ASGCA and ASGCA Foundation will host a symposium on Nov. 28-29 promoting the benefits of investing in golf facilities – including adding Forward Tees – and detailing how these investments are directly linked to facility success. From Tees to Green: A Symposium on Forward Tees & Other High-ROI Ideas takes place at Pinehurst Resort (Pinehurst, North Carolina) and includes golf at Longleaf Golf & Family Club.

Longleaf is an innovative facility providing a novel approach, helping players determine where to tee off from, and featuring up to seven tees per hole. Since implementing the additional tees, Longleaf has experienced a 20 percent increase in rounds played.

The symposium includes interactive presentations from industry leaders. Breakout sessions will be specifically designed for golf course owners/managers, operations/golf professionals, and superintendents.

Topics to be covered include:

  • A presentation from the United States Golf Association, “How feedback can help the golf industry provide a better experience for golfers.”
  • Benefits of additional tees at public and private facilities
  • Ways in which investments in golf facilities are utilized to…

o Encourage more play by golfers of all ages and skill levels

o Grow the game

“The smart investment on golf facilities across North America and the increase in forward and additional tees at public and private facilities are proving to be game changers for the golf industry,” said ASGCA Foundation President Bruce Charlton, ASGCA. “This symposium is a great opportunity for golf course owners, superintendents, architects, suppliers, industry leaders and players to learn from each other, leading to greater success for these facilities.”
