Anyone happen to chance upon this tee before? I only have one piece and would like to acquire some spares before the inevitable happens. Checked all pro-shops that I come across and no luck. Likewise for online shops. TIA.

My advice? Go for wood.

Something about plastic tees that irk me is that they take 500 years to rot. Now don't mistake me as a tree-hugger. But I don't really like the idea of:
- Tee off!
- *whack*
- Where's my tee? Oh half of it is embedded in the ground, the other half is 1m away
- Pick the other half, walk off

I personally opt for wooden tees only.

thanks for the inputs, will certainly check out far east when i have the chance. Seldom go there for my golfing needs as I always imagine that place to be for expats and foreigners with their pricing to match.

As for the preference for this, not sure if it just me. But I like to tilt the ball a little backwards when I tee. Most of the plastic/wooden tees that I use don't really allow me to do so. Not sure what kind of effects it has on the ball or the drive. Its just personal preference I guess.

I did not know whether this tee is new in market. A American friend gave me a piece and it work fine. You need to tee the ball toward the target. I think this is the only type of tee you can do that. This is call "Martini tees"

I am using this type of tee now. I think it is call " 3 yards more" or "4 yards more" tee. I do not know whether it is available in Singapore. I recommend this tee ...

U got a point there re. plastic tees not being bio-degradeable ... on the other hand one plastic tee can last many rounds of golf (esp buying the better n generally more expensive ones where u will definitely try not to lose vs the many wooden tees easily broken and the need to chop down more trees to make more wooden tees ....
