Advertising Flagsticks debut at European Open

12.20am 17th July 2006 - Corporate

Golf Flagstick Advertising had their patented Flagsticks on the practice chipping green and range at the European Open (July 6th-July 9th) complete with the Smurfit Kappa branding. The event, hosted at The Ryder Cup venue the K Club, was the first opportunity in Europe for sponsors and spectators to see this innovative course furniture in position at a professional tournament.
Fully conforming to the R&A and USGA ‘rules of golf’, the Advertising Flagsticks contributed additional Smurfit Kappa brand visibility in a normally barren corner of a tournament course.
Sponsors and promoters are now seeing the benefits of having Golf Flagstick Advertising also on the 18 greens, traditionally areas difficult to achieve Sponsor or Tournament partner brand continuity.
Golf Flagstick Advertising offers event organisers and course operators an additional revenue stream through commissions on sponsors’ and advertisers’ usage of the Advertising Flagsticks at corporate days, charity events and tournaments.
Golf Flagstick Advertising launched earlier this year in the USA where considerable interest has been generated. The European launch is now underway with initial events signed up.
