GOLF 2.0

What is Golf 2.0?

The PGA of America has implemented the “Golf 2.0” Program to make the game of golf easier, less time consuming more fun for beginners of all ages.

Tee it Forward

In an effort to make the game more approachable and easier for beginners or less experienced players, Shanty Creek has added 15″ cups to each hole on Summit Golf Course in addition to its traditional 4 1/4"e; cups.

Spearheaded by Jack Nicklaus, Tee it Forward is an initiative which urges golfers to restore fun, particularly with women and junior players by asking bogey golfers to “tee it forward” to the next forward set of tees. This initiative is designed to make the game of golf more playable and increase the amount of players taking up the game. Shanty Creek has implemented this program by adding an extra set of forward tees at Summit GC. These forward tees range from 95 yards to 125 yards out from the green, making the game easier and quicker for all players involved.

  • Identify ways that you can pick up the pace
  • Give Tee it Forward a try
  • Practice “ready golf” during stroke play
  • Serve as an example for those around you
  • Embrace opportunities to play nine holes
  • Play more quickly, play better and have more fun!
