My suggestion for creating women friendly courses is to build an 18-hole course with three "sixes" instead of two nines. Have a six-hole rate, a twelve-hole rate and an 18-hole rate. This would be wonderful for anyone who struggles to make time for golf. Just a thought!

I guess I haven't previously heard discussion about varying tees based on swing speed. I love the concept! I am a low handicap woman who usually plays from the "men's tees". I don't like the label and would love to see a golf course with a swing speed monitor on the first tee and recommendation for where to play.

Katharine,
We have a course in western New York that opened to mild fanfare about half a decade ago. Conditions were not as nice as other recent debutantes and the word on the street/fairway spread quickly. The course suffered the first two years due to this initial faux-pas. After some soul-searching and (believe it or not!) input from their competitors, they went after a niche not previously exploited in western New York: women. They are much stronger today for it.

Thanks for writing the article! This is a huge growth of the game intiative for the golf industry. The more attention that can be brought to the topic, the more opportunity for meaningul change. Thanks again!
