If you are a golfer that spends time on the driving range, you are well aware of the challenges presented by the heat and sun during the warmer months of the year. While solutions exist in the market to provide shade on the driving range, they are in use by less than 1% of the golfers that need them. This limited availability is due to the cost, size and dependence on a golf facility to provide them.
The Shade Tee is a personal and inexpensive product offering a solution to the range shade problem to every golfer.
The Shade Tee is light weight and portable. Weighing just over 4 pounds and packaging into 46”, which is 1/2" longer than the average driver, the Shade Tee easily fits in a standard golf bag for transportation to the driving range, while also acting as a protective spine for clubs during air transportation . The Shade Tee storage bag features a shoulder strap as an alternative to in bag transportation.
Upon arrival at the range, Shade Tee set up is easy and quick taking less than one minute. After removing from the storage bag, screw the super stake into the threaded insert in the bottom pole of the Shade Tee. Next open the UPF 50+ canopy and insert the pin through the main hub to secure the canopy in the open position.
The canopy features a strong 8mm fiberglass frame and flattened, vented canopy designed to make the ShadeTee wind resistant. While the Shade Tee has been tested in and is rated to perform in sustained winds of 15 mph, sound judgement and care should be taken as to whether to utilize the Shade Tee on windy days. In no case should the Shade Tee ever be left unattended in the open position on windy conditions. During pauses in use, the Shade Tee canopy should be closed to prevent an unexpected heavy gust of wind from damaging the unit.
Once the canopy is open and secure, the next step is to set the Shade Tee to your desired height. This is done by adjustment of the three section, twist locking, telescopic pole. For most common height settings, we recommend that the top or smallest pole be fully extended and locked in place first. The twist locking mechanism is based on the right hand rule where the pole to be locked in place be turned to the right or clockwise to lock. Holding the middle pole with the left hand, twist the top pole right with the right hand to lock it in place. Continue twisting until moderate resistance is felt. Over tightening could cause damage to the locking mechanism inside the pole. Next, raise the middle pole to adjust the canopy to the desired height and while holding the bottom pole with the left hand, twist the middle pole to the right with the right hand until moderate resistance is felt.
Finally, determine the exact location on the range where you would like to locate the Shade Tee. The location of the Shade Tee will be dependent on the position of the sun in the sky. Once a suitable location is determined, orient the Shade Tee as perfectly vertical as possible and while holding the pole of the Shade Tee in place with both hands, step on the super stake to fully push in into the turf. Keeping the Shade Tee vertical and thus the canopy as horizontally flat as possible enables optimum Shade Tee Performance in the wind. The Shade Tee is now ready to use.

Anderson Golf was founded June 6, 2016 by Daren Anderson for the purpose of bringing great ideas for golfers to the market born out of necessity experienced by almost 50 years as a golfer himself.
The first idea is CartSkinz, "The neatest golf idea on the Planet". After years of tolerating those black, impossible to remove mystery marks on the right pocket of his golf pants, It was determined that these black marks occur when rubbing against the golf cart steering wheel when exiting and entering the driver’s side of the golf cart 50+ times per round. What happens is when pants fabric is pinched between a rubber golf cart steering wheel and hard objects in a golfers pocket such as a golf ball, tees, divot repair tool or ball markers, rubber is scrubbed off of the steering wheel and into the fibers of the pants fabric accounting for why the marks are so difficult to launder... they are not dirt, they are rubber particles imbedded into the fabric fibers. After months of experimenting with how best to solve the problem for all golfers, not just those that own their own cart, it was determined that a universal fit elastic neoprene steering wheel cover was the most practical and best solution and the CartSkinz concept was born. Further enhancing the value of the CartSkinz, they are available in custom wrap colors, with any logo and treated with an anti-microbial agent that prevents the spread of germs and micro-organisms, making CartSkinz the only anti-microbial steering wheel cover in existence earning it patent pending status.
Next was ShadeTee, "The coolest golf idea on the Planet". When living in Austin, Texas in the early 2000’s, The covered Golf Smith driving range provided the shade that was absolutely required to be able to practice during the day in the hot Texas summers. Upon relocation to Pinehurst in 2007, a large Crepe Myrtle on the famed Manic Hill driving range provided shade every afternoon when players were moved back to the mats making the mats shaded by the Crepe Myrtle the clear popular choice by those seeking a pleasant, safe practice session. Expanding on this idea, Daren set out to develop a lightweight, portable, affordable design that could be used to make any tee a shaded tee, the result being the Patented Shade Tee portable range shade.
