SD-01 Yellow AF
Based out of Carlow IT and a graduate of Enterprise Ireland’s start-up development program, Seed has quickly developed a cult following for producing golf balls that offer great performance with even greater value
Ideal for those overcast winter rounds, the new Yellow SD-01 features an ‘Adularescence Fluorescence’ cover finish. Adularescence is an iridescence originating from the cover surface and occurs when light is reflected from the outer cover layer.
In layman terms, that means a brighter, neon yellow colour that gives maximum visibility for any weather or sky conditions. Ships with all the performance you’ve come to love from the SD-01, now in Yellow AF.
Now Shipping – €25 per dozen S&H

Nothing says love like a voucher
Seriously! A €100 voucher in the pro shop could go a long way for the golfer in your life while helping the club they call home each week.
Winter is a notoriously tough time for golf clubs around the country and few suffer more than PGA Professionals when it comes to golfers hibernating through the barren months. So, rather than encourage the cobwebs to increase on clubs long banished to the shed, pick up a voucher at your local club.
From clothing attire to equipment and accessories, to more practical endeavours like changing all 14 grips on your clubs or golf lessons through winter, in golfing terms at least, nothing says love like a voucher.
Go Garmin for the perfect pin seeking present
We’ve been playing around with the Z80 GPS laser range finder from Garmin for some time now and this piece of equipment is crazy accurate.
It provides you with a new perspective on more than 41,000 courses worldwide and although we haven’t had the time to play that many, this piece of laser vision has enhanced our golf experience every time.
Looking through the viewfinder, you can see the view you ranged to as well as a full-colour CourseView overlay in 2-D for the hole you’re playing, showing distances to hazards and to the front and back of the green. Then when you activate the laser range finder, you get absolute precise distances to any ranged target within 10”.
Perfection comes at a cost at €660 but we think the gift of sight is worth it.

PuttOUT the ideal gift under your tree
Practice makes perfect, or so we’ve been told and with that in mind, and given the volatile nature of an Irish winter climate, what better way to help hone the skills of a loved one than introducing them to PuttOUT.
This scientifically developed putting aid can literally be used anywhere and with its shaped parabolic ramp, each made putt is returned to the player the same distance it would have gone past the hole had it missed, anything else is just a miss.
With PuttOUT, only putts of absolute perfection will hold in the micro-target, so let the practice begin.
Available at McGuirks Golf for €24.95.
