GelTees Introduces 100 Percent Biodegradable Golf Tees
GelTees is a green friendly innovation that has been in development and rigorous testing for several years by Jonathan Gilinski, President and CEO of Capsuline, a leading manufacturer of gelatin capsules for the pharmaceutical industry. Having an in-depth knowledge of the biodegradable properties of gelatin, and a love for golf, Gilinski was able to convert gelatin byproduct into an eco-friendly tee for golfers. Made of 100 percent pharmaceutical grade gelatin, GelTees completely biodegrade within a few days of being left in the elements.
“At the recent PGA Show, I was looking for innovative products for golf course owners and operators,” said Mike Tinkey, former Deputy CEO of the National Golf Course Owners Association and President of TinkeyWorks. “GelTees provides a green friendly alternative that is good for the planet and the game.”
Tee boxes littered with broken wooden tees and plastic tees are a source of contention for golf course superintendents and directors of golf worldwide. “More than an eyesore, broken tees represent both a safety hazard and extra expense for the golf course,” said Kevin Sternett, Head Golf Professional at the Golden Bear Club at Keene’s Pointe in Orlando.
Tee it. Crush it. Forget it. Save your back and never pick up a tee again. Designed for one-time use, GelTees shatter into tiny pieces on impact. The moisture from the grass, daily irrigation, and weather conditions dissolves the tees completely.
“The golf tee has evolved,” said Tiger Summers, COO of GelTees. “GelTees are the world’s only fully biodegradable golf tees benefiting both the golfer and the course.”
GelTees are available at Amazon, Jet.com and Walmart. For pricing and additional info, visit www.geltees.com or contact Tiger Summers, firstname.lastname@example.org, 954-975-6623.
