It's about 9,500 times as tall as a Golf Tee
In other words, the height of a Golf Tee is 0.00011 times 0.5080 kilometers.
The most common golf tee size and the length preferred for iron and most wood clubs is 0.0000540 kilometers tall.

(长城, 長城, Chángchéng, a.k.a. 万里长城, 萬里長城, Wànlǐ Chángchéng) (a.k.a. "The long wall of 10,000 Li") (from Shanhaiguan through Lop Nur, China) (wall segments only)
The Great Wall of China has total wall segment length of 6.2590 kilometers. Built and maintained in multiple sections over about eleven centuries, the Great Wall is currently suffering the effects of erosion, especially in the older sections made primarily out of mud.
It's about one-fifteen-thousandth as long as The Amazon River
