Explanation:
Standard abbreviation, so you could leave it as it is.
The colours refer to different courses or, more probably, to different tee positions.

agree  Robert Kleemaier: likely that the 2nd set of colours refers to the junior tee boxes

agree  Cilian O'Tuama: colours just refer to the different markers on the tees and can be translated literally. Abschlagbox should be posted as a separate Q.
