We have had the pleasure of using the Tee Caddy to review for Golfhacker. A nifty piece of kit. Before we tell you what we think of the product, check out the YouTube video of the Tee Caddy. I'm sure you'll agree...it's pretty cool.
Golfhacker went to Old Padeswood Golf Club to try out the new TeeCaddy. But what exactly is the TeeCaddy? Well it is designed to be a one stop tool that can actually save you money on lost tees. This is more than a pitchfork repairer and ball marker that's for sure.
Ever hit that amazing drive, tee flying in the air and thought...wow? Then desperately searched for you now lucky tee? Well the TeeCaddy can help with that. Using the drawstring on the caddy, simply place your tee in the rubber hole, put the TeeCaddy in the ground using the pitchfork and then tee up. Once you hit the ball from the tee the drawstring will bring your tee back to the Caddy. It is as easy as pie and more importantly...no lost tee, meaning no endless search to try and find it.
Simple and effective...although this only really works for the big shots of woods and driver. There isn't really much point using it with a short iron off the tee. However, I was massively impressed as I saw the tee fly back to the Caddy.
We all have a pitchfork repairer (or at least...we should). They cost a couple of quid, some even include a ball marker and are a bit more expensive. I, myself have loads that have been bought at tournaments I've been to. The TeeCaddy's pitchfork is slightly different to others. It is a lot sharper than most. This makes a more effective green repairer is also great for removing dry mud from the grooves of your irons in order to generate more spin on the green.
The ball marker is smaller is smaller than others I have and i did struggle to remove it from the the Caddy. That was until my golfing buddy pressed the top of the marker and it removed with ease. Not a design flaw...just me being and idiot. Thanks for that Kev...you are the man.
The drawstring can also be used as a tool to help with shot alignment although i have not tried that feature yet, but i will be doing so next time I go to the range. However, it must be stressed that under R&A rules this feature and the Tee retriever can not be used in competition. This is the only real negative I can think of to an impressive product.
Whilst on the course the TeeCaddy did everything it said it would. I even noticed an improvement in my tee shots as I could keep my tee height the same throughout my round.
This is a wonderful little product which at £9.99 is not too much more than a regular Pitchfork repairer and ball marker. There are even varied ball marker designs available. You can if you wish, have you own club logo on it but you will need to consult the website and order a minimum of 5. One thing is for certain, this will make an excellent present either for yourself, society, club or other golfing fanatics.
The TeeCaddy is available www.teecaddygolf.com priced at £9.99.
