This is a rare and beautiful find! This vintage metal sand tee would allow a player to scoop up damp sand and press it into the mold, and then the tee would be inverted set on the ground. With a press of the spring button plunger on the top, the sand would eject and be formed to hold a ball.
This tee is well made and has a great, heavy weight to it for its size. The spring-tensioned plunger on top still functions as designed.
Condition is as shown in photographs. This item is located middle top area of the group image.
