Where the term "tee box" originates?

Nowadays, tee box is another term for the teeing ground and refers to the area in-between two tee markers and two club-lengths back from the tee markers. However, according to golf history, tee box initially had another meaning. Before wooden golf tees were invented, golfers put their ball on top of a small mound of wet sand. The sand was provided in a box that was stationed on each teeing ground. That’s where the term "tee box" originates.
