Not usually, you can sometimes get "retrograde" symptoms that go up the forearm from the wrist from CTS.

This ulnar nerve passes through the elbow joint and can give you symptoms at the elbow and DOWN the forearm into the hand(4th and 5th fingers) where as CTS effects the first 2-3 fingers typically.

What is the difference between golfers elbow and tennis elbow?

Tennis elbow and Golfer's elbow are two types of sore elbow. The prominent knuckles (epicondyles) on either side of the elbow joint provide attachment to groups of forearm muscles. Due to the concentration of muscular attachments in a small area, these epicondyles are victimized by a constant pull from the muscles. Certain activities like tennis, golf, household work, and so on, lead to inflammation of these epicondyles causing sore elbow. Inflammation of the epicondyle on the outer side of the elbow (lateral) is called tennis elbow. Inflammation of the epicondyle on the inner side of the elbow (medial) is called golfer's elbow. Though, tennis and golf predispose people to these diseases, it is not a rule. Infact many people who dont play these games and lead a sedentary life may also get these diseases.
