Knetgolf.com, the world’s largest Internet seller of half-priced premium recycled golf balls, has partnered with an international promotional company to offer Knetgolf customers in 48 US states and 10 Canadian provinces a free round of golf when they buy over $99 worth of recycled golf balls online.
In an exclusive arrangement, Knetgolf has entered into the first online free golf partnership with TLC Marketing of Boston, Massachusetts, an international promotional company that has run promotions for companies such as Sears, American Express, Dunkin Donuts, Amtrak, and many others.
“With spring in the air, and golfers salivating to hit the links, we believe this exclusive offer will attract new customers to Knetgolf—where they can discover the price-saving concept of purchasing premium recycled golf balls online for at least half the price of new balls,” said Gary Shienfield, co-owner of the 12-year-old Knetgolf.com. “It is also a way to reward our decidedly loyal customers who have learned that they can save big on costly golf balls, a commodity that they buy, lose, and repurchase on a regular basis. The value of the free round is between $30 and $60, depending on participating courses in areas where golfers live. It’s really almost like getting the golf balls for next to nothing.”
“It is also a great deal for the participating golf courses,” Shienfield added. “In this ever-competitive environment, they get additional traffic and can introduce more golfers to their courses. And all early indications are that our customers like this new offer even if they belong to a country club. Everyone knows someone they can give the free round to.”
Upon checking out with over $99 worth of golf balls, Knetgolf customers select either a free round of golf or free shipping. When they receive their golf balls, they also receive a voucher, valid until one year from the date of issue. They visit the website on the voucher, enter a unique PIN and receive a golf voucher listing participating golf courses within 45 miles of their homes. Then they book a tee of time, redeem the voucher and enjoy a free round (18 holes!) of golf.
“With the price of golf balls rising every year and topping out at over $40 per dozen, golf balls are a recurring consumable and a costly expense,” noted Mr. Shienfield. This year, over 100,000 golfers will order over 5,000,000 golf balls from North America’s largest Internet premium recycled golf ball outlet—Knetgolf.com.
Knetgolf, home of the half-price golf ball, has made it easy for golfers to play with the latest and greatest balls on the market, all for a fraction of what new golf balls cost at pro-shops or retail outlets. Knetgolf customers can choose from their favorite brands, including Titleist, Callaway, Dunlop, Nike, Precept, Maxfli, Srixon, Pinnacle, Hogan, Strata, Top Flite, Prostaff, Ultra, Wilson, Slazenger, Volvik, and other leading brands.
Instead of manufacturing golf balls and competing against the major brands for market share, Knetgolf crews recover golf balls at over 500 high quality golf courses, mostly from the desert in the southwest United States. Knetgolf’s staff clean, grade, sort and package the recycled golf balls, and golfers get a significant break on the price of their golf balls.
Information on the Knetgolf web site (www.knetgolf.com) even helps novice golfers choose the right ball for their game. According to Alexa.com, a web site that measure web traffic, Knetgolf is the 10th most visited site related to "golf" out of all golf-related sites. (Details: www.alexa.com/browse?&CategoryID=30359.)
