The player who tees of first in a general competition is the player who has the lowest exact handicap. In more official tournaments the order is determined by tournament organisers. If a player is only hitting an iron off the tee and cannot reach the group in front they can go.

Do you have to use a golf tee every time you tee off or can you just play from the ground?

You do need to T-off and it's only when you first start. The first stroke on each hole is done from the Tee (officially, teeing ground), where the player can use a tee (a small wooden or plastic peg) to put his ball on, which makes the tee shot easier. After teeing off, a player hits the ball again from the position at which it came to rest, either from the fairway (where the grass is cut so low that most balls can be easily played) or from the rough (grass cut much longer than fairway grass, or which may be uncut) towards the putting green.

When you lose the honor when do you tee off in golf?

On the first hole of a round of golf, the player with the lowest handicap goes first, then in order of lowest to highest.

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.

My husband wants to tee off from the ladies tee box. the red tee boxes. Is this allowed?

He can if he wants to, but he could be the butt of many jokes! If it is general play, he can tee off from wherever he wants to, but if it is an official competition he has to tee off from the stipulated tee box. If he doesn't feel he hits the ball far enough he could simply hit off the forward tees, but if he really wants to hit off the ladies tees nothing can stop him.

What is a tee shot?

A tee shot in its simplest form is the first shot on every hole in a round of golf. It is where a stroke is played from the designated teeing area, as defined by two tee markers. Where the two tee markers are placed a player must tee the ball in between them and they have the option of going up to two club lengths behind them, but never in front of them. A tee does not have to be used.

Second shot from a tee box?

If you just hit a ball out of bounce from the tee box or if you don't know if you did you can call for a provisional ball. You would hit your second shot from the tee box "your provisional shot" and see if you can find the first ball. If you can't and your provisional ball is in play then you have play provisional ball and you accrue a 1 shot penalty stroke also. If you find your first shot off of the tee then you pick up your provisional ball and play your first tee shot. No penalty if you find your first tee shot and you can play it. So, the second shot from the tee box would be considered a provisional shot.

Off golf tee who goes first men or women?

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.
