Playing From the Wrong Tees?

We were playing Lahinch about 7-8 years ago. We were about third in line to play. A group was on the tee and the tips tee box was right in the middle of the first tee and the one everyone should play was a little forward. The group on the tee went to the tips tee box and the first two players hit horrendous shots. The starter walked onto the tee and instructed the players to go to the forward tee and to play that tee box throughout the round or they would be asked to leave the course. They still held up everyone anyway and the rangers made them skip a hole at one point.

How embarrassing for them!  I like the idea of the starter asking to see your GHIN handicap card if he sees you strutting toward the very back tees.

By measure of handicap I'm probably playing the wrong tees according to many.

Using a handicap index to determine tees is kinda dumb. It's about how far you hit the ball, primarily, IMO. (I haven't workshopped that much, so I might walk back "primarily," but for now I'm going with it.)
