The City of Mesa and the Mesa Convention & Visitors Bureau have declared the “Dixon Earth” the official golf ball of Mesa. That’s right, manufactured by Dixon Golf, the creator of the world’s first high-performance, entirely eco-friendly golf balls, the Dixon Earth will now be available on golf courses throughout Mesa and, hopefully soon, many more.
Dixon Earth golf balls aren’t made using the same harsh materials and chemicals as are involved in the making of traditional balls, meaning you won’t find any tungsten, cobalt or lead in these little beauties. And in fact, the Dixon Earth balls are also free of non-renewable synthetic materials. Green to their cores, as the manufacturer boasts, Dixon golf balls are 100-percent recyclable and made from reprocessable materials, then packaged in 100-percent recycled material to make your next round of golf as environmentally guilt-free as possible.
Established in Mesa in 2008, Dixon Golf and its products have been well received in Arizona and beyond. In addition to the City of Mesa, the Dixon Earth ball is also the official ball of the Arizona Cardinals Charities, the San Diego Kiwanis Club, the City of El Segundo, Calif., the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and others.
Dixon Earth golf balls retail for about $40 per dozen, and the special edition balls for Mesa will feature limited-edition packaging displaying the Red Mountain, a prominent landmark visible from many of the city’s signature golf courses. A limited quantity of these are being made and will be available for purchase at local pro shops and online.
