Follow Your Ball – Worldwide Offgolf Foundation
One does not need a manicured lawn or an overpriced club membership to play golf. The alternative is offgolf! We know and love it, but the majority of people remain out of the loop.
Follow Your Ball recognizes that many people are never afforded the opportunity to play offgolf simply because they don’t have access to proper equipment and works to change this fact by collecting ‘old’ golf equipment and making it readily available to anyone daring enough to thwack a ball out of the bounds of a classic golf course.
Donations of all sorts are welcome! Don’t be shy to send us your wood, iron or putting clubs and even your range, night, wood or plastiktee balls. You can rest assured that your old equipment will be recycled to allow those that are curious take their first off course adventure. Now there’s a cause that all who love offgolf can get behind!
Follow Your Ball was founded in 2015 with its head office is in Switzerland, but has spread worldwide since.
The foundation has two active projects. The first has been underway since 2013 in Myanmar (Burma). The second project involves a school in the Gurage region of Ethiopia, a tiny place on the immense continent of Africa. In fact, the next largest city is located 5 hours away by car! The founders of Follow Your Ball, Didi Keller and Manuel Ruegg either personally deliver the equipment or have a close associate take on the task. For this reason, an intense and special friendship is blossoming between the students and the foundation. Follow Your Ball intends to nurture the seeds of this relationship in the hopes of seeing it grow and flourish for years to come.
Below is a list of our collectors. Alternatively, you can directly deliver donations to our head office. Remember, all donated equipment will happily be reused so don’t make the mistake of throwing away anything.
If you’d like to serve as a collector for us, please contact us at the following address:
"Follow Your Ball", Zuercherstrasse 122, 8500 Frauenfeld, Switzerland.
We look forward to working with you!
