I assume the short fairway grass is the one to be used. Based on how this works I assum it doesnt take a real tee?
That's the one. Unfortunately, $125 USD shipped to Eastern Canada with duty would run around $250 CAD. This is quite steep for what it is. I think I am going to be able to make two of them for about $25 since I already have the hitting surface. I apologize if that wasn't the point of your question.
I will be using short fairway grass. I will be modifying the Ultimate Par commercial hitting strip from AllTurfMats, the grass surface is quite nice and seems robust. It does transfer a little bit of green dye onto the sole of your clubs, very little though compared to some driving range mats.
As far as the real tee part, I have one of those very short rubber tees that has an "x" cut into it to accept a real tee. I plan to glue that into the DA insert. It actually sits under the hitting surface so it doesn't get in the way while hitting. Painted it black as well so it doesn't interfere with the GC2 readings. Also paint white tees for the same reason.
