Rule 4: Striking the Ball at the Teeing Ground
Rule 4.1 Teeing Ground
For recreational golf rounds, players can choose whatever teeing ground they want. Of course, when competing with others players should choose the same teeing ground for each hole.
However, since this is recreational golf, players competing against each other can decide among themselves which teeing ground each player should use. For example, the women in a group may decide to use the shortest teeing ground for each hole.
Rule 4.2 Use of Tee
TeeGolf doesn't require players to use a tee any place on the golf course.
Rule 4.3 Order of Play
TeeGolf doesn't require players to drive off the tee ground in the order established on the previous hole--from least number of strokes to the most strokes. Some people like to go first and others like to wait until the others tee off. Whatever the group decides.
As a suggestion, the players who drive the ball the shortest can tee off as soon as the previous group clears the distance that the players normally drive. That way, the game can move along a little faster.
Rule 4.4 Mulligan
Most recreational golfers take Mulligans--an extra stroke when they hit a bad shot. In USGA and R&A rules, you would have to count the extra stroke. In TeeGolf the Mulligan stroke doesn't count against the final score. Ultimately this makes the game easier since most of the time the second shot is better. Not always, but most of the time.
You are allowed 3 Mulligans on each 9-hole round. On your scorecard circle the score on each hole that you use a Mulligan so you can keep track of the number of Mulligans taken. In competition, you will need to know how many Mulligans were taken in case of a tie.
You can take a Mulligan at any point in each hole. Most Mulligans are taken on the tee ground. However, you can take a Mulligan from the fairway, rough, sand trap, or even on the green.
Only one Mulligan may be taken on any given hole.
