As Managers within the golfing sector you are no doubt aware, there currently exists a concerted drive by Golf’s governing bodies and golf associations toward sustainable golf including pro-sustainable management and maintenance of golf courses. Indeed, some of the games most prominent names support golf’s drive toward sustainability.
“Golf courses and the environment co-exist in nature. It is our obligation to continue to develop them responsibly and continue to preserve the natural habitat for the beauty of the game.”
– Greg Norman, Chairman of the Environmental Institute for Golf.
Saving your course actually can make more revenue
Many golf clubs are experiencing a ‘cost revenue squeeze’. Revenue is down and costs are up so it is a difficult time to consider spending on saving the planet. As we said before sustainability and golf revenue are no longer mutually exclusive. Perhaps your club is already utilising a turf protection device similar to a portable golf mat to protect your course from divots.
We applaud your forward-thinking attitude and hope that these golfing mats have indeed resulted in fewer divots, less maintenance and subsequent savings on costs to you and to our environment. You may have discovered that the portable mats you provide are a lost cost to you and/or are a variety of mat that vexes many of your players. The old mats can ad up to an expensive giveaway as well; we recently visited a golfer’s garage that contained more than 20 free fairway mats. Our Smart Mat will stop those losses, improve golf revenue, reduce pre-tournament closure periods and brighten the disposition of your golfers.
You can start with a small order of one box of 50 sets. Then you will be well on your way to realising the dividends that divotEND can bring your club, your players, your sustainability performance and to your bottom line.
