In golf, the teeing ground is the rectangular area at the beginning of a hole from which the player's first stroke is taken.
The boundaries of the teeing ground are defined by a pair of tee markers.

A hole of golf consists of hitting a ball from a tee on the teeing ground (a marked area designated for the first shot of a hole), and continuing to strike the ball till it comes to rest in the cup.

Tees resemble nails with a flattened head and are usually made of wood or plastic.

It should be noted that "hole" can mean either the actual hole in the ground into which the ball is played, or the whole area from the teeing ground (an area of specially prepared grass from where a ball is first hit) to the putting green (the area around the actual hole in the ground).
The par of a hole is defined by the distance from tee to green.
To hit the ball, the club is swung at the motionless ball on the ground (or wherever it has come to rest) from a side stance.

Golf is a game in which a ball is struck with a club from a prepared area, known as the "teeing ground", across fairway and rough to a second prepared area, which has a hole in it, known as the "putting green".
The object of the game is to complete what is known as a hole by playing a ball from the teeing ground into the hole on the putting green in the fewest possible number of strokes.
Teeing off outside this area - in match play there is no penalty but your opponent may ask you to replay your stroke; in stroke play you incur a two-stroke penalty and must then play from within the proper area.

The teeing ground is technically the area between the markers and two club lengths behind the markers.
When you are on the tee the most important thing to keep in mind is to respect the person hitting.
And since the tee markers are moved around the tee on a regular basis, the ruts could easily damage a part of the tee that will later be used as the teeing ground.
