I enjoy the game most at around 6400 yards, since I can generally use most of my clubs at that yardage. I usually play at around 6000 yards, since that's what my usual group does. This works out to white tees usually, and blue tees when I'm by myself, or with another group that plays from the blues.
I only play from the back tees when I have to, like in a tournament. Otherwise, it's generally an exercise in frustration.
Pretty much spot on what I do. I try and play between 6000 to 6500 yards which normally runs with the equivilent of the whites but sometimes the blues depending on course length and local tee color. At my home course, it actually is the green tees (Red/White/Green/Blue/Black) which provides a 6521 yard experience compared to the whites at 5900 yards. They used to be red/yellow/white/blue/gold but changed recently as too many of the "seasoned" citizens refused to play the yellow tees and were slowing up play. By staying at a distance based tee box selection process, I have played anywhere from the 2nd set of tees to the fourth set of tees.
