Normally when you start a round of golf you start out on the first tee. What if you have a large group of say 30 golfers or so, and you all want to start play at the same time. Players spread out on the golf course, and everyone starts play at a different hole. In order for all to start at the same time you will listen for the start signal.

Men tee it up from the white tees and women from the red tees When you have finished your round, please turn in the team scorecard to the scoring table.
