DP World gives used golf balls second life with shipping container

DP World's Golf Ball Container

DP World’s unique Second Life Container is returning for the 2023/24 DP World Tour season, as the global supply chain company continues its efforts to grow grassroots golf around the world.

The 20-foot shipping container is an innovative concept designed to give golf balls a second life in grassroots golf projects around the world. Rather than ending up in landfills, or hidden away in cupboards at home, the unwanted golf balls collected during the season will be repurposed and redistributed to support grassroots golf projects, helping to give more people access to the sport.

Over the past two seasons, 280,000 golf balls have been collected in numerous ways as the Second Life container, covered thousands of kilometres across land and sea. Donations were made from DP World Tour players, fans, governing bodies, professional golf ball divers, ball-collecting dogs, and children’s golf ball hunts. So far, balls have been sent to initiatives around the world, including Junior Golf Foundation in Kenya, the South African Disabled Golf Association and Golf Foundation India.
