New forward tees have been added to the Oglebay Jones and Palmer Courses.
It's all part of a national initiative called ''Tee It Forward .''
Oglebay Park officials said these new green tees are placed in a friendly, shorter yardage area to allow families and others to have an enjoyable golfing experience on the two championship courses.
"The forward tees level the playing field and give golfers the opportunity to play from distances that are properly aligned with their abilities," said Rico Coville. "Playing from forward tees should result in fewer overall shots, shorter distance traveled on each hole, and potentially, fewer lost balls."
