City of Derry Golf Club has launched its new child/beginner friendly tees on its 9 hole course.

The new tees which have been kindly sponsored by PakFlatt is the first of its kind in the North of Ireland and they are designed to offer a fairer test for golfers of all abilities.

There are three sets of tees on the par 4’s and two on the par 3’s, you select which tee’s you play from based on how far you hit the longest club in your bag.

If you hit your longest club less than 100 yards you play from the reds, 100 - 150 yards the green markers and over 150 yards the blues.

Head Professional Sam Smallwoods believes that the new tees go hand in hand with what he and the club are trying to achieve and that is get more kids, beginners and ladies playing the game more frequently.
