What Is A Golf Tee?

by Joseph Hardison / September 16, 2021

A golf tee is a small device used to prop up the ball during your first shot on every hole. It's typically made from wood and has been around since before 1900, when it was patented by one J G Spilsbury, a British inventor in London for his company named "The Kingdoctors".

The design of these things hasn't changed much over time; however they have gone through different processes like forming or cutting them depending upon their material usage- usually plastic now though because its more durable against wear than metal could ever hope to be.

The golf tee is typically a thin, wood or plastic peg that sits two to three inches off of the ground. The ball rests on top and must stay there during your round so it does not roll away into rough territory.

How A Golf Tee Is Used?
