New Golf Tee

10 posts in this topic

I am currently designing a new golf tee that will be more stable and prevent tip overs while teeing off. Also, the tee will be user friendly as we are designing it so that the ball is less likely to fall off the tee. We are trying to justify the this problem, so if anyone could take this survey  it would be greatly appreciated.

I'd link to the URL, but it's against the policy of this site that I take advantage of the concentration of golfers while contributing nothing.

I didn't know there were current issues with golf balls falling off of tees now?

I've never had a problem w/ the Wal-Mart tee's that are $3.99 for a bag of 200. I do want to try the brush tee and maybe see how that works.

Some of the tallest plastic tees have only 3 apex points upon which sits our noble ball. If the tee is  tilted or off center slightly the ball is unstable and i have seen a few drop off such a  tee.  I prefer non-plastic tees and if i could figure out how to make a bamboo golf tee easily and cheaply i would be marketing that here in Asia. If you consider for a moment traditional wooden tees and how they might be made i believe the maker starts with a rectangular block of wood and carves away the excess. You can see that perhaps half the wood is actually wasted in the carving.  Each tee, one by one. What a chore.

There are plenty of bamboo tees available out there.....

Probably not going to get any love from the environmental types, but I love the stepped blue and yellow tees.just push into the ground and it tees up the same hight every time.

I have never used those tee's but I do like the idea of consistency when teeing up your ball. I pretty much tee mine the same but I know its not exact every time but I would like to try these tees.

In 40 years, I don't think I've ever had a ball "fall off" of a tee.....

There my favorite type. I tried a long white type today, it looked like it had about 4 or 5 tiny knobs on it, it was fine but I needed to mark it to get the same height every time

Those are the ones i normally use. Long white tees that aren't the best shape but they work for me. Like you said i need to mark them to tee the same height every time though.

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
