Pride Sports has donated a total of 25,000 Pride Golf Tees to help children from different backgrounds and abilities drive off in style and to enjoy all the benefits that golf can offer young people.
It is the fourth year in succession that Pride Golf Tee has signed up as the Official Tee Supplier to the Golf Foundation, which is a charity committed to the sporting and social development of young people through golf.
Mike Round, Chief Executive of the Golf Foundation, said: “This is a great demonstration of support for grass roots junior golf from Pride Sports. Our continuing relationship shows how a commercial brand can help the future of the golf industry.
“The Foundation’s grass roots junior development programmes, working in support of the national golf partnerships, all help to increase the number of people enjoying this sport. We believe this is something worth backing.”
Each of the 3,125 Pride Golf Tee packs contains eight Professional Tee System tees. The tees will be used during a range of Golf Foundation school and community golf initiatives, from the inner city ‘Golf Roots‘ project which helps urban youngsters get into golf, to junior activity at golf clubs, where children learn all the aspects of the game and work towards their first handicap using the Foundation’s Junior Golf Passport, the officially recognised structured learning programme for golf.
On a promotional level, the tees will be available to golfers at public events and as part of the Foundation’s ongoing marketing activity. Junior golfers and their supporters will see the tees at European Tour events and in ‘goody-bags‘ when competing in the Golf Foundation Pro-Am and the Foundation’s Adult/Junior Foursomes competitions, held throughout England, Scotland and Wales.
“Pride Sports is delighted to continue its support of the Golf Foundation as their Official Tee Supplier. The way they promote the game through such fantastic initiatives as Golf Roots is pivotal in introducing youngsters from different backgrounds to the game of golf,” commented Louise Roe, International Sales and Marketing Manager of Pride Sports.
Each Pride Golf Tee Professional Tee System pack contains pairs of tees of four different lengths, designed to be used with irons, fairway woods and different sizes of driver.
