THE LONGLEAF TEE SYSTEM
Our newest initiative is the creation and promotion of the Longleaf Tee System — a unique and important data-based method to scale golf courses, making them more fair and more fun for every player.
U.S. Kids Golf Foundation has partnered with the American Society of Golf Course Architects Foundation to present this idea to the golf industry. U.S Kids Golf President, Dan Van Horn and famed course designer Rees Jones recently joined the set of Golf Channel’s "Morning Drive" to discuss the Longleaf Tee System and its importance to growing the game.
