are curious.
