GENERAL:

I’ve heard of these. What are they again?
--Martini® Golf Tees: The only Martini that will improve your driving! And proudly made in the USA, at a factory in Michigan.

How big are they? What are they made of?
--Four styles, three sizes. Our Original and Step-Up Tees are 3-¼ inches tall. We also make a 2-inch and 2-¾ inch versions of the Original. They’re all made from a proprietary polymer resin created by Cliff Baker, a member of the Plastics Hall of Fame.

Are they legal?
--Yes; all four types of Martini Tees have been evaluated by both the US Golf Association and the R&A and they all conform with the Rules of Golf. They’re “legal” for any tournament and for tracking your handicap.

What’s the Step-Up Tee?
--It’s just like the Original Martini Tee, only with a bump on the shaft for consistent teeing height. When inserted down to the bump the ball sits 1 ¾ inches from the ground.

Why do you say “virtually” unbreakable?
--Nothing’s perfect. You may break one after a while. They usually last 40 to 50 rounds; not holes; rounds. The verified record is 200 rounds, but we’re had unofficial reports of people playing the same tee for 300 rounds.

Does the ball really go farther when you use a Martini Tee?
--Yes; yes it does. Surprised us too. We hired an independent laboratory to test Martini tees against wooden tees. You can read more about it here. The results surprised us too.

Am I going to stripe the bottom of my driver with a Martini Tee?
--Nope. They’re safe to use with all your clubs. In fact, there’s a high-end club maker that recommends you only use Martini Tees for that very reason.You can see their clubs at: https://www.knuthgolf.com

Where did the name “Martini” come from?
--There are a lot of stories out there about how we got our name, most of them involving a ball landing in a martini glass. Truth is, we named it for the shape of the cup. “Martini” is copyrighted not only for golf tees,but also for all golf products.

Isn’t this just some kind of gimmick?
--Oh, no. Martini Tees were used by a PGA pro in the 2011 and 2012 PGA Championship. They’re used by LPGA players on the tour. We have a 6,000 sq ft warehouse and still can’t keep them in stock. They’re the real deal.

 

ORDERING:

Do you charge for shipping?
--Yep. Big companies can get away with free shipping; us little guys can’t. But we charge you only the exact US Post Office postage or UPS shipping rate; we don’t add anything for the packaging or “handling.”

What’s with this “PayPal” stuff?
--One payment option is to use your PayPal account. But you can also check out as a guest and use your credit card without a PayPal account. You may still see the name PayPal, as we have them process the credit cards for our orders.

How long will my order take?
--We try to get orders out in two or three days.

Can I just call, rather than place an order on-line?
--Ordering on-line really works best for us; it goes straight to the warehouse. However, if you want to call please understand that we’re often buried in the warehouse and unable to answer. If that happens please leave a message.

 

USING THE MARTINI TEE

What’s the Martini Twist?
--Our name for tilting the tee toward the pin about 20%. This means when you hit the ball you’re just lifting it right off the cup, and gives you as zero of friction as any tee. And yes; we’ve heard the joke about tilting your tee a half-inch forward will give you an extra half-inch. Just try it. It works a whole lot better than that.

Does the ball really go farther when you use a Martini Tee?
--Yes; yes it does. Surprised us too. We hired an independent laboratory to test Martini tees against wooden tees. You can read more about it here. The results surprised us too.

Am I going to stripe the bottom of my driver with a Martini Tee?
--Nope. They’re safe to use with all your clubs. In fact, there’s a high-end club maker that recommends you only use Martini Tees for that very reason. You can see their clubs at: https://www.knuthgolf.com

I love Martini Tees but they keep flying off and I hold up my whole foursome looking for them.
--Try our new 2-¾ inch version. We’re hearing that people are having good results keeping it in the tee box. You can also try one of the many tee tethers out there, like this one: https://www.golfteeretriever.com
