The pro shop at NHGC is now offering bamboo tees as a sustainable alternative to plastic. This eco-conscious choice reflects our commitment to reducing our environmental impact and promoting responsible practices within the golfing community.
Bamboo holds remarkable qualities that make it an ideal material for golf tees. Being fast-growing, bamboo can be harvested without causing long-term damage to the environment. Its rapid growth rate ensures a constant supply of this renewable resource, making it a sustainable choice.
Bamboo is also naturally durable. Its inherent strength and resilience allow it to withstand the rigors of golfing, providing golfers with reliable tees that perform exceptionally well on the course. This durability ensures that bamboo tees can be used repeatedly, reducing the need for frequent replacements and minimising waste.
Furthermore, bamboo possesses an exceptional ability to absorb and trap high levels of CO2, making it an effective carbon sequester. By using bamboo tees, golfers can actively contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases, helping mitigate the impact of climate change.
