Ocean Tee calls on clubs to go plastic-free in 2020

Ocean Tee

Ocean Tee, the golf industry’s leading provider of sustainable tees, is calling on British golfers to nominate their golf club as one of 25 pioneering venues that will commit to getting plastic off the course, reduce waste, slash their carbon footprint and contribute to environmental charities by becoming part of the ‘Ocean Tee Crowd’ initiative.

The scheme aims to use the buying power of 25 clubs across the country to make a cost effective, sustainable statement by transitioning to bamboo golf tees for members and guests.

This unique, eight-week initiative pools clubs’ resources to make it simple to switch to the brand’s premium, durable and sustainable tees. This move elevates each participating club’s environmental credentials and their member’s experience.

Ed Sandison, the founder of Ocean Tee, said: “We’ve had a fantastic response to our biodegradable bamboo tees since we entered the market. There is a real appetite for sustainability, and as you can see from the recent ban of plastic tees at several courses, getting plastic out of the club eco-system is a great first step.

“With our Crowd Initiative, we’ve found a way to help more clubs make the switch to sustainable tees but, to make it a success, we need the UK’s golfers to tell their clubs that going plastic free and reducing their environmental impact is important to them.”


From now until to March 2, 2020, Ocean Tee will recruit a minimum of 25 clubs to be part of the initiative. In the event that 25 sign up within the limited eight-week period, Ocean Tee has committed to providing one of two complete tee packages to participants at a dramatically reduced cost.

This enables clubs to remove plastic tees and wooden tees packaged in plastic from the course and benefit from a commercial package that wouldn’t be possible on a club-by-club basis. And with 25% of all Ocean Tee profit going to environmental charities, the clubs signing up to be one of the first in this innovative scheme will make double the positive impact.

“Ocean Tee has sustainability at its heart and we’re committed to helping clubs all over the UK implement the small changes that can make a real difference,” added Sandison. “But we know that all change starts with a single voice. So, if any golfers want to make a difference at their club, we want them to tell the captain, the pro or the secretary about the Ocean Crowd and encourage them to find out more about our commercially viable, environmental, sustainable initiative.”
