Wood golf tees have a tendency to break, which causes two problems. First, you have to carry a bunch to last you a full round, and, second, broken wood tees accumulate on golf courses which can be unsightly and even environmentally problematic. The Ark Golf Professional Bamboo tees address both those issues. The Ark Golf Bamboo tees are made from is both stronger than normal wood tees, so they won’t break as often. They’re also biodegradable, so when they do snap, they’ll break down in short order and not cause any ecological damage.
The Ark Golf™ Bamboo Tees is harvested from bamboo which is a renewable resource that’s ready for harvest in only 4 years compared to a typical hardwood tree maturation of 40 years. The natural starches in bamboo help it decompose quickly.
