THE innovative new pocket-sized golf ball and iron-cleaner, Green Sleeve, is celebrating after a hugely successful debut in the UK golf market at The Golf Show, Harrogate.
The revolutionary product – the brainchild of New Forest-based businessman Oliver Nimenko – is a unique addition to the golf accessories market, designed to be used primarily on and around the green.
Deep-cleaning microfibres – which have been rigorously-tested to ensure maximum cleaning power – line the knitted, conveniently pocket-sized sleeve, allowing dirty and muddy balls to be cleaned quickly and easily, without going to back to your golf bag or trolley.
These same microfibres are also designed to remove loose mud and sand from the iron heads, to aid ball-striking both from the fairway, rough and sand.
And after exhibiting the product at the prestigious golf trade show at the Harrogate International Centre, Green Sleeve were delighted to receive huge interest from the golf market – and a large number of orders from golf clubs around the UK.
Company director Oliver said: “We had hoped to make a splash at The Golf Show in Harrogate, and we’re thrilled to say that the reaction from the UK golf trade was great.
“It was fantastic to get the word out about Green Sleeve – a product we’re incredibly excited about and which we believe fills the gap in the market for a pocket-sized ball and iron cleaner, that’s more convenient than a regular golf towel.
“The opportunity for businesses, brands and individual golf clubs to create their own, personalised and bespoke version of the Green Sleeve, featuring their brand colours and logo, really seemed to grab people’s attention and after Harrogate, we’re really gearing up for a successful 2015.”
Green Sleeves retail at £8.99 each (including free postage) and are available from greensleevegolf.com in a range of colours including ‘The Original’ all-green Green Sleeve.
Despite being designed in the UK, the product was initially launched in the USA, where it has proved a huge hit with golfers and the golf trade alike – with the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) an early adopter of the brand.
