I have heard of bio-degradable, but are there others?  Do you of any company
that actually manufacturers them- It is one of those things that no one evers
knows, like what was JFK's book..

Look forward to your response.

Simple ... Wood tees are biodegradable, plastic tees are
not ... well maybe over a few million years, but not soon.

I remember seeing a few years back a "super-biodegradable" tee.  It was some
sort of composite material (high-temperature cured buffalo chips?) that
would break down completely within 30 days.  One of the golf mags included a
couple as freebies.  They looked funny, but were otherwise pretty
unexciting.  I don't believe they ever caught on.

John,

Unfortunately, don't degrade quite as easily as most people think. The
main problem is that they are almost always either painted or coated
with a sealant of some sort. As far as I know, the paints and sealers
are not easily biodegradable, although every thing breaks down
eventually.

Some 'natural' tees are even made from pressure-treated lumber and will
not degrade for years, even if completely buried in the ground.

I would like to be able to find unpainted, uncoated, untreated wooden
tees. Those would be truly biodegradable.

Good Golf
Dan

Well being one of those obsesives who have to use their "lucky" tee I tend
to use my wooden tees until they split which certainly helps with the
biodegradeability.  I'm not sure how much time is allowed under the rules of
golf to find ones tee though:)

I purchased some bio-degradable tees from Walmart. I used them until they
were gone. There was nothing wrong with using  them, they didn't seem to
break more than the standard wooden tees.

Under the Rules of Golf, you should wave the following group through
immediately if you think your lucky tee is lost. You have five minutes
to look before declaring your lucky tee lost. Or you could simply take
out your lucky provisional and declare it in play ;-)

Which reminds me of the story of the pro golfer who got into a rage and
threw his club after a particularly bad shot. It went over the fence
OOB. His caddy turned to him and said "I think you should throw a
provisional".

Rebel Sports stores in australia sell them, and they may have stores
in US as well.   From memory they look like compressed grass cuttings,
and i think they are also quite pricey compared to common tees.

if you go to http://www.rebelsport.com.au and look in their online
catalogue you might be able to see the details of the brand and/or
manufacturer.

Fore Right!,

The unpainted wood tees I prefer are also biodegradable.  They
don't decay instantly but...
