The LONGLEAF SYSTEM
In its current form, golf is struggling to grow. Most courses are simply too hard and unwelcoming for those who aren’t the more highly skilled players. The holes are too long, the pressure to play at a proper pace is too great, and the emphasis on scoring lower can be too formidable. Without creating multiple types of golf courses specifically designed for every kind of player, the game caters to a limited market. But what if there was a way to recreate that same expectation for every type of player? A way for each golfer to share the same golf experience, play at comparable speeds and feel welcome and appreciated?
Well look no further because that is what we have created at Ringway and a reason why we are the club for all, a true family club for all ages and abilities providing a challenge in a comfortable environment.
The Longleaf Tee System is a joint initiative of the American Society of Golf Course Architects Foundation and the U.S. Kids Golf Foundation. Their mission is to offer golf course owners and operators a practical, affordable way to scale their course in a manner that will enable more players to enjoy playing golf while keeping the design, integrity and challenge of the layout intact.
We have a separate Par 3 Academy course used for the Operation 36 training and challenges. In addition we have 2 short courses, integral to our main golf course, based upon the Longleaf Principles. An 18 hole Orange course measuring 3794 yards and an even shorter 9 hole Green course at just 1643 yards. These courses can be used for members to obtain their handicaps and also used in qualifying competitions.
These 2 short courses are in additon to our 4 other courses giving members plenty of challenge to match their stage of development and ability.
