Let it fly with our pick of the best golf tees

There are two certainties in golf: the need for a golf ball and the need for golf tees.

Every single golfer out there needs a golf tee, it’s a fact.

But there’s more to tees than you think – much more, actually.

They actually give you an advantage when you’re playing. Only the very best golfers are confident enough to not use a tee on a tee shot, but even the elites choose to do so because of how useful they can be.

They eliminate your club’s contact with the ground which decreases room for mistakes. Less mistakes made equals better performance, which means more strokes saved. You get the picture.

There are two main types of tees in golf: wooden tees and plastic tees. Most pros tend to use wooden ones; they are more eco-friendly and believe it or not their strength can outweigh that of a plastic tee.

On the other hand, plastic tees are much more flexible than their wooden counterparts; it’s almost impossible to break one as they bend rather than break.

Bamboo and rubber tees are also a thing, with similar properties to wooden and plastic ones.

We’ve rounded up what we think are the best golf tees that are a must-have if you’re the kind of person who buys them without thinking first. And what’s even better is they’re all available online, so you don’t have to venture out to pick them up.
