Wanted: One Scuba Diver To Fish For Golf Balls

#Diving - BreakingNews.ie reports on one entrepreneur's oddball request for a Scuba diver to fish lakes and streams at golf courses across the country for lost golf balls.

Richard Noonan of Encore Golf Balls says water hazards at Irish golf courses hold "thousands" of lost balls that are a lucrative bounty for anyone with the wherewithal to recycle them.

Noonan currently sells golf balls retrieved by a dive team in Spain, but as he says himself: "Why get someone to do it in Spain when you can do it here cheaper?"

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
