Orange Holefast tees were made during the 1920s, when metal tees tried to make inroads into the golf market. , The great durability of a metal seemed like a winning idea when first formed into a tee c. 1920. Unfortunately, for those who began to make metal tees, it was not such a good idea. These nearly indestructible tees would wear on club faces and, when lost after a shot, cause damage to mowers during inevitible encounters.
Hence, the Holefast tee. It sought to solve the damage problem, at least part of it anyway, by making tees with a a paper mache top. The paper mache top is advertised on the back of the box.
This box is missing its lid, and has a bit of damage on its back. Nevertheless, it still presents well and the graphics are strong.
