During the period where the redesign of the Gunnamatta course has been taking place, there have been limited opportunities for competition play from the back tees (Black for men and Red for women). Commencing 13 February, a trial will occur on Wednesdays (members only course) at Cape Schanck, where players will be able to choose which tee they compete from:
- Men may play from Red, Blue or Black tees,
- Women may play from Green or Red tees (possibly Blue tees in the future).
The handicap allocation will be different on each course to account for the adjustment in course difficulty. When registering for this Wednesday members only competition, those taking part will be prompted on the booking terminals to specify which tee they wish to play off. On other occasions throughout the week, it is possible there will also be some variation in the location of the tee markers. Not only does this add interest and variety but it will also help spread the wear and tear on the tees and the landing areas.
