Pride Golf Prolength 2 3/4" Tees

Pros: Cheap, abundant, durable, biodegradable

Cons: Break slightly more often than plastic tees

I've been using Pride Golf's Prolength tees exclusively for several years now, and I don't intend to change any time soon. For just a few dollars, you get a seemingly endless bad of tees.

By not using them on par-threes (I pick up an already-broken tee from the ground), I seldom break these, which effectively makes them last as long as any other tee. Not only do they rarely break, but unlike plastic tees they also don't bend, which means that even when the ground has frozen in the autumn, you can still get the tee in the ground.

Though their slim design makes them slightly easier to lose than, say, a Brush Tee, you get so many of these tees in a bag that simply does not matter.

Pros: Colored height gauge bar is very useful

Since trying these tees, I really like the idea of having a colored bar on the tee to help gauge how far to push the tee down when teeing the ball. You can learn to get it right most of the time through habit, but I don't estimate those things well and I'm kind of picky about getting the exact right height. Little things like the length of the grass (or lack thereof) on the teebox and even the slope can throw of your visual assessment of the tee's height on your initial placement. Readjusting after you've placed it is a bit annoying (and looks a little dorky too b2_tongue.gif ). I think if I'm going to tee the ball up with a variable-length tee, there should be some sort of marker to let me know about what height the tee is at.

The color bar at the bottom address that and helps me pick the exact height I want every shot, so I almost never get the initial tee height wrong.

The colored bar's height (er, width?) and position are well-chosen and such that you will probably compare the top edge of the bar to the ground when making your alignment and you are unlikely to want to tee the ball low enough to totally obscure the bar by much, so you should always have it as a gauge. For me, I tee the ball on the lower side, so I usually want to see a small hint of color above the ground to know I have the right height. If I'm teeing it even lower than normal, I just barely hide the top edge of the bar in the ground.

These are available in both wood/brown and white color. The colored stripe is yellow on both.

Just a thought: I haven't used the brown/wood colored ones, but in the store it looked like the yellow bar might have poor contrast against the wood look, making viewing the last sliver of color through the grass a tad difficult. Not sure if it actually will, though, but I'd have thought they'd pick something with better contrast. Maybe they didn't want to ruin the "natural" look of the wooden tees.
