Providence- It’s not often that a Rhode Island company attracts the attention of the world-wide golf industry, but that’s exactly what the Green Friendly Golf Company has accomplished in 2005, thanks to some revolutionary product development, including the debut of the Green Friendly Golf Belt. www.greenfriendlygolf.com
The Green Friendly Golf Belt is "the world’s only true golf belt" to combine fashion and function. The quality leather belt has a stylish, scientifically designed divot tool and ball marker built right into its tip, combining a beautiful look with two key accessories a golfer needs for success on the green. In addition to the original croc-embossed belt, a new colorful ladies line is set for release in January 2006.
No more fumbling for a divot tool or ball marker in your pocket, or losing them out on the course, because now, "the tool is in the tip," where it is always easily accessible. The revolutionary, one-of-a-kind divot tool is the only purposely designed divot replacement tool on the golf market today that is guaranteed to leave the green a healthier place. The divot tool’s short forks do not penetrate below the green’s root system, which helps prevent the grass from being damaged.
The Green Friendly Golf Belt is made from 100% full-grain leather and is double stitched for years of wear. The high polish nickel finish on the buckle and divot tool is both stylish and rust resistant. The belt can be easily personalized with a laser engraved company or corporation logo.
Rick Schad, a lifelong golfer and graphic designer originally conceived the Green Friendly Golf Belt. Schad was determined to find a better solution to repairing divot holes on the green. Together with partners Steve Walsh and Akim Msumba, the three established the Green Friendly Golf Company, which currently has plans to design and manufacture a range of golf accessories that will not only improve the golfing experience, but will bring back "essential etiquette" to the game of golf.
"Players will appreciate the convenience of always having a ball marker and divot tool at their fingertips, and golf courses will appreciate the improved quality of the greens and resulting lower maintenance," says Rick Schad. "The Green Friendly Golf Belt is the first of a series of essential golf accessories to be offered by the company." Schad also says "nobody should lose a tournament or important match because their ball had to travel in the path of an unfixed divot."
The Green Friendly Golf Belt was a featured accessory product at the 2005 PGA Merchandise Show in Las Vegas, which was attended by the golf industry’s top manufacturers. The belt was individually recognized at the show for its beauty and style, and for its ability to help preserve the condition of the greens on the golf course. The Green Friendly Golf Belt will also be featured at the upcoming 2006 PGA Merchandise show in Orlando, January 26th to 29th (www.pgamerchandiseshow.com).
