Uther Magnetic Golf Bag / Ecosystem

TORONTO, ON – Uther, who has made a name in the golf industry by creating the first golf towel with designs, as well the original golf ball collection with icons, has ventured to create a novel magnetic golf bag ecosystem. The Mag Bag, (MB1 cvl), the centerpiece of the ecosystem, features a lightweight magnetic plate that is completely hidden and weighs only 0.35 lbs with a width of 0.6MM.

The patent pending ecosystem offers improved convenience to golfers by being able to quickly access their most used accessories.

The seven magnetic accessories included in the first launch are a Magnetic Towel, Tee Holder, Ball Pouch, Ball Marker, Glove Keeper, Rangefinder, and Phone Holder. The Mag Phone Holder finally allows golfers to easily capture their golf swing. As well, the accessories come in 3 colors including Onyx, Snow and Sedona, to offer greater personalization.

Another new to market feature that improves convenience, is wrap around zippers of the main pockets. It allows easy visibility and access of the main pockets, and access to 5 inner organizational pockets. Other notable features are a packable rain cover, dual magnetic front pockets, synthetic leather shell and full length dividers.

The Mag Bag took over 3 years and 15 prototypes to develop, with the aim of creating the ultimate golf bag. It marks the start of Uther’s commitment to building the most comprehensive ecosystem in golf.

Audubon International, Invited Strengthen Sustainability Partnership

TROY, NY – Audubon International today announced that Invited, leading owner-operator of membership golf and country clubs, city and stadium clubs in North America, will direct more than 200 of the golf courses in its portfolio to join the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program (ACSP) for Golf and achieve certification over the next several years. Audubon International is the environmentally focused non-profit organization offering members numerous certifications and conservation initiatives to protect the areas where we all live, work, and play.

Currently about 140 of Invited’s courses are ACSP-Certified for golf, making it one of Audubon International’s largest partners in its mission to help golf courses, resorts, hotels, parks, municipalities and businesses become more environmentally sustainable.

By announcing the goal of full ACSP membership and certification for its golf courses, Invited is further elevating its commitment to environmental stewardship and its goal to drive continual improvement across all aspects of the operation.

Begun in 1991 in collaboration with the United States Golf Association, ACSP for Golf certification is the industry’s gold standard for sustainability. Audubon International’s team of experts work hand-in-hand with superintendents and their staffs to achieve stringent, science-based benchmarks based on carefully developed Standard Environmental Management Practices in six key environmental components: Site Assessment an Environmental Planning, Wildlife and Habitat Management, Chemical Use Reduction and Safety, Water Conservation, Water Quality Management, and Outreach and Education. Once certified, each course is re-inspected and re-certified every three years. Currently there are more than 2,000 certified ACSP for Golf courses in the United States and internationally.

Invited, formerly ClubCorp, is a lifestyle hospitality brand founded in 1957 on the traditions and values of acceptance. With these founding principles in mind, the company announced a full rebrand in 2022 with the name and fundamental belief that everyone is “Invited.” The new name conveyed the appropriate hospitality emotion and appeal to match the lifestyle and hospitality service that the company and its members and guests have become accustomed to.
