Pour que le green soit clean
Pour que le green soit clean
My name is Franck. After some experience in the world of business, I have decided to take a chance to make a living out of my passion, the golf.
My adventure started one year ago when I designed a new and unique model of divot repair tool displayed in an original box.
Since then, I have been around the French golf courses striving to promote my product while facing the challenges of every single entrepreneur!
To my great satisfaction, my product has received an enthusiastic welcome.
In order to pursue this adventure, I must develop and I need a boost to start the 2nd stage of a trip that will hopefully be as long as possible.
In advance, thank you to all Kissbankers for their generosity!
The more we are, the least I’ll fall into the hole of the green of the golf course !
WHAT IS A DIVOT REPAIR TOOL?
Golf is a sport which offers a lesson of good manners. On the course, courtesy and respect to the players as to the green are part of the rules. It is the etiquette.
My idea was to encourage those rules and good manners and to make this sport more accessible as it still regarded in France as an elitist leisure activity. I designed an essential and affordable object, cheaper than what is on the market: the divot repair tool. It is used to repair ball marks from golf balls that land on the green.
THE ADVANTAGES OF MY PRODUCTS
To rewrite the golf’s traditional codes and break from the game’s usual sobriety, I’ve designed a colourful divot repair tool in 10 different varieties.
Made with steel, shaped in wire, my divot repair tool is light, resistant, convenient and elegant.
It is equipped with a clipped ball-mark, another accessory used on the green to avoid disturbing the position of the other balls.
It is displayed in a box which also acts as a promotional object.
Last but not least, the box and its tools are entirely made in France, by craftspeople of my area, the Pays-de-la-Loire.
The color, the original design, the real user friendliness as well as the recommended sales price have appealed to everyone who has used it.
Allocation of funds
Today the box Zanahary is established in over 50 golf courses and 23 French departments.
Those promising results enable me to consider the second phase of my project:
- To develop the commercial tools to prospective advertisers, sponsors, investors, partners…
- To design and implement a promotion and communication strategy
… while continuing to introduce the box to the French golf courses (700 in France, there’s still a long way to go…) and widening the scope towards new targets (proshops, companies…)
