Industry’s First Backpack Divot Repair System

3.17am 14th February 2011 - New Products

DivotPack ™ – a unique, patent-pending, dry sand mixture dispenser for repairing golf course divots – was unveiled last week at the Golf Industry Show (GIS) in Orlando.

DivotPack is the golf industry’s first divot repair system that comes in the form of a lightweight, soft-sided backpack. Dispensing a fast and accurate application of sand mixture through a gravity fed tube, the mixture is released via a handheld control valve.

Designed for comfort, the DivotPack divot repair system reduces fatigue, back strain and staff injury by replacing the tedious, time consuming and backbreaking practice of filling divots by hand.

“DivotPack makes repairing the scars left behind on the golf course a nonissue,” said Jeff Johnson, golf course superintendent, The Minikahda Club. “The process is effortless and makes filling divots a breeze. Members are bound to notice an improvement in overall playing conditions and with the time and money we save on divot repair, DivotPack pays for itself in labor savings alone.”

DivotPack offers a three-gallon, dry divot mixture tank capacity with a flip top lid and buckle closure that makes refills quick and easy, keeping staff on the job and providing a simpler way to repair divots.

DivotPack Features:

DivotPack retails for $349 plus tax, shipping and handling.
