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.
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.
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 4,000 sq ft warehouse and still can’t keep them in stock. They’re the real deal.
What happened to online ordering?
--We have permanently closed our online ordering due to significant increases is orders from wholesale customers and social distancing practices we have put in place as a result of the pandemic.
Do you offer discounts or donations for events?
--We do! Please contact us at [email protected] if you are having an event and we will be happy to work with you!
What’s the Martini Twist?
--Our name for tilting the tee toward the pin about 20 degrees. 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.
I love Martini Tees but they keep flying off and I hold up my whole foursome looking for them.
--Try our new 2¾ 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
