We tend to take for granted the golf tees on the Colorful Tees Visa Gift Card, but there was a time not too long ago they didn’t exist. In 1899 Dr. George Grant, a dentist and avid golfer, got tired of carrying a bucket of sand around the course to build little mounds to elevate the ball, so he developed this elegant wooden device. The son of former slaves, Dr. Grant was one of the first African American graduates of Harvard Dental School. His invention changed the game and made it more enjoyable (and set the expectation that dentists would play golf). Golfing friends will enjoy learning the story of golf tees when you give Colorful Tees Visa Gift Cards.
