white/blue tees

Postby fairweather_fan on Fri Aug 07, 2009 8:32 am

some friends and i will be heading out to QR for a few rounds this weekend, and were wondering how (and if) the white and blue tees are marked. we don't make it out that way very often, but i seem to remember it being a bit of a challenge to find them the last time we played the course. bricks? stumps? no markers?

any help would be appreciated.

Whites are marked with white pavers in the ground. These tee pads were recently cleaned and trimmed for last weeks Quail Clobber. Most pads might still have remnants of orange spray paint. Blues will be more difficult to find. Good luck and enjoy.

thanks for the info, gflap. in re: blue tees, when you say "more difficult to find", do you mean "if you don't know where they are, don't bother looking"? we were thinking it'd be cool to run a round from each set of tees, maybe, but would rather not spend an extra 10 mins per hole in 90deg heat looking for a set of tees we may never find.

thanks again for the help, and the wishes of luck and enjoyment-i'll certainly need the former to find the latter!

If you look on the Tourney's tab under Local Tourney's, Quail Clobber, the whites/blues used in the tourney are still marked with orange spray paint. The ones not used are harder to find, but let me try to help you and everyone else.

1w - Up near the tree near the road, to the right and behind the reds.
1b - About 50-60' behind the reds, slightly to the left of the reds (the trash can gets in the way sometimes if you throw like me)

2w - I'm not sure if these were removed, but still marked orange. approx. 10' right of the reds, 40' behind.
2b - When you cross the road from hole 1, look near the sign in the grass on your right. Easy to find.

3w - walk past the reds, to the right down a dirt path in the woods. Should be marked, easy to find.
3b - As you leave hole 2 and cross the paved path, look on the right. They are near the woods. Be very careful of people riding bikes and runners on the path as you throw. A spotter would help.

4w - approx 30' behind the reds near a dirt spot, easy to find.
4b - If you are standing on the whites, look right and follow this path back around a big cedar tree. The blues are on the right side of the tree as you face the pin. Might be hard to find. The markers are close to the tree. Turtles have been known to procreate in this area. :D

5w - Directly behind the whites, easy to find.
5b - As you take the walk uphill from hole 4 to hole 5, there is a path on the left hand side. Not sure if the marker is still there, but where this path is there is a small tree at the intersetcion of the two paths that we use as a default marker. Very difficult shot from here, but it's open.

6w - directly behind the reds about 50'. Easy to find.
6b - These were removed b/c the parks dept. put in the horseshoe pits. We use the white wood on the first horseshoe pit as the marker. (Note: for all others, this is the correct location, not on the paved path)

7w - As you walk from hole 6 to 7, there is a path on the right about halfway. Go down about 40' there is a level spot and there should be white markers if they havent been covered with mud.
7b - Directly behind the whites, about 30'. If the markers are covered, the tee pad is directly behind a small tree that is laying across the path.

8w - Directly behind the reds.
8b - As you walk from hole 7 to 8, almost to hole 8, on the right side there are blue markers. Note: There is a mando on this hole. You will see it from the tee pad. If you miss, re-tee from the reds.

9w - From the reds, walk to the other side of the creek, near the parking lot by the practice hole. There is a path there and the markers are at the end of the path. It is a tight, but fun, tunnel shot.
9b - As you walk from hole 8 to 9, pass up the reds and walk about 80' and on the right there is a small area with the blue pavers. A very long tunnel shot.

10w - right next to the reds.
10b - to the right of the whites about 20' in the little grassy area. even with the reds and whites.

11w - directly behind the reds
11b - to the right of the whites, and even with them.

12w - behind the reds up a little hill (behind the bench)
12b - behind the whites. Watch for the mando, re-tee from the reds.

13w - directly behind the reds, can't miss as you walk from 12 to 13.
13b - if you are standing on the reds, it is approx. 30' behind them down on the path in the woods.

14w - approx. 40' behind and 20-30' left of the reds. 20' off the paved path.
14b - approx. 40' behind and 40' to the right of the reds. 20' off the paved path.

15w - as you walk from 14 to 15, before you make the sharp left turn to the tee pad, it's on the right on a little hill.
15b - it's in the wide open area behind hole 18's basket. Big blue markers. Can't miss from hole 14. Good luck with that shot.

16w - on your way from 15 to 16. can't miss, it's in the wide open.
16b - behind the reds up on top of the hill by a tree that was just cut down and the fence. Signature tee pad.

17w - Behind the whites, approx 40'.
17b - Walk from the red to the whites and keep going to the road. Turn right and go approx. 10-20' and you will see them. They are about 5' off the road.

18w - walk up the cut path from the reds, turn slightly right and you will see them.
18b - As you walk up the cut path, head towards a cross walk sign that's near the road. As you make your way up there, you will see the blues. Can be tricky to find, but it's about 15' off the paved path where it turns.

As for the one's still marked with orange paint, they are a great mixture to play. I play the whites and blues a lot. The whites are harder than the red, but the blues are signifigantly harder.

If you play the tee's marked orange from the tourney, i'd probably add in the blues from holes 16 - 18 if you like longer shots.

If you can't find one, find someone who has a bag. They probably know where they are. The signs do a decent job showing the locations of the tees, but the distances could be greatly off (example: hole 8), and not all of the blues are on the signs, yet.

I hope this helps. Maybe with some free time a map could be created.

Eric, guess we were typing it at the same time. Either one works great.

thanks for taking the time to post the directions to the tee placements, jorge and listen4chains. much appreciated!

so, are the tees that are still spray painted from the tournament a mix of red, white, and blue tees?

looking forward to playing the course.

Reds all have pads. Most of the whites are spray painted with the blues on 9, 10, 16, and another hole I'm forgetting spray painted as well.

just wanted to pop back in and say thanks again for the directions to the white and blue tees...we had planned on going a couple rounds, but got a later start than we anticipated, so we just ran a round from the whites. we were able to find all whites except for hole #2, and they definitely gave the course additional challenge, and some different looks/shots off the tee when compared to the reds (which are the only tees we had played in the past).

so, thanks again!
