Are Bamboo Golf Tees better than Plastic Golf Tees?

Should I use plastic golf tees? Should I use wooden golf tees? Why are bamboo golf tees the best?

There are many different golf tees in the game of golf. Different height golf tees, different styles from castle golf tees to some golf tees that claim they can fix your driver slice.

But one of the main considerations to think about when choosing the perfect golf tee for you is the material of the golf tee.

Biodegradable bamboo golf tees

In the modern game of golf, you have 3 options. Wooden golf tees, plastic golf tees, and bamboo golf tees.

When the game of golf first started out, golfers used to gather lumps of mud to create a natural golf tee that they could perch their golf ball on. Luckily, we're way past that. And that's where the wooden golf tee was invented in 1889.

But 1889 was a long time ago, and the world of golf tees has moved on. And that's why the plastic golf tee came to be.

Are plastic golf tees bad for the environment?

The rise of plastic in the consumer market has been staggering, and as it is well documented, we're paying the price for it now. Yes, plastic is strong, but it is also harmful to the environment. Which means that plastic golf tees are bad for the environment. It's harmful for the environment to manufacture and it's expensive to recycle and reuse.

It is probably fair to say that plastic golf tees are likely the strongest option as a golf tee, but they are incredibly wasteful and harmful to the environment. And if unbreakable golf tees is your game, then maybe look into metal golf tees. Or our 32mm blue golf tee. They're so short and stubby, seriously they're golf tees that never break. The difference is, when you lose a plastic golf tee on the golf course it can take up to 1000 years to break down.

Bamboo golf tees can completely break down in as little as 4 months.

But out on the golf course the reality is that it's very easy to lose a golf tee once it's been hit. They're unpredictable in their flight path, and it is impossible to think that you won't be leaving golf tees behind in bushes and on tee boxes. And for that very reason, plastic golf tees are not the best golf tee to use. Bamboo golf tees are the best tees to use.

Recently, the game of golf and golf clubs up and down the country have been making a conscious effort to be more eco-conscious and environmentally friendly. It makes perfect sense, right? For a sport that relies so heavily on the environment, it would be wise to protect it.

Which is why the massive shift away from plastic golf tees to bamboo golf tees is happening.

A lot of people confuse bamboo golf tees for wooden golf tees.

The assumption is very wrong. So, what is the difference between wooden golf tees and bamboo golf tees? Well, for starters, bamboo is not wood. Bamboo is a plant. A plant that is 4 times stronger than wood. There is a reason they use bamboo as scaffolding poles in China. And there is a reason we think bamboo is golf tees are the best. Bamboo golf tees are incredibly strong and incredibly sustainable.

Being completely honest, no, they're probably not quite as strong as plastic golf tees. But they come dangerously close. But when you lose a bamboo golf tee off the tee box, you know that it's not causing the environment any harm. Our bamboo golf tees are 100% biodegradable. They are sustainable golf tees. They're eco-friendly golf tees.

Bamboo golf tees are the best golf tees.

We have also made sure that our golf tees are easy to find by coating them in incredibly vibrant water-based paint. The water-based paint has no harm on the environment, and it makes it a hell of a lot easier to spot your golf tee on the tee box. The easier you can find your golf tee, the less golf tees you'll use. Saving you money in the long run.

So, whether you a golf beginner, or you've been playing the game for a while, make the switch to biodegradable bamboo golf tees and help us bring death to plastic golf tees. And we can help make that even easier for you with a monthly golf tee subscription box.
