Thanks to Kyle Porter for spotting this video on Guinness branding a Casey, Illinois golf tee made by Brolin Enterprises as the world's largest.

It weighs 6,000 pounds and is 30 feet long.

Somewhat pointless but I suppose it keeps people in jobs.

It would be a dull existence if every object in our world had to be made to satisfy a utility.
As a semi retired carpenter / cabinet maker, that looks to have been a fun project to have been a part of.

Not sure even seeing the worlds largest golf tee would make this a golf destination....

The 9-hole "Casey" course at the Casey Country Club facility in Casey, Illinois features 2,936 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 35 . The course rating is 68.2 and it has a slope rating of 116. Casey golf course opened in 1939.

I suppose with a properly-scaled golf ball, this will solve the distance issues.

Doesn't seem pointless to me.

At first glance, golf seems pointless to a lot of people.
Hate to see the driver.........
WOW. I was thinking about the driver as well. It could be persimmon, and whack it a long way, taking out trees, houses, big box stores, car dealerships, and other assorted strutures, not to mention cars, 18 wheelers, etc before finally reaching the ocean.

As breed says....LET'S DO IT!

Seriously, if people make trips to see the largest ball of string, Santa Monica pier, The Capitol, then why not a big ole golf tee? Pretty cool.

BTW, Austin had 25 large Gibson Les Pauls all about the city, with a decorating contest, and then a charity auction.

The tee is a homerun.
