This beautiful TopNotTee box includes eleven of its twelve original tees. These tees, with their "cork screw" wire base and wood cup, are among the most creative stick-in-the-ground tees ever invented.   Instructions for use on the back of the box indicates "Push tee into the ground to the height that suits you. DO NOT TWIST. The annealed wire offers no resistance--it gives with the blow. Saves dirt on your hands--smudges on your trousers--paint on your ball--and occasionally saves your temper. This tee doesn't crumble at the critical moment. Uniform driving demands uniform tees--in dry or wet weather. Top Not Tee will soon make this principle clear." Made by the Top Not Tee Company in Yonkers, NY. Original price: 12 for $0.25. A small price to pay to save your temper on the course!

The ad included in the images is from the August 1924 issue of Golfers Magazine.
