Golf tees are necessary accessories regularly used on the greens. And yet not a lot of players really take much care when choosing which ones to place in their bag. There’s a good supply of golf tees on the market right now which will contribute to your game and compliment your golf balls and equipment, and this buying guide will show you which ones you might want to consider this season.

Using a golf tee

A golf tee is used for the first stroke of each hole and the area which the stroke is taken is known as the teeing ground or simply tee. It is against the rules of golf to use a tee anywhere else on the green other than the teeing ground, although exceptions can be made. At certain times in the season golfers might be allowed use their tee as it keeps the course in good condition during poor spells of weather.

Types of golf tee

The following section details the best golf tees available and their pros and cons when used on the golf course.

Traditional golf tees

The golf tee, in its most basic and traditional incarnation, measures around 2 ¾ inches in length and is crafted from wood. They are tough, sturdy and very resilient when placed in the ground, so it’s no great surprise that golfers are loath to abandon them in search of alternatives, such as plastic golf tees. Plastic golf tees are cheaper in price, though only marginally, and offer very little differences in performance. The choice of which works best for you needs to be a personal decision and both types are available from OnlineGolf for you to test out and enjoy.

Some of our best traditional plastic golf tees include the Masters Golf Graduated Plastic Tees, PGA Tour Performance RFT Series Tees , Brush Tee Extreme XL T, PGA Tour Lift Tee 24 Pack and Masters Golf Plastic Tees.

A selection of the best traditional wooden golf tees include the Masters Golf Wooden 70mm Tees, Masters Golf Wooden 54mm Tees and Pride Professional Tees.

Colourful golf tees

The hallmark standard of a golf tee is unquestionably white; easy to get your hands on, easy to see in poor weather conditions and a roundly considered universal colour option. These days, however, there are limitless colours, designs and customisations available for the more artistic golfers and these can range from golf tees sporting polka dots or tiger skin through to luscious colours such a chilli red and aqua green. Again this is purely a personal choice here and no colour or design is going to change anything about the golf tee. If you like to jazz up your look, these are for you.

Some of the most vibrant designs and colours can be found in the PGA Tour Castle Tees 200 Pack, Masters Golf Short Cone Tees, PGA Tour Anti Slice Tees and CHAMP Zarma FLYtee, while there’s much more option available too.
