Longleaf Tee Initiative: Increasing Golfer Enjoyment and Course Playability For All Ages and Skillsets

The Longleaf Tee Initiative is designed to increase golfer enjoyment and course playability for all ages and skillsets by strategically expanding existing tee complexes, which increases rounds and improves pace of play and the facility's bottom line.

Presented on behalf of the American Society of Golf Course Architects Association Foundation by Forrest Richardson, ASGCA and ASGCA Foundation Program Coordinator Peter Kaufmann, the webinar will cover:

  • What is the Longleaf Tee System?
  • What is the Longleaf Tee Initiative?
  • What are the costs of implementing the system?
  • What is the estimated ROI?

We encourage you to join the presentation, learn about the Longleaf Tee System, and have your questions answered.

Members and sponsors of the California Golf Course Owners Association, NGCOA Arizona and the Nevada Golf Course Owners Association may attend for free.  Non-members are welcome to join the webinar as well, for $25 per person.
