Installment number eight of the “Tee Week” theme here at Hooked On Golf Blog.
There are some biodegradable tees made out of corn starch. The only versions of this tee I’ve seen are long, and are a little off-white or slightly clear in color. They’re a little flexible and get more flexible the more times you use them. If you have hard ground to stick the tee into, these can bend or break too easily.
This may sound odd, but I really don’t like these tees because they aggravate my tennis/golfer’s elbow. They seem to snag the driver just enough to irritate it.
I dig the concept of biodegradable tees though as would many tree-huggers. That being said, a head course maintenance guy I know says they don’t decompose fast enough though. They end up just picking these tees up along with the wood ones anyway.
By the way
(If you’re wondering why I’m linking to my own URL here, it’s because the HOG feed has been picked up by dozens of jerks who are posting my blog posts as their own on their sites and even running google ads or other ads to make money off of them. So I’m now in the habit of linking to HOG within it’s own posts.)
