just started playing golf, but not sure what size tee to use.

Only playing on a par 3 course so using irons when teeing but my question is what size of tee should i use:confused:
im currently using ones that are about 30m off the ground (thne ball on top) but i just think its a bit high??

Personally, I almost never use a tee on a par 3. Some people say you should because you can hit it further. If you need more distance on a par 3, take more club. If you do tee it up, it should be just above the ground with short irons, about 1 cm up with mid irons, and a few cm with the long irons. If you play a long par 3 that you need a wood for, tee it up so that a little more than half the ball is above the clubface.

Wow I've never heard of anyone teeing the ball up 30 meters above ground!!! I know what you meant. ;) Anyways, just try using a regular tee at regular medium distance into the ground. If that doesn't work out, try teeing it up higher. It's all about your preference.

Hehehe ... good one on the 30 meters. On a par 3 course, I don't usually use tees either, but I do see other people using them. I think I'd tend to keep them pretty low or you might go somewhere you don't want to right off the tee, but I don't have much experience to base that on. Have you tried the par 3 without tees? You might want to give that a try and see if it works better for you.
