A player is allowed to tee off within 2 club lengths behind the Tee markers but not outside. However a player can stand outside the markers to Tee off but the ball must be inside the markers
The only thing that has to be level with or behind the tee markers is the ball. You can have one foot in front of the tee marker if you want.
only two clubs length behind the tee markers
You are allowed to tee the ball within two clubs lengths, behind the tee markers.
There are a number of different tee markers because each one indicates which group should tee off from where, and for what purpose. Examples * Competition tees * General play tees * Ladies tees * Senior tees * Juniour tees
Yes. The ball has to between the markers and up to two club lengths behind. The player can stand anywhere.
Two.From the Rules of Golf, Section II, Definitions.The "teeing ground" is the starting place for the hole to be played. It is a rectangular area two club-lengths in depth, the front and the sides of which are defined by the outside limits of two tee-markers. A ball is outside the teeing ground when all of it lies outside the teeing ground.
The teeing ground is the area that the BALL is to be teed and is defined as the space even with and between the tee markers, to a distance of two club lengths behind the markers; your feet can be outside of this 'box'. I've never seen in the rules as to exactly where the 'front' of the box is, but 'courtesy' would suggest it's to the center of the tee marker [as opposed to the leading-edge of the marker]. I've also never seen which club shall be used to measure the two club lengths behind the markers...courtesy again would suggest, whatever club you are intending to tee off with! And finally, having worked on a course, and been trained by one of the best superintendents in the industry, tee markers should be placed six paces apart (that's six steps, not twelve steps!); therefore, about 14-16 feet apart...not the entire width of the tee box like you see on most 'cheap' courses! Someone who knows how to set-up the course, understands the value of this seemingly 'narrow' distance between the markers, and how much control they can have over the golfers!
As in Can you move the tee markers? No. They have to be left where they are. The only thing you can do is going backwards, take 2 club lengths from the front of the tee markers, and you can tee up anywhere within this 2 club area.
