The Perfect Senior Bag Setup

Some courses just number them 1,2,3, and 4, much simpler. Some courses have ridiculously long lengths from the forward tees, get real. 

I hope the "get real" comment is directed at the courses not me.

 

I support that our local Vancouver munis (3 courses) have brought in one more forward set of tees and gone to the numbers, (1, 2, 3, and combos 2/3 etc.)  to perhaps remove some of that "red  tee stigma". For the  new rated Combo tees, they have not been promoted well by the courses or put on scorecards though. So the average John Q Public player has no idea they exist even though the courses want to improve pace of play and enjoyment. 

Even those in our regular seniors group  sometimes refer to the tees still by the old color to reflect tee position.  Certainly from habit, but perhaps partly for clarity (especially when referring to Combo tees) because one of the courses in our rota has an extra back tees so the old white is now "3" there, "2" on the other courses.

 

The geniuses that designed the new tee markers also made the tee number only visible from one side facing the green; the numbers are visible only once you get near the tee box and can see  them facing you. If we rotate them to make it easier for following groups coming from the preceding green, it's lost on the greenskeeper who just puts them back to the facing- green position next visit.

 

Another local course switched the blue to front and red to the back to presumably reflect the shift from red tee stigma.

Turning 66 this November as I feel that I have the perfect senior bag set up.....see sig below. Still play from the white Tee's as I like to use all of my clubs if possible. I played once from the senior Tee's at one course which I think is fairly tough from the white Tee and from the senior Tee 6 iron and 8 iron into the green on a par 5. Missed my eagle but birdied and did shoot 2 under that day.  I just like the challenge as I play to have fun so if I can keep it under 80 I'm very happy which I normally do. I'm sure the courses I play on are not as difficult as what others play on but I seldom will play the same course twice in a row.

^^^^Great you have found a club mix that works for you (me too and I’m not looking to replace any club. Though I have some other spare  wedges  I can swap in if I want later to experiment to course conditions.)

 

It sounds  like that course you mentioned with the short tees is  a great candidate  for some form of Combo ones, though it also sounds like for you whites  are fine and you are a stronger player.  Different from you, I  and some friends find we have  a better chance playing every club with shorter tees, though admittedly  a higher percentage  of mid and shorter irons. But I’m glad to get more practice with my irons this year since I moved up half a set to a full set of tees, course dependent.
