The starter simply ask the handicap of the worst player in the group and told you which box they expected you to play. What we discussed that night was just like your group. We are of similar ages to your group. The best point made was that when a designer puts together the course it will have long and short par 4s and the par threes should be mixed short and long. What we finally agreed was that for as long as we have played together the longest hitters tend to score best because they hit far more short irons. We realized that the designers of the course want us to hit short irons on the designed short holes and longer irons or woods on the longer holes. We didn't want parity and we did want competitive rounds for all of us. We now look at the yardages hole by hole and you play the box where you can drive a good drive to an 8 iron or less on the short par 4s and we also look at the par 3 yardages we don't want some guys hitting a 7 iron and others hitting a 3 wood. We just mix the tee boxes based on completive yardages. We used one of the guys Arrcos at the range and figured out everyone's average stock 7 iron yardage and driver. We determined that short par 4 tee boxes should be no more than driver, 7 iron on average.
