Each disc golf hole begins from a tee. Some courses have natural tees, some courses have mats made of reprocessed tires, but the accepted norm is a textured slab of concrete.
Natural TeesNatural tees are the easiest to install, and cost the least, but with a lot of use, they can become rutted. Rain will also make natural tees muddy, and slippery. Natural tees work best in dry climates and sandy soils. Areas that receive a lot of rain or have loose soil may want to consider an alternate tee surface.
Rubber TeesMany disc golfers like the sure footing that rubber mats provide. Some preparation of the ground is necessary to produce a flat, safe surface. The mat is spiked down at each corner and once more at the center of each side.
