There are a number of different tee markers because each one indicates which group should tee off from where, and for what purpose.

Examples

How far behind the tee markers can you tee your ball My partner teed off about 5 feet behind the tee markers Was that legal?

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!

What does different color of tee stand for in golf?

In golf, the teeing ground is the area at the beginning of a hole from which the player's first stroke is taken. When referring to the area, the terms "tee", "tee box", and "teeing ground" are often used interchangeably. The boundaries of the teeing ground are defined by a pair of tee markers. The front, left and right sides of the tee are denoted by the outer edges of the tee markers, assuming the perspective of a player standing in the teeing ground and facing the hole. The teeing ground is two club-lengths in depth. Most courses have at least three sets of tee markers (some may have six or more), each a different color and denoting different yardages. Some commonly used tee marker colors are below, along with a general description of who plays from what color. The tee box that a person plays from is not set by rules; in casual play, anyone can use any tee box they wish to. Note that not all courses have all colors, and some may use a completely different color scheme for their tee markers. • Black usually denotes the tee used for championship play in tournaments, and is almost always the longest yardage for each hole. • Blue (or "back") is the tee used by skilled male players who have a low handicap. • White (or "middle") is the tee used most often by men, typically those who have a middle or high handicap. • Yellow (or gold) can have two meanings: if it's behind the white tees, it's usually for championship play. If in front of the white tee markers (but before the red tee markers), it typically denotes where senior men hit from. • Red (or "forward") is the tee that women usually hit from, and usually offers the shortest yardage on many courses. • Green tee markers often have shorter yardage even than the red tee markers, and usually indicate where juniors and beginners hit from. The surface of the teeing ground is generally grass, cut short to allow the least possible interference with the ball's lie, although the Rules do not specify that the teeing ground must be surfaced with grass nor the height at which it is cut.

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.


What are the proper distances to place tee markers?
