Bamboo Clothing and Accessories Retailer, Cariloha, Introduces Durable Bamboo Golf Tees

Bamboo Golf Tees by Cariloha

Cariloha’s bamboo golf tees are proven to be at least three times stronger than hardwood golf tees and hold up even longer as a result.

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH – Everyday golf tees are purchased, used, recycled, and discarded almost as quickly as they’re struck off the tee box. Prolonging the poor golf tees’ life, saving the golfer money, and speeding up the time it takes to find a new tee is all made possible thanks to bamboo, which is the material of choice for Cariloha’s entire product line. Cariloha introduced these new, sturdy bamboo tees to its Cariloha stores and customers worldwide only weeks ago.

Bamboo golf tees retain their natural strength and flexibility from the day they are harvested to the time of use. Bamboo fibers run vertically from cup to tip, making bamboo tees stronger and more durable when struck, offering golfers greater consistency and reliability. For your reference, the top of the tee (the part that holds the golf ball) is called the cup and the pointy end is called the tip.

Testing the raw bamboo material and the finished bamboo product has shown that, on average, one bamboo tee lasts at least three times longer than one made from hardwood. Without providing any hard scientific evidence to back up that claim, Cariloha invites any golfer to put the bamboo tee to the test. Matter of fact, Cariloha President and CEO, Jeff Pedersen, recently went golfing with his brother to whom he gave a bag of Cariloha bamboo golf tees. After golfing 18 holes, his brother held up his bamboo tee and said, “I can’t believe it; I’ve been using this same tee all day – you could just sell one tee in a bag and offer a money-back guarantee if you break it.”

For any golfer out there, you need to ask yourself how many tees you usually break during 18 holes of golf. Then, divide that number by three, and then divide the result by 50. For example, let’s say you usually break 6 tees. Since bamboo tees are three times stronger, you’d only break 2 tees (6 divided by 3 = 2). At two tees per round, you’d be able to golf 25 times before you needed new tees (50 divided into 2 = 25), as opposed to 8 times (50 divided by 6 = 8.3).

Now that’s tough. So tough in fact that you may start shooting out cheesy lines like…
• Tougher than the Teetons! Built to last, built for strength.
• Tougher than a Tornado! Blasts you down the fairway just as far.

“Hard bamboo has been used to make bridges,” said Aaron Hobson, Cariloha executive VP of Marketing. “If it can hold up a car, it can hold up to your drive. As a golfer, you may be looking for any little thing that can change your game. Adding a natural element like bamboo to your game could be the edge you need. For those of you who don’t golf, you at least know someone who does, which makes these tees a really cool gift idea.”

Each bag comes with 50 bamboo tees, and they retail in Cariloha stores for $6.00 per bag.
