The 49-year-old club in York, Pa. became part of Ron Jaworski Golf last fall and tee-box renovations on its Edmund Ault-designed course were then undertaken over the winter. Instead of traditional colors, the tees are now labeled with Roman numerals and based on a player’s average driving distance.
Owner Ken Kochenour announced that Honey Run Golf Club in York, Pa., unveiled new tees on its Edmund Ault-designed golf course for play beginning on May 31st, the York Dispatch reported.
To lead to an improved playing experience for customers, the club has also removed traditional labels placed on its tees, the Dispatch reported, such as red tees for women, gold tees for seniors, white tees for men and blue tees for championship players.
Instead, the tees will now be labeled I to V, in Roman numerals, and will not have a specific color associated with them. The I tee will be the longest distance and the V tee will be the shortest.
The club is recommending that players use these tees, based on their average driving distance:
►I—280 yards or more.
►V—175 yards or less.
Depending on the set of tees a player chooses, Honey Run will now be both the longest and shortest golf course in York County, Pa., the Dispatch reported.
The club is using a dynamic pricing model, with 18-hole greens fees with a cart ranging from $25 to $75, depending on the day and the time, the Dispatch reported.
Honey Run, which was built in 1971, was listed for sale in 2018 (https://clubandresortbusiness.com/honey-run-gc-listed-sale/) and then became part of Ron Jaworski Golf, which now owns and operates seven daily-fee clubs in southern New Jersey and Pennsylvania, in the fall of 2019 (https://clubandresortbusiness.com/honey-run-gc-now-under-ron-jaworski-golf-umbrella/). The tee-box renovation was then undertaken over the winter.
“We place a great deal of importance on Honey Run being playable for golfers of all skill levels and ages,” Jaworski, the former National Football League quarterback and current ESPN commentator, said in a news release. “The new tee options will allow our golfers to play the course from as short as 4,500 yards to nearly 7,000 yards. So the highly skilled players and long hitters will be challenged, while less advanced players and youngsters will have options that will better fit their games.”
Honey Run GC has previously hosted Nike Tour and Futures Tour professional events, the Dispatch reported.
