Sometimes, we come across something we just think is cool… Dixon Golf moving to the Tempe Transportation Center is pretty cool. The analogies run deep with this move and I think many people will benefit from this addition to one of the greenest buildings around.
Recently, I met with my new friend William Carey at the new Dixon Golf space in Tempe and discussed many aspects of his business, their products, and their decision to locate at the Tempe Transportation Center. Smart business owners are often easy to spot. We talked for about an hour but within minutes of my arrival at his business, I knew this was a guy that has a lot of cool ideas, a true passion for his business, and a real desire to make a difference in our community and in the business of golf. In moving to the Tempe Transportation Center, William liked the fact that the building is “one of the most eco-friendly buildings in the country” and they chose it, in part, because their company philosophy fits the building and it’s design.
“Unlike some Golf Ball Brands that use harsh heavy-metal pollutants like tungsten, cobalt, lead or contain non-renewable synthetic materials and compounds; all balls manufactured by Dixon Golf are “green” to the core. They are 100% recyclable and made from reprocessable materials. Even the packaging is made from 100% recycled material.”
Who is Dixon Golf? Dixon Golf is a company that has created the world’s first high-performance eco-friendly golf balls. During my talk with William, I learned that there are 300 million golf balls discarded each year. Note: This number has come down slightly in the past few years since I quit playing regularly but may rise slightly as my interest in the game is again beginning to get the best of me. I also learned that Dixon Golf is a much larger company than I realized and their growth curve seems to be very steep.
“Everything we do as a company, from golf balls to apparel, everything is eco-friendly.“ – William Carey, Dixon Golf.
The Tempe Transportation Center is located at 200 E 5th Street in Tempe and is served by the light rail station at Veterans Way and College which is also known as Sun Devil Station near the ASU campus. This convenient location will be a great fit for a “green minded” company such as Dixon Golf.
