As lifelong golfers ourselves, we are passionate about protecting the beauty of our golf courses, and the wider natural world. Our brand is leading the way in providing golfers with high quality and eco-friendly golf products. We believe that making green choices shouldn’t involve compromising on the quality, or style, of your golf equipment.
Recycled ‘Lake’ Balls
300 million golf balls are lost every year in the US alone, with likely millions more worldwide. Each of these balls contains plastic equivalent to seven plastic grocery bags or three plastic water bottles. As well as using valuable resources, lost or abandoned golf balls can enter ecosystems, releasing micro plastics and toxic chemicals into food chains.
By buying recycled golf balls you are helping combat this huge environmental problem in two ways. Firstly, by not buying new balls you are reducing the use of valuable fossil fuels. Secondly, you are supporting an industry which clears lost or abandoned balls from the environment, thus protecting natural habitats.
We have been selling recycled golf balls for many years. These are recovered primarily from lakes and then washed, sorted and graded so that they can be reused until they are no longer serviceable. At this point, they can be refurbished and used once again.
Plastic Free Golf Gloves
We are excited to stock the first golf gloves made entirely free of plastic. These are made from premium soft sheep’s leather and use a reusable fastener instead of Velcro. On retiring the glove, this fastener can be sent back to us for reuse, in return for a discount on your next glove. The glove’s elastic is made from natural rubber obtained from sustainable rubber trees.
1.5 billion tees are sold every year and often lost or left abandoned on golf courses. These predominantly plastic tees remain in the ecosystem without being broken down for decades, where they may harm animals and other natural life. Furthermore, garishly coloured tees are attractive to certain bird species, who may pick them up and drop them into other environments, including beauty spots and water-ways. Increasingly, golf clubs are recognising this problem and banning plastic tees on their courses.
We are a leading UK supplier for both Wooden Castle Tees and Wooden straight tees. These are made from natural wood from a sustainable source, which is less damaging to ecosystems.
