Generally, on the first tee, if everyone is playing from the same tees, order can be determined by flipping a tee in the air and seeing who it points to. Gender isn't really a factor unless you are simply being a gentleman and allowing the lady or ladies to hit first. After playing the first hole, you would simply follow the 'honor' system where the teeing order is determined by scores on the previous hole. Lowest score hits first, high hits last.

However, if the woman or women are in fact playing from the women's tees, the men generally tee off first. This is not gender bias but simply in the interest of faster play and safety. Since the women's tees are further up it makes sense for the men to play first since you pass their teeing area first. Furthermore, if a woman were to tee off first she would be ahead of the men's tees when they began teeing off and risk being hit by a ball.

On the first hole of a round of golf, the player with the lowest handicap goes first, then in order of lowest to highest. Unless you are playing in a competition where a draw has been made and the players have been told which order they tee off in. On subsequent holes, the player who had the lowest score on the previous hole tees off first, unless there are two or three players tied on the same score from the previous hole, in which case the hole before that is used to break the tie.
